A Couple That Plays Together Stays Together

November 16, 2016

My fiancé, Juan, and I have been together for five long years.  We were set up as mixed doubles partners in a local tournament in Baton Rouge and our relationship blossomed from there.  We were part of a huge tennis community, where we would play everyday, and end the day drinking beers and eating burgers with all of our friends.  We were living the life.  Then, the real world hit us like a ton of bricks.  We got pregnant, and our world was turned upside down. 

We have a beautiful daughter, whom we both adore, but raising a child is stressful, and we didn’t have the time to play tennis as much.  We both still played, but one played while the other stayed home to watch the baby.  Soon, we were drifting apart; living separate lives, but under one roof.  Then, I got a job offer in Houston. Two weeks later I moved with the baby, leaving Juan behind for a couple of months before he could join us.

Missy Franklin; Someone to Look Up To

July 16, 2016

She is as dedicated to her family, faith and friends as she is to her sport – a true role model for not only children, but adults as well.  We at SafeSplash consider working with children a true honor. We strive to give not only the gift of a life skill through teaching swim lessons, but to also surround our schools with people who are dedicated to doing good and those who will be someone to look up to.

Household Management

June 29, 2016

They don’t teach you how to manage your household in home economics (remember those home economics classes in middle school and high school?).  There are no college courses in how to manage the kids, a spouse, household errands, a job and every other thing that the world throws at you.   Even “super-moms” can get overwhelmed.   Here are a few tips that I have found to help keep the house and family organized and on track.
