Infant Constipation

Tuesday, April 29, 2008 Kam has been really cranky and we think that in between the ear infection that we think she may be getting, she may also be a tad constipated. I was reading up on some home things that we can try. We gave her 1/2 tsp of Milk of Magnesia and so […]

Refreshing Rebates

Tuesday, April 29, 2008 I have a few friends that have already gotten their IRS stimulus rebates already. What are you going to use yours for?

Post-it Bandit

Thursday, April 24, 2008 I read today in a parenting magazine some fun things to do with your toddler at home. I had to laugh at the idea of giving him a pad of post it notes, a pen and letting him go around the house and write on the post its and put them […]
