Family Pictures: My Granddaughter and Greedy Baby. Plus, My Cousin Is In the Running for Miss Nevada!

Since I can’t get my sons, the hubs, or oldest daughter to cooperate with pictures, I’m happily loading up on pics of my granddaughter, Greedy Baby and my lovely cousin today!

First up is the granddaughter.

She’s 7 months old now and no longer whiney. Hallelujah! The child has the cutest fat rolls on her legs I’ve ever seen. She’s all cushy & squeezy ‘n stuff and I love her. I’m babysitting this weekend, but I’ve requested that the child poop before she gets to my house. The poopy diaper part I’m not excited about. GAH!

And then there’s Greedy Baby.

Even though she was bullied at school for eating salad at lunch, she is still on the salad grind and I’m damn proud of her. As you can see from the pic, she’s a little bit cray-cray like her momma.

I’m also soooo excited to share the news that my beautiful younger cousin, Lindsey Pinapfel, is in the running for Miss Nevada United States!

As you can see, my family is very diverse.  It’s one of the things I love about my extended clan. The pageant will be held in Las Vegas on April 19th. I wanted to share this here to show my support for Lindsey and to tell her that I love her.

Have a fabulous weekend, everybody! xo

My child is ruining my fitness life.

First, my weight training gloves went missing. Then two of my speed ropes disappeared. These items were last seen in the possession of my gremlin-child. And now? My foam roller has been turned into a Crayola shrine.

Just in case you’re wondering, those legs with the ashy knees — the ones wearing the disco dress — she is the culprit. So ya, my child is ruining my life… sorta?

But ohhhh, look at that cute little face. She’s so proud of her “art project”. I will rage no fitness-fury against the gremlin. But I will wise up and start hiding my stuff, especially since I caught her in my jewelry box this morning. As for my foam roller, that thing was previously shanked to death with a pencil before being turned into a shrine.

The violence against my fitness gear is too much for me to stand. ((sigh))

3 Uses For Colloidal Silver You Didn’t Think Of Yet

I thought I knew it all. I was the official colloidal silver snob of the Interwebs, telling you how I give silver to my kids to annihilate ear infections and eye infections, and to treat other issues without the need for a doctor to get involved. No prescription required, baby.

But, oops. When the people at Sensible Silver sent me their fact sheet on uses for colloidal silver, I got pimped slapped with some extra knowledge never before known to my brain cells.

Sensible Silver sent me samples along with the dosage sheet. I do not have an affiliate relationship with them, nor was I paid for this post. Ya’ll simply know how I feel about the awesomeness of silver. I can’t shut up about it.

This is what I learned from Sensible Silver’s dosage sheet that I didn’t realize I could be doing:

  1. Use silver for daily dental hygiene. Aka, mouthwash.
  2. Use it as a natural hand sanitizer
  3. Use it as a household sanitizer after food prep and add it to your cool mist vaporizer

Click on the image to enlarge the full dosage sheet:

I started implementing these additional uses right away. Silver is a must-have to keep in your home. If you didn’t know that, I encourage you to read my Colloidal Silver Facts, Benefit and Risks post and start keeping a bottle around.

My Most Recent Uses for Silver:

  1. My mom had a terrible sore throat. I had her gargle with silver. It gave her instant relief that lasted for hours.
  2. Once again (ugh), Greedy Baby came down with red, watery, crusty eyes due to allergies that (historically) has always turned into an eye infection if I don’t act on it fast. I gave her silver in the eyes twice a day for two days. It knocked the problem right out.
  3. My 9 year old son broke his tooth on a seed. It caused him to have an abscess. The dentist gave us antibiotics, but I stopped giving him those meds on day two (of a 10-day regimen). I began treating him with silver instead. He swished the silver in his mouth 2X day. It cleared the infection and it has not returned. That baby tooth has since fallen out.

Sensible Silver started out just like me — a normal, everyday person intrigued with the benefits of silver. But they took it even further until a full-blown business was born. They’ve got some great information on their website that separates the real facts from the hype. Check out their Benefits of Colloidal Silver and Common Sense Uses For Silver, and consider snagging their Starter Kit.

Now excuse me. I’ve got a tasty salad to eat, so I gotta run. Shout out in the comments if you’re part of the silver family or think you might wanna be…which you should — you need to be part of the colloidal silver family. Sheesh!
