Howard B. Wigglebottom on Trust


      If you have young children you may have hear of Howard Wigglebottom before. What you may not know is he has a new adventure to share with you. Recently I was given the chance to review his new book, Howard B. Wigglebottom on Trust. Howard B Wigglebottom is a bunny that has to know how every little thing worked. In this book he sees that a friend Buzz  is having a hard time lately. He sees he friend doing things that he sees are wrong and dangerous. When Buzz almost takes a ride from a stranger Howard finds him self speaking up and asking WHY! After talking he finds out that Buzz just doesn't know when it is ok to say no :( he wants everyone to like him and is afraid that if he says no they will no longer be his friend. They decide it is best to ask the adults when is a good time to say no. Howard B. Wigglebottom and Buzz find out what is best and with excitement go about playing and happy that they are making the right choices.
       I really enjoyed sharing this book with my children. While it is geared towards younger children I think it is a life lesson that all children need to learn. From time to time all children are going to struggle with the choices they are faced with. Who to yes yes to and who to tell no, it is our job to help them know when to make that choice, to not only make themselves happy and safe but also to try to not hurt others. Reading with a child helps a child see from the outside how to make the right choice, it isn't just mom saying don't do this. Howard B. Wigglebottom books have been a great teaching tool for our family and I am glad to have been able to add this book to our collection.

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.
