The kids and I all woke up with a cough this morning. I rubbed a little RC on everyone's feet and a drop of Thieves for good measure, and I haven't heard a cough in over 45 minutes! Want to learn more about essential oils or get your own starter kit? Message me!  I can't tell you how much we are loving our oils!! #EssentialOils #kids #health

My husband bought a box of Frosted Flakes for his dad's breakfast while he was visiting. The 4 year old just called it "tiger food."

It's slime! It's silly putty! It's flubber! To be honest, I don't really know what it is, but my kids think this homemade Flubber Slime stuff is super fun!
