"In one fairly typical encounter, a father asked his eight-year-old son five times to please go take a bath or a shower. After the fifth plea went unheeded, the father picked the boy up and carried him into the bathroom. A few minutes later, the kid, still unwashed, wandered into another room to play a video game." - Elizabeth Kolbert, in Spoiled Rotten: Why do kids rule the roost?
Have fun with the baby. Enjoying the baby isn’t just the most important thing in baby sign language, it is the whole point of baby sign language. Baby Sign Language is above all a fun way to bond with your baby. Most babies love learning the new signs and the feeling of being understood that comes along with being able to communicate with their parents.
We are becoming more "Hippie" by the day it seems. Truly, it is not all my fault. Andy contributes too.
Now that the kids are almost on summer break it’s time to start planning those daily activities. My biggest predicament is trying to find activities that I don’t feel are completely mindless (gotta keep those synapses firing, right?). What better activity to do with them than a fun science experiment? Learn all about the crystallization process with geodes and test the power of nature by walking on eggshells. Your afternoons are guaranteed to be tons of fun and educational with these 25 At-Home Science Experiments… Dancing Oobleck

Well tonight I am helping the Bear Scouts with Achievement 11; BE READY. I had a small brain burp while I was enjoying my Easter break however, and I forgot to purchase the materials that I needed for the activity I wanted to do. I unfortunately do not have time today to make a quick run to the grocery store, so it will have to wait until next time. Last weekend while watching the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints televised conference I decided to replenish our 72 hour emergency food supply kits. (No doubt many of you have made these, my mom made one for me 5ish years ago during a homemaking meeting.)

<<Update 03/20/12 — Make sure you take some time to read through the comments on this post. When I first wrote this post back in January 2012, I thought 52 uses for coconut oil was amazing. Little did I know that my readers would leave double, and probably even triple that many new uses in the comments!>> Really?
Újabb vécépapír-gurigás ötlet megvalósításába kezdtem: valamikor még régen a net egyik távoli, sötét sarkában láttam kisautókat, amelyeket ebből az alapanyagból készített egy különösen kreatív felhasználó. Már akkor szöget ütött a fejembe a dolog, de mivel a Kisebbik akkoriban még játszás helyett előszeretettel fogyasztotta a papírgurigákat, elhalasztottam a megvalósítást, egészen mostanáig. Gurigák szokás szerint nagy számban álltak rendelkezésre, színes papírok, ragasztók és kartonok mindig vannak a háznál, az egyetlen problémaokozó (=hiányzó) hozzávaló a Milton-kapocs volt. (Tudjátok, ez az a kis izé, aminek fémfeje van, és utána két széthajtható "lába".)

We've always got a bottle in our freezer but we never thought that there was much use for it beyond our weekend Bloody Marys. But then, we received this list from a friend. At first we were startled.
No joke. We received this the other day in our mailbox and had to share. While our used dryer sheets have often, unexpectedly, freshened our garbage can, we thought that was the extent of their usefulness. Looks like we were wrong.
Cleanse your body, protect it from disease, and enhance your health system by detoxing with these supportive foods. BLOOD What does it do?
