I have read that tea tree oil is good for disinfecting. My son has been sick all winter and I want to wipe down all the cabinets/tables with something extra strong to get rid of all the germs. Right now, I use a vinegar and water solution. Can I just add a few drops of tea tree oil to that? Or should I just use water and tea tree oil by itself with no vinegar in it? Thanks!

I haven't read all the replies, but I have really bad allergies and also wanted a dog that would be good with the kids. We rescued a Cockapoo (cocker spaniel, poodle mix) about 5 months ago and she has been awesome! She is so good with the kids and the house and I have had no issues with allergies. I bury my face in her fur all the time and it still doesn't bother me. She is an adult dog so I am not sure how a cockapoo puppy would be.

One way I do this is that before the trip, I tell each child they get $25 to spend on whatever they want. When it's gone, it's gone. This...
In case you are looking to buy for next year..... I just got back from Carson's Dept Store (also Bon-Ton, Bergners, Younkers, Herbergers and Elder Beerman depending on where you live) and they have all winter coats on sale 50% off already marked down prices. I got a Columbia coat and bib set for my DD for $52.49 that was originally $140. I also got DS a Columbia coat for $37.49, originally $90. Yeah - we are set for next year! Just need boots and I will wait til...
We are a family of 3 - one adult and 2 kids. The only thing I re-wear are PJ's, sweaters and jeans (2x). I work outside the home so I have work clothes every day that have to get washed. We also use rags/cloth instead of paper towels so we have a lot of those. We do at most 4 loads a week. I don't wash towels every day. I hang them up as soon as we use them and we keep using them as long as they smell good. So 2-3 towels last us at least a week, maybe more. I...

But you and DH can do it. However, it isn't a park hopper and I think you can get a better deal by buying a 5 day park hopper pass.

You can try this, but keep in mind that the other 8 will definitely talk about it. There is really no way to keep them quiet about the party - it is too exciting for young kids.
I would go!
I'm not that experienced of a dog owner so someone may have more answers, but we did rescue a dog about 4 months ago. She came with a collar and a leash. I did buy her a nicer leash and collar but it wouldn't have been absolutely necessary if we were just trying her out. For her bed, I made a bed with an old feather bed, towel, and a feather blanket - all just piled up. She never sleeps on it though because she sleeps in the kids room - either on the carpet or on the...
