Last week I had the honor of interviewing soccer star and mom of three, Mia Hamm about kids and fitness. As a mom of six kids, and someone who spends more time at the library than the gym (and it shows!), I am always concerned about ways to keep my kids active.
Moms, we are fighting a big fight in working to keep our kids active! kids today have more homework than ever, and when they come home to unwind, they often follow their parents’ example and unwind with a heavy dose of technology. (Guilty as charged). Add to this, the trend of parents being prosecuted for allowing their kids to play outside, and you see that things are much, much different from when we were growing up.
So sit back, and listen to some great tips from Mia Hamm! When you are done, take a moment to enter the easy giveaway! I have two LeapFrog Leap Band fitness trackers to giveaway, so two of my lucky readers will be winners!

In May our oldest graduated from high school, and a few weeks ago he drove off to college. I cried both days. A lot. But then, like the strong-willed German that I am, I bucked up and got over it. Because my kid going to college is not about me. I had my chance. I […] keep reading

With the kids heading back to school, and one fewer kid at the table (sniff), it is time to buckle back down with meal planning. Summer can be fun with lazy days and no bedtimes. We tend to not even start thinking about dinner until after I get home from work, and then work […] keep reading

Nobody told me: that I would be in more pain after the baby was born than I would be during labor. that feeding a newborn would be a full-time job. that I would have conversations about poop and never blush. that I could survive on two hours of interrupted sleep. that I would be […] keep reading

I’ve spent the better part of the last 15 years on parenting message boards, email groups and Facebook groups. When I started off on this mom gig, I was determined to be a pro. Whether or not I’ve succeeded at professional motherhood is best left un-judged, but suffice it to say, I’ve talked and typed […] keep reading
