Another VoxBox from Influenster - the Braun Forehead Thermometer

Full Disclosure: I received the new Braun Forehead Thermometer complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster...opinions are all my own, however.

I was *super* psyched to find that I had been chosen for my FIFTH VoxBox from Influenster, and even more excited to see that it was for the new Braun Forehead Thermometer.  The kids don't often run fevers, but I'm one of those thermometer fanatics who check every couple hours or so when they aren't feeling well.

Since the kids are tucked in bed fast asleep, I had to use different test subjects...namely Jake and I.  I easily swiped my own forehead and was pleasantly surprised to find that the display is large and easy to read - plus it is color coded to indicate a normal temp (green), a slightly elevated temp (yellow), or a full blown fever (red).  It may sound like a small detail, but anything helps when you are dealing with three wiggly kids.

By this point my husband was fast asleep next to me on the couch, so I decided he would be the "sleeping baby" test subject.  I easily swiped his forehead without bothering him...well, until he woke up to see me standing over him with what probably looked like some sort of weapon.

Anyway - thus far I am really liking the thermometer...

P.S.  Did I mention it comes with the batteries...?  Yeah.  Awesome sauce.
