My key to surviving summer is to stay somewhat busy with the kids. I schedule some fun things like pool days with my sister, t-ball, baseball, or play dates with friends. I also schedule free time at home that the kids can do their own thing! It makes for a good balance and allows me to still keep up with what I need to be doing around the house.
The only downside for being on the go is the neverending “I’m hungry” or “I’m thirsty” from the backseat of the car. It is dreadful, and it’s usually because I failed to plan ahead.
I’m getting smarter and now I keep some snacks handy in my bag that is always in the car so we don’t end up spending unnecessary money in the drive thru. Happy kids = happy mom!
I try to always have a couple bottles of water on hand in the car. There are days where our plans don’t go according to plan and it feels like we are spending more time in the car than not! In addition to the water bottles, I keep a few snacks on hand as well. For me, I like the belVita Breakfast Sandwiches Dark Chocolate Crème. They provide 4 hours of nutritious, steady energy and 15g of whole grain, making them a great start to my day! I eat them before we even leave the house, with my cup of coffee and some fruit, making it the perfect balanced breakfast. I still stash a couple in my bag, just in case I don’t have time to sit down at the breakfast table. Throw an apple or some grapes in a bag, coffee in my to go cup, and I’m still ready for the day.
For the kids, I pack Honey Maid Dippers in Honey. I also carry a small container of vanilla almond butter for the kids to dip them in. They are the perfect snack! With the belVita Breakfast Sandwiches and Honey Maid Dippers I have breakfast for me, treats for them. The “I’m hungry” mumblings from the car finally have an answer and we don’t have to interrupt our entire plan on account of hunger.
As you can see, my bag is now fully stocked for our busy summer days. We still have quite a few plans on our summer list!
