Support Safe Kids Worldwide
As a parent, we all know how much kids love Band-Aids. They are a fashion accessory that they can never get enough of. My daughter will put five Band-Aids on just because she loves the design. The new Monsters, Inc and Jake and The Never Land Pirates Band-Aids were certainly a hit when they arrived at my house. The kids were fighting over which ones they wanted. Then, of course there's the Cynthia Rowley version with attractive designer prints on Band-Aid's. Who knew you could be fashionable and cover an injury? The flexible fabric BAND-AIDS are great for an injury on a joint.
My house is filled with these products, and NEOSPORIN and BAND-AIDs are in every bathroom. It's a brand that we know is going to work for our needs. We've used it as kids, and now we can use it for our children.
A product you may not be familiar with is the BAND-AID Friction Block Stick. It's a small stick that's great to keep in the shoe closet so you can remember to apply it to your feet before wearing a new pair of shoes.
In celebration of the 125th Anniversary of the First Aid Kit, you can receive a First Aid Bag free!
Now at CVS you can purchase three of the following products from BAND-AID: Brand Adhesive Bandages, NEOSPORIN products, BENADRYL Anti-Itch Topical products, Johnson & Johnson RED CROSS Brand First Aid products, and you will receive a free first aid bag. For every bag redeemed, the Topical Healthcare Brands will donate to Safe Kids Worldwide. To learn more
I received products from Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. and also received compensation from Macaroni Kid. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.

In this book, “Because I’m Your Dad” is followed up with “You can have spaghetti for dinner.” And other neat things. The dad shares his love, and his wish for a special relationship with his child in a series of rolicing activities. The book is festooned with monsters, robots, mud-forts and more ...
“The greatest thing a FATHER can do to his children, is to love their mother.” - Anjaneth Garcia Untalan
“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.“- Jim Valvano
“My Father...He was there when I didn't understand, he was there when I was wrong, he was there when I cried, he was there when I lied. For some reason my dad was always there when I needed him ...
Celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in June, Father’s Day was created for children to honor their fathers. We all know fathers and father figures deserve recognition, but what you may not know is how the tradition turned into a national day.
It all started in 1909 with a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington. While listening to a Mother’s Day sermon, Sonora came up with the idea for Father’s Day as a way to honor her father, Henry Jackson Dodd. After having been raised by ...
Father's Day gifts are always a struggle. Dads have it easy on Mother's Day -- flowers, jewelry, a beautiful trinket, a few hours of quiet time -- we're easy to please. But Father's Day gifts are hard. Do we go sentimental? Do we go manly? Do we encourage a new hobby? (That hardly ever works out for me... the beer making kit is STILL sitting in the basement two years later and don't even get me started on the Dremel tool.)
Just like Moms, Dads just want ...

You will need:
poster board, cardstock or foam board
Using posterboard, cardstock or a sturdier prop, cut or carve out the letters to the message you want to send. You can write out the letters as normal. No need to turn them inside out or backwards!
Notes To Selves:
Don't use paper.
I tried paper first and found it entirely too flimsy in the wind outside.
So we moved on to what I had in my garage ...
Thanks to Fellow MK Publisher Mom, Maggie MacKay, for this great Father's Day gift idea!
What you’ll need…
Plastic container- I used one of those see through “paint can” containers, which I found at Michael’s
Foam letter stickers
Foam stickers- your choice (beach theme, sports theme, hearts, etc.)
BIG bag of individually wrapped chocolate Riesens candy
Computer for word processing or markers
What to do…
On the front of the plastic container use the foam letters to write “So Many Riesens We Love Daddy” – you can ...

Our Tradition..What's Yours?
Every Father's Day my girls and I wake up to hurriedly ready the living room for our super special Father's Day Tea Party. We take the old beat up Ikea kids table and quickly haul it into the living room before Daddy wakes up. Then we begin the special preparations!
1. Super beautiful table cloth. CHECK!
2. Mommy pulls out the, GASP, "pretty plates and forks that we aren't allowed to touch on regular days." CHECK.
3. We bust open a can of cinnamon rolls and put ...
There’s really no way you can mess up a pork tenderloin! I always buy mine at Costco – comes two to a pack and there are two packs! I cook one pack and freeze the other for another day.
What you need:
Bottled Italian Dressing
What you do:
Line your crock pot with a liner (best tip ever!) and place the pork tenderloin inside.
Shake the bottle of dressing and squirt some in there. I don’t measure – I just give it several squirts. I might use about ...
Beer-Soaked Corn and Grilled Veggies
This weekend is Father's Day and my day to barbecue for the family. This is my gift (Thanks, Russ!). Cooking is one of the things I like doing most. I don't care about gifts on Father's Day. In fact, I usually get BBQ gear or NY Yankees stuff (Uh oh, guess I have to return our gifts!). No matter, all I look forward to is my family having a good day together. I was thinking, maybe it's time to teach my wife to use the barbecue ...
Thanks to Fellow MK Publisher, Roseann Sicola for sharing this great family recipe!
Growing up, anyone with a summer birthday in my family always got Ice Box Cake as their birthday cake. Two of my three boys have June birthdays, so I'm carrying on the tradition. It is an easy and refreshing treat in the summer that's also great anytime of year!

Remember your first s’more? Not much to it, but it tasted better than any dessert you’d ever had. That goes for just about anything cooked over a campfire.
