Soothe Those Back To School Owies With Me4Kidz


    As part of our back to school event I would love to introduce a product that I recently had a chance to review. Me4Kidz Cool It Buddy, a soft reusable cold pack, that can help to soothe all those back to school owies for your children.
        Let's all face it I am not alone in having children that seem to be falling more then walking at times. So with three children I can bet that at least once a day there will be some type of first aid care needed. That is where the Me4Kidz Cool It Buddy came in. Recently we have had many opportunities to try this product out and I have found many things that I really like about it. First thing I noticed it the texture, I know this sounds weird but if your think about your typical cooling pack what is it made of?? All the ones in this house have either a hard plastic outside or a pliable plastic outside. It is a constant struggle between to cold and having that plastic stick to your already painful owie, or it not being cold enough because you have had to wrap it in something. With a soft cloth outside we didn't have to deal with either of those, the right temperature without the hassle. I also really liked the size of the Cool It Buddy, measuring roughly 4 inches square it was able to cover any injury we have come across while having it.
So of course as soon as we got it the Cool It Buddy went straight into the freezer, because as I said it would surely be quickly needed. Of course within the day my son manage to hurt himself coming out of the rv(I really should buy some of the instant cooling buddies to keep in there) so into the house to grab our little buddy.
I bet he was happy we got the cute kitty print ;)
His sister usually needs it more.
That tumble is going to leave a good mark
       As you can see despite the size of the forming bruise the pack was more then large enough to cover the entire area. It really did help ease some of the pain by reducing the amount of swelling he experienced. We have also used it for my daughter who was having a fever which was causing a headache. I am happy to report both are doing much better now and our Me4Kidz Cool It Buddy is waiting in the freezer for the next time we need it. With school just around the corner my guess is that will be sooner then later.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
