Another Wonderful Mother Daughter Day #motherhood

My daughter is at that stage of changes, meaning next year she will head into Middle School. This is a tough school year for most children, cliques begin to form, old friendships fade and new friendships are found. It’s a tough time for anyone during any generation, I can imagine. With that being said, I noticed my daughter was in some need to have a mother and daughter day. I discussed the idea with my fiance, who agreed to stay home with my sons and have a day with them, while I went off with my daughter to get a bit of time focusing on just her. I felt it would be a great boost of spirits for her as well as myself!

There is one small pharmacy downtown that my daughter and I love so much, that is Z Pharmacy, they have a gifts and sandwich shop inside too! I haven’t eaten there yet but I do enjoy visiting their gift shop area. The shop is full of positive messages, cute shirts and other items that just make my daughter and I smile. Shown above is a shirt, I must have and a children’s chandelier that caught my eye.

Upstairs I found myself in their irreverent corner where there are some not so kid friendly items, but mostly just gag gift silliness that isn’t too non-child exposure needed. I loved the top three items shown in picture above, and honestly I am seriously debating having that reluctant bride for our cake topper because it’s seriously perfect!

Once we were done window shopping at ZuZu’s Gift Shop, we went down to the local Thrift Store to see what they may have. My daughter tried on the dress shown above and purchased some yarn for her knitting addiction. Afterwards I realized that getting some groeries would be necessary as I hadn’t gone grocery shopping yet so we stopped into our local Shaws. First thing to do? Grab something out of the gumball machine because one never does outgrow the gumball machine!

Another store stop and then it was time for us to venture back home to my fiance and the boys. We were sad to have to return to the house of males, but we were happy to have these couple hours to enjoy just us girls.

 And yes, I do think this girl time boosted both of our spirits quite a bit!

Medical Alert Systems for your Loved Ones

I am sure you all have seen commercials for the medical alert system, what sticks in my mind is those commercials that say “Help I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”, while I am not 100% sure if that commercial is the same product, it is what comes to my mind while writing this.

Alert 1

What I love most about the medical alarm devices is that it allows some freedom for our loved ones, as we get older the last thing we probably want to admit is that we are aging and have to have help. I firmly believe that the longer a person can stay in their own comfort zone, live in the familiarity of their own home, surrounded by things they have grown to call “home”, then they may just stay independent and healthy a bit longer.

I have an older grandfather and my great grandparents are still living who are, I believe, about the same age as my Grampa on my Dad’s side. These few loved ones in my life are pushing into their 90′s now and while they are getting older and showing signs of aging, they are still living in their normal surroundings, heck my Grampa still goes to the farm to try to cut wood or run the tractors. I firmly believe my grandfather and great grandparents are living longer into their 90′s because of the way they are able to live independently or with little assistance while enjoying their homes they have lived at for years.

Keeping the normalcy around for the elders while still giving them devices to alert medical staff with a push of the button or an alarm situation that goes off on it’s own with a certain situation that triggers it, is the perfect compromise for you and your loved one to meet in the middle with. They wish to stay at home and be independent but you want that security of knowing your loved one is safe, that is why medical alarm devices would be a fantastic compromise for any of you facing what to do with aging elders.

I am all for enabling elders to live as long as possible in a way that makes them happy, obviously I want people to live happily, that’s my family motto “peace, love & happiness”, just ask the kids.
