Germaine and the kids love when I plan tailgate food for the Sunday games. While they may not agree on the team they want to win, they do agree the food is always delicious.

I'm not gonna lie...I'm not a die hard football fan. I'm just a wife who supports her football loving family by creating fun football inspired meals during football season.

I love creating fun new recipes for my family and sharing them with you on the blog. This week I tried out an easy sour cream and cheddar cheese dip recipe that will be a staple for us this football season.

What I love about it is the ease to make. You already know, I don't like complicated recipes, so trust that this one is super easy to make.

There are only four ingredients and it's done in under 20 minutes.

Should I Make My Teen Wear His Eyeglasses Even Though He Thinks They Aren't Cool?

“This post was sponsored by Think About Your Eyes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. All thoughts and opinions are completely my own.”
I am having the hardest time getting my sixteen year old to consistently wear his eyeglasses. He's at the age wear he's concerned about his looks and even though he picked his glasses, I usually have to tell him to wear them. 

If it were just a matter of fashion I wouldn't bug him, but as his mom, I know how important it is for him to see well. Now that he's driving it's even more important. 

Each year before school resumes, I take all of my children for eye exams, even my two who don't wear glasses. A child's inability to see, can affect their ability to learn, so eye care is something I take seriously. Since they may not catch small changes in their vision, it's my job to take them to a professional who can accurately detect the changes. 


80% of what children learn comes through their eyes.


One thing I know about vision impairments is that you can't wait for your children to tell you they are having a problem seeing. Most times, it's a gradual change in how clear things are that kids often don't even notice. 24% of parents wait for their child to say they're having problems seeing while 25% of school aged children have eye problems and don't know it. That's why eye exams should be a regular back to school routine.


Parents shouldn’t wait for children to say they aren’t seeing well –they don’t know what “normal” vision is!


We just had our eye exams and picked out some new eyewear. I let the kids pick my frames, while my son chose his. I'm not in love with mine, but I know being able to see is more important than fashion.

4 rules my teen and I use to conquer back to school shopping

http://www.sheknows.com/parenting/articles/1126644/teen-back-to-school-shoppingIf I had to give moms advice, it would be to involve your teens in things that concern them as much as possible. I delegate as much to my teens as they can handle especially when it comes to back to school shopping.

A few weeks ago, I challenged them to tackle their own back to school shopping list. I gave them a few specific rules and they did an amazing job. I'm sharing my 4 rules that helped my teens do their own back-to-school shopping on sheknows.com this week. Click on the image to read what rules I give my kids when planning for back-to-school.
