June is National Safety Month + TimerCaps


Be informed of important facts so YOU can save a young life and keep loved ones safe.  Approximately 60,000 young children are brought into emergency rooms each year because they have had access to and took medications that were left within their reach. Don’t let this happen to you or someone you love!

Summer break is here.  Kids are home much more and families are likely to travel.  Whether you’re packing for a family vacation, going to a relatives or friends home, checking into a hotel, or hosting a house guest, it is important to safely put away medications.   Especially during June, National Safety Month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is reminding parents and caregivers to practice safe medication storage no matter where they go by keeping all medications “up and away” out of sight and reach of young children.  Starting June 1st, the CDC is raising awareness with their Up and Away Campaign to promote medication safety.  Knowledge is power and it’s never too early to start.  Feel free to download this medication safety coloring book and pass it along to children so they can begin to understand: Medicine is Not Candy.

Here are some travel points that should be considered.  Whenever separated from luggage, it is important to protect medication from being stolen.  It is extremely common that highly addictive medications like opioids, examples of common opioids would include Hydrocodone, Codeine, OxyContin, and Methadone are stolen every day and should be better protected when traveling.  Opportunities for medication access are endless.  Keeping your medication in your carry-on is a great start, but what about protecting them when you get to your destination?  Are medications placed in the safe or are they assessable to hotel staff, relatives, friends and curious children and teenagers?  If someone did take a pill or two, would it be detected?  

Take the extra precaution to detect and deter others from the temptation of helping themselves to your medication. Along with the above precautions, think about adding a TimerCap on medication bottles.  It will give automatic piece of mind knowing if someone has opened the medication container.  TimerCaps resets automatically and count up.  With this feature, it is easy to see when the bottle was last opened.  Not only will you know if someone else helped themselves, you won’t have to remember when YOU took your last dose.  It’s a twofer.

For knowledge and safety go online or to your local CVS or Rite Aid pharmacy to pick up a three pack of TimerCaps today. These also make a great gift of safety to families traveling with children, young kids or teenagers.

New Summer's Eve Simply Products




A few weeks ago, I was at Target, my husband was watching the kids, and I had time to really LOOK. I went down the feminine care aisle, because it's not an aisle I am usually able to browse with the kids asking me what each product is.  

I noticed a new line from Summer's Eve. Summer's Eve has been around for so long, I remember my Grandma talking about it when I was a kid! So I know that I can trust their products.

Timex Time Machines Learning App and Watches for Kids!





This past year in our home school co-op one of the moms came to me who was teaching math and asked me if my son could tell time on a watch. I said yeah I think he can, sort of and she handed me a pack of flash cards and said "work with him!". I was more than slightly embarrassed. He is 10. He should be able to tell time. I know he can say what time it is, by looking at his phone, its not like if its 12:30 he says "twelve three oh" he knows how to say it, but as far as analog reading of time was concerned he didn't really get it, and from what it seemed, most of the other kids in his class did.

When we got home that day I was on a mission to teach him to tell time on a watch, so when I googled...I found something great. Timex Time Machines.


Timex, a global leader in timekeeping for over 160 years, launches Timex Time Machines Mobile App developed with Scholastic the global children's publishing, education and media company. Made just for kids in grades 1–3, Timex's Time Machines mobile app give educators and parents the tools they need to make time teaching fun, easy, and hands-on. Timex Time Machines watches are durable, easy-to-read and come in an assortment of colorful, fun designs kids will adore.
Developed with Scholastic, the Timex Time Machines Mobile App empowers kids to have fun through learning by seamlessly blending digital free-play with a variety of interactive lessons tailored for kids ages 5 through 9.
Choose between Learning Mode and Game Mode to learn the basics of time telling:
  • Learning mode – learn to tell time with a tutorial that features general concepts such as clockwise, counter-clockwise, function of clock hands, telling time, A.M./P.M., and a simple game analog and digital matching game.
  • Game Mode LEVEL 1: Time Stopper - The clock is spinning and the player is given a time. The player must tap the clock at the specific point when its hands are at the indicated digital time in order to stop it.
  • Game Mode LEVEL 2: Counting Time - Players see a clock with a certain amount of time shaded in (for example, a quarter hour). They must tap minute buttons to equal the shaded amount without going over.
  • Game Mode LEVEL 3: Rocket Time - Time, in the form of clock faces, is falling from the top of the screen toward the player's Time Machine. The player must tap the clock that matches the written time shown at the bottom of their screen.

So how does it work? You download the app, play the games, and use the Timex Time Machines watch to help you learn. What I love about the watch, is that the hands on some of the watches are labeled "hour" and "minute" so there is no confusion. I have found this to be REALLY helpful with my son when it comes to telling time. He is excited for school to start in the fall so he can go back and show his math teacher what he has learned!
The mobile app is available to both iOS and Android users and is available, free of charge and ad and commercial free, for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Florida's Natural Releases New All-Natural Lemonades Just in Time for Summer




It's summertime! What does that mean for us? Lazy days, pool time, beach time, late night family game parties, backyard bbq picnics, and lots and lots of lemonade!

My kids love flavor in their lemonade (I love the taste of it straight up, soooo good especially in the summer!) so I was really excited to hear about the new flavors from Florida's Natural.

Just in time for hotter days, Florida's Natural® Brand is introducing a line of all-new, all-natural, not-from-concentrate lemonades, including 
  • Lemonade Iced Tea
  • Lemonade with Strawberry 
  • Lemonade with Pomegranate

The new lemonades, along with Florida's Natural traditional lemonade, are made with natural ingredients like real cane sugar and juices grown and sourced in the United States. The lemonades offer an iconic, refreshing taste, are never concentrated and have no artificial ingredients or preservatives.


I have always been a fan of the sweet tea/lemonade mix, and this one is really good, it tastes more like tea than some others do, which is great! If I am drinking a tea/lemonade I want to taste the tea! 

The Strawberry is by far the kids favorite, they even told their friends about it. 

My husband and I enjoyed the Pomegranate. It has a crisp lemon flavor with a hint of the pomegranate. 

Florida's Natural lemonades are available in 59-ounce carafes at a suggested retail price of $2.99. The lemonades will be available at a wide variety of grocery stores across the country this summer!

Firework Oreos From Nabisco



When I first saw the bag in the store I thought to myself..."wait, WHAT?" Firework Oreos? How?....Then, I noticed it said with popping candy, and I was even more intrigued! I knew these would be super fun for the kids to try. 

The Oreo Wondervault has opened again, and just in time for the summer season. Oreo, milk's favorite cookie, has captured the wonder of Fireworks in a cookie! Supremely dunkable, this Oreo variety sandwiches rich creme with popping candy between the tempting taste of two chocolate cookies. The resealable pack with easy-pull tab keeps cookies fresh and is perfect for snacking, sharing, or traveling. Oreo Fireworks are only available for a limited time.

The kids and I really enjoyed this flavor. We definitely felt the popping candy, and it gave the oreos a slightly different taste, which was really good. These are going to be a hit this 4th of July!

Be sure to get them while they last!

After Bite for Summer Big Bites!




Living in Florida, we get bit a lot. Not just by mosquitoes, but noseeums, ants, sand fleas...if it bites, we probably have it here. I spend half of my evening time itching from the array of things that bit me that day. It's the price you pay for living in beautiful south Florida!

I can handle the itchy pain of bug bites, but I hate when the kids are hurting from it. My oldest will itch himself raw, and my youngest already has eczema, so he is already itchy and it kills me to have to watch him scratching again.

Recently, we had the chance to try out After Bite, After Bite is a medicine you put on the bite, and it makes the itch stop, instantly!

After Bite® Outdoor is a powerful treatment that provides immediate relief from insect bites and stings. Extra strength gel contains baking soda and tea tree oil to soothe the skin and stop the itch and pain. Keep After Bite® at home, in your car, in your tackle box and camper. Don't let insect bites and stings ruin your outdoor fun!


After Bite Kids® is a non-stinging cream that provides soothing relief from the pain, itching and swelling of insect bites and stings. After Bite Kids® contains baking soda, aloe vera and tea tree oil to soothe and moisturize the skin. Now you can treat even the most over-scratched bug bites without fear of painful stinging. A trusted family favorite because it works!


I am so happy with the way both of the products worked, we had instant relief from the bites, and my kids didn't have to scratch or be in pain. We will definitely be keeping this on hand from now on!
