Unattended Halloween Candy Bowl Sign

Its that day that either us parents hate or love. Halloween!  What matters is that kids love it and we get to hopefully spend quality time with our kids scouring the neighborhood for candy.  This year I am lucky because my husband will actually be home from work in time to go out Trick-or-Treating with us, so I am looking forward to that. We will all go out for a bit and then I’ll come back to hand out candy. The “junky candy” will go out, and when I get back I have full size candy bars (thanks to awesome coupons and a fortuitous sale at Shaw’s) to dole out.  But while we are out…

Our neighborhood has become a Trick-or-Treating destination of sorts because we are in a newer subdivision in a rural town which homes are normally spread out. So we get a lot of foot traffic and I feel guilty just heading out of the house without leaving candy out.  But my fear is that some greedy little bugger will dump the entire bowl into their bag and skedaddle. Its happened before and I’m sure it will probably happen again, but this year I crafted a sign to put near the bowl, in hopes of calling out the good side of the little goblins and ghouls and hoping that they can respect my candy honor system.  Fingers crossed!

Anyways, in the spirit of sharing, here’s the file of the sign I created in case you too leave a bowl out.

And a little bit of coupon humor for day as well:

Gerber Be Our Baby Photo Search

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Gerber Baby. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

Having a baby is hard enough as it is with making tons of adjustments to fit a baby and their needs in your life.  Now you have to figure out the best way to take care of this little bundle of joy, including giving your baby the right nutrition.  MyGerber is a free program that helps parents figure out this maze of early childhood nutrition by providing tailored content, personalized features and interactive tools that help give your child the right nutrition right from the start.   You can sign up for your own MyGerber account from Gerber.com. When my own little guy was a baby, I remember always questioning if I was feeding him the right amounts, the right kinds of foods at the right stages.  It was very confusing, so I really appreciate that there is this one source of information available to parents. I trust the information Gerber provides because they have been a mainstay in providing nutrition for little ones for many generations.

Also when I think of Gerber, I think of the adorable Gerber baby.  Perhaps you have or know of a super cute baby that would make a great Gerber baby.  Now through November 12th you can enter the Gerber “Be Our Baby” Photo Search.  The Grand Prize winner will receive $50,000, a one year supply of Gerber baby food and a chance for their child to star in a future advertisement for Gerber.  There will also be six other winners in separate Milestone categories: Birth+, Supported Sitter, Sitter, Crawler, Toddler and Toddler 2+.  You can enter by signing up for a MyGerber account and submitting your entry along with a photograph here: Gerber.com/Photosearch  The child must be under 48 months old and the photo must be recently taken within the last 30 days.  Once entries are submitted, voting for the Milestones categories will begin on November 17th and end on December 14th.  The Grand Prize winner will be judged by a panel in January from all the photographs submitted.

You don’t have to be a pro to capture the perfect baby picture.  I recommend that you have your baby in a setting that they are comfortable with and are well-rested and fed.  The best pictures are when you get down to eye-level with your subject, so give that a try. It often helps to have someone right behind you when taking pictures of babies, because that person can get them to smile while you focus on getting the perfect shot.

 

LISTERINE Heroic Habits

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”

I’ve found that the best way to make permanent healthy changes into your lifestyle is to make it a part of a routine. Its been a few weeks since we started our new oral health routine with LISTERINE products and so far, it has been a reasonably good success. My son is the type of kid who is leery of new things, so with him, it had to be a slow transition into this new routine.

IMG_3902

We first started having him use the LISTERINE Smart Rinse each morning before school. We make a game out of it, making funny faces in the mirror as he swishes the rinse around in his mouth. In the evening before bedtime he has also used LISTERINE floss , which is something his dentist recommended because children often get small cavities (that turn into BIG cavities) when they don’t regularly floss in between their teeth. The LISTERINE floss is easy for him to use himself with a little bit of direction from us. We actually floss together, making it a floss “party” of sorts. And since he a boy, he enjoys gross things, so we compare the nastiness that LISTERINE floss gets out from between our teeth. Anything to make it fun for him so he will enjoy it and allowing it to become a healthy habit. LISTERINE ULTRACLEAN floss is shred resistant and glides easily between even the tightest of spaces between teeth. Its also very gentle on the gums, which is important when using it on kids. The patented MICRO-GROOVES removes twice as much plaque than another leading brand. I’ve also got into the habit of sticking the LISTERINE POCKETPAKS into my purse to keep my breath fresh and clean feeling.

IMG_4184

In addition to our family using LISTERINE products to have Heroic Habits, we have also been more mindful of what we are eating. Having meals and snacks that have more vegetables was something I have been wanting to incorporate for a while. Sneaking veggies into meals has been easier than I thought. My food processor has been my best friend lately to whip up fresh salsa and to puree veggies to put into spaghetti sauce. Instead of the normal bedtime snack of some crackers, my dentist suggested we give my son a cheese stick as it is better for his teeth and won’t leave a sticky carbohydrate residue like crackers would. Its the small things you don’t think of, but they are equally important to be a Healthy Habit Hero! If you are looking for ways to be a Healthy Habit Hero for your family, check out LISTERINE’s YouTube channel.
