My Review Who likes a good family/drama movie? I have to admit I usually don't bring my kids to these types of movies but this time as I watched the trailer I knew my daughter would love a good dog movie. With that said I don't think the movie was appropriate for my son. He may be more sensitive than other 6-year-olds. He was on my lap during a few season after the lightning struck and when the bear came…

Tea of the Day: Caramelized Pear

Image
Tasting Notes: Fruity, Round, Sweet This delectable dessert infusion is sweet and flavorful with notes of honey, caramel, and freshly baked pear.
My Review: I have to laugh at myself.  I guess I read caramel and pear and was caught off guard when I only tasted pear and not any caramel.  Then my husband made sure to remind me and my friend that the flavor is "caramelized pear" which does not mean caramel and pear but rather they cooked the pear as caramelized pear simply is the cooking of the pear.   After a few giggles at myself, I really think the description is right on.  It is a cooked pear type of flavor and I like it!  I mean I had to get over the disappointment of no caramel but once I understood better I was very satisfied with this tea.  

Little Smiles: Curing Your Child's Fright of Dentists

Image
You’ll be looking a long time before you find someone who actually enjoys visiting the dentist. While it’s something intrusive and uncomfortable about the whole process, we know very well that it needs to be done - kind of like spending half our monthly income on paying rent.

Your children, on the other hand, don’t feel the same sense of relief of having something over and done with, and the thought of going to the dentist can be a lot scarier to some children than others. Make the hour a bit easier for them, as well as your dentist, by using these handy tips for helping them overcome their fright.
They’ll smile a lot brighter afterward, that’s for sure.
Start early
The sooner you get your children to the dentist, the better. Not just because they’ll be able to take care of any dental problems immediately, although this is also an excellent reason, but because it’s easier for them to get used to it when they start young.
Start the annual visits at around age one or when …
