I Totally Have a Grown Up Phone

So, the last few months have been hard for me in all ways but one.  You see, my life has been a whirlwind and I can’t seem to get my hands around anything.  Except, that is, my grown-up phone.  Since July I have had a phone that is all mine.  It is a luxury, and one I don’t know how I will live without.  (Talk about a first world problem!) My iPhone is loaded with enough kids’ apps to sink a big […]

Baby Kanga One Size Cloth Diaper Review

Baby Kanga one size diapers have a unique pocket opening – and it is a great idea. The pocket is located on the outside of the diaper. It has a zippered closure, so there is no chance of a messy diaper interfering with removing the insert. I held off trying these for a long time since the pictures I saw online weren’t very clear about the zipper. I was not sure how this idea would work or if it was such a […]

Graco My Ride 65 Review

Graco My Ride 65 Review

I have been contemplating how to write this Graco review for about a week now. Let me start by saying I am a HUGE Graco Baby fan. Always have been, because they have amazing customer service anytime I have had to call or have had a problem (which are few). They have always been willing to go above and beyond to do whatever needed to be done to fix the problem. I have had swings, play yards, bouncers, Strollers, and highchairs from […]

[OVER] Mother Ease Cloth Diaper Review & Giveaway

I recently purchased my first Mother-ease Cloth Diaper for review.  Mother-ease is a Canadian based company that has been around since 1991. My initial inspection concluded that the size “large” is going to last us a while. The sizes run a little big, but I am not complaining!  I am looking forward to using this diaper for a long time to come. The diaper is more of a traditional (aka old school) design. It is very simplistic, and also very easy to use. For my […]

Curious Kids (My Turkeys) vs. Paper Shredder

Just when you think your kids are old enough to know better, they go a pull a stunt like this to prove that they will continuously attempt to drive you batshit crazy for the rest of your life.   My apologies for the poor quality, but you get the idea of what occurred here. Here’s the story: So yesterday, we were out running around and stopped by Staples to look at some software.  I’ve been looking at so much software online that […]

My personal struggle with Postpartum Anxiety and Self Doubt

Nothing Prepared Me For This!

One Year Last week marked the one-year anniversary of bringing our dear daughter home from the hospital. After three long weeks in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU), we were so excited to bring our brand new baby home. This moment was the culmination of many years and many long nights waiting for a birth mother to pick our profile. Finally, after so much waiting we wheeled out little one out of the hospital, strapped her securely into the car seat, and […]

My Ambitious Endeavor To Make Do It Yourself Cloth Wipes

Do It Yourself Cloth Wipes After deciding that I loved using cloth wipes, I got ambitious and decided that I wanted to make my own cloth wipes. [ Do It Yourself Cloth ] This was a perfect thing. I had purchased a lovely Singer sewing machine shortly after I got married – almost four years ago – but I had never really put the device to good use. I think the dear husband was beginning to regret that he had ever let me buy it! […]

BumGenius Diaper Sprayer Leaking? This Might Fix It!

Is Your BumGenius Diaper Sprayer Leaking? Those of you who follow my blog know that my BumGenius diaper sprayer [Link To Product] is possibly my favorite cloth diapering accessory. To be honest, I cannot imagine using cloth diapers without it. I try to have as little contact with soiling as possible, so the dunk and swish method holds no appeal for me. Malfunctioning When my diaper sprayer began malfunctioning a few weeks ago, I was near devastated. At first, the problem was minor; the […]
