Dusting Off Teacher Britches

Yawn, stretch... good morning. I am currently struggling to wake up from an overly restful night. I turned in early last evening due to extreme sleep deprivation...

Tuesday night, my friend Joanne came over for dinner, and she brought the most delicious cheesecake. I devoured an entire piece, and unfortunately, the sugar rush lasted through 3 am. (Joanne, do not let this deter you from bringing more cheesecake next time!)

Anyway, this setback on top of my already sleep-deprived life was enough to make me ask my mommy to come over this morning. She does so on a regular basis, because she's the best mom in the world and she believes in me and my new business. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that she adores her grandchildren.

Ok, everybody, yesterday, in spite of my sleepy brain, I had an idea for SuperNoots workshops. I have been trying so hard to come up with the perfect 'recipe' for this thing, and by golly, I think I've figured it out!

Instead of doing a parent-only workshop, I'm going to ask parents to bring their kids, then teach parents fun ways to get their kids to eat healthy by modeling it myself. Today I will put together an info packet and work on songs, activities, etc. A nice break from the relentless pursuit of customers!

For those of you who don't know, I taught fifth grade in my pre-kids, pre-entrepreneur life... now I will get to dust off those teacher britches!

It all sounds like a great idea now, but I'm wondering if after the first workshop, after the kids have revolted and hurled carrots at my head, that this idea will seem less attractive than the parent-only workshop. I guess we'll find out!!

YAY! So excited you started a blog! Great idea on getting out there in front of parents and kids!! You could definitely add in a cooking component at some point (fruit salad with kids helping to cut up the fruit - like some of the simple recipes from Molly Katzen's cookbooks for kids - Honest Pretzels or Pretend Soup) if people want to get some fun ideas for how to "rack up the noots" for their supernoots system.

You go GIRL!!
