So this is a funny tip and a no brainer. Probably all of you know this already but my husband and I could’ve used this tip a week ago: Do not buy a bag of marshmallows on your lunch break if you plan on leaving them in a 117 degree car [...]
Have experience cleaning up messes from a drink box being squeezed and squirting everywhere but into your child’s mouth? If you have kids, grandkids, or babysit little ones I’m sure you have.
