It always amazes me when I meet moms who are not only raising kids, but are also starting their own businesses. Especially when they’re moms who see a need that’s not being met and decide to solve the problem. I’ve introduced the moms behind sugarSNAP and Fourth Love, and today I introduce Pazit of LulyBoo. I hope you find her as inspiring — and inspired — as I do.
The Hundred Acre Wood is calling — both you and your little one. The Winnie the Pooh Wonder and Wander App (which is free to download and was recently updated) is playful fun for those grabby little hands that can’t seem to stay away from your iPhone or iPad. While you can interact with the setting — making the sun rise and set, ruffling the leaves, etc. — I think the games are what budding toddlers will love most.
Here’s a sneak peak into the fun…
My baby girl, “Pink”, turns two on Friday. Two! Of course birthdays are full of celebration and anticipation, but I can’t help also reflecting on the two years that seemed to go by in a flash. Being that organization isn’t my strong suit, I haven’t done a baby book yet. Yet. (That’s what my blog is for, right?) I found this really sweet Winnie the Pooh Memory book right here on Disney Baby, and it got me thinking. Here’s what I would have written. And will. Someday.
If you were to simply look at my mom, you probably wouldn’t think she seems all that tough. Chances are she’s wearing bright colors, sparkling jewelry, fresh lipstick, and a beautiful smile. But I’ll let you in on a little secret — beneath her feminine charms lies one strong woman.
It’s a quiet strength, which I believe to be her greatest gift. (Goodness knows she has many.) Her strength is the kind that builds people up rather than tearing them down. It’s the kind that inspires those around her to be more like themselves rather than more like her. It’s a kind that speaks of faith, hope, and love without a single word.
Four years ago, my husband gave me a huge surprise. On Mother’s Day Eve, he told me to pack a bag — that he was sending me to a nearby hotel for the night. All. By. Myself. At first I was a bit taken aback. Sure, his parents were visiting and would be able to help take care of our then 3-year old and 6-month old, but what if they needed their mom? He pointed out that they did need their mom. And their mom really, desperately needed a solid night’s sleep (which I hadn’t had in about 6 months thanks to a very sick, needy baby). Since I can’t nurse, he could handle feeding the baby for a night, while I got a quick escape. They’d see me bright and not too-too early in the morning for breakfast.
