Enjoy More Water with Robinsons

I’ll admit that I’m not really a water drinker. In fact, I hate the taste of water. It’s been that way since I was a child, and I guess I wasn’t alone. A recent survey found that 42% of parents say their children find the taste of water boring. Despite not liking water myself, I understand the importance of staying hydrated, and I actively encourage my children to drink as much water as possible.

Siblings June 2016

I started this blog as a way to document my children’s lives. To record memories from their childhood, so we could look back in many years and remember what life was like. Recently, I feel like my blog has lost a little bit of that, that I’ve forgotten my reasons for starting in the first place. Growing up as an only child, I have no experience of having siblings. Watching my two children grow up together is a joy. I love watching their relationship develop, watching the way they play together and listening in on their conversations. There is a […]
