I have been struggling with my husband being deployed. There is no doubt about that. I don't attempt to hide it. Right now I'm supposed to be in DC at a Yellow Ribbon event, but about twelve things went wrong with the whole process.

I have been working with a six year old this summer on developing healthy eating habits. We start every morning with 10-40 minutes of yoga and stretching, then we made breakfast (either a smoothie, yogurt, or pancakes). After we do "boring work stuff"/tutoring we start to get ready for lunch. I got a dollar plate from Five Below and drew the MyPlate on top of it. It's an updated version of the food pyramid many of us grew up with.
