Hair color

With dd hair, we found the Wal-Mart brand worked even better than Kool Aid. The most fun was making a paint consistency and using many colors for several girls for a sleepover.

Flu shot

If you can take ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), taking a couple an hour or two before the flu shot might help control the histamine response that causes the lump. It has worked for me for several years,...
