Tracking Medicine Doses

Believe it or not, I actually put into practice something that I saw on Pinterest. Although I may wish it wasn’t this one in particular, it has been VERY handy since our youngest is on a 30 day run of antibiotics and I have to remember to give them to him twice a day and also call the pharmacy to check on refills since they are dispersed in 10 day supplies.

The concept is so amazingly simple…but has truly been a HUGE help to my tired brain every day. I used a Sharpie to draw a quick grid on the side of the bottle for the days and times that our son needed a dose of his medication. Each time I give him the meds, I check off the dose.

With one quick look at the bottle, I am able to see if the medicine was given that day. A star next to another day reminds me to call the pharmacy to ensure they have the medication in stock for the upcoming refill.

It’s been working like a charm – and will definitely be used again when needed!

No Matter Who Wins…

Today the kids went to the polls with me and walked through the 2012 presidential election process. They took a sample ballot from both parties so we could talk about the different issues that we were voting for.

After our ballot was counted, there were stickers.

Tonight as the kids got ready for bed, Zachary’s prayer just made my heart smile – and is a good reminder for all of us:

“Dear God, help us remember that no matter who wins tonight, you are still in charge.”

Amen.
