I’ve Said it Before…Corn Bags…Ahhhh!

Last night, as I was lying in bed with my corn bag over my face, I knew that I needed to remind you that these are WONDERFUL gifts.

WONDERFUL!

I know why parents like summer camps and why they look forward to school starting.

And we have yet to start kindergarten, but I think God gives you these moments so that you do not focus on the emotional aspects of children leaving the nest.

It was a day of young children with way too much energy and the day continued along those lines. A new bike for my oldest because he finally figured out how to work the pedals. My middle child still couldn’t figure it out so I told her we would practice on her brother’s bike and then I would know what bike to get her. A toddler that had no interest in his sibling’s new venture, only an interest in “heading out” on his own.

An afternoon of practicing bike riding and a middle child finally “getting it” led to two children switching bikes. Ya know how that goes with siblings! They did well but I already planned on getting two bikes so I knew what I needed to do.

Alone.

Exhausted from a “fun-filled day of three young kids with too much energy”, I ordered another bike online for evening pickup. It would be much easier to go after bedtime to get the bike than bring everyone back to the store the next day. I did not need a repeat of my morning.

When all were in bed I went on my mission. I picked myself up two iced coffees from McDonald’s, as long as I was out, and continued on for the bike. I probably would have enjoyed both of the iced coffees right then but one was actually to save for the morning.

By the time I got home, I was exhausted. The kind where your head hurts. I still had most of my evening chores to complete but I just couldn’t. I knew the best thing for me was to get to bed so I could handle whatever the next day would bring. But as I hopped into bed, my head hurt and I knew I would not be able to sleep.

Two words…

Corn bag.

I got up and heated one then headed back to bed. The second I put that corn bag on my face I knew I would be all right. Ahhhhh….

When I woke up at some point in the middle of the night, my head was so much better and I felt human again. Thank you corn bags, you have saved me for the last twenty years.

Here is a sampling of my corn bags. Different sizes for different needs…the little ones are great for kids. I keep them in the freezer and they are handy for bumps and bruises. I even heated them, ever so slightly (really – be careful!) when my newborns had gas-ey bellies and they couldn’t get comfortable. Just a tiny bit of warmth seemed to ease their little bodies as I held them.

    I love them! They do not have overpowering herb scents and they can be used hot or cold, and also just to keep the kids happy!
