You know what time of year it is. It's that time when everyone around us is getting sick. My oldest daughter called from Minnesota saying she couldn't talk and she felt terrible. I don't think it's possible, but a couple of days later, both of my boys were complaining about not feeling well. I suppose siblings can have that crazy bond that stretches across states so they end up feeling sick at the same time.
Well, my hubby decided to take my youngest's temperature while I wasn't looking, and when I came downstairs I saw him sitting there with this old, digital thermometer sticking out of my mouth. By my reaction, you'd have thought my son had grown a second head.
I asked Fred, "what is that sticking out of his mouth?!" Another example how Fred and I are blending our homes, and how we parent differently. I honestly can't even tell you the last time my kids had their temperature taken by mouth. To me, even though we're family, it's still so gross and unsanitary. HA! I've come a long way in my thinking since my girls were little.
I was sent an Exergen Thermometer to review, and it couldn't have come at a better time. Actually, this isn't my first rodeo with the Exergen. I had one for years when my boys were really little. Unfortunately, it didn't make the move to Maryland very well. So, when I had the opportunity to try out this updated one, I was happy to!
Now, the feature I love about the new one is that it has a light that allows it to glow orange. Bonus there is that at night, you don't have to turn the light on in a room to read the temperature! The double bonus is, you can also put it into a silent mode. It won't beep and flash when it's done scanning. Pretty nifty if you've got your sick kiddo in bed with you and don't want to wake up your spouse, too.
I don't know if you're anything like me, but I'm terrible at remembering what someone's temperature was the time before. And no, I never write it down. I'm just not that responsible. lol The Exergen (which is made in the USA) has 8 Temperature Memory.
We all know it's just a matter of time before someone gets the first cold of the season! Be sure to have this Exergen thermometer in your medicine cabinet.
Now, you see how cool this thermometer is! Now you have the chance to enter the Exergen Covers You Sweepstakes through 1/1/16 at 11:59pm ET!
Has anyone in your family gotten sick yet this fall?
