I am writing this in the midst of a flu epidemic. Every Stroessner at our house has been gifted with an ugly dose of the stomach flu. Adair had it first. Then I got it. Like a game of tag, I passed it on to my husband. At 3 AM last night, Ingrid joined the club. Our pet fish, Truman, did not survive. (May he rest in peace.) We are one sorry bunch over here. To make things even more stressful, we are snowed in and we are supposed to move to our new house this Saturday. It kind of seems like the sky is falling. But soon, I know the fog will lift. The stench of vomit will no longer linger and I will soon be able to see and think clearly thanks to a decent night of sleep. (Maybe not tonight, but soon.) Flu season is my enemy. From runny noses and hoarse coughs to fevers and throw-up, I’ve had quite enough of it this year. Here are a few tips & tricks that have made the “getting through” just a tad easier to get through…
Please note that this is what works for me and my family. If you suspect your little one has come down with the flu, always consult your pediatrician.

Back in the day my bathroom used to be stocked to the gills with expensive bath-care products and make-up. Over the years, as I’ve made a slow movement towards natural living and local/organic eating – I’ve become a true convert.
I’ll be the first among many these days to sing the high praises of coconut oil for use in cooking, hair and body care, house-cleaning and baby-care.
Beyond that, I’ve found some tried and true recipes and ideas. For those of you with sensitive skin and a pocket book that squirms with the hefty price tag accompanying natural, organic, hypo-allergenic products, enjoy the round-up!

If you’re a seasoned sibling bathtime giver of the the baby and toddler variety, you’ll know it’s no easy feat. There are many logistics to consider.
Keeping things as tear-free as possible is top-priority, as well as keeping them from driving each-other batty. We’ve seen quite a few bath toys come and go around this house, so when the Finding Nemo Amazing Animals Nesting Bath Pals (from Fisher Price) arrived on our door-step (thanks DB!), I was grateful, but didn’t think much of it.
I suppose I really underestimated the power that comes with a little child identifying and being able to bond with some of their favourite movie characters in real-time. It’s easy to forget what it’s like to be a little one up in the land of adult-hood.
This bath toy set became a quick favourite for both of my little ones, and has been the one that I’ve witnessed them enjoy the most – to date. I love how something so simple – a set of bathtub toys; can be such a game-changer in the land of the littles…

Now that my baby boy is 2 years old, he’s able to do a lot more on his own. As a toddler, he is beginning to do things like washing his own hands, feeding himself, and trying to dress himself. Because toddlers play hard, it also means they now get dirtier and messier than they did as babies. This presents a wonderful opportunity to begin teaching toddlers about good hygiene. What better way to teach them good hygiene skills than with some of their favorite Disney characters?
