I used to love going shopping with my  Dad. It was always an experience. The most fun I had with him was when he was looking to buy a new truck. Car shopping was the best! He had the average Joe look about him so sales people always figure that he couldn’t afford what he was looking at. I didn’t understand why this entertained him, when I was a kid. As I got older, I began to see the humor in it. It was mostly about people judging him by how he looked.

I think the most fun I have ever had, while buying a new vehicle, was in 2002. I purchased an SUV off of Ebay. The dealer listed it very low thinking that there would be a bidding war and he would make a fortune. That didn’t happen. I remember sitting there, watching the minutes and seconds tick away. I just knew that someone was going to high bid at the last moment and win it out from under me. To my surprise, it didn’t happen! I picked up the SUV for a steal. It was located about 600 miles from where I live. When my Dad went to check it out, the guy actually tried to talk him out of buying it. We laughed about it for many years after.

Summer is all about family, friends, the sun and spending quality time with our loved ones. The more skills you develop, the more time you invest in your family and all of your relationships. First Things First (FTF) is an award winning not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening families.

So many parents work full time+ jobs these days. For many of them, finding quality with spend with the children can be difficult. I make every effort to spend time with my boys. I lost my Dad when I was 30 years old and I wish I was able to have more time with him. When I was a little girl, he was always working. He worked to provide for us and give us the things that he didn’t have when he was growing up. I think this is the way most parents are. I didn’t understand this when I was 10 but at 36 years old, I am grateful for all he did for us. I was definitely a Daddy’s Girl all the way! THe time a little girl spends with her Dad, is so important so make the most of all the time you can! It’s about the quality of time, not the quantity.

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Del Monte, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #DelMonteBTS  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Has anyone seen the summer? I am not sure where it went but I wasn’t quite done with it. For some reason, this summer seemed to just whiz on by. We didn’t get to do half of the things that we wanted to do it seems. I am happy to say that Spencer can now ride a bike without training wheels. I think that was the highlight of his summer. He picked in up in less than 10 minutes. I was so proud of him and so was his big brother.

The boys start school on August 27th. They are starting a new school this year so there was so much to do, yet to get done and unknowns. I guess all parents have the same fears about things like that. Will they like the kids? Will they like the teachers? Will they make new friends easily? What will the lunches be like?
