After having been a full-time working mom ever since my now 9-year-old daughter was born, I was one of the many victims of a corporate layoff late last year. So the past two weeks have found me embarking on a new adventure, the first summer I've been at home with my daughter! Arts and crafts are bound to fill our days, along with gardening (read "weeding"), bike rides, and water play. Sounds heavenly, even for this Type A, super-busy mom who hasn't quite figured out how to sit still and just enjoy the moment.
And I can already tell that it's going to be a challenge to satisfy our daily snack-time cravings with healthy choices, when the only thing we really desire is a cold Popsicle or ice cream sandwich on a hot afternoon! Thankfully, the supermarkets are full of juice-laden frozen treats that claim to be at least marginally healthy!
Cheers to summer inspiration!
