Imagination is slipping away from our children as they grow up in a world filled with screens! Take a stand for your child’s right to their imagination while they are young enough to enjoy it. Time slips by too fast. Don’t you wish you could be young and free again?

Do you have a new baby in your life? Perhaps a new grandbaby? Maybe your best friend just had a bundle of joy join their family. I have books tailored to the tiniest of tots, completely dedicated to their learning and exploration of this great big world! Check out this selection! And it doesn’t stop there. Give the gift of imagination. It is NEVER too early to start to read to a child!

We all like to take our kids to the playground and let them have at it. It’s good for them because it spends all that energy. And it’s a somewhat relaxing time for us because we really can just sit there and rest while they tackle the jungle gym.

Sometimes the mind wanders; sometimes we’re catching up on reading.

You get that “start” when you have to turn your head to find them again. They’ve moved from the jungle gym to the swing set or the monkey bars. Now you can rest easy again.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could hear a “beep” when they’ve gone out of your comfort range?

The “electronic child leash” lets you know if your child roams further that you’re comfortable with. If the swing set is within range, no worries. But if they head off to the see saw, you know you have to move closer. The child guard monitor lets you know when that happens.

How the Child Guard Works

Worn by the child, the cartoon animal-shaped transmitter sends a constant signal to the receiver, which is held by the adult. The child monitor signal is adjustable – from a distance of 6 to 30 feet, so when the child goes beyond the set distance, the adult’s receiver starts to beep, letting them know that the child is starting to wander off.

Frequencies adjust themselves automatically to alert the proper receiver if more than one adult is in the same area using the Child Guard monitoring system.

The Cutting Edge of new microchips produced by SMT® technology, also referred to as the IC unit, is wafer thin and performs with superb accuracy and is incredibly reliable. The IC unit is nicely hidden in a small plastic animal (looks like a toy) and can be concealed very easily under a shirt or jacket if desired.

  • Simple and easy to use compact wireless design.
  • Child friendly design – Strategically hidden in a plastic toy looking transmitter.
  • Has a rotating dial that you can adjust anywhere between 6 and 30 feet.
  • Transmitter can be attached by buckle, to clothes, or worn as a necklace.
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
  • Lithium batteries included.
  • Easy to read instructions.
  • 5% of all customer sales are donated to a new and featured charity every month.

Salsa Fresco

A thirty minute drive from Pecos, is the tiny town of Coyanosa. There’s not much there, but if you’ve ever heard of the Famous Pecos Cantaloupes, that’s where they come from! There used to be just a road-side stand, but now they have a big brick Farmers Market. Several varieties of watermelons, melons, onions, peppers, tomatoes, squash, and even honey are available. You better hurry if you want Okra, because it goes fast! We bought a watermelon, an Israel Melon, a bag of Red Onions, a bag of tomatoes, a bag of Long Green Chili, a bag of jalapenos, and two cantaloupes. We’ve been eating fresh salsa all day 🙂
