Last night we picked up our Citrus Lane February 2012 package from the post office.
Items in the box are:
- Oball with Rainstick Rattle
- Baby Bug February Issue
- “You are my little Bird” by Elizabeth Mitchell cd
- Petite Lemon Alphabet Print
- 479 Popcorn Fleur de sel Caramel
Whether you’re listening to music with your child or helping her solve a wooden puzzle, this month’s Citrus Lane box is all about play. We hope these resources will keep your child busy and happy during the last, blustery days of winter!
Whether we’re reading oldies like Where The Wild Things Are or new friends like Where Is My Hat, our most treasured moments with our children often happen during evening storytime. Here are great recommendations for soon-to-be classics, from some very well-read bloggers.
We’ve gathered more of our favorite children’s books on our Books For Children Pinterest board. It’s a great mix of classics, both old and new. Many were suggested by parents in our community!
According to a study last year put out by a British Medical Journal, giving babies Tylenol (or other acetaminophen products) before their scheduled vaccines isn’t the best idea as it can reduce the effectiveness of the vaccine itself.
If you feel strongly about minimizing your child’s discomfort, you can talk to your doctor about a cream called EMLA. EMLA is a topical anesthetic that you apply about an hour before the shot is administered. You’ll need a prescription from your doctor to buy the cream, and an approximate time when the shot(s) will be given so you’ll know when to apply it.
Last time my son had to have shots the nurse had me hold him so he was sitting on my lap instead of holding him down in a laying position on the table. Since he was sitting on my lap during the shot, he was more calm than ever and he didn’t even cry until we were out in the car (20 minutes later). It helped me alot and that’s the only way that I’m going to hold him from now on
Disney’s Dreamers Academy
A Word from Steve Harvey
When The Walt Disney Company approached me about partnering to create Disney’s Dreamers Academy, I knew we were going to start something special because it shared the same goal that inspired me to start The Steve Harvey Foundation and The Steve Harvey Mentoring Weekend for Young Men — giving young people the tools they need to realize their dreams.
I truly believe that dreaming is more important than anything. Dreams fuel our imaginations, inspire our passions, and make the impossible come to life right before our eyes. They are extremely powerful and we should do all we can to help young people get the right opportunities to make their dreams come true. Disney’s Dreamers Academy helps our youth make their dreams come true. And I encourage everyone to explore the program and see what Disney’s Dreamers Academy is all about. You’ll discover that with the right support our children will not only have the tools they need to become overachievers, they’ll also bring their passion back to our communities and inspire others to reach for their dreams too.
