As a health-consious mom, I’m pretty strict about the amount of candy they eat, but also don’t like to deprive them. At home they get one treat per day. When we’re out at a birthday party or a friend’s house, I don’t want them to feel like they’re missing out, so I’m more lenient.

That’s because it wasn’t only an amazingly gorgeous handbag – wait ’till you see what’s inside!

But even I can’t foresee everything; There’s always that impromptu picnic, the unexpected concert in the park, or just a situation where we need to find a place to sit and end up sitting on our jackets, if we have them (that’s the best-case scenario), or on the cold, hard concrete if there’s no other choice.
