I'm a new SAHM to my baby boy whom I'm absolutely in love with! He was a blessing to my husband and I after nearly a decade of struggling with infertility and miscarriage.
I hope to share with my son many of the things I most enjoy in life, like traveling, reading, Baking, and caring for wildlife and the environment.
I mean, come on ladies....who doesn't want a handsome man who is well traveled, well read, can bake you a luscious dessert, AND loves animals? LOL!
When I'm not engaged in one of my aforementioned hobbies, you may find me trying to learn a new Hindi word or two from my Indian mother in law, who now lives with us. Or trying a new eye makeup tutorial I've seen (what red blooded gal doesn't enjoy makeup?!) Or jotting down my latest story idea in one of my many journals. Or going to my favorite beach town with my nieces or a close friend.
Of course, I still help my husband with the businesses behind the scenes. I handle much of the communication, and some ordering, with several of our vendors. I also maintain the relationships with employees, diffusing interpersonal disagreements, and addressing employee concerns. The most fun thing is celebrating their birthdays and achievements, organizing store events with the public, but especially putting together our annual Christmas party for one of our stores! We even like to involve some of our favorite customers 💕
So...yeh! That's me.
I basically love everything by this brand that I have tried! I prefer when pitches are clear, but I have never encountered a problem with Plum Organics having mold, or anything creepy in their pouches. My son has liked them since he first started trying them as a 7 month old for days when we were on the go a lot. Now he occasionally will have one of the tots pouches for Disney days, or other days when we are out for several hours. I like to buy them at Publix where they are sometimes 10 for $10!
Not a huge fan. I feel much the same about these as I do about the cheese curl flavor that I also reviewed. BUT at least those Tate good. These really are not appetizing at all! My son doesn’t like them. He will eat REAL broccoli, but these just aren’t appealing. As with the other flavor, make sure you have these eaten within a day or two because they will go stale and create a choking hazard, even with the lid kept on.
These are ok. They really do taste just like a real junk food cheese curl. But- they are not our “go-to” snack because I don’t like the nutrition for them so much. Being organic doesn’t make something a health food. Also, these are meant to be eaten relatively quickly after opening. If you keep them for several days, even if you keep the lid sealed tightly on, they are going to go stale. That can create a choking hazard for little ones because they don’t crunch and dissolve, but can get stuck in the throat.
My son enjoys these. He is now almost 21 months, so he has less than before since he can eat such a variety of fresh food. But these have made an easy little convenience snack in the last, without giving him something sugary, or high in salt. I give him fresh fruit and veggie sticks daily, but these are a fun treat, and they are made with wholesome ingredients.
I really like this car seat! It allows me to keep my little one back facing for a longer, and safer, amount of time. However, he is just shy of 21 months, and it looks as if I’m going to have to turn him around soon even with this seat! I cannot extend it any further while keeping the safety ball in the right spot on the gauge on the side of the car seat. My son is 95th percentile for height for his age, so that’s something you should maybe take into consideration if your little one is on the taller side. I’m hoping to make it till at least his second birthday without having to turn him front facing as that is the whole reason I bought this (kinda expensive) car seat. Aside from the ability to extend the legs, and face back longer, it is also very sturdy, and has a great cushion for the head (like a side pillow that really keeps his head from knocking about.
They don’t irritate my boy’s skin, and they clean well. These are even great to polish wood furniture with, btw! LOL! I order the large refill packs off amazon about once a month. Great way to save a few dollars.
I love@that these absorb without swelling! They actually do keep everything in in the case of an accident in the water. And they do not get all puffy and swollen. Bonus points for the cute Nemo and Dory designs!
Best diaper I’ve found! I’ve used Huggies since my son was born. First the Little Swaddlers, and then the Little Movers. They don’t leak, they don’t bunch and make his clothes fit funky, they’re very soft, and even have cute designs. (Totally unimportant, but a fun bonus!) My son has never had a reaction to any of Huggies diapers there have been a couple of times when I was given 7th Generation diapers because I ran out (being away from the house) and they leaked pretty profusely. It’s worth noting here that I tend to change my son’s diaper pretty quickly once it’s wet. I’m a stay at home mom, so it’s not like he’s sitting in it for extended periods at a daycare where they may keep more of a changing schedule verses being able to change as needed. But even over night my son doesn’t have leaks with Huggies!
This product was not good for us because my son refused to take a pacifier. It’s such a good idea, in theory, though! I ended up using an oral thermometer, just under the arm. Remember to add one degree when you take it that way. An underarm temp of 99.5 is really 100.5 Just FYI!
