Request From a Mom: Stop, Now, Please!
By Karen Showalter
As a mom of two little ones, I’m doing all I can to keep them happy and healthy. I try to cook fresh and healthy meals. I buy natural and organic products when I can. And I try to model good behavior. It’s definitely not easy. I like sweets (a lot).
I’m often too tired to argue over which snacks to purchase when we stop for gas or milk. And at the end of the day it’s often hard to imagine cooking at all, let alone preparing a full and healthy meal. But I try. We all try. Parents are magical and powerful because we seem to find energy even when we’re at our most exhausted.
