I recently had the opportunity to try Boogie Wipes. I had seen them in the stores and wondered if they were any better than tissues and wash cloths. I have three little ones and when they get colds and have runny noses they end up with dried snot on their noses and upper lips. It hurts when I wipe them with wash cloths and they do everything they can to avoid having their faces washed. My two oldest boys have already gotten colds this fall so we tried Boogie Wipes on their sore noses. They work really well (better than tissues and wash cloths) and they smell good too. They come in fresh, grape, menthol, and unscented. I was surprised at how quickly and effortlessly Boogie Wipes removed the stuck on dried stuff from my little guys' noses. They are so soft and actually help the tender skin around the nose.
Here's what's happening now at Boogie:

We have been in desperate need of a date night, as anyone with kids usually is. So we last minute decided we would try to have a "date" Saturday night.
Since we did not have a babysitter, we had to be creative. We fed and bathed the kids and dressed them in their jammies. Then ordered take out from a local Japanese restaurant. (It was excellent and I had a half price gift certificate that I purchased from our local daily deal site.)
We took our tired kids with us on the car ride to the restaurant in hopes that the drive would induce sweet dreams. We picked up dinner and our little cherubs were still awake so we took a long way home. We managed to get two out of three to fall asleep (luckily the two youngest who are the most difficult to get to sleep). We came home put the babies in bed and my husband read stories to our 4 year old and tucked him in.
We sat down to a quiet dinner alone and enjoyed sushi and lettuce wraps. I made frozen pineapple smoothies with coconut rum. Our 4 year old briefly joined us and decided that he liked our "date" and eating sushi and lettuce wraps. We let him sample and then tucked him back into bed.
After a delicious meal we watched an old movie together and enjoyed an evening to ourselves. We are going to have to do this more often.

I made this Cars pull-apart cupcake cake for my oldest son's birthday this summer. It was actually pretty simple to make. I put a small amount of frosting on the bottom of each cupcake (so they would stick to the cake board) and pushed them close together to make this S shaped road. My son's name starts with an S. I colored some frosting black and frosted the cupcakes together as if they were a cake. I then cut large flat shaped marshmallows into smaller pieces and painted them yellow with food coloring spray to make the markings on the road. I used small white sprinkles to look like gravel along the side of the road. To make this an authentic Cars cake, I raided the toy box for Lightening McQueen and Tow Mater, gave them a bath in the dishwasher and then placed them on the cake.
The hardest part was keeping the kids out of the cake at the party. They wanted to drive the cars on the cake.

I have this link on my "favorite things" page on my site. This is a really easy chore chart that you can make and print at home. I made the boys each their own charts last weekend and they really enjoyed marking their progress each day with stickers. You could also use this program to make a potty chart.
DLTK's Custom Chore Chart
Our custom chore charts will allow you to create and print a themed chart that you can hang on the fridge or wall to help remind your children of the chores they need to take care of. You add your own title to the chart and then customize the row and column headings. Choose a picture for the top of your chore chart from a variety of themes. You can create your chart in color or black and white so that your child has something to color before hanging it on the fridge. Enjoy!
