It worries me a lot when my darling daughter gets sick? Who wouldn’t worry when someone in the household is not feeling well? I mean if a family member is ill, our instincts tell us to check everything. We quickly check the temperature by feeling the forehead of the neck. We ask where is hurting. If he or she points to the head, then we’ll let them take a pain reliever. But to double check the temperature, we use a thermometer. It’s a very essential item in the house. If the body temperature is 100.4 F or over, then a fever is running.
Braun No Touch Forehead Thermometer
When I take my little one to the doctor’s office for a check up, they check her temperature by lightly swiping a thermometer on her forehead. I thought I would like to have a thermometer like that. But the Braun® No touch forehead thermometer is just right. I am very pleased to get a chance to try the Braun® No touch forehead thermometer. You just have to point the device on the forehead 1-2 inches away then it checks the body temperature quickly. I tried it on me and my daughter twice. My daughter’s temperature was 94.5 on first try and 94.8 on the second try. Mine was 98.4 on first try and 98.5 on second try.
The Braun® No touch forehead thermometer is battery-operated so you have to put two AA alkaline batteries in it. I was glad it came with two batteries already.
It comes with two AA batteries.

Petting the sheep.
On our way home from my work last night, I remembered to stop by at someone’s house to pick up a pre-owned Mickey Mouse toddler dress sold to me for $3. It was from a local online garage sale group on Facebook. Unfortunately, the toddler dress was not on the porch so my darling daughter and I headed home. We passed thru downtown Wylie and I saw some barricades and when I looked around, the park was all lit up. I thought something nice is going on at the park. So I told DD about it and we agreed to stop by and look. It was about 7:30 P.M.
So many people were there – grown ups, big kids, small kids, and babies. There were animals, too. I didn’t have much time to take photos of the tents and booths because K was excited to look at the animals. It was a mini Petting Zoo. There were two goats, a sheep, and a pig. Boy, how she loved that! There was a super big inflatable bounce and slide but we didn’t go there because it was so high and K said she liked petting the animals better.
Petting the goat.
Then we head to the playground because K wanted to swing but the four swings were occupied. So she went to the other playground set. She had fun climbing up and down the stairs and sliding down the small and big slides. Then I heard the emcee said that it was 10 minutes before the fireworks. So we waited for it before we went home. It was nice. K said, “I love watching fireworks.” “Me, too,” I said. After the fireworks, I let K play for 20 minutes then we head home.
By the way, on our way to the car, I asked someone what’s the special event about. He said it was National Night Out for the city.

Every parent’s desire is to see his/her child reach a milestone. And there are lots of milestones to look forward to. One of them is when the child learns how to go to the potty. That is just an awesome achievement. But we do not have to force the little ones to do it. We can teach them how and wait for them when they are ready. Potty training toddlers is not an easy task. It requires patience. But if you’re little tot is ready, potty training comes easy.
Well, my darling daughter is already potty trained. I was very happy that day when she asked me to take her to the bathroom because she wants to go. That was a “hurray” moment. Did that mean good-bye diapers already? No. Not yet for us at least for another year maybe? I still put a diaper on K at bedtime. My concern is bed wetting. There are nights that K pees while sleeping. So I don’t take chances of that to happen without her diaper on. Or else she will be soaking wet in the bed.
Thanks to Well Beginnings™ Diaper and wipes for the opportunity to try them on K. Not only the diapers are comfortable, they are very absorbent and leak-free. The wipes are soft and smooth on her skin. The wipes don’t leave any particles on K’s skin. I like that.
The Well Beginnings™ diapers fit just right on her and the snaps don’t hurt or poke her skin. The price is affordable and you can find these at Walgreens.
But how should I solve bed wetting problem? What I do is let K go before bed. And I don’t let her drink much water at night. These helps minimize the possibilities of bed wetting.

Visited the Disney Store for the very first time.
After a very fun double birthday celebration this afternoon, I took my darling daughter to the mall. It’s been a while since our last visit to the Stonebriar Centre in Frisco, Texas. Besides the play area, there is a carousel located on the second level by the food court. That’s what K asks me sometimes – if we can go to the mall where the round-about is. And because my girl friend’s daughters’ birthday party was held at her house in Frisco, I thought I’d take K to Stonebriar mall and let her ride the carousel. Oh she got so excited when she saw the big carousel. The cost to per ride is $2. But there are two token machines where you can get tokens. I bought 5 tokens and boy, K had fun switching horses. I felt a little dizzy after that five 2-3 minutes duration spins.
K was very happy riding the carousel.
I didn’t know that the Disney Store is just right across the food court. So when we got off the carousel, K quickly saw the store. Oh my goodness! She wanted to go inside. And so, today was quite memorable because it’s the first time she went to the Disney Store. K was very fascinated with the Disney characters on display, the toys, and the castle. Some of the stuff for sale aren’t cheap so I was kind of nervous K will ask me to buy something out of the budget. And she did. She said she wanted to get a new tea set and she picked the Belle character tea set. But I told her it’s a little expensive so I talked her into buying something else. She found the Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip castle set. The price was lower than the tea set so I bought it for her. Good thing I didn’t buy the pair of shoes I saw earlier at Dillards. Whew.
We had a little snack at the food court then we went for a stroll in the mall for a few minutes. I remembered seeing a train traveling around on the lower level of the mall. My darling daughter enjoys riding on a train. So I let her ride the train for a little while. It was $4.35 per ticket per ride, by the way. Then I got the chance to sit down and rest my feet. I was on my feet for at least an hour, you know.
On our way home, K kept talking about the carousel ride and the trip to the Disney Store. I heard lots of “Thank you’s”. I am happy knowing that she had a great time. Mother and daughter day out is exhausting but seeing my child happy makes me feel happy.
She always liked to sit in the front car of the train. :)
