Have you ever taken a trip to the doctors when it was impossible for the doctor to check your child's throat because they refused to open their mouth have the wooden stick and have the doctor stick their whole head in their mouth to check it out?
Have you ever had a sick child and really just wanted to look at their throat yourself?
Have you ever wanted to see in your child's mouth to see if those teeth have popped through yet?
WELL now you can......
Thanks to a very clever Australian Mum who went through an experience with her child that gave he the brainwave. She had to restrain her child at the doctors and hold them down, while the doctor had the wooden tongue depressor and penlight to check out their throat. After the traumatic experience Jennifer thought of the simple and clever idea of the all-in-one plastic depressor with built in light!! You may have seen Jennifer on the Shark Tank or even on the Today Show.
We all love receiving the new school photo each year and so do the grandparents! Our Primary School takes their photos in the first couple of weeks of school, so the new haircut they got on the holidays is captured and they are still fresh and happy, hopefully!
We don't have many 'notches' on our belt yet collecting photo's, but our hall table is almost full with just two kids from gymbaroo, kinder and school.
Yes we try and avoid it at all costs, but for most of us it's not possible to avoid!
When I had newborn babies I tried online shopping, but found I missed lots of things when I placed my order. Although I usually have a shopping list when I hit the shops I always add items as I shop - which I found hard to do online.
My hot tips when shopping with a toddler or any child really:
I discovered the OnTray a couple of years ago and haven't looked back. I purchased from the USA and found so many people were stopping me at the supermarket asking where I purchased from. I then realised how much everyone else loved the OnTray too and decided to import them from the USA - hence Thanks Mum was born.
The first achievement and excitement is when your little one can read a digital clock, sometimes it's not always a great thing because then they know they are going to bed early etc. The next step is to get kids to tell the time from an analogue watch, although there is no rush I know my kids love looking at the big clock we have in our house with great interest.
As with a lot of learning, there is always a tool to help kids learn a new skill. I discovered the EasyRead time teacher, with a fabulous design to teach kids a fun and EASY way to learn the time!
