Deplorable Lack of Disability Awareness at Paralympics: Guide Dog Left Behind

Gonna be on my soapbox for a minute. You would think, at an event created especially for the disabled, that organizers would have a pretty good handle on what people of different abilities need. But check out this story from David Wharton in the LA Times. (Read the whole story at that link. Excerpt below.) … Continue reading Deplorable Lack of Disability Awareness at Paralympics: Guide Dog Left Behind

5 Easy Tips for Making School Lunches More Fun

Plant-Based Lunch-Kabobs, 2 Ways
 

I’m not gonna lie you guys. I hate making school lunches. It is probably my least favorite part of the kids going back to school. They’re still too young to make their own, and they’re not a fan of the school hot lunches, so here we are. 

Despite my own general disdain for lunch making, I still want to make lunches fun for them. And while I’m admittedly haphazardly throwing whatever we have in their lunch boxes by year’s end, I do like to start out with a little effort. I’ll never be a fancy bento box parent, but hey, I’m sort of try, and that counts. Here are some ideas to start off the school year with lunches your little ones will love.

1. Create fun shapes.
My little ones are still young, but even if your kids are on the older side, a cookie cutter can be there friend. I bought several different shapes to use on sandwiches, cheese slices, and meats. I’m not sure what sort of witchcraft happens with shaped sandwiches, but 10 out of 10 times, my kids will eat the same kinds of sandwiches if they’re shapes that they won’t touch when they’re regular pieces of bread.

2. Kabob it.
Just like the star shaped sandwiches and cheese slices, if I give my daughter pieces of fruit on skewers rather than in a regular cup or bag, they’re devoured. And kabobs can be made from endless types of food. They’re actually kind of  fun to put together too..

3. Make food smile.
Making a simple face on a piece of food is like sprinkling magical edible glitter on it when it comes to my kids. Two raisins for eyes and a clementine orange slice mouth make a boring sandwich come to life. I also draw a happy face on a banana or orange with a marker and I’m telling you, it makes my kids so much more enthusiastic about eating their fruits and veggies.

4. Let the kids help.
I have found that when my kids help make their lunches, they’re more likely to actually eat them at school the next day. I let them help me decide what to put in their boxes, and they also love cutting the sandwich shapes with me.

5. Switch it up.

I know what my kids like, and I know what foods are easiest for my to prepare, which makes it easy to fall into a school lunch rut. I try to change things up everyday in a given week. This makes the lunches more exciting for the little ones, and also encourages them to try new things. 
Happy back to school season, fellow parents.

Fun Owl Toast for Kids

Owl Avocado Toast

I know I’ve shared this before, but we made these again the other day and my kids loved them so much that I had to share again. I really like making these with my little ones, and the bonus is that they’re good for them too!
Owl Avocado Toast
Owl Avocado Toast
Serves 2
INGREDIENTS
2 slices whole grain (or gluten free) bread
1 avocado, ripe
1 hardboiled egg
1-2 strawberries
1 baby carrot  
uncooked macaroni (optional*)
Toast bread. While bread is toasting, mash avocado. Slice hardboiled for the eyes and wings. Slice strawberries for ears. Slice a sliver of carrot for the beak. 
*Macaroni is just for decoration. Don’t eat uncooked macaroni unless you want a broken tooth. 
Owl Avocado Toast
My 5 year old, who is the pickiest eater and normally won’t touch hard boiled eggs, loves these. Sometimes you just have to make food fun for kids to try new things. (If only I had the energy to actually go that on the daily.)

Czy w SEO można mieć szybko super efekty?

Czy w SEO można mieć szybko super efekty?

Oczywiście, że można – jedyny problem to odpowiednio się do tego przygotować. Ale po kolei…

W SEO, jeśli chce się być dobrym, trzeba dużo testować – to chyba fakt oczywisty dla każdego seowca. Dlatego wpadliśmy na pomysł, żeby testować dużo więcej niż zawsze, i to jeszcze testować inaczej niż zwykle.

No więc testowaliśmy: całą drugą połowę 2020 roku i kilka miesięcy 2021 roku. Jasnym jest, że wiele testów nie wypaliło, kilka miało dziwne wyniki, ale najważniejsze jest to, że kilka testów udało się
w 100%.

Co ważniejsze powtarzanie tych czynności przynosi zawsze te same wyniki – nadzwyczaj dobre. Co z nich wynika? Jest

Na mityczny autorytet domeny wpływa bardzo dużo czynników. Jednak nie uda się tego zrobić bez prawidłowej budowy struktury strony. Odpowiedniej optymalizacji i strategii fraz kluczowych.

Our Family Vacation to Disney World and Clearwater

Clearwater Beach
It’s been a long time since I’ve shared a travel post here, both because we purposely halted all travel plans from March 2020 until a couple of months ago due to the pandemic, and because I share most of my personal adventures on my Instagram account these days. But a couple of weeks ago we took a family vacation to Florida and it was genuinely one of the best trips I’ve ever taken, so I wanted to share some of the pictures we took along the way. (I’ve share a couple of fun Reels/videos of the trip on my Instagram as well.)
Toy Story Land Woody
Walt Disney World Cinderella's Castle
We started off at Disney World, something my husband and I admittedly dreaded. We just didn’t think Disney would be our jam, but we knew how much it meant to our kids. Well, guess what? We were wrong. So wrong. We both loved our Disney experience almost as much at the kids did, and definitely plan to go back. (Side note: I’ll be sharing a post soon with tips for Disney first timers, like we were.) We stayed on site and visited 3 parks in 3 days. It was hot and exhausting and magical and so, so fun.

Cinderella's Royal Table Restaurant

For the second part of our trip, we went to Clearwater Beach, where we visited two years ago. It was admittedly more crowded this time, but we still absolutely loved it. Clearwater Beach is consistently named one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and, while very touristy, the town is cute and fun as well. We visited our beloved Clearwater Marine rescue aquarium, but spent most of the time in the ocean or pool, or just relaxing. It was a really nice way to decompress after Disney World.

It was a little weird to be traveling again. My husband has been back on tour with the band since April so he was used to it, but I definitely had low grade anxiety. We made what we hoped were responsible choices, and thankfully no one got sick. 

It’s fun to share snapshots of our lives here sometimes, and maybe I’ll do it more often. It reminds me of the early days of blogging (Bubby and Bean is in its 11th year!), when it was more like journaling. Sometimes I wish we could bring that back.

Simone Biles and Prioritizing Mental Health

Prioritizing Mental Health

I can’t stop thinking about Simone Biles and the incredible example she set by prioritizing her mental (and physical) health. I feel very inspired by her strength in doing what was best for herself (because guys, she doesn’t owe us anything), and also by her very publicly stating she withdrew because of her mental state as a result of excessive pressure. Explaining Simone’s choices to my daughter (seen here at the beach, aka both her and my happy place for decompressing and calming our minds) came so easily to me, because to her, it made perfect sense. I can see a shift in the normalization of prioritizing and openly discussing mental health that didn’t exist in the world I grew up in, and I am so grateful for that.

I want to contribute to this shift myself, and be more open here and on my social media channels about my own mental health. As someone who has struggled with anxiety disorder my entire adult life and recently, depression as well (I even got on daily medication a couple of months ago), I want to be transparent and be part of the conversation. If you are comfortable, I would also love to talk with those of you who struggle as well, so feel free to email me, comment, or DM me on Instagram.

Thank you Simone, for doing what was best for YOU, and for being a role model for my daughter and millions of others. You are the definition of greatness.
