Razor Electric Techno Scooter

 Neighborhood dreams coming true. This fall three families moved in and for the first time my kids are able to walk out the front door and play with friends! I realize how lucky we are and I’m so glad we’ve been blessed!  Yesterday the kids were jump roping, playing basketball, scootering, and hover boarding. 

Thanks @razorworldwide and @tryazon for providing us with this Razor Electric Tekno Scooter! All the kids loved it! You kick off a few times and then it will zip around by itself! It was a thrill for the kids as they tried it. But there is one kid who appreciates it more than the others, this kid, who can’t ride a bike. Now he can keep up with all the other kids on his electric razor scooter! As a mom I am so happy to see the freedom this has given my son. To see his excitement of finally being able to control a moving object and to be able to be included in adventures! It’s priceless! #razorblockparty #tryazon

Lakanto Bake Party

When I recieved my lakanto products in the mail I had grand plans of having everyone over for a baking party, but then of course I would catch Corona Virus! Instead of cookies and friends I was home in bed recovering. Tryazon and Lakanto were so kind to let me host an online party until I was feeling better.

Sick in bed I created an event and hosted a watch partywhere everyone could view lakanto products

The next week I was feeling better so much better and ready to hand out the samples I promised!

The kids and I spent the day baking and delivering these chocolate cookies with suntella whip. They were gluten free, sugar free, and low carb and surprisingly turned out to be delicious.

We were nervous to try something new, and as we went we would sample the ingredients and weren't sure how they would turn out.

The final result was a hit and most of our friends and families were surprised!

It was so nice to spend the rest of the day dropping them off to family and friends. We hadn't been able to see anyone for two weeks while we were ill. We let them sample our cookies and Lakanto also sent a full size sample of Classic Sweetner to share in these cute bags.

It was fun to bake, eat, and share. #tryazon #sweetresponsibly #discoveryourchi

UPSIDE DRAWN - Fun new twist on Pictionary!

We had our first social distancing party this week. We got together in our backyard. 

Spaced 6 feet apart and played the new telestrations game UPSIDE DRAWN. 

It’s where one partner is holding the marker and the other partner is moving the whiteboard around trying to draw a picture for marker partner to guess. 

It was fun to try to figure out with our partners. It was so fun to laugh with real people and not just YouTube people. Thank you @tryazon and @theopgames for providing us with this fun night! 


Crayola Valentine Party

for providing materials for this Valentine Crafting Party!

First we set up a supply table with Crayola paper, paint, canvases, markers, crayons, and glitter glue!
I added some paper hearts, heart stickers, google eyes, and a few crafting materials from Dollar Tree!

Then we set the kids loose, with no instructions, the paint and glitter glue were by far the favorites!

They made so many different Valentines, we had a hard time getting them all home with them.

Parents were AMAZED at how CREATIVE their kids were, but honestly we all have creativity if we give our children and ourselves a creative space with no restrictions! The kids were inspiring today!

Tinkering Labs

Thank you Tryazon for sending us these Tinkering Labs Kits!

We were able to invite 9 children to test out these kits at our Tinkering Party

We split the kids into two groups and gave them the kits wrapped up to make it more special.

Everyone opened them and got straight to work building a robot that could draw a curved line.

The Adults went to the other room to play a game, while the kids worked. Half way through our game we were surprised to find out the kids had finished, we put our game on hold to admire their impressive work!

I thought this was great for the kids! The kit has objectives instead of instructions. The kids are able to be creative and problem solve to build robots and meet these objectives. While there can be moments of frustration in the beginning, at the end the kids feel such accomplishment, and as parents we felt so proud.

The kids 2nd grade to 7th grade were the most interested in this product
It was a great experience! Thank you Tinkering Labs

How to treat Lice and NOT FREAK OUT!

Hey y'all it is LICE season
We got lice last winter, and this summer I helped a family get rid of a prolonged lice infestation they’ve had in their house for years. So I am starting to feel like an EXPERT!
  1. Stay calm, it is not life threatening, they don’t carry disease, they are just annoying, no one is immune to getting them, no matter how clean you are, it’s totally normal and it is No big deal! So fight the urge to freak out!
  2. Check or treat everyones hair for lice
  3. Use coconut oil for treatments with lice combs, it works just as well, it is cheap, it doesn’t stink, it doesn’t have weird chemicals. 
  4. Everything the person wears or touches with their head needs to a) be put in the dryer on high for at least 30 minutes (you decide if it needs to be washed first) b)set outside to freeze 3) don’t use items for 3 days or at least don’t let anyones hair come into contact with these items. Items you might need to think about is clothes, hats, coats, towels, head bands, backpacks, bedding, cloth couches or chairs, cloth toys, kid costumes, headphones. 
            So I switch bedding every day, when they come home from school coats and backpacks either stay outside on our back porch                  
            or go straight into our dryer, if we ride in a car with a cloth seat we put a new towel in every time we sit there. We make a rule 
            no sitting on clothe chairs or clothe couches or laying on carpet until the lice are gone. I also vacuum the floor in the rooms 
            they are active in daily until it has been resolved. We also stick all our hair bands and combs in the freezer in a ziplock or in 
            dryer or microwave before we use them again, we don’t reuse towels while we have lice, we use a new one every time

       5. We put all the girls hair up so that it isn’t hanging and touching things, and we tell them not to touch heads when they hug for  

       6. We treat every 3 days for 15 days if the last 10 days there were no lice or nits we stop, if anything was found we go another 12 
           days. This is excessive so if you prefer to do it different nits can hatch every 10 days so you could treat once a week, you just 
           want to remember that after a clean pull where you don’t get any lice, nits could still hatch within 10 days so you will want to 
           keep doing treatments until you have had 2 clean pulls 10 day apart or more. 

           We try to make treatment time pleasant and a time to bond. We try to make sure the person with lice doesn’t feel shame or 
           have trauma from having lice. We want to send the message this is no big deal, we can handle this.

       7. We blow dry our hair, the theory is the heat may kill the nits, not sure if this is proven to be true but thats what we do.

       8. Be careful about what your hair and head touches. I make a signal with my kids so I can easily remind them to be cautious, 
           without having to give the whole speech every time, after a few days these behaviors begin to come natural to them and these         
           behaviors will also help them  not get lice from other people in the future. Again try to make the learning experience positive 
           and not traumatizing. 

Good Luck! Have Fun!
