Conquer food cravings
Further on the mindless grazing list is how to conquer food cravings. Here are some really great suggestions I found for keeping you from obsessing over food by replacing it with an activity. Read on for more.

Kate Gosselin repacks kids’ uneaten sandwiches
On the food topic is one of school lunches. Isn’t it frustrating when your kid comes home with the lunch you made for them that morning UNEATEN? Kate Gosselin deals with her kids’ school-time pickiness by packing the same sandwich in her kids’ lunches – sometimes up to 4 days in a row! Her ex-husband, Jon, disagrees with this method. Do you?

Coffee with Dad
Despite the caffeine issues for kids, I started drinking coffee at age 13. But it became a point of connection with my dad at a time when we had little to connect on. Read more about it in my blog.

Fun events
Don’t miss out on some events that are happening this weekend. Here is just some of what you can find in our Events Calendar:
April 29th – May 1st – Worth WeeCycling
