Heeeeeeeeeey! Happy Friday. Am I right? After having a bunch of short weeks with the Holidays, this week took fooooooorever—> also Luke was going through a tough time (see below) so that doesn’t help either! Super excited about this weekend. Catching up on sleep, baking some banana bread and teaching bodypump on Sunday morning at the YMCA (11am for any locals!!).
Here are my favorites from this week. . . enjoy and feel free to link up with any variation of Friday happiness you want!!
We are headed to Maui in February! I am so excited about it now because this week has been COLD in MN. Like –15 is the high for the day kind of cold. Have you ever been? Any suggestions??
This week, Luke has been teething something fierce. Crying, drooling, not sleeping, fussy over nothing, and pretty much just miserable. Whenever Luke is teething, I am always concerned that I am not missing something more. .. so I am constantly checking his temperature. I haven’t had any luck finding a good children’s thermometer.
Thank goodness, Luke hasn’t been sick too much, but when he is, it has been a total pain to try to take his temp. Parents, you know what I am talking about. You either have a sleeping child or one that is crying on your shoulder, and then to try to get that thermometer behind their ear and hold it there until it beeps, ya, right. Next to impossible.
This thermometer is the bomb. Just a quick swipe on the forehead. and done. And it has color settings – green, yellow and red. Perfect at 2am when you are trying to figure out how worried you need to be about your little one.
And our old thermometer was NOT baby proof. This one is! I was on the phone with tech support one Friday while Luke and I were home together and in the middle of the phone call, I look over and Luke is sitting on the floor (quietly), having taken it off the kitchen table, pushing all the buttons, saying beep beep, putting the cover on and off, etc. Normally, I wouldn’t have let him play with it, but when you are on the phone. . . you know how that goes. . . well 10 minutes later, I still had a quiet child and an intact thermometer. 2 thumbs up.
Bonus points because he loves to take his temperature and Dad’s temperature.
**I received the Braun Forehead thermometer complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster. BUT as usual, all opinions are my own and I 100% love this thermometer.
This KIND bar. I eat it way to fast to take a picture of the actual bar. . .
