I was so embarrassed

One that sticks out in my mind was when she was about 3 years old. I took her to get photos with Santa Claus, but I wanted to wait until we got there to put her Santa shirt on her — I didn’t want it to get dirty. Well, head back, screaming, and she didn’t even get to see Santa. This was about the shirt! I didn’t know what to do so I went to the car with her until she calmed down. It was the biggest tantrum I have ever witnessed. I was so embarrassed.

She kicked me out

In my French class, I learned that “Je ne sais pas” means “I don’t know.” Every time the teacher asked me a question, I’d say, “Hmm. Je ne sais pas.” I would be really obnoxious, and my friends thought it was really funny. The teacher however, didn’t. She kicked me out. Not just for that day, but for the rest of the year.

Cleaning supplies

Times have changed! You have to show up with crazy things that make you wonder, “Does the school not supply these?” Sanitizing wipes. Why do the parents have to buy the sanitizing wipes? Another thing — cups. Paper cups! Paper towels is on the supply list. I think it’s crazy that we have cleaning supplies as back-to-school supplies.

It gave me a chance

I think having Maddie at such a young age wasn’t something that I planned, but it did happen and it was something that I took full responsibility for. It made me grow up. I feel like it gave me a chance to figure out my next steps as a woman. I don’t think I would have made the same choices if I didn’t have someone else that I was being strong for.

Sneaking some of that good stuff into smoothies

My favorite health food hack is sneaking some of that good stuff into smoothies. Flax seed, wheat germ, kale… you can mask it with some of the stronger-flavored fruits, like strawberry and banana.
