Shout-Out Saturday

Happy Father’s Day!

No spoiler alerts here, folks…but let’s just say if your big guy loves techie things, coffee, or watching movies, you might want to come back to the blog tomorrow. No, really–you want to come back tomorrow.

Cool Kid Spotlight:

Here’s a shout-out to Olivia Bouler, a fifth-grader in Long Island, New York, who raised more than $70,000 to help birds affected by the Gulf oil spill.

News to Us:

We’ve heard a lot recently about the benefits of the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D (among other things, it helps to strengthen bones). Now the FDA is asking that parents pay special attention to not give too much to their children. Some supplements are sold with droppers that allow overdosing–which can cause nausea, vomiting, and kidney damage. Read more here.

Deal of the Week:

Through June 27, Tropical Smoothie is raising funds to send 200 families to Camp Sunshine, a retreat in Casco, Maine for kids with life-threatening illnesses. Help out by visiting a smoothie shop–and print out the coupon below to score $1 off your purchase.

Tweet of the Week:

@KaitCHK: There is a bird in our fireplace. None of my SAHM training prepared me for this. I quit.
