When she is not hard at work, UltimateMama is always on the go with her kids.  And she loves to treat them to nice restaurant dining experiences once in a while (usually for lunchtime) after one of their excursions to a museum, craft studio, performance, or extracurricular activity.  The bread basket that is often placed in the middle of the table is not only tempting to UltimateMama but also to two little stomachs seated on either side of her when dining.  In order to avoid stuffing faces and filling tummies with breads, UltimateMama usually brings Vermont Village Organic Applesauce with her so her kids can happily enjoy their “appetizer” before their meal arrives.  This way, the kids are not climbing the walls out of hunger or eating too many carbs before mealtime.  And they are getting some great nutrients while waiting for their main course to arrive!  Not to mention two little containers of applesauce easily fit in UltimateMama’s purse.

UltimateMama is an obsessive fan of the Olympic games – summer and winter.  The 2012 Olympic games in London have been a wonderful distraction from the summer grind for UltimateMama and a terrific motivating experience for her children who just so happened to visit London a month prior to the games.  UltimateMama has shown excerpts of the swimming and diving competitions to her kids these past few weeks and now they are not only perfecting their dives on the weekends but also their underwater dance moves.  I have to give our 2012 USA Olympic Swim Team major kudos for inspiring my girls with their delightful “Call Me Maybe” clip on YouTube! No wonder they won so many medals – work hard, play hard, and have fun doing both! Go USA! And get your kids swimming today – it is a life skill!
