Mom, can I make an omelet when we get home?
The time is just around 3 O’clock Sunday afternoon. This kid loves eggs. Oh my goodness! To further persuade me, he goes on to say,

LMAO!! How on earth can I say no to that? Hahaha!
Here’s what’s left of his 3-egg omelet. That red stuff is Tabasco Sauce, which he’s been eating since he was around 6!
On the weekend, B’Dazzle participates in a rigorous football conditioning camp. I like the program because the coaches push him beyond his limits. Like me, he doesn’t always realize his full athletic potential.
The camp is an intense hour of various drills sprinting, running ladders, crawling, pushing sleds, wrapping, and more. I like it because there is no slacking, horse-play, or performing half-ass. Before the boys walk in the door, the bar is raised and they know exactly what type of performance is expected of them. Makes for a great work ethic.
In an hour’s time, the boys burn an enormous amount of calories! It is important to their growth and development that after practice, they fuel up and replace the calories burned. While my son is young with an active metabolism, I still stress, to him and to hubby, that he eats “good” food instead of filling up on empty, high fat, and sugared calories. Even though I cringe, an occasional slurpee isn’t going to kill him. I hope not! Lol! Okay so you know, I had to sneak a peek!! Read More
