Purchasing stuff for your kids can be addictive. Especially babies. Before you know it you have 47 onesies, 56 blankets, 4 mobiles, and more wall decals than you have walls. I’m not that bad but I could be if I didn’t check myself and my account at the register/check out screen. I can’t lie though, I was getting a little out of hand when I was pregnant and on bed rest. I had nothing else to do so I blogged and shopped all day long. Check out these 7 questions to ask yourself before purchasing and save yourself come coins and disagreements with Hubby.
You see protein bars everywhere these days. Literally every store sells them. I’ve tried them and I’m sure you have too; but did you like them? I found some for I liked and purchased for a while. They didn’t taste too bad and I thought I was doing the right thing by having a protein bar for an afternoon snack. When I began to look more into the ingredients I was consuming I stopped buying them as much.
I did a little searching for vegan protein bars and I found a few that weren’t very palatable. After that I just gave up. Fast forward to the day Moms Meet emailed me and said “hey, wanna try these refrigerated protein bars?”. I thought to myself if the bars have to be refrigerated they must be natural which means they must be healthy. I agreed and I’m hooked!
Yup, Camille will be 2 on the 20th. Where has the time gone? I know every parent must feel the same way. Camille is doing very good! She transitioned to daycare really well. Her new sleeping arrangement went well and she’s learning at such a fast pace.
Day Care – This was the biggest transition for Camille this year. She had been staying with her grandparents during the day since she was 7 weeks old. She was eager to be with other kids and burn off some energy. The center we chose is amazing. I love the staff, curriculum, safety, everything about it. I have no regrets and nothing bad to say.
You ever wonder why your kids only want to eat the same five meals? Well yes, because your kid is a picky eater but are you a picky eating paretn? Hmmm…Let’s discuss for a moment.
I know plenty of parents have an expansive palate and their kids just don’t because toddlers are so toddlerish. But let’s look at a different angle. My mom only eats about four vegetables so growing up my brother and I ate four vegetables and they were always prepared the exact same way. When I was 14 I worked in a soul food restaurant and began eating all kinds of stuff. My mom would be so grossed out. I would come home with meatloaf, stewed tomatoes, bread pudding, rice pudding, squash, spinach and plenty more. She would never touch my food.
With more and more food documentaries hitting our TV screens, most people are looking to purchase more organic and natural foods. But what about our skin care and oral care products? Did you forget those? I know I did for a while. A few years ago I was in Whole Foods after work for groceries and still needed to make a Target run for toothpaste. I was tired and decided to go with whatever Whole Foods had to offer. I strolled the aisle and found an Himalaya Bontanique Herbal Toothpaste. The flavor was pomegranate & neem and the price was right so I went with it.
