Teach your toddler / child to take a pill.

It's tried and true. I have learned the hard way, but you don't have to. The amazing jet-puffed marshmallow cream! It's just that easy. Get a small spoon and scoop up a small amount of marshmallow cream and drop the pill into the cream. You don't even have to hide the pill. You don't have to crush the pill. Then offer the cream to the child.
The cream is so sticky, smooth and slippery that it holds on to the pill and slides down your child's throat with ease and they like the taste.
Some of my kids have to take pills each day and I use this easy and yummy trick to make my mornings run more smoothly. This only works if the pill can be taken with food. I am not a doctor but I am a mom and this worked for my kids. Some pills can be broken but some can Not, some pill can be taken with food and some can Not. I have tried the pill cup and that didn't work for us. I have tried drinking fast, holding the nose, apple sauce, i even tried to teach then by using tictax and m&m candy, and every other trick in the book. I have been through the tears, and so has my child. I hope this post helps so that my readers children can skip the drama. My little guy is two years old and it works for him as we'll as my five year old and my ten year old. Good luck.

review for Nectresse no calorie sweetener

NECTRESSE™ Natural No Calorie Sweetener

I was given a free sample of Nectresse to try by smiley360.  I wanted to write a review on the product because I liked it so well.  It's from the makers of Splenda and they are a company that I know and trust.  I honestly like the taste and the texture of Nectresse.  It is so very similar to sugar but with out all the calories.  Who couldnt use that. 
Nectresse(TM) Natural No Calorie Sweetener

In the search to create a great tasting natural sweetener, the Maker of SPLENDA® Sweeteners found inspiration in the monk fruit, which has been cultivated in remote mountain regions for hundreds of years. Turns out, the extract of this little green melon is perfect for sweetening foods and beverages because it's 150 times sweeter than sugar without all the calories. A little goes a long way. The extract is then blended with other natural sweeteners to create NECTRESSE™ Sweetener. The result isn't just another sweetener, but one that is 100% natural with zero calories per serving and the rich,sweet taste of sugar. You’re going to love the way it tastes!

Did You Know?
  • NECTRESSE™ Sweetener has the rich taste of sugar, but without all the calories, making it ideal for anyone who wants to reduce the calories from sugar in their diet.
  • Monk fruit is hand-picked in remote mountain regions and has been cultivated for hundreds of years.
  • Each pack of NECTRESSE™ Sweetener provides all the sweetness of two teaspoons of sugar without all of the calories.
  • NECTRESSE™ Sweetener does not include any gluten containing ingredients.

    Inch bug label in classroom id for drink cup

    I just wanted to show my readers what I use ID my young kids drink cups at school. I won this set of two labels from a blog that I like to read called Cummings Life. She is one of my followers too. Any how..... I entered and won. I love using them I'm my kids drink because I'm afraid that the drinks will get mixed up and or the names will rub off at school. So to help my kids name stick out a Pinch more I used a marker. They are not expensive at all only around 6.00 and totally worth it. I even put them in the dishwasher . What more could I ask for?

    Welcome new baby kittens from a wild queen mother cat

    In the spring of 2012 I notice a pretty cat walking around the neighborhood . A calico beauty with long hair and green eyes. She was friendly enough and I remember saying what a good pet she would make if she was cleaned up. We started to give her treats and pet her when she would come around until finally a friend noticed that Sassy was pregnant. June of the year she delivered three kittens in a crate that we had made up for her on our porch. We named them all and cared for them as best as we could but in the end only one survived. When the queen went missing one day about two months after giving birth we took the last of the family of 4 into our home and made her our pet. Her name is Duchess.  She is growing and getting more healthy every day.  The Vet said she will grow into a nice big adult cat some day. :)  Welcome to the Family.

    Duchess had one brother and one sister that passed away from malnutrition.  It turns out that mother had round worm and gave it to kittens.  They also had flea bite anemia.  They looked good to an untrained eye but I learned that the furry hair was counseling the health problems. 

    Duchess has another vet visit in three weeks and I'm not sure what they want to do to her but I can tell you that they are helping to make her a happy healthy kitten.  I think she needs more new kitten shots but I'm not sure.  The first time we took her to emergency vet ER they gave her 4 RX and she was less then one pound.  The second time was 8 days later and they treated her for fleas and worms  and gave her kitten shots.  We are now working some dry food into her wet food.  She is the best kitty.  She sits on my shoulder and purrs so sweet.  She likes the dog but loves the kids.  The girls carry her like a baby doll and rub her tummy.  She lets us play with her paws and kiss her face.  Its getting time to clip her nails but Ill talk to the Vet about that.  I wonder if the dog groomer would do it.  lol
