Camp Mamitiki Means Mami and Me

I told you a couple of weeks ago that this summer, I’d be keeping the frog princess home for Camp Mamitiki. I’ve had a few people ask what this is and it’s simple: it’s Mami and Me time. With my work and school schedule, the frog princess will be headed to school most days this summer but I wanted to do something special in spite of that.

So, I’ve shifted my work schedule so that I can hold Camp Mamitiki Fridays through Mondays. I hope to get out of the house and hit some parks, beaches, museums and perhaps a petting zoo. I’m SO looking forward to it.

One of the things that I need to be on point with at the house, whether it’s during the school year or during Camp Mamitiki? Snackage. This kid knows her snacks and has a deep appreciation for them. I in turn, have a deep appreciation for Dole Squish’ems.

Why, you ask? I always make sure I am packed up and ready to go with her favorite snacks. I will say that I’m lucky because she enjoys healthy foods. But having healthy food on the go is a God-send. I get to throw the packs of Squish’ems in my bag and hand them over when she requests it, no spoons, no forks, no mess.

In turn, she gets a full serving of all-natural fruit, made with fresh apples from the USA: Apple, Apple Mixed Berry, and Apple Strawberry. And I get to feel good about what she eats and not stress out too much when I’m planning our outings around the city. It’s a win-win, I say.

I’m SO looking forward to these days of exploration and summer fun. I feel blessed to be able to shuffle my schedule around to make this happen for us. Stay tuned for images of Camp Mamitiki: Mami & Me 2013! So tell me, how to you carve out Mami & Me time?

    Love this idea. Not to mention I have been a lover of Dole since I was knee high to a grass hopper. Can’t wait to follow your Camp Mamitiki adventures this summer. Hope you take a field trip to the west coast of Florida during your summer camp!

  2. Ummmm can I enroll in Camp Mamitiki? Hehe! I love the idea and it’s so great you have the flexibility at work!! I asked my boss if i could leave 1.5 hours early on Fridays during the summer and she shut me down…so I’ve gotta get more creative with how I can get out of the office more and spend more time with lil mama during the summer! Packing healthy yummy snacks is always the struggle I feel like I’m always running late or tired of the same old snacks we eat so I’m always buying something on the go and aint nobody got time for that! I’ve had some of Dole’s other snacks, which I liked – we’ll try these out. She used to like the squishy applesauce but she likes one thing one day and hates it the next, so we’ll see!
