Keeping Track of Your Child’s Medicine Doses~ Good Advice During the Winter Season

I love pretty much everything about Fall and Winter.  I think I can count on one hand the things I dislike about the cold months; heating bills, icy roads, and kids getting sick every time you turn around.  Honestly, with multiple kids it sometimes feels like someone in our home is sick constantly the whole season!  Don’t get me wrong, I feel blessed that they are small illnesses.  Colds, ear infections and sinus infections mostly.  But with our hectic life, and sometimes multiple children on medicine at the same time, it is easy to lose track of whether or not someone got their dose that morning/evening.  And then if you add 2 parents in there, what if one of us gives the medicine not realizing that the other one already gave it to them?

Here is the solution: Use a sharpie, or put a small label on the bottle of the medicine.  I tried the Sharpie, but with the red bottle, I didn’t feel like my oldish sharpie was dark enough. My son is taking his medicine for 10 days 2 times a day starting on the 12th.  I made 2 columns, one for am and one for pm and listed the dates down the side.  Now my husband and I can keep track of  when we gave him his medicine to make sure neither of us are double dosing him and that the child is actually getting all of the doses of the medicine so it can be most effective.

Cube Minecraft Party Invitations

These super simple invitations are great for your child’s Minecraft party!  Everything in the Minecraft world is squares or cubes, so why not make the party invitations the same way?

If you have a Minecraft fan, and haven’t seen this website, you need to go check it out!  There is so many blocks, characters and awesome stuff to check out.  I am thinking this is a great activity this summer to print them out and let the kids assemble them!

For these invitations you will need:

White card stock

printer

scissors

glue stick

First, pick your block from the above website.  Open it up in your computer program (I used my Silhouette program, but you could open it in Picasa, or word even.) and edit it by adding your party information to each section of the soon to be cube.  You may want to include the child’s name and age, address of the party, rsvp information, and any other pertinent information.

Once you have your cube with all of the details on it, you will want to print it and cut it out.  Be sure to cut around the white tabs, you will need those on there.

The greatest part of using my Silhouette program was that I was able to trace it, create it and then cut it with the machine instead of having to cut each one out with scissors.  It is really awesome!

Before you start gluing you want to fold all of your sides.  Fold all of the white tabs in and then fold where the sides of the blocks will be.

Now that you have it cut out you need to glue it.  Put glue stick on all of the white tabs and then begin assembling your block by folding and pressing the white tabs on the inside of the cube.

Now you just need to deliver your invitations!  If you need to mail these, you could mail them flat and then let the child assemble them when they get it.

We found an even better price on Prego sauce at Walgreens.

Now through 1/31, you can snag it for only $0.63 per jar.

I like to take advantage of sales on spaghetti sauce whenever I can.

I doctor mine up with spices & use it as a dipping sauce.
