I want you to have the best summer you can with your family without being overwhelmed. Balancing work and spending time with the kids while schools out for summer can be tough. Below are some tips and suggestions to make this summer the best one yet without getting stressed out!

1. Regular Bonding Time

Over the summer, its hard to establish a schedule because your work changes, but your children’s’ doesn’t. If you can make a little bit of time every day for your kids, even if its just eating breakfast with them at the same time before work, they will love it. Children love a routine and the fact that they get to spend time with you everyday is great.

2. Unplug

Technology can be an amazing learning tool for our kids, but it can also hurt our natural sense of curiosity and wonder when learning. When banning television and the computer, over time kids get creative with their unplugged time and learn things they wouldn’t of before sitting in front of a screen. In our case we learn how to dance a tradition Peruvian dance called “Marinera”.

3. Learn

An easy daytime activity during the week or even the weekends can include the library or a museum. A local library is a great and cost effective trip while your little ones get loads of knowledge in return! Reading is a great skill for kids to have and it keeps their minds active while out of school. Museums are also a great place for kids to go in the summer. They allow kids to interact and be visual learners. The kids activity center at the American Indian Museum in Washington DC, always offers hands on activities for kids and they easily spend a couple hours exploring and traveling with a passport through different stations and they have to stamp its passport as they go through each station.

4. Plan activities

You don’t need to plan an enormous vacation to make the summer memorable. Things like picnics, camping in the backyard, movies, living room sleepovers, and even drawing with chalk in your driveway can be memories that your kids will remember forever.

Till next Monday;)

It was June 13th, 2009 and I had a fashion show that day, I had no clue I was already pregnant with Tyler, months pass by, I felt weird and I didn’t know what it was. A friend of mine told me I think you are pregnant, I thought NO, that can’t be.

So my husband and I went to have a nice dinner and drinks but we 1st stopped at the pharmacy for the wonderful pregnancy tests, so when we came back we did the fabulous test, which came positive. Few days later I went to my doctor and he said: Yes, indeed Evelyn you are almost 11 weeks pregnant. I was working as I used to without anything stopping me. Tyler was there with me all this time without me knowing it,  so he had a purpose, come to this world no matter what; 40 weeks later he was born on March 11th at 450p.  Only 8 hours into labor and Tyler came to this world.

Many times I tried to teach Tyler that there is a lot to see and do in this world. Whatever he wants in life he can have it. He just have to work hard to get want get wants. Nothing is for granted.

He comes to my studio many times and ask me how to bead a necklace, lately he is interested in learning how to use the plyers so we can open and close rings. All he wants the most is to continue spending time with me. (so for now I enjoy it)

He knows I have to travel a lot for work but he also understands that when mommy comes back we have a lot of quality time together.

I choose to be a mompreneur not a stay home mom and wife at home. (not my cup of tea). Everyone has the right to be happy doing what they love most.  What I do is what I love most. I wanted to continue growing as a profesional and as a parent. I never stop working. And I know me and my husband work very hard just for one purpose to provide the best to our kids.

Now with two kids there is a lot more expenses, a lot more activities to do, a lot more places to visit, more trips to do and evidently more work to do.

The word Mompreneur suits me perfect. I know many women like me, who have kids and continue pursuing their dreams. But I am pretty sure that for most of them the most important thing in the end is your own FAMILY:)

Enjoy every minute of it,

Sincerely

Evelyn Brooks
