Have You Considered Reusable Baby Food Pouches?
Hey, Y’all, today I’m going to show you one of my new favorite baby food items. It’s the WeeSprout Double Zipper Reusable Food Pouch. Specifically, I’m going to be reviewing the 3.4 fl oz version.
I’ve been using these reusable baby food pouches for a few weeks now and absolutely love them. I’ve used them every day and they make life so much easier.
We use the squeeze pouches for both homemade baby food and store-bought baby food. As long as it can be sucked through the small opening it can be used.

How Secure Is A Master Lock Padlock?
If you’re using a padlock to secure anything of value, please reconsider. I’ve always considered a Master Lock padlock to be relatively secure but this changed the way I look at them forever.
I realize that they can be picked pretty easily, but the average crook probably doesn’t have great lock picking skills. What I wasn’t prepared for is how quickly they can be cut with an angle grinder.
I Lost The Padlock Key
After losing the key to a padlock that was “securing” a 20-foot BigTex trailer, I had two options: Either bust out some old lock picking skills or try to grind the padlock off.
Once I gave up on the lockpicking endeavor, I pulled out my $60 angle grinder. To my surprise, it took less than 30 seconds to remove the padlock.
To give you a little more perspective, I was cutting it with my left hand while filming with my right (dominant) hand. With a little practice, I could probably get it down to 10 seconds flat.
What’s The Best Way To Secure A Trailer?
All of this to say, If you are using a padlock to secure anything of value, please look for a better alternative. What is that better locking alternative? I’m really not sure.
Let me know in the comments section what your favorite way to secure a trailer is.

The Hospital? What?
If you saw our last video (Poor Little Dude), you know that our middle child (we call him Dude) was hospitalized due to pneumonia which aggravated his asthma. The bad news is that we do this once or twice every year. The good news is that we are now home and he is doing much better and breathing well.
Those of you with asthmatic children totally know the terror of knowing your child can’t breathe. We love natural, homemade, and alternative health practices but I’m so glad for modern medicine when it comes to keeping his lungs open during an asthma attack.
What Is A Comfrey Poultice? Simply put, a comfrey poultice is moist ground up comfrey (usually leaves but sometimes root as well) applied to a wound and covered with a cloth. This natural healing method has been used for a very long time and is not limited to comfrey. For thousands of years, comfrey has been […]
