Parenting Tips for a Disaster Gigi had a very busy day last week.
We wanted to share with you a few of her favorite tips to stay focused, organized and organized.
“I want you to be super organized.
So if you’re at the grocery store, you know what’s going to be there?”
“Make sure you have your receipts and all your receipts.
If you want to know how many items you have, you can find it on your smartphone.”
“When you have to go to the hospital, put a bag over your head and just go to your bag.
When you go to school, put your bags on your back, so it doesn’t matter if you need to get somewhere, you don’t need to worry about being in a hurry.”
Tips for a Healthy Family Gigi has been a big fan of having her own personal chef since she was a little girl.
Now, she has a chef who is super talented and very committed to helping her cook meals that are perfect for her family.
“There’s one meal that I absolutely love to have.
I like to make it for my daughter.
I make it on the weekends and then it’s on the weekdays.
It’s a super simple, healthy meal.
I have a huge bowl of noodles that I make, and I make this delicious soup that I really love.
The broth is very rich, so there’s no added sugar or anything like that.
It makes me feel so full.”
Mom’s Favorite Munchie Recipes “My favorite snack is Munchy.
It is a great way to bring out the family, and it’s not like a candy bar that you can get for a buck, it’s just a bowl of something that you don`t have to fill with sugar and stuff.
“It`s a super fun thing to make, it`s not too complicated, and you can make it the night before.”
Baking Recipes “I think that a lot of my favorite things to bake are chocolate chip cookies, cupcakes, anything chocolatey.”
“I really love baking cakes and I like baking things like that.”
