Boyhood Magic

Last night, my 10 year old son and his teammates experienced the magic of boyhood at its best. They won our local "World Series" for their age group. The best part? Every single player got on base. Every single player contributed. And, when that 3rd strike crossed the plate securing their victory? Magic. I am so grateful I got to be there to witness such joy and pride on the faces of 10 year old boys. To my son, who had a season which included 2 over-the-fence-home-runs, and dozens of zinger ground balls and RBIs, a great season of pitching and playing first base like a confident young man- I am so proud of you. I am even more proud of the times you hustled back after a strike out, or got right back in the game when things didn't go as planned- those are the times that shape the man you starting to become. To my husband who is the best coach I've ever seen, thanks for making those kids feel like kings and pushing them to reach their potential. Will is such a lucky

Tide Stain Booster Field Day!

A few months ago, I was contacted by the folks over at Tide about trying their new Tide Stain Boosters product and sharing my results with friends both online and in my everyday life. I am already a big fan of Tide, so I jumped at the chance to be involved. We thought it would be fun to do a local event- a Mom and Kids Field Day. It was so much fun. We ate messy snacks like cupcakes with frosting. And potato wedges and ketchup {Yes, that is sushi in the background. Do I know how to throw a party or what?} And we played some games And learned about Tide Stain Release and its satin-fighting power! {BTW- I was THRILLED with the results I had on grass stains, ketchup, BBQ sauce and soy sauce, check out my video here. } A great time was had by all! Wanna try it out for yourself? You can enter to win some pretty cool prizes!
