So my oldest son just started Kindergarten! This is an exciting time for us. Not only does he get to be a big kid and learn all kinds of new things like reading, but he gets to take a lunch with him! I am pretty sure he is more excited about bringing a lunch and playing with his friends than he is about reading, but that’s kind of expected with a five year old. Wait… I think that sounds fun to any age! Luckily his school has a wonderful lunch menu but we still need to provide him with snacks and we won’t be buying lunch every day either. It is so important to provide healthy snacks for your children. Not only is it giving them the nutrition they need but it also gives them the energy they need to help focus at school and play with their friends.
I have a lot of things going on at any given time. My desktop, unfortunately, isn’t always organized properly. I do like to keep icons and folders within view so that I remember things. This means that I needed an easier way to keep my desktop organized and I have just the solution.
Let’s face it, you probably use “google” a few times a day (more if you’re like me). I love looking up things on the internet, especially before I buy. However, I just can’t keep quiet about some of the weirdness that comes in from our search results… I will share with you some of the down right STRANGE things people search for to find us. Also, I will let you know a few of the more popular search results that lead you here.
This post should be named “This one is strictly for the pleasure of those girls who didn’t like me in high school”
Typically I am not a person that gets overly excited about baby bowls. Sure some of them are cool, but a bowl is just a bowl right? Well all that changed the minute I saw the Baby Dipper. This bowl actually had me intrigued. Could this bowl actually help me out during dinner time? Could this really help my son learn to self-feed with a utensil?
The well-known trick of turning feeding spoons into “planes, trains and automobiles” just got a whole lot easier. oogaa makes meal times fun for babies and little children. Their adorable, safe-to-use products will become a favorite at meal times. We are very impressed by oogaa and their quest to use the safest, most environmentally stable materials. Instead of fussing with my child over dinner time, she now debates over which oogaa spoon she can use. Will it be the train or the airplane?
Not only am I the type to pick organic beauty products whenever I can, but my daughter has sensitive skin. And that means I have to be careful about the ingredients in the products I buy too. The poor girl has eczema. I have never had it, so I wasn’t very familiar with that particular skin condition. I had to look around for bath and skin care products that fit my desire to be friendly to the earth, and fit may daughters skin care needs.
It’s no wonder that a husband to a magnificent “modern day mom” would have to declare his own awesomeness every now and then, especially when his wife’s awesomeness is a given. Being a caveman when it comes to the Internet and an absolute Neanderthal when it comes to blogging there are only a few ways I can puff out my chest, beat on my wiry hairs and declare, “me man, look at my… um….man stuff”. Aside from occasionally coming home on crutches, covered head to toe in bruises from a long standing “extreme sports” obsession, walking in the door slathered in grease from DIY car repair, and a thumping headache from showing my wife how we used to “shoot tequila” in my early 20s, the least painful and probably most tolerable of these “declarations of man power” is my hot sauce obsession.
Welcome to Jess T.’s Tech Tuesday, where all your geek are belong to us!
There’s no doubt about it – kids love tech items. They see adults touching them, staring at them, and poking them all day – so they MUST be important and awesome! At Modern Day Moms, our kids cannot keep their hands off of our phones, iPods and tablets. We get the funniest Beluga messages when our kids hijack our business meetings. Once, we had quite the scare when one of our editors was almost photographed in the shower by a rogue toddler with a smartphone!
