Children are known for their reluctance to try new foods and experiment with the unknown. The term “picky eater” is a common complaint among parents in my private practice. Many times it is a case of a child wanting more control over what they choose to eat during a meal, a mere exercise of power at the table.
My child won’t eat.
Well, let me rephrase that. My child won’t eat anything other than Oatmeal, Nutella sandwiches, cereal, brownies, chicken nuggets, french fries, chips, candy, and cookies. So basically my child will only eat junk food.
Tonight we tried to feed the kid macaroni and cheese, and he wouldn’t even eat that. To hear his reaction, you might have thought we were trying to feed him live spiders dipped in hot sauce. He bawled loudly and held a single piece of pasta in his mouth for 20 minutes refusing to chew or swallow.
We are so not dog people. In fact, we’re so far from dog people that we often make jokes about how weird dog people are.
Perhaps its something about growing older, or maybe things were getting too routine, but something in our crazy brains inspired us to acquire this puppy.
We’d been considering getting a dog for a while now. It was this itch that kept building. It was like a festering boil growing on our back. It was just enough out of our reach so that we couldn’t scratch it, and then we finally managed to get a hold of it (the dog, that is, not a boil, we don’t have boils… at least I don’t)
Sprider-Man has always kept a place in my heart. So when I was given the opportunity to have my son test the MARVEL Spider-Man Adventures PLAYSKOOL HEROES – STUNTACULAR SPEED LOOP Set, I was eager to get to write a review.
You see, Spider-Man is my husband… well, when we were teenagers anyway.
Recently I received an Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometer to review and was pleasently surprised with just how simple and efficient it is. It’s so easy to use that even my toddler had it mastered in a matter of seconds and was going around the house attempting to get the temperature of everyone in sight.
In my opinion temporal artery scanning is the most efficient and therefore the best way to take the temperature of your child. In my experiences both as a nurse and a patient, temporal artery scanning caused the least discomfort and inconvenience for both the healthcare provider and the patient as well as providing and accurate temperature.
Unless you’re living under a rock off the grid somewhere, you’ve no doubt already heard about “The new iPad” which was announced on March 8th, 2012. And even if you are living off the grid somewhere, that probably means you’re some sort of hipster and then you probably have an Apple shrine somewhere in your […]
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jakks Pacific before, and they make some pretty neat kids toys. When I had the opportunity to review this $39.99 stand alone video game (Plug It In & Play Disney Pixar Cars 2 TV Game™), I was eager to test it out with my little boy. Although I honestly think the price is a little high for what it is, my little boy just about flipped out when he saw the packaging and has had so much fun “driving cars” since we plugged it in.
When Ty started play the game, and I questioned what he was doing, he informed me that I’d have to “Wait a second,” because he was “driving this car.”
