Hey Good Mom!

If you've ever felt judged by another Mom, this blog post I read today is a beautiful reminder that we need to extend grace to one another. Thanks for the insight, Megan Gahan.

hey good mom . . . .

you're a good mom if you say 'heck YES' to the epidural

you're a good mom if you go without



you're a good mom if cans of formula line your cupboards

you're a good mom if you're fussing with nursing covers and praying you don't flash anyone




you're a good mom if your babe wails at bedtime

you're a good mom if you rock your little one until they drift off



you're a good mom if you go organic

you're a good mom if you go kraft dinner



you're a good mom if you spank

you're a good mom if you prefer the time out



you're a good mom if you're working a corporate gig

you're a good mom if you're a domestic engineer




you're a good mom if you read every parenting book under the sun

you're a good mom if you only read people



you're a good mom if you've got your third load of laundry churning away as you read this

you're a good mom if you can't recall the color of your floors



is your little love happy?

healthy?

loved unconditionally?

then guess what?

you,  my friend, are a good mom

and, chances are, so are all those mommies around you

so let go of your judgements

your personal preferences

and give yourself

and those around you

a bit of grace today

Honoring Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today, we honor the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr and his legacy. We shared a couple of our favorite statements from him on the show today:

"I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear."

and

"We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. THERE IS SOME GOOD IN THE WORST OF US AND SOME EVIL IN THE BEST OF US. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies."

May we learn these lessons well.

Heard on air

If your kids are begging for a puppy, don't expect Facebook to help you out! "Two Girls and a Puppy" shows us the power of social media! The girls were told that they could get a puppy if their Facebook post got 1 million "likes." I'm sure Dad thought he was in the clear! What happened? It only took 7 hours to reach their goal! Way to go, Girls!

Got an old painting hanging around the house? It could be worth a fortune!

Tired of being set up on "blind dates by family members and friends?" There's an app for that!

If you're a fan of grilled cheese sandwiches but want a bit of variety, we've got some help for you.

Are only children doomed to be selfish? Some people are saying so.

Two girls know the Golden Rule and have seen it demonstrated recently by the return of their lost homemade rule book.

Healthy Superbowl snacks? Really?!

Healthier Super Bowl

 

Christine’s Guiltless Nachos, click here for the recipe.  www.christineavanti.com

 

Super Bowl Sunday is one of my favorite food events of the year.   However, most of the snacks football fans enjoy are loaded with unhealthy fats that come from mayonnaise, cream cheese and sour cream.  Sadly, these fats stick to our blood vessels and clog our arteries which can lead to heart disease.

 

Here are some simple food swaps that will reduce the “bad” fat (saturated fat) content of your favorite super bowl recipe:

 

Salsa instead of cream based dip.

Guacamole (good fat) instead of queso dip.

Sub sandwich instead of pizza.

Baked or Popped chips instead of fried chips. (Popchips are yummy.)

Fruit platter instead of a cheese platter.

Air-popped popcorn instead of nuts. (Nuts are a "good" fat but very high in calories.)

Use non fat plain Greek yogurt instead of mayo or sour cream for making dip.

 

Swaps for recipes that call for mayo, cream cheese, sour cream and cheddar cheese.

 

Light Mayonnaise 3.5 grams fat

Instead of

Mayonnaise 10 grams fat

Serving size: 1 Tbsp.

 

Light Cream Cheese 4.5 gm fat

Non-fat Cream Cheese 0 gm fat

Instead of

Cream Cheese  9 gm fat

Serving size: 1 ounce

 

Light Sour Cream 2.5 gm fat

Non-fat sour cream 0 gm fat

Instead of

Sour cream 5 gm fat

Serving size: 2 tablespoons

 

Light Cheddar Cheese 4.5 gm fat

Non-fat cheddar cheese 0 gm fat

Instead of

Cheddar Cheese 9 gm fat

Serving size: 1 ounce

Ketchup Packets

We just heard today that Heinz is redesigning the infamous ketchup packet after 40 years!  I have to admit that I am a little bummed because it means NO MORE ketchup packet fights!!!  Did you ever do that???

Do panda bears speak English?!

A panda bear that has spent her whole life at a zoo in America is moving to China and they are hiring a translator to help her communicate in her new home. Scott thinks that's crazy! Kelli believes it makes perfect sense. What do you think? Do pets understand language?
