The Being Dad Show is back. In this episode, Ben gives an update of what's going on with the show, then interviews Daniel Byrd, who is the Program Director of Kids on Bikes in Colorado Springs, Colorado. They discuss their current lives as a dad, including the levels of raising their voices and what normal is. Daniel is a father of two young twin boys and shares his stories about what it's like. 

ABOUT KIDS ON BIKES:

"Kids on Bikes mission is to inspire and empower all kids to lead healthy, active and happy lives through biking.

The freedom, joy, health and friendship that come from exploring your neighborhood by bike is one many of us cherish.   In addition there are tremendous health benefits from riding your bike everyday.  We want to make biking possible for kids from all walks of life, regardless of income.  We believe that by transforming communities, one neighborhood at a time, we can make an incredible impact in the lives of children.  Our top three priorities that will allow all children to own and ride a bike are to provide access to rideable bikes, to empower children in bike safety and to encourage kids and families to ride more frequently through organized events.

Make a decision to help. We are offering a simple solution to bring the joy, health, freedom and confidence that comes from riding a bike.  For $300 (or $25 per month), you can sponsor a child to go through the Let’s Pedal earn-a-bike program where they participate in 10 weeks of hands on bike riding and at the end earn a new bike, helmet, lock and pump."

Kelli's Homemade Magnesium Oil Directions:

  1. Boil ½ cup distilled water. It is important to use distilled to extend the shelf life of the mixture. Put the Magnesium Chloride Flakes in the glass bowl or measuring cup and the pour the boiling water over it.
  2. Stir well until completely dissolved. Let cool completely and store in the spray bottle. Can be stored at room temperature for at least six months.
  3. Spray about 10 sprays on legs/arms/core (10 total) after showering in morning and before bed at night. It will tingle on the skin (and avoid putting on broken skin) for about 2 weeks of use, then the tingling should reduce.
