Figuring out what to feed your family every single day, three times a day, plus snacks can be stressful.  When I don’t meal plan properly I usually end up at someones drive through and stuffing my face with french fries.

Growing Up Without a Dad

I grew up without a dad or father figure.  My dad is still alive but he has been absent most of my life.  Just in the last couple of years, I’ve made an effort to pursue more of a relationship with him.  I can count on one hand how many times I’ve seen him when I was younger.  Half of those times I didn’t even know he was my dad.   It’s still difficult to form a relationship because I don’t know this man.  I listened to God and he told me to keep trying.  I’ve never celebrated a Father’s Day until my husband came along because I didn’t have one to celebrate.  Thank God for blessing my girls with such and amazing dad.  Total opposite of what I had growing up.

Sharing is Caring, Give a Box of Cheerios

This post is sponsored by Cheerios.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Growing up, having a box of cereal in the cabinet was a must.  My mom worked a lot so my go to meal was always cereal.  Breakfast, lunch or dinner, If I was hungry I would make me a bowl of Cheerios, with or without milk.  I also remember waking up on Saturday mornings and making myself a big bowl of cereal and watching cartoons.  I probably remember it mainly because it was my only chance at watching cartoons for the week (Yes, I’m that old). Even though my girls can watch cartoons and videos on demand, I love when Peyton take the initiative to shares her Cheerios with her baby sister.  With the help of Cheerios my girls can share a special moment with family near and far and so can you.  Keep reading for details.
