Good idea for future kiddos
Good idea. To get ungrounded you must earn X amount of points. You could also add humanitarian things instead of household stuff. Ideas: reading to the elderly, donating toys to children and taking them to them, volunteering different places like animal shelters, soup kitchens and so on. This will help them see how privlaged they are, help them be more kind and caring and see there is more to life than just them. Good lessons for life and teaching compassion.
I love this idea! Great idea for future parenting.

38 Books To Read Aloud With Kids
Beverly Cleary, Reading, Remember This, Growing Up, Childhood Book, Favorite Book, Kids Book, Children Book, Ramona Quimby
One of my favorite childhood books to read
If I had to choose one of my favorite childhood authors I would say Beverly Cleary would be at the top of my list. In elementary school in fourth grade we had to write a book report at least twice a week. I often covered different books of Ramona Quimby and her adventures. The author did an amazing job of putting the reader in the shoes of Ramona Quimby. I remember this was the very first Beverly Cleary book I read.
Ramona Quimby I've wanted this as a tat forever but it must be a perfect and total rendition as to do my favorite little kid book justice.

For kids or Dogs - Pond - Place a plastic kiddie pool in the ground. It'd be easy to clean and looks nicer than having it above ground. Big dogs can't chew it up or drag it around.

Dog Pond - but I think its a good idea for kids. Place a plastic kiddie pool in the ground. It'd be easy to clean and looks nicer than having it above ground. Big dogs can't chew it up or drag it around.
Dog Pond - Place a plastic kiddie pool in the ground. It'd be easy to clean and looks nicer than having it above ground. Big dogs can't chew it up or drag it around. Could work for kids too. And when it's not summer it could be a fire pit
Dog Pond - Place a plastic kiddie pool in the ground. Instead of a plastic kiddie pool, I would rather just have a doggie pool built for Tucker but I like the idea.

The best Baby Teething Tips and Remedies #teething #baby #kids
Teething tips relief and remedies for baby While teething never really bothered Rosie, Jewel has been having such a difficult time with it. She struggled when her first teeth were coming in, and now she is getting her molars and it has been even worse. Poor Jewel was in so much pain, and given that this was a parenting first for me, I had no idea how to help her. So I turned to you, my readers, for tips and advice. I put a call out for your best baby teething tips and remedies on the Growing A Jeweled Rose facebook page and the responses were so helpful! So helpful that I wanted to compile them into a post here for others who are also in need of great baby teething tips! Baby Teething Tips & Remedies: ~ Amber teething jewelry- several people suggested amber teething necklaces . These necklaces offer a natural, drug- free alternative to soothing teething tots. Besides that, they are beautiful, lightweight, and have a lot of other homeopathic benefits. You can read all about amber teething necklaces as well as shop a great selection here. We just ordered one for Jewel, and I can not wait for it to get here! ~ Hyland's Teething Tablets- Hyland's Teething Tablets are another great homeopathic teething remedy. Several readers suggested these tablets. They are made from natural medicines and quickly dissolve once they hit babies tongue. Hyland's also makes a teething gel . ~ Camilia Teething Medicine- yet another homeopathic remedy. Camilia teething medicine is an all natural teething remedy that comes in liquid form. While we have yet to try this remedy, I love that it comes in sterile single use doses. Camilia teething medicine can be purchased at Whole Food Markets as well as many local pharmacies. Visit their site to find a retailer near you. ~ A cold wash cloth- several readers mentioned a chilled wet wash cloth. We have since tried it, and it really does help! Jewel loved gnawing on it, and the cool cloth seemed to help alleviate some of the pain. The cloth was also great at catching all of that teething drool- bonus! ~ A cold raw carrot to bite on- this tip from a reader was so helpful! Jewel enjoyed the flavor of the raw carrot. The coolness helped with the pain, and her teeth are not near strong enough to bite into the carrot, making this a safe and very frugal teething tip! ~ Frozen foods- many readers recommended frozen foods. Some examples of foods mentioned were whole frozen green beans, frozen fruit slices, and ice cubes made of juice and then placed in a mesh feeder. We have tried the juice ice cubes, and Jewel loved them! ~ The Teethifier 2 Advanced Back Teether- while I have not tried this product, it does look like it would be quite helpful, especially for babies who take a pacifier (Jewel doesn't). You can real more about it here. ~ Baby Orajel- Baby Orajel is the #1 recommended teething brand used by pediatricians. It is an instant relief gel, and comes in a pleasant cherry flavor. We have used this product several times, and it does provide some relief. ~ Tommee Tippee Baby Teethers- Tommee Tippee Baby Teethers come in a variety of different styles for every stage of teething. While some are meant for beginning teethers, others are specifically designed for the later stages of the teething process. I have not tried these products, but they were heavily recommended to me, and they look like they would be very helpful. ~ Gripe Water- Gripe water is a home remedy known to help with teething pain. There are several different kinds out there, and all have slightly different ingredients. One that was specifically recommended to me in an email from a reader was Little Tummy's Gripe Water ~ A frozen bagel- YES! This has helped Jewel a lot! Just be sure to watch baby closely. As they gnaw on the bagel and it softens, it can break apart. ~ Cold celery sticks- I had no idea that celery was a natural pain killer until a reader mentioned it. I then researched it a bit, and found out that it is in fact a natural remedy, and has been used as a pain killer since 30 AD. You can real all about the benefits of celery here. ~ Infant Tylenol- Infant Tylenol is great for reducing pain in teething tots. We use it often. However, I try to limit the use of medicine and usually reserve it's use for night time so that we can all get a good nights sleep. ~ Lots of cuddles and love- If your babe is having trouble teething, spend as much time as possible cuddled up together. If you nurse, nurse more during this time. Hey, we can always use an excuse to stay in bed with our babes, right? ;) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Thanks so much to my readers for sharing their baby teething tips with me! These tips have been so helpful to Jewel. I am certain they will be a helpful resource to other parents facing the problem of painful teething too! - See more at: http://www.growingajeweledrose.com/2012/08/baby-teething-tips-and-remedies.html?m=1#sthash.wJRoDshW.dpuf
