Comments Off on Product Review: Step 2’s Sand and Water Table

When I decided to buy an outdoor activity table for Kate, I did lots of research. I knew that she LOVED playing in the sand, but didn’t want to necessarily build a ‘real’ sand box in our back yard. So, I went to Amazon.com (of course) and started reading reviews on all the different brands of sand and water activity tables out there. Many of the brand names that I normally would have trusted to make a good quality table got bad reviews and so I wound up purchasing the “Naturally Playful Sand and Water Activity Center” by Step 2 and I’ve never regretted it!

Here’s the product description from Step 2…

This adorable Sand and Water Activity Center features wood crafted styling and nature’s colors that blend with traditional landscapes in residential outdoor living areas. It’s divided into two separate sides – one for water, the other for sand. Continue reading…

Mothers Minder Sling Diaper Bag
I finally did it! After using the same diaper bag since Kate was born 4 and a half years ago, I finally got a new bag!! (Can you tell that I’m excited?)

Granted, it’s not my dream bag (I’m still in love with the whole DadGear line of bags), but it’s still a great bag, especially for the sale price of only $16.83 on Amazon!

Umbrella Strollers Rock!

Umbrella Stroller from Wal-Mart
Right before our trip to LA, the Hoover Dam, and the Grand Canyon, my mom and I bought this umbrella stroller at Wal-Mart. When you’re trying to pack 4 adults and 3 kids into a minivan along with 2 weeks worth of all their various and sundry stuff, you don’t exactly have room to bring the nice, big double stroller.

Let’s just say that I enjoyed that vacation experience of whipping out the stroller and putting Karis in it in 10 seconds flat so much that I decided to buy myself an umbrella stroller to throw in the back of my car for quick jaunts to the library and such.

So, last week when I was at Wal-Mart I stopped in the baby section to see what they had in stock. They had the same exact stroller that my mom had bought just a month ago, but I found one I liked little better. The one I wound up buying had metal legs and a really cool primary color design.

And the best part??

I only spent ten dollars and 52 cents!!

What could be better?

And I’ve already used it several times and have LOVED how easy it is to get out, use and put back in the car without throwing my back out!!

Don’t get me wrong. I still love my bigger strollers for longer walks and strolling the mall and anything else that would need the diaper bag and other gear to come along. But for those short little adventures out with baby, I’ll take my $10.52 Wal-Mart umbrella stroller any day of the week!!

Karis’ BobbyAll three of my kiddos have been very attached to their pacifiers (Karis still IS). So, when it came time to wean them, I was definitely looking for tips on how to do it! Here’s a couple of ideas that I’ve come across… Continue reading…

Holy cow!! Great use of visuals to help explain the proposed budget cuts and their actual impact on the overall budget.

You’ll never fold tshirts the same way again!

If you ever wanted to hear someone put a mommy’s day into a song, try this one! (I guarantee you’ll laugh your butt off.)

A little on the political side, but interesting nonetheless…
