Shopping with Little One

Shopping with a baby or toddler is not always the easiest things to do but keeping a few things in mind can help you get the job done. 

Make sure it is a good time not only for you but your child as well. It should be at a time when your child is not hungry or tired. Perhaps it is the same time of day as your child has quiet time. This may not be possible I am aware that some children are active most the day and do not necessarily have "quiet time" of day. However, if your child is not hungry or tired for the most part the shopping trip should go easier. 

Shopping when the store is at a slower pace should help as well. We all have been there when the store is jammed, the lines are long and the frustration grows. If at all possible it is a much better time to go when your child is happy and the store is less busy. Another thing to keep in mind is to be prepared yourself.

Shopping for a few hours browsing the aisles is not something many children are ready to do. Children have a less attention span than most and would often do better to  go if you were more prepared and know ahead what you are getting. Likewise keep in mind that shopping trip with a young child should not truly be accomplished when you have a set limit of time. 

These top three tips are ones that I strictly shop by you can read more ideas at these sources

Be Kind To Spiders Week

 Do you love or loathe spiders?? In any case this is "Be Kind To Spiders" week. Spiders can be anything from fascinating to terrifying , from creepy to annoying and everything in between. Spiders are an important member in the gardening world. They help to control other pest that invade homes and gardens. Rather than spiders being insects as some think they actually belong to the arachnid family.

Spiders belong to the same arachnids family as scorpions, ticks and mites. Arachnids are found all over the world with more than 35,000 species found around the world and around 3,000 species in North America. Spiders are valuable helpers that can help keep other insects that may carry diseases or damage garden plants at bay. However, with all the help that spiders offer they are met with invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles eating them and many humans killing them as well. In fact, around the world spiders are eaten by humans and thought as a delicacy. 

This week try your best to be kind to spiders. If they cross your path then consider taking them and placing them out of your view and nearer to the food source. Perhaps if you knew that spiders may be indeed a key to better health it may help you in your kindness. Indeed spiders are being researched to see if their venom would treat memory loss after a stroke, arthritis, and some heart diseases
