Zoo Laughs

We went to the zoo again this past week.  Since I probably take a hundred photos each time we go, I can usually capture some funny moments.  Here are five of them. 5. I took a break and sat down at a picnic table while Hobbs got us refills, and Tootsie Roll just started happily banging on the table. 4. It's always so funny and adorable to watch the kids play with the goats in the new "Wild Encounters" area.  Cupcakes went up to each and every goat this time, even if they were surrounded by … [Read more...]

I Love These Kidgets Diapers!

I'm happy to bring you this sponsored post for Kidgets diapers today because I'm a mom with a little baby.  I'm a huge fan of good diapers that are a great value for the money I spend.  These diapers meet all my criteria to trust them on my baby's bottom. When considering the purpose of diapers, WHY would we spend more than is absolutely necessary?  Kidgets diapers are wonderful: they don't leak, they fit well, they don't harm Baby's sensitive skin, they're budget-friendly, and ... they're … [Read more...]

Real Talk: Teething

I am so tired. Tootsie Roll is getting a whole bunch of teeth including two top molars all at once.  He's normally a great sleeper but he's in so much pain.  I have little to no problem giving him medicine, which helps, but I still sit up with him while we wait for it to kick in. During that time, I usually let him gnaw on a celery which makes his gums feel a little better, but lately he's in so much pain that he won't even try to chew on it. So we watch Netflix together and he lays on … [Read more...]

Cat in the Hat, Bicycle Pro and other Saturday Laughs

5. "Mommy, I'm such a good mom.  I'm such a good mom.  I'm so nice.  And I don't take anybody's kids."  Well that's good! 4. You know how kids "cook" foods in their play kitchens and give them to you?  Well, the other day, I think I told her I would play with her as soon as I was finished with my Swagbucks Survey, but she didn't like that: "Mommy I burned your cake 'cause you're not playing with me."  Geez! 3. We're lucky to have a big front window that almost goes floor to ceiling in our … [Read more...]
