Mother Nature provides an amazing variety of foods for us to choose from. I was so excited to discover that between our refrigerator, garden and freezer, our Sweet Peas could eat all the colors of the rainbow - all fresh foods without food coloring :)
The next goal is to find as many vegetables as we have fruits in our food selection - we tend to stick to carrots, broccoli and lettuce that we grow...time to grow their palette instead of try to do better the next time we do this theme!
One of the beautiful things about the internet is making connections with other individuals who love supporting families. I had the pleasure of meeting Susan Moss through LinkedIn. I am so honored to bring you our virtual interview and to share her amazing music with our Sweet Pea students and readers through our blog and our newsletter. I hope you will be as touched by her music as I have been!
Tell us a little about your company.

in her early 40s came for hay fever relief, not mentioning that she been trying

As you approach your Sweet Pea's Birth-Day, this mantra encourages you to remember two things:
ONE: You have done everything right - you've read, you've eaten well, you've exercised, you have prepared. Let the distractions go and focus on the positive outcome that you have prepared for. Keep practicing your relaxation techniques and read over your options for labor positions so that when labor starts, you can tune into Mom's needs and labor together for your best birth given your particular set of circumstances.
Happy greetings to you! We are enjoying the spring weather in AZ - how about you?
We are enjoying the Nat Geo Kids Club so much that we have added listings for events in Glendale and Mesa to our calendar. We also feel it is important to expose our children to the visual and performing arts. In addition to the listings for the art museum (special times at no charge to families), the Mesa Arts Center is providing another FREE opportunity for families to enjoy a variety of music every Thursday through the month of March.
Happy Saturday to all! We are enjoying our lovely AZ sunshine...Puma is at dance and all the other kiddos are enjoying LEGO club with Coach Bruss as I sit here and listen to some of my favorite music and pull together this weekend's fun events! I think we will definitely have to go out and check out The Batmobile at the Chandler Classic Car Show this afternoon!!
