Stormy Day Craft for Kids - Life With Captain Fussybuckets

I learned the fine art of watercolor resist back in elementary school, third grade, if I remember correctly.  After the first time, you will realize how beautiful it can look after it's finished…and if you're like me, realize that you don't need to be so lazy the next time.  This craft does take time and elbow grease, but it is totally worth it in the end.  

Whenever there is any type of change…seasons, months, sometimes [...]

Don’t Miss Out On Important Events Because Of Sinus Pressure!

This sinus pressure post has been brought to you by SUDAFED®.  All opinions are mine.

I remember being sick with a cold or allergies, especially when teaching kindergarten and I had to be outdoors every single day.  I would stand outside in the wind during playground time and just sneeze and sneeze.  With each sneeze, it felt like my head and sinuses were getting more and more clogged up and inflamed.  Have you ever tried to teach 22 kindergarten kids with a stuffy nose and sinus headache?  It's quite difficult, to say the least!  I was so miserable with [...]

I have heard a lot about cord blood banking over the years, especially during the times I was pregnant with the boys.  I never spoke with my doctors about it, and I do wish I had, to hear their opinion on the matter.  I feel like I never really got [...]

Cook PFOA-Free With the Earth Pan from Ozeri

This Earth Pan post was brought to you by Ozeri.  All opinions are mine.

I recently learned about the dangers of PFOA, which is one of the major chemicals used in Teflon, the non-stick coating on most of the non-stick pans out there.  PFOA is said to have lead to cancer and birth defects in lab animals, as well as possibly leading to birth defects in people who work to make Teflon in factories.  The Environmental Protection Agency has even declared PFOA a "likely carcinogen" [...]

The School Quandary for a Fall Child

Captain Fussybuckets' birthday is in November.  Here in Texas, you have to be 5 on September 1st to start to kindergarten.  So, while one of his cousins and most of his preschool buddies will be starting kindergarten in the Fall, he will not.  He has been in the 4's and 5's class at a two day preschool program since September.  It was the first year of this program, so they were still trying to figure out which class to put the kids in when school started.  The Captain was three when he began the 4's and 5's [...]

The Boy That Never Yawns

The other night, when Daddy and I were telling the Captain bedtime stories and Baby D had already gone to sleep in his own room, something happened that was strange….the Captain yawned.  After four+ years of being the mother of this child, I realized that he doesn't yawn very often.  I asked Daddy to confirm and he laughed and agreed, although we hadn't thought about it, really.

It's strange….Baby D yawns ALLLL the time and is a pretty good sleeper, but the Captain rarely yawns!  I was reminded of back in the day when all the [...]
