GIVEAWAY: NEW from American Academy of Pediatrics,The Big Book of Symptoms: A-Z Guide To Your Child’s Health

I read a pile of books and magazines concerning pregnancy, child birth, and newborns. I even kept one of the books under my pillow. I had morning sickness all day, all the time and somehow that one book was my remedy for feeling queasy. Of course it didn't cure the morning sickness, but the peace of mind was worth it.

The Baby is here, now what? 
A new book from American Academy of Pediatrics, THE BIG BOOK OF SYMPTOMS: A-Z GUIDE TO YOUR CHILD'S HEALTH, a resource for your child's day-to-day health and safety issues is available this August.  

I might keep this one under my pillow too- but it will be on my bookshelf for quick reference.

In this book, parent's grandparents, and caregivers, can read over everyday symptoms your child may be exhibiting. I found the book to be easily navigated, informative, and a wonderful resource for any parent/caregiver. 

What a great baby shower gift!

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that?
