Tylenol Voluntary Recall! Important for all Moms!

You may have heard that McNeil Consumer Healthcare (the makers of TYLENOL®) is voluntarily recalling certain lots of Children's and Infants' TYLENOL® liquid products that were manufactured between April, 2008 and June, 2008. All products manufactured met internal specifications. However, the company is implementing this recall because during this period, an unused portion of one inactive ingredient did not meet all quality standards. Therefore, as a precautionary measure, it was decided to recall all Children's and Infants' TYLENOL® liquid products listed below, which were made during this time.

Parents and caregivers who have questions or concerns should contact their child's health care provider or our consumer call center at 1-800-962-5357 (available Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time). Consumers can find the lot numbers on the bottom of the box containing the liquid product and also on the sticker that surrounds the product bottle. The lot numbers of the affected products are listed below.

These actions do not apply to Children's TYLENOL® Meltaways and Junior Strength TYLENOL® Meltaways. The voluntary recall applies only to select lots of Children's and Infants' TYLENOL® liquid products.

HOW MUCH SUGAR IS IN YOUR FOOD?

Due to my son's ADHD condition, six months ago I found myself wanting to try and heal him naturally through his diet. The result was amazing! He no longer has the same degree of symptoms and can function in a regular school environment without medications. My answer to healing him: making all his food's from scratch....if it comes out of a box or package it can't be healthy for you! Most importantly eliminating as much sugar as possible from his diet! I also learned that the word "organic" does not always mean healthy. I had to become an avid label reader. Is it easy? NO! The results....are completely worth it!

I was recently sent these images from a friend and was impressed by the amount of hidden sugar that is in our foods today!

FEATURED FRIDAY HANDMADE ARTIST SWEET SALLY'S SOAPS & GIVEAWAY!


Every Friday we will be featuring a new handmade designer and their store. This Friday we are featuring Sweet Sally's Soaps From Etsy

Glitterful Felt: "Tell us about your company"
Sweet Sally's Soaps: I am a soap maker living in central PA with my husband, 16 year old son and our wild husky dog Sitka. I guess I have always lived the Handmade lifestyle. My Mom, who was a very creative person, made all my clothes when I was young. She was always sewing or painting or crocheting. I went to art school and studied photography which I have pursued in one form or another, my entire adult life. I came to soap making through my love of cooking, herbs, and essential oils. I have been making soap for the last 6 years. I sell my soaps mostly at craft shows and farmer’s markets. I started my Etsy shop last summer but did little to promote it. This year I have been making a concentrated effort to get seen on line. My soaps are all made using the traditional cold process method, using only the best ingredients available. I think it is important to create an image for your business and the image I am trying to create is natural products that are not only good for your skin but also beautiful to look at. Sometimes people look at my soaps and say they are too pretty to use, but my response is that we should all use beautiful things in our everyday life and besides they are soooo much better for your skin than commercial soaps.

Glitterful Felt: "What are the links to your store?"
Sweet Sally's Soaps:

Glitterful Felt: "Do you have any coupons or discounts available?"

Sweet Sally's Soaps: I would like to offer an exclusive coupon to your readers of Free Shipping on anything in my Artfire shop. They must enter coupon code ARTFIREFS . Coupon valid 9/18 to 9/30

Glitterful Felt: "Would you like to giveaway and item to one of our readers?"

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY PHOTO

I thought this was a priceless photo of Andrew from over the weekend. We went to a visit a lab where they research the loss of life in our ocean, and teach children about how to save the ocean. They had this globe that you could go into to see what the world would look like from the inside of a fish bowl! He of course had to pose with this super funny face! ~Enjoy!

Language Experiences in Early Childhood Education

A language experience approach to reading is considered a natural program for early childhood education for the following reasons:

*It provides a sound and positive foundation for early learning experiences.

*It creates a context for self-development through direct experiences that are familiar and important to the learner

*It fosters affective and cognitive development by permitting the learner to experience himself while he is discovering important things about learning.

*It permits each learner to progress in his or her own way, at his or her own rate.

*It promotes self-expression experiences as an integral part of the communication process.

*It facilitates a sense of togetherness between adults and children

*It draws on the existing resources and talents of adults and children

*It costs little and contributes significantly to early development

*It makes reading a meaningful and purposeful experience for young children


Eggplant, Spinach & Tomato Lasagna Recipe

This is a weekly tradition in our house! I grow the eggplants and tomatoes in my backyard to ensure the freshest healthiest dish! The children love it, and the best part is that there is enough for two meals! ~ Enjoy!

Ingredients:
  • 15 oz Ricotta Cheese
  • 4 Cups Shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 2-3 jars of pasta sauce
  • Fresh tomatoes
  • Fresh Spinach
  • Fresh Eggplant
  • Lasagna noodles

Preheat oven to 375. You will cook the lasagna for 55 minutes covered with foil. Take off foil and cook for another 5 minutes.

First wash and cut-up some fresh tomatoes
Then Slice and cut some fresh Eggplant

You will want to put the eggplant in between paper towels for about 20-30 minutes to take out the bitter flavor

Make sure and salt the eggplant


First line the 13 x 9 baking pan with pasta sauce. Then add a layer of lasagna noodles


Then follow with another layer of sauce and then some ricotta cheese

On top of the ricotta cheese add some mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Then cover with fresh spinach

Then cover the spinach with the eggplant slices



Then cover with the fresh tomatoes slices


Then repeat!

End the dish with a nice layer of mozarella and parmesan

The end result is delicious!
Enjoy!

KFC, McDonald's, Pizza Hut Song Music Video

HOW TO USE AN EPI-PEN, EPI-PEN TRAINER VIDEO

As I blog about quite frequently, my son Andrew has severe food allergies. He has suffered from anaphylaxis reactions in the past and just recently had a reaction in July '09. Due to the amount and severity of his reactions the school district is requiring him to wear his epi-pen on him while at school. This way if he has a reaction there will be no question as to where to find it, because you usually have less than 2 minutes to administer it.

He really wanted to make a trainer video to show everyone how to use the epi-pen. He has been being trained frequently since he was little, although during a reaction he would have no ability to actually administer it to himself with the lack of oxygen. Here is his video! I hope that you like it!

TYLER'S 1ST DAY WITH MOMMY ALONE ~ ZOOMAR'S PETTING ZOO

Since Ella just started school yesterday was my first day alone with Tyler for the first time! When I asked him what he wanted to do, it was an easy answer for him. "I go ride a horse!"


I took him to our favorite petting zoo in San Juan Capistrano, Zoomar's!


He had so much fun kissing the goats. I had to brush his teeth really good!

He just loved this goat! This goat loved him too!



He picked the little black horse to ride. He was all smiles as they walked him along the path! We had such a great day together! I had forgotten how peaceful a day can be with only one child!

HOW TO PREVENT INFLUENZA IN THE SCHOOLS

(This was a great article emailed to me from the kids school. I thought it would be good to share with all of you!)
Influenza Preparedness for Schools

As children return to school and spend less time outdoors and more time in confined spaces, such as classrooms, there may be a rise in influenza-like illnesses.

Tips for Parents

Flu symptoms are highly contagious, particularly when people share close quarters as children do in school classrooms. Practicing some simple prevention tips can help slow the spread of colds and flu.

Please teach your children to follow these prevention tips to prevent the spread of disease:

Preventive Measures


 Practice good hand hygiene: Teach your children to wash their hands often with soap and water, especially after they cough or sneeze. For more resources on hand hygiene, please visit http://www.cdc.gov/cleanhands/.

 Practice good respiratory etiquette: Remind your child to cover their nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing, and to throw the tissue in the trash after use. Please visit www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/covercough.htm for more information.


 Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth: Germs often spread this way.

 Do not share personal items: like drinks, food, pencils and pens.


 Ask about getting a flu shot: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that all children aged 6 months up to 19 years get a flu vaccine. Call your health care provider or the Orange County Health Referral line at (800) 564-8848. For more information please visit: http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/children.htm.


 Know the signs and symptoms of the flu: These include fever (100° or higher), cough, sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, and feeling very tired.
When Flu Occurs


 Don’t send children to school if they are sick: Those with flu-like illness should stay home for at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever, or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicines (such as ibuprofen or Tylenol).


 Keep your sick child in a separate room: Try as much as possible to limit contact with household members who are not sick.


 Child care: Plan for child care at home if your child gets sick or their school is dismissed.
Planning Ahead


 Monitor the health of the sick child and any other children in the household by checking for fever and other symptoms of flu.

 Identify if you have children who are at higher risk of serious disease from the flu and talk to your healthcare provider about a plan to protect them during the flu season. Children at high risk of serious disease from the flu include: children under 5 years of age and those children with chronic medical conditions, such as asthma and diabetes.


Remember: please keep your child home if they have fever or other flu-like symptoms.

1st DAY OF SCHOOL

Today was such an exciting day for both my kids! Andrew started in 2nd grade and Ella in Kindergarten! They were both such a ball of nerves, but not as much as mommy! I am going to miss them after such a wonderful summer together!

Tyler wanted to be part of the excitement!

Look at Ella's cute backpack (even with a little bling on it!)


My two adorable kids!

ENHANCING STORYTIME ~ CHICKA CHICKA BOOM BOOM FELT STORY

Story time with your children can go beyond just reading a book with your children. You can expand on story time with our "enhancing story time"!

Today we are going to give you some suggestions on how to enhance story time with your children after you read the story Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!

We would recommend that you purchase one of our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Felt Board Stories to use while reading the book with your child. The child can help you put the letters on the felt board and it will help create a multi-sensory experience while reading the book.




Practice reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom several times before presenting it to your children. Have the children practice saying to you, "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!" A natural rhythm will emerge as you read and the children will delight in saying their lines. Pause just before all the letters fall out of the tree, and tell the children to get ready. When you turn the page they should say their lines, "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!" At the end of circle time mention that the children should look closely at the way the illustrator changed the borders using bright citrus colors, and how each letter changed when it fell from the coconut tree!


For Art: Make Bright Citrus Borders

What the children will learn: To decorate the borders of their pictures by layering paper.
Materials you will need: Bright orange, yellow, and pink construction paper, pencil, ruler, hole puncher, glue or stapler, white paper, markers, scraps of construction paper.
What to do:

  • Draw a one-inch border around the bright orange, yellow, pink construction paper

  • Let the children punch holes at random between the margin lines and the edge of the paper.

  • Place contrasting color of construction paper behind the paper with the holes and secure in place with glue or staple sheets together

  • Ask the children to make a tropical scene by drawing on the white paper with pencils or markers. Some children may want to make a collage picture of a tropical scene by gluing on scraps of brightly colored construction paper.

  • Glue the tropical scene in the center of the construction paper leaving the exposed hole-punched margins as a frame.

Younger children will spend a great deal of their time just punching the holes. Older children can experiment more with creating bold graphics like in the book!



For Cooking & Snack Time: Coconut tasting party!

What the children will learn: To taste coconut in a variety of forms. (*Please make sure that the children who are participating are not allergic to nuts!*)
Materials you will need: Coconut in a shell, newspaper, hammer, teaspoons, knife, grater, bowls, cookie sheet, toaster oven, napkins, glasses, milk
What to do:
  • Purchase a coconut in the shell

  • Have the children hold it, feel how heavy it is, how rough the outside is and have them shake it to hear the milk inside

  • Wrap the coconut in newspaper, then hit it with the hammer so that it breaks open

  • Pour the milk from the coconut and let the children taste it. (*make sure your children do not have any nut allergies!*) Dip the teaspoons in the milk to coat them for a taste.

  • Slice off a small bit of the coconut meat for the children to taste

  • Peel the coconut and let the children help grate it into bowls. Remind them of how to hold the piece of coconut meat so that they do not grate their knuckles or fingers.

  • Toast the coconut on a cookie sheet in the oven

  • Let the children taste the toasted coconut

  • Serve coconut macaroon cookies with glasses of cold milk

If possible, make the coconut macaroons from the coconut the children grated


For Mathematics & Manipulative's: Counting and Sequencing Letters


What the children will learn: To count and sequence the letters of the alphabet.

Materials you will need: Magnetic alphabet letters and felt letters from your felt set.

What to do:

  • Ask the children to find as many sets of the alphabet as they can in your house or room. Look for magnetic letters, felt letters, alphabet blocks.

  • Have the children arrange the alphabet in order

  • Ask the children one at a time to say the letters of the alphabet while touching the letters, but pause after each letter. When the child pauses, the children count. For example, child says, "A" and the other children say, "1".

  • Repeat the exercise with all the alphabet sets

  • Let the children make their names from the alphabet letters, and as they say the letters of their names, the group will count.

Older children can take the phrases found in Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and see how many words they can make from manipulating the letters.


For Music & Movement: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Up Our Coconut Tree


What the children will learn: To move in sequence while keeping the rhythm of the chant

Materials you will need: Masking tape, optional long sheets of butcher paper, markers

What to do:


  • Place a long, slightly sloping line of masking tape across the floor or make a long coconut tree by drawing a brown trunk on a sheet of butcher paper and taping it to the floor.

  • Assign each child a letter. When you reach Q R S and U V W and X Y Z, assign each set to a child

  • Tell the children that as you read you want them to move up the trunk of the coconut tree, keeping the rhythm of the chant. Then fall down. As you read their letters they should do the motions that go with the story, but so them keeping the rhythm.

  • Practice once and help any children who think of ways to show what their letters did.

  • Begin by having everyone get the beat of the chant by saying, "Chicka, Chicka, Boom Boom!"

  • Do the movement activity several times and be prepared for lots of giggles and laughter. Enjoy the fun with the children.

This chant also can be done like the bunny hop with children attaching themselves to the line as they hop along. Have one adult lead the line while the other reads the book or uses the felt story.

We hope that you enjoy enhancing this story time with your children! For more wonderful felt stories please visit our website http://www.glitterfulfeltstories.com/
