• Hung out with LEGO Santa for a bit this morning at #legolandatlanta at Phipps Plaza. This year I’m trying to be more intentional about getting the girls out to do Holiday activities even though mama tired. What activities do you do with your kids during the holidays.  Looking for ideas.
  • Cold & Flu season has hit our home! #VicksPartner After all the guests left from Thanksgiving, someone forgot to take their cold with them.  Poor Harper has been coughing like crazy and then Peyton started. Luckily I had the new @Vicks_US Children's Cough & Congestion medicine on deck.  Vicks Children's medicine provided fast relief and is free of artificial dyes and flavors, high fructose corn syrup and alcohol. Mr. was like " This stuff is good, she hasn't coughed all day". Stock up now because that cold train is never late!  Link in profile to learn more.  Use as directed and keep out of reach of children. #vickschildrens
  • I remember when I used to make holiday gift guides for everyone on your lists.  Now, I need y’all to tell me what to buy for gifts.  I haven’t purchased one gift yet. I’m struggling what to buy Peyton and Mr. Please leave ideas in the comments. Bonus points if it’s BOB. Don’t forget to order your @greentopgifts Clarence Claus paper and gifts! 📷 @kaynjames
  • Holiday table & dining room reveal all in one. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around these parts with my #DollarTree table. Details on my dining room coming soon. Link in profile. I’ve also teamed up with some amazing lifestyle & home bloggers of color for more holiday inspiration! @heytrinasmall
  • Do y’all remember when Peyton used to do outfit posts every week (for years)?! Harper looks like Peyton here. Or maybe it’s because this is Peyton’s old coat that I got from @byaracely 😆. Harper put this whole look together, i just to button her up.  This baby has style. Outfit details on the blog heytrina.com & link in profile.
  • Just when I thought I had my house together and could rest, we got another surprise issue.  While we take are of that issue here’s Harper’s updated big girl room.  She graduated from new toddler bed (that she never slept in) to a shinny new daybed. I wanted to maximize her play space and a daybed was the best option. There’s also a trundle underneath so it was perfect while we hosted guests during Thanksgiving. #toddlerroomdecor #bohodecor

Tips for Snacking on the Go with Mott’s

January 13, 2014

You never think about how important it is to have snacks readily available until you have a child.   Leaving the house with out snack is the main ingredient for a disastrous outing.  Ever been at the mall a little longer than expected right before lunch or dinner? Or, attend a birthday party where they only serve cake?  When this happens you end up feeding your child fast food options.  I would rather save that option for emergency (or lazy) situations. 

  • Make a list of what snacks your child likes to eat.  Don’t introduce a new snack while on the go.
  • Pick snacks children can eat by themselves.   Skip snacks that require utensils.
  • Find snacks that are packaged in convenient snack size portions.   Mott’s Snack & Go applesauce comes in small squeezable pouch.  If your child’s snack of choice doesn’t come in snack size, place snack size portions in resealable baggies.  
  • Pack a variety of snacks.  You never know what mood your child is in.  
  • Choose snacks are small enough to fit in your purse.  
  • Include at least one “break in case of emergency” snack.   You know…that snack your kid will do anything you say to get?  This snack may also be in the form of a candy.
  • No messy snacks!  Say no to snacks that can stain or spill. 

Mott’s Snack & Go Applesauce meets all my requirements.  They come in a variety of flavors that Peyton loves.  Her current favorite is strawberry.  Mott’s Snack & Go Applesauce comes in a convenient squeezable pouch that fits in my purse. 
Do you have any on the go snacking tips?

Mott’s®Snack & Go is the nutritious applesauce kids love in a squeezable pouch they can take with them wherever they go. Mott’s is also the only applesauce brand with Box Tops for Education®, helping to support kids’ schools. Visit Motts.comto learn more.

    I say invest in a slowcooker and tupperware. Can’t beat that combination! Warm food ready as soon as you get up in the morning and tupperware to carry delicious food around with you all day. Here check out one of my slow-cooker recipes for spicy-brownies: http://paindoesnthurt.com/paleo-spicy-brownies/
