Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I would eat breakfast three times a day if I could. One of the reasons I crave it so much is because I love bacon and eggs. They just make the classic all-American breakfast. Recently, I have been trying to replace the pork bacon I traditionally enjoy with a leaner option like Butterball turkey bacon. Butterball turkey bacon is a great choice for staying fit and eating right. With 65% less fat than pork bacon and only 25 calories per slice, it has allowed me to keep enjoying my favorite meal of the day with no guilt. These Turkey Bacon and Egg Breakfast Muffins are a great tasting way to start the day. I love to make them and freeze the extras and pop one in the microwave on hectic mornings.

Fine Motor Skills Halloween Game

I loathe bugs. Seriously, anything creepy or crawly just gives me the willies. My good friend Erin, who writes at Love So Munch, says it's a good thing I have girly girls, because a bug-loving boy would be too much for me. There are some bugs I can tolerate though, like toy bugs. I found some great spiders, bugs and snakes last Halloween at the dollar store and the kids love playing with them. I have come up with a number of ways to use them such as in this Spider Invasion Game and this Halloween Invitation to Play. Today I used them in this Fine Motor Skills Halloween Game which is a great exercise for little hands and a fun activity leading up to Halloween.

Cold season is just around the corner. Those words send fear through the hearts of many moms. Just when it seems like your child is settling into a school routine - BAM - they get hit by a cold. I was surprised to learn from the CDC that school aged kids get between 8-12 colds a year. These colds can last anywhere from 6 days to 2 weeks according to the Canadian Pediatric Society, and in my house and they are ALWAYS spread to me. No matter how much hand washing and preventive measures I take, I get the cold and mine ALWAYS last 2 weeks. The only thing that makes my coughs and colds bearable is that I am able to take medicine to relieve the symptoms. My kids however haven't been as fortunate. They do not like the taste of most medicines, so they refuse to take it and end up being cranky and suffering through a cold.

When I heard about the new Dr. Cocoa™ for Children line of cough and cold medicines, I thought it might just be a solution to our problems. Why? Dr. Cocoa™ for Children is the first-ever cough and cold medicine for kids with patented formulas combining trusted, effective ingredients with 10% real cocoa for great chocolate taste to make giving medicine to kids easier. Where was this stuff when I was a kid and choking down awful tasting medicine?
