The Bully and the Shrimp

The Bully and the Shrimp

When small-for-his-age Noah Shrimpton moves to a new school, the class bully starts picking on him. Noah has no friends to support him and is afraid to tell anyone. He starts to use his journal to express himself, doodling all sorts of outlandish scenarios where he beats the bully (sometimes involving superheroes or giants!). Follow Noah as he learns to make friends and gain the confidence to stand up to the bully in this contemporary tale. Developed in conjunction with school teachers and child development experts, this picture book deals with the current issue of bullying in a sensitive way and is perfect for any school-aged child and their parents. You can purchase on Amazon here.


As you may be aware bullying is a real thing which many of our children face daily and sadly in some cases we are unaware of what is happening to our children. As adults and parents the best thing we can do for our kids is teach them to one not be the bully and two speak up when someone is bullying them.  The Bully and the Shrimp was a good book which even though as far as I know my kids haven't been bullied they do often do it to each other, so it was a nice story to share with them along with having them open up and express their feelings about bullying. I would recommend this book to all kids of all ages even I picked up on some things while reading it with my kids.

The illustrations are very well put together making for a easy to read book, even if my daughters are guessing on the words they soon pick up the correct word by repeating.

RAPIDFORCE Physio Hybrid Shapes

After having 5 kids and 4 epidurals my back is almost always sore, I have tried heat patches before because I need something which can be on the go. RapidForce has come out with a new spin on the patch system, with crazy new designs, but guess what! They really hit the spot! 



Fifteen times stronger than kinesiology tape, RapidForce Physio Hybrid Shapes are a revolutionary hybrid of a brace and kinesiology tape. The pre-cut compression fabric shapes aid in pain reduction and improved stability for the most frequent musculoskeletal issues and injuries. The shapes are engineered to deliver endurance, stability and pain relief to athletes and fitness enthusiasts during times of muscle and joint soreness and discomfort. With the perfect balance of strength and elasticity, the shapes apply the right amount of force to support the muscles without inhibiting natural movement.  This force aids the body to bring new oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the sore or injured area to help facilitate healing.


The Physio Hybrid Shapes are adhesive applications that are applied directly to your skin and remain on for up to five days. The shapes were designed using the science of physiology and movement to mimic the muscle structure of the body. Each shape has a center point where it gives the most structure and support and 'arms' that borrow stability and strength from underlying muscles, tendons and ligaments, providing reinforcement and increased circulation to the injured area. Strong points about the RapidForce:

Its Unique Design:
  • 15X stronger than kinesiology tape
  • Compression fabric flexibility
  • 1-5 day wear
  • Easy to apply and wear
  • Acrylic medical-grade adhesive formula, hypo-allergenic and latex free

Promotes Healing:
  • Reduces pain and inflammation
  • Improves joint stability
  • Improves blood flow
  • Increases range of motion

October 29th is National Cat Day!

I love all animals in fact we have 3 snakes, 2 water frogs, a turtle, a gecko, and a orange color lizard, but my favorite and most loved are my 2 cats Milo and Bumblebee.



I don't mind dogs, but after seeing friends and family with them I see how owning a dog is like having kids. With dogs you have to find a sitter when you go on vacations or are up in all hours of the night letting them out back so they can go. Then you have cats! : ) Cats are great! Cats just come and go as they please, they can use a cat box, when we leave for a trip we just over kill the food, leave the toilets up, and have a few extra cat boxes and they are set.

Because of the awesomeness of cats there is a whole National Cat Day which is October 29th. Wicked Cool Toys has come out with a fun Cat Paw! Which is a toy that looks like well a cat paw. It is a long stick which at one end has a handle with a trigger and the other end a fluffy cat looking arm and paw. When you pull the trigger the cat paw moves up and down and meows. The Cat Paw makes for a fun way to tease your cat, freak people out while driving : ) , bug a sibling who has locked themselves in and so much more.



My kids love playing with the Cat Paw, they seem to focus mainly on the cats but when out they like to hang it out the window and "wave" at people. The Cat Paw is a fun way to show your pride on Nation Cat Day October 29th. You can purchase a Cat Paw at your local ToysRUs and retail stores.

Share your cat stories with the world using @mycatpaw  #catpaw and #nationalcatday or Instagram (thecatpaw).

Make your own Caramel in 3 Easy Steps!

Make your own Caramel in 3 Simple steps

Step 1 buy Sweetened Condensed Milk

Step 2 Place in a bowl of water fill over the can 




Step 3 Boil for 2 and a half hours. 




Let cool and enjoy! Yes it works I tried it and it was the best caramel I have had in a long time and way cheaper then purchasing a bag and slowly melting along with less mess! 


Side notes: One I saw this streaming through facebook so I figured I would try it, so I did. I worried the can would blow up but I guess because its a liquid inside I saw the boil seem to focus around the can and the can would move around but it never blew up......thank god. Another note is that because of blowing water it of course is evaporating so at about a hour you wanna check it and probably add some more water so the can stays under water. 3rd is that you wanna wait to open it, because I figured the can would blow up and though yeah right I opened it and it popped open which had it fly around lucky for me I had it in my skin area so it didn't get on to much, on top of the fact it was still hot. Just things to watch out for but enjoy!
