The Best Kids' Meal for Toddlers

Children naturally want the sweetest, saltiest food. It is a technique of survival. Even breast milk is sweeter than cow's milk. (so I have heard, not interested in tasting it for myself) Parents want their kids to eat healthy. We don't want our youngsters have heart problems and type 2 diabetes before they get into high school. (this does not describe those with problems not caused by diet of course!) For parents on the go finding the right meal is more difficult. The fatter and unhealthy food is just easier and cheaper. I was happy to find an exception at Chick-fil-A!

Chick-fil-A offers grilled chicken nuggets and offers them as part of their kids meal. I was able to get a kid's meal with grilled nuggets, apple sauce, and apple juice. A better choice for the drink would be milk, but I still can't get my 14 month old to drink cow's milk. Chick-fil-A also offers a fruit cup and you can have an ice cream to go with the meal instead of a book. Grilled nuggets are easier for my toddler to eat than the regular nuggets and the applesauce is my son's favorite- Buddy Fruits Blended Fruit to Go Applesauce. We always stock up on Buddy Fruits Fruit to Go so I was happy that Chick-fil-A offers it.

When you go into the Chick-fil-A, they have a high chair already set up with a mat and wet wipe to clean your child's hands. They have bendy straws that make it easier to drink. After they eat there is the little play land in the back for activities for both older and younger children.

Red Plum is offering Chick-fil-A coupons for a free kid's meal with the purchase of an adult meal. So now is a good time to try out the new healthier kids meal. It was a hit with my 14 month old (who still won't walk! No pressure, I promise!) and I know it will be a hit with your kids!!

I know I write a lot about Chick-fil-A that it must seem like I work for them. I currently have no affiliation with Chick-fil-A. They are just that good!

Overprotective Mom's Guide to Pop Music this Week

I have 2 teens and so I try to keep up with what is going on in music. I want to know what my kids are listening to. I also need to be aware of what songs are playing on the radio while my kids are in the van. I listened to the Top Ten pop songs on the Billboard chart and wrote down my impressions of the songs.

My son asked me one afternoon, "Mom, why is Ariana Grande walking side to side?' I usually don't listen to the words and focus on the beat and melody so I was surprised that he caught what the lyrics were. The song he is referring to is "Side to Side" by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I've heard that song around 200 times over the last couple of months. I just figured she was dancing with some guy and they were swaying side to side like you do at church dances. Well, I found out what it really means, prompted by my son's question. She's had sex with a guy all day and all night so she's so sore she walks side to side. (Vomit) Now I ch…

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made.

It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of wast…

Writer's Block

I usually have great ideas to write about especially if I am not under any pressure. Writer's block is horrible. I've had it at times, especially when I am busy or distracted. It's rare that it happens to me. 
What if I finally published a novel? It became popular and fans wanted a sequel. My anxiety would kick in like a huge block of ice, blocking my flow. What if I disappoint my fans? What if I can't repeat my previous success? Doubt will eventually lead to writer's block. Years go by and I still haven't published anything. Everyday I open up my computer and stare at a blank screen. I distract myself by going to Reddit or Twitter and discuss things like feminism in Star Wars and the worst sunburn I've ever had. 
One day I decide that I need to take my writing seriously. I put on some headphones and play white noise to try to clear my head while walking through a city park. The static masks the sounds of life and I am able to sit on a bench and clear my mi…
