Thank you CAPRI SUN for sponsoring this post! You can find CAPRI SUN’s four new All Natural Ingredient and No Sugar Added* drinks at most grocery retailers nationwide, including local grocery stores, mass merchandisers and club stores.
During the work week, it’s hard to find time for my husband to be with the kids. When he’s not traveling, he’s gone for forty hours or longer and sometimes works on Saturdays, too. While I’m able to work remotely from home, my husband works at the office and has strict hours that require him to be away from the boys. Like many working parents, the couple of hours before bedtime are so precious for bonding time. The mornings are chaotic with getting ready for the day, so we try to make the most of the quality time after my husband gets home from work.
Every day, the boys excitedly greet him as soon as they hear the garage door open. “Daddy!!!!” “Umma, daddy’s home, daddy’s home!!” “Yay!!!!”
While the baby is taking his last cat nap, I get dinner ready and the boys play with their dad. From talking about the school day to playing super heroes, my husband loves winding down from the busy work/school day by just being with them. The boys love to play make-believe and wrestling matches are almost a daily occurrence in our home. CAPRI SUN has a variety of refreshing drinks that the boys and my husband love to drink during their play time. I love that CAPRI SUN has four varieties made with All Natural ingredients, with no added sugar* and no high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. And the best part is that they taste great and our boys love them!
Most of our days blur together because there’s always something going on. But, that magical hour before dinner time seems to stand still at times. I love hearing the loud laughter and looking over to catch the boys adoringly staring at (or strong-arming) their dad. He is truly their number one superhero. The way their eyes sparkle in awe over everything he does for them is something that I hope to carry in my memory bank, long after they grow older. While time is seemingly our worst enemy, the everyday moments it brings us is something that simply takes my breath away.
