Hardest Part of Growing Up

This is part 13 of 30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me.

We spend our lives constantly looking at the next milestone: double digits, teenager, driving, 18, 21, married, having kids, etc. Eventually you hit that point and just want to go back to when things were simple and easy with no tough decisions to be made or real work to be done.

Growing up is hard. My advice? Don’t rush it.

Yummy Cookies from ginnybakes

I received this product for free from the sponsor of the Moms Meet program, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agreed to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC or the manufacturer of the product.

When I think about gluten-free organic snacks, my nose kind of turns up a bit if you know what I mean. I think sweets like cookies and brownies should be yummy and luxurious! However, I’m one of those people that will try anything (at least) once.

I’m so glad I gave these a try!

ginnybakes is a family-owned company, whose passion is to create outrageously delicious and nutritious treats that everyone can enjoy. The founder, Ginny, is a holistic nutritionist, who believes that your body deserves only the finest ingredients, so she’s made sure that’s the only thing they put in each of their products. Members of their team work tirelessly to deliver a wide range of outrageously delicious cookies.

ginnybakes organic & gluten-free treats

We had to take my mom to an appointment the day our box of ginnybakes goodies arrived, so I grabbed a pack of chocolate chip love – minis and ran out the door. With kids, you know how important it can be to have a treat ready at all times.
