How To Win iPad Time

After two snow days and the weekend my little guy and I found ourselves with yet another day to ourselves this past Monday as his school was closed for President's Day.

He woke up early as all children seem to do on days when you have absolutely nowhere to be.

After a nice breakfast he saddled up to me and asked if we could have a "date day" together (cue heart melting action).

So, I asked him what he'd like to do together imagining a trip to the movies or Chuck E. Cheese or even a day out gallivanting in the snow looking for geocaches...when he looked at me and said "Maybe I could play my iPad all day."

Uhhh... how "un-together" is that?!

After a bit, I convinced him that we should leave the house for at least a "drive" and then we could stay here the rest of the day. He relented and told me we could drive by his school if I needed to get out. Whoopie!

As we approached his school someone had built a giant snow woman, which I pointed out. He looked over and asked me how I knew it was a woman and I explained that she was wearing a bikini, and he's 5 so he asked what that was and I explained.

He then responded in the most sincere way, you should wear a bikini because YOU have a BEAUTIFUL belly!

Take note young children, THAT is how you WIN iPad time.

Hidden Talent Unveiled

Can you basket weave underwater?

Or, drink an entire gallon of milk?

How about play a symphony on water filled glasses?

Or, do a backflip while reciting the periodic table?

Yeah, me either.

But here's what I can do!

Come on, tell me what you can do!


Lunch on the Run {GIVEAWAY}

 *This is a sponsored post.*

Mornings are an interesting time around these parts as I attempt to pack a lunch and snack for my son as well as lunch and occasionally dinner for me.

On a particularly hectic morning we might even add breakfasts-to-go to that mix.

We get into ruts as anyone might and I'm always on the look out for non-bread based snacks to shake up our meals on-the-go. Pretzels and crackers and sandwiches are great, but we both love fruit and it's great to have some pre-packaged options on hand.

The great folks at Del Monte asked us to try out their Fruit Burst Squeezers and NEW Mango Pineapple Fruit Cups and we are big fans. Our little guy has long been a fan of mangos and used to call them MINGOS!, so that's how you'll find us referring to them on most days.

In addition to them tasting great, I love that they are made right here in the USA and contain 1 1/2 servings of fruit and veggies and are an excellent source of vitamins A and C. In addition the Fruit Burst Squeezers contain no artifical flavors or high fructose corn syrup. What mom doesn't love that?

Next time you are in your local Walmart or placing an order online at Walmart.com, check them out.

Want to see what they look like? Check out my video.
