Organized on the go

May 22, 2008

Savvy Mom reviewed this Car Bag by Wisey.  This product has got to be the easiest way ever to organize your car.  A trip to the supermarket, no sweat! A trip to Grandma and Grandpa…. not a prob! With this car organizer you will have everything you need for a long or short trip.

This is what Savvy Mom has to say about the Car bag by Wisey:

You know we are a bit obsessed about car organization at Savvy Mom so we were embarrassingly excited about a new option for organizing our locker/car/playpen. The Wisey Car Bag ($29.95) looks good, makes you feel good and might even brighten up the inside of your tired old ride. Our favourite part? You can rip off some of the compartments to take them inside (like the diaper and wipes section or the one where you have the crayons that might come in handy at the resto) and they just snap right back into place when you are done.  Ingeniously designed with the driver in mind, it hangs in the front passenger seat for handy access while driving and then easily turns around when the passenger seat is occupied.

The Perfect Daddy Diaper Bag for Father’s Day

May 17, 2008

Mother’s day has come and gone (until next year when we once again officially celebrate Moms everywhere).  Father’s day is quickly creeping up on us.  Hmmmm, the perfect gift…what shall we get dear old dad?

How about the perfect Daddy diaper bag.  Now everytime Dad takes his little one for an outing he will be comfortable knowing that everything he needs has been packed and ready to go in his own diaper bag.  Mom has one, why not Dad?

Pacey the Therapy Dog

May 15, 2008

Ahhhhh, therapy dog day, don’t you love it.  Every day I am up at 5:30 a.m. (yes a.m. as in morning) and off to the gym I go before starting my work day.  Thursdays I get to sleep in until 7:30 ……the sweet sleep of an extra two hours.  I love thursdays…sleep, therapy dog day….and the sun is shining!

Pacey gets so excited on thursdays.  Poor puppy ( 8 year old puppy), her ears flare up, she gets itchy all over and she can’t find a comfortable spot.  Sometimes I can’t figure out if she is excited or anxious.

We drove over to the public school which has the Autistic class that we visit. Pacey jumped out of the car and dragged me into the office to sign in then ran to the classroom.  We had a great visit.  The children were ready and waiting.  Her best friend (we will call him Freddy) was waiting to walk her.  He is non-verbal but signed that he was ready. Throughout the whole visit he does not take his eyes off of her.  Freddy is going to another school next year and I am concerned that no amount of preparation will succeed in preparing him for no more Pacey.

One little boy is always fascinated by her tail.  He is always trying to catch it.  Her tail is constantly wagging when we are there and he has never succeeded in actually catching it.  Today he succeeded!!!!!  Hoots and hollers…..poor Pacey, just stood there not able to move until we succeeded in releasing his grip from her.

At the end of the visit she was extended the invitation of attending graduation next month.  The teacher would like to incorporate in graduation the highlights of the year and Pacey is one of them!  The children will be in the library and they would like Freddy to walk her in.  She will then sit next to him amongst the class for the entire time….let’s just hope she can sit still for that long!  Nice to know she has contributed some good in someones life no matter how small.

Peek a Boo

May 13, 2008

Travelling with baby and/or toddler can be quite a feat!

Check list:

  1. diaper bag full of diapers, baby wipes, bottle, snack, pacifier, teething ring, etc
  2. hat and sweater
  3. blankie or doudou
  4. car seat cover
  5. car seat in place
  6. don’t forget BABY!!!

Hopefully I didn’t forget anything.  So now you have made a few trips to arrange all the baggage and supplies neatly and in place.  While driving you don’t want to have to feel around for anything.  Baby is in the car seat and away you go.

Every now and then you adjust your rear view mirror to see that the baby is happy and comfortable…by now your neck is hurting from turning around and the rear view mirror is just about ready to fall off from constant adjustments.

Petiteposh can help with the neck problem and the rear view mirror!  It is called the “See me smile, bearview mirror.”  Just put it on the passenger seat facing the baby and facing the rear view mirror.  Everytime you want to check up on the baby you can just glance in the rear view mirror and see the smile on your little ones face.

Creating a Creation

May 6, 2008

I have been “itching” to do something creative for a few years now.  When I was in high school I would sew.  I loved to sew!  Those were the days when girls had to wear dresses to school.  I remember that eventually, on the last friday of the month , we were allowed to wear whatever we wanted, dress, jeans, pants, sweatshirts.  As long as it was clean and neat you could wear pretty much whatever you wanted.

My sewing days are over, I went on to crocheting.  I crocheted beautiful table clothes, doilies etc.  After my crocheting days I was too busy with my kids and could barely find time to just breath and be by myself let alone create something.

Kids are now grown, I am going to be (very shortly ) a grandmother (can’t wait) and am itching to do something creative.  I wanted to paint the bedroom, but messy painter that I am my husband nixed that idea in the bud.  I have been toying with the idea of aprons for children.  Masculine aprons for boy and frilly for girls…..hmmmmmm, is there a market out there?
