Keys are one of my favorite things.

I used to collect misplaced keys when I was younger, putting them on big rings like a janitor. I’d jingle them around and drive my parents NUTS. Now I’m a little too old for that (though I do still have a pretty full keychain), I have directed my key obsession toward jewelry instead.

Ok, I made that up. There’s no such thing as a “Turkey Baster Hydration System” (just in case you needed clarification). At least, there wasn’t such a thing. I figured, since the weather is getting colder by the day and we are heading into cold and flu season, this was the perfect time to share my tale of resourcefulness when battling questionable toddler hydration. Hey, it might help! And if not? You’ll get a good laugh at the first-time mom.

Welcome to Jess T.’s Tech Tuesday, where all your geek are belong to us!

Shopping for geeks is hard.

They like things that you don’t understand, they talk funny and they have a faint scent of Mt. Dew about them. Lucky for you, I am a geek (and by default, my kids are geeks) – and I am here to help you shop for the geek in your life!
