I am officially a soccer mom. There is nothing cuter than a bunch of three-year olds playing “small fry soccer” (except for said three-year olds dressing up like princesses). I have the minivan… and I now have the little athlete.
Tonight was the first official game of my soccer mom career. My sister and I have our kids on the same team, and as we sat there FREEZING to death, we couldn’t help but reminisce about all the games our mom sat through – rain, sleet, sun and wind. She was super mom and now so are we. Haha – we wish!
I do try to be supermom, at least where nutrition is concerned, so I obviously have a hard time allowing my three children to drink the sugar, “natural flavorings”, and artificial colors in Gatorade (and other so-called “healthy” sports drinks.) I am sorry, but can someone please explain to me how yellow #6 helps anyone do anything??
THANKFULLY, my sweet friend, Lindsay Bentley, came up with an alternative… her All Natural Sports Drink. We tried it tonight and it was amazing! When I saw that she was using my favorite magnesium supplement I knew this was going to be a huge win for Team Mom! (I’ve taken Calm for quite a while. It has been a big help with the muscle aches and pain that come with my Hashimoto Thyroiditis.)
Although we were freezing to death tonight, that didn’t stop us from drinking Lindsay’s ice-cold, All Natural Sports Drink. My beautiful two-year old couldn’t get enough either!.
Simply live. Simply Smiles.
