Cara’s Finds

Early riser? Luckily, we’ve never had problems with our children getting up at all hours of the night. However, I know many parents are still struggling with getting their little ones to stay in bed. If that’s your case, check out this innovative night light I found via the GoodyBlog. The Good Nite Lite is a nightlight and timer in one. Set the timer for morning time and the moon transforms into a sun, letting your child know it’s okay to get out of bed. Genius!

Are you ready for some football? Hosting a Super Bowl party or attending one? Don’t forget the snacks! Check out Kraft foods, Allrecipes, Food Network, and Martha for some great ideas. Make things a little more interesting with a party game, like the 10×10 betting grid.

Susan’s Finds
Our local blogging group’s all grown up. Check out this feature article in today’s Cincinnati Enquirer about the Cincinnati Women Bloggers. Just think, it was but a twinkle in our eyes last summer. Now it’s getting press coverage! Bet we have a good turnout at tomorrow’s monthly meeting.

Raising little bookworms? I’m trying to. That’s why I like this new blog, The Almost Librarian, written by a SAHM who’s training to become a children’s librarian. She writes about great children’s books, quality websites and other resources to promote early literacy for children. A good one to bookmark!

If you’ve ever thought about opening your own daycare operation, DIY Daycare might be a good resource for you. You’ll find lots of information to begin and maintain a daycare from folks who have done it themselves, as well as personal stories and experiences from other in-home daycare providers. In this economy, I have a feeling more moms will be considering this option!

  1. Thanks for the link to the Almost Librarian site. SM is a total bookworm and I love that there’s a resource for ideas.

  2. Cara, The night light thing is cute, but it seems a little like you’re trying too hard. Wouldn’t it be more effective long term to teach kids to read a digital clock? My kids knew from about age 3 (maybe younger, I don’t really remember) that they couldn’t get up until the clock said 7 “in the first number.”

  3. Thanks for the tip, Karla. I don’t have problems with my kids getting out of bed. I just thought the night light was a cute and clever idea.
