How many children do you have? I have two boys Taine age nine and Bryce age seven.
What is your favorite parenting tip? Slow down and spend time with yours kids. We want our boys to grow up knowing that we are always there for them.
What has surprised you most about parenting? I was most surprised at how much I enjoy being with my boys everyday. My boys have become my outdoor buddies, and I have loved watching them become independent on their bikes and motorbikes. It is so much fun to go out and play sports with my kids.
How do you get your kids to eat healthy food? Healthy foods have been a struggle, but we have found that pureeing vegetables into soups and sauces has been a perfect way to get everything into them at once, and they love the taste.
How do you get your family to exercise? Getting exercise into our family’s life has been natural. My husband and I love the outdoors, and luckily our boys are following in our footsteps with many sports.
What do you do to recharge your own batteries? I like to recharge my batteries by getting out of the city and having some quiet family time by either camping or sitting by the lake. I have loved watching my boys get super excited to pull out their fishing rods and spend the whole day sitting on the dock.
