Hi! I’m Betty. Thank you for visiting Bacon & Kids.
At Bacon & Kids blog, Facebook and Twitter pages, I will share tips, recipes, funny stories and discuss ways to simplify & organize your home, spark your creativity, have more fun as a family, deal with challenges faced in the workplace, raise happy & healthy kids and be a supportive & loving spouse… ALL while keeping your sanity.
As a business owner (of Hayden Consulting-a Practice Management & Marketing Company for Dentists), wife to an amazing husband for over 20 years, mother of two incredible children ages 11 & 9, and superwoman want- to-be, I’ve learned that it’s not possible to achieve a perfect balance between work & kids, nor do I want to. Instead, while successfully assisting my husband in bringing home the bacon we strive to set priorities and make smart choices for what matters most to us, our kids and our relationship with our Creator. They say: “If mama ain’t happy…ain’t nobody happy.” Whether you work full or part time, are a single parent or stay at home mom, we hope that by joining our community you’ll find inspiration and encouragement to have a truly happy life that you and your family deserve.
Words To Live By:
“Children will not remember you for the material things you provided but for the feeling that you cherished them.” ~ Ralph Evans
“We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.” ~Stacia Tauscher
” Train up a boy according to the way for him; even when he grows old he will not turn aside from it.” ~Proverbs 22:6
P.S. Did I mention, I’m the third oldest of a very large family? There’s 10 of us, 6 girls and 4 boys. Our mother is without a doubt a very amazing woman. It is my aim to follow in her footsteps… NO!, not to have 10 children but to follow the excellent example she set for her children as a wife, mother & friend. Plus, my kids really love their Grandma Penny so being like her will only score me some brownie points with them.
