I don’t know about you, but my children are always hungry.
The four-year-old even came up to me the other day, rubbing her apparently pitifully empty stomach a mere 20 minutes after I had finished cleaning up dinner and moaned, “Mom, why am I always hungry?”
And as much as my children would probably prefer it, I’m not about to let them sit at home and eat snacks all day – in fact, once in a while I even force them to (gasp!) get out of the house for some summer activities.
Which, of course, means packing some healthy snacks along for the ride — and that’s why I was so excited to try the new good2grow Organic Juice bottles that my kids are seriously in love with.
Over on my personal blog, I had the good fortune of being able to participate in a promotional campaign for the New Huggies Snug `n Dry Diapers and Natural Care Plus Wipes, both of which are now available at Costco.
And because diapers are pretty much my life right now, and will probably be so for the next, oh say, two or three years, I couldn’t help but share the deal that they are giving away right now:
FREE Huggies diapers and wipes!
Want to know what my biggest fear about having another baby is?
The fact that in a few short weeks, I will be responsible for getting four children out of the house.
Let’s face it: the moment you become a mother, getting out of the house at a decent time with everyone looking decently put together is one of life’s biggest challenges. And if one baby can add an hour to your getting-out-of-the-house routine, can you imagine what four will do?
Before the madness begins, let’s brush up on some easy tips to getting out of the house faster with baby, shall we?
When I first visited my husband’s grandmother, she plopped me down at the kitchen table and introduced me to the most delicious jam I had ever tasted in my life.
Fresh, vibrant strawberry jam atop of a warm and yeasty roll and I knew that my taste buds would never be the same.
It took me to go through college, marriage, and the birth of my first daughter, but one rainy afternoon I finally made my way back to her kitchen, where she taught me the secret to making the world’s most delicious jam.
And I’ve never missed a year making it since.
Six weeks to go, zero names on our baby girl name list.
I keep holding on that once she makes her grand debut (please tell me her grand debut will be as soon as it’s healthy?), a name will just suddenly appear to us and be perfect.
But until then, I’ll be constantly scouring the Internet, searching for that perfect name that’s not too unique but just unique enough for my little one.
From Nameberry.com, here are some of the most unique (and popular) baby names of the year so far:
