I Admit It: My Bladder Leaks!

So this is the deal. I sometimes pee my pants.

Yup. I'm a grownup and I sometimes pee my pants.

I said it. Twice. Three times if you include that image.

I know I'm not alone.

When I was pregnant with my now almost 5 year-old daughter, a coworker told me I should do special exercises to build up my muscles down below in hopes of avoiding accidents when I laughed and sneezed. I thought she was crazy... until I started having accidents.

Back then, I blamed my accidents on my pregnancy. But now, I'm five years out and it still sometimes happens. You know what I'm talking about, right? Those muscles are never the same. You laugh, you sneeze, you cough, you change your underwear. In fact, I change my underwear due to bladder leakage way more than my preschooler does... my family thinks it's crazy... and I sometimes agree.

Veggie Fries ~ Now at Stop & Shop and Other Local Retailers!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Veggie Fries. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All opinions and reviews are my own.

A working mom and dad combined with a picky-eating preschooler means dinner times around here can get a little mundane. We tend to eat the same meals weekly without much change. My daughter has her favorites and she usually sticks to those - regardless of what else I've chosen to prepare. Meals for her typically include chicken tenders, french fries, pizza, fresh fruit, cereal, grilled cheese, or peanut butter. I try to provide those favorite foods in the healthiest ways possible - I prefer to use high quality brands, fresh ingredients, and go homemade when possible. Sadly, you don't see veggies on that list, do you? That's because my picky eater is not a huge fan of veggies. She likes corn-on-the-cob and corn-from-the-can and that's about it... unless you count the french fries made from potatoes?

Despite the pickiness of eating habits in our home, I prefer to add some variety whenever I can. That's one of the reasons why I was so excited to be asked to try a new "french fries" option - and the fact that this new option provided those vegetables that we've been so desperately lacking was the icing on the cake!
