Staying Ahead of the Game with Tyson

Life just seems to be constantly speeding up… don't you feel that way? I think even if you don't have kiddos, life can be rather hectic. Add four kiddos and a husband on top of that and life starts to rev up to the speed of light. I thought things were hectic when my girls were little and now that I have a teenager, a couple of tweens and a toddler (the triple T) our schedule has gone nuts.

Hales a.k.a. Lil'Whip is up before the crack of dawn at 4:30 am for her first class of the day at 6:00 am. She generally returns home anywhere between 5:00 and 8:00 pm after all of her after school activities. She is one busy girl. Who drives her all these places? Yep, you got it… me! Throw in some fun on the weekends and her time to sit down for a real home cooked meal is rather limited…

And that's just one of the kiddos… Take on the other three and life become a bit of a juggling act.

The three girls are in three different schools, High School, Middle School & Elementary and here in Nebraska we don't have buses for any of them, so I have to get them to and from all three schools everyday. The little guy and I have fun hanging out together everyday, but he can create some challenges of his own. Case in point, the peanut flurries… do you know how hard it is to vacuum up broken up pieces of packing peanuts? He finds that kind of fun almost everyday!

Then you have my crazy mess…

I hate to say it, but the house and family tend to suffer a bit when I'm working on the blog. Here is an old Instagram pic of my creative mess that I'm in a good portion of the time. Making all this beautiful can be a messy business.

Each night, I actually try really hard to cook a healthy home cooked meal for a family sit down dinner at the end of the day, but there are times when it just can't happen. That's why I try and keep some Tyson products on hand in the freezer for those nights when a sit down dinner just isn't in the cards. Right now we are loving the new Tyson mini bread bowls the Chicken Bacon Club bowl is made with 100% white chicken and is full of good protein to help everyone keep their energy up during our busy days.

What about you guys? From soccer practice to PTA meetings, feeding an active and busy family can be hard. Tyson® Mini Bread Bowls help you get a little goodness on the go.

    The thing that keeps us on the go is a 15 yr. boy that has to be everywhere a 7 yr.old thats wants to go everywhere and two babies that have a mass amount of medical appointments! It keeps us moving :)

    Our family of five seems to be running all the time. Every morning I take our twins and godson to kindergarten. Then during the week we have gymnastics or wrestling practice. My mom lives with us and I take Cate of her health needs. Plus my husband works from home. When the kids are not in school or activities we do lots of crafts, take care of our six chickens, and work in our garden together.

    Life! Living life, waking up each day with a deep breath of gratitude
    and a smile of thanks for all things big, small, easy and hard is what
    keeps us busy everyday!

    Between soccer, basebal, softball, gymnastics, and church awana’s, we stay in the road. If it weren’t for Tyson chicken nuggets, my 7 year old wouldn’t eat. He is a very picky eater and Tyson chicken nuggets are his favorite meal.

  5. Lisa says

    I only have one son, but between he and I we have something going almost every night of the week! Boy Scouts, sports practices year-round, Wednesday night church activities, PTO meetings, Sunday School prep, bible studies. And by the time I get home from work, he has been home from school for three hours and is READY TO EAT! We’re never tried the Tyson bread bowls, but that sounds like a great idea – gonna give them a try! Thanks for sharing!
