family is…choosing your battles

project 52: week forty four. englexas lifestyle blog

**catching up from the last few weeks MONTH! (yikes!). These posts were written at the time and do not reflect current events…pretty much you know the ending of the story already ;) **

One thing that I’ve learned in my 5 years of parenting is that you have to choose your battles. Sometimes it just feels like I’m constantly saying no, so I find it important sometimes to bend a little as a parent. I often cringe at the thought of Halloween, well it’s more the candy. I have a real problem with high fructose corn syrup as described in this blog post. If it were up to me my kids would never eat any kind of candy but I have to find a balance between my desire for my children to eat healthy and them being able to celebrate and have fun. I don’t want to make them feel like healthy eating is a constant burden where they don’t get to be like everyone else. So I bend a little and they trick or treat and are able to eat a few of their earnings. Finding the balance seems to be a recurring theme in my life and most of the time I find myself swinging the pendulum from one extreme to the other. I think that balance is something that is on an extreme decline these days and it’s important to me that my kids have a desire to live a balanced life.
