As a mom of 3 teens and with our youngest insisting that I quit calling her the baby (she's turning 12 this year, enough said!) I feel it safe to tell you that the secret to balance is really quite simple, because there is NO secret: balance is all a matter of perspective.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, while running in 6 different directions (sometimes, all in the same day) and having to plan meals around our collectively busy schedules -- not to mention, those late night, last-minute school projects, due yesterday -- without one (or all) of us experiencing the proverbial crash and burn is a challenge my family and I face, every day.
I am very excited about this partnership and look forward to connecting with parents and families who are looking to start having more family meals, get active together or simply share inspiration that will perhaps help to make life for families (like yours and mine) a little easier.
After all, we are ALL in this together and some of us parents need ALL the help we can get (ahem!) just sayin' :)
