i heart crafty things

I saw one of our cute families today for a 5-year old visit and commented on how ready he was for Kindergarten. His mom told me that she does a lot of educational crafts with them, and then blogs about them so we can all share the wealth. She's got some great ideas. She often pairs a craft with a book which makes it even more fun.

This is one of my favorites.  Happy Crafting!

Tylenol Recall

The makers of Tylenol are announcing a voluntary recall of Grape Infants' Tylenol. The medication itself is fine, but some parents have had problems with the newly redesigned bottles, which include a protective cover and a syringe.  If you have this medication (and have had problems with it) you can find out how to get a refund here.

There's still time!

Typically by this time of year flu season is in full swing and starting to wind down. But this year we are just getting February! Crazy. This likely means that flu season will hit later and last longer. Which means that there is still time to get your flu shot. It is especially important for children under one year. Babies above 6 months can get vaccinated, and need a booster shot one month after the initial dose. In our crazy lives this booster shot is easily forgotten, but it is really important.

We're still doing vaccinations for parents, so the whole family can join in on the fun. You don't even need an appointment. Just walk on in and we'll get you all protected.

Here's to healthy kids and a happy flu-free spring.
