Tricks of the parenting trade

Recently I was hanging out with my friend/coworker, Michelle and her daughter at one of her good friends, Molly's house. It was just three moms sitting around talking while the three kiddos played. I had a great time and I think I made a new friend in the processes.
We were talking about our many trips to the beach that we had each individually taken and found that we all had in common that we despise the sand. So I shared my secret. Well it was given to me by another mother of three little kiddos, so it is not my original idea. When I told my secret Molly suggested that I blog that secret. What a great blogging idea. Molly you should totally start a blog, you already think like a blogger.

So here it is my beach/sand trick: When you go to the beach the sand sticks to your skin. If you have small children you know the sand gets EVERYWHERE, places you never even imagined. Well baby powder acts as a sort of repellent. If you sprinkle and rub baby powder over the skin the sand will brush right off. No lie. I did not believe it when I first heard it either. But I gave it a whirl, I even use this stuff on myself. I will never go to the beach without baby powder ever.

There is my trick of the parenting trade. I am thinking about making this a bi-weekly post (I know a lot of bloggers do a weekly one, like wordless Wednesday, but hey I am a working mom and don't have a lot of time to blog now that I am back to work). Let me know what you think.
