Ever wonder how you tell if your toddler has had a good day? This is often a very good indicator.
Before the Relay for Life I bought a can of Coppertone's Continuous Spray sunscreen and I immediately fell in love. It was so easy to apply on myself and on the kids. I couldn't shut up about how it was the greatest thing ever invented. Then I ran out. In a week. When a bottle of regular sunscreen lasts me the entire summer that's a little hard to swallow. I don't our current budget is willing to support a $12 a week sunscreen habit.
Is there a Mom out there who isn't struggling with the laundry? Check out these laundry tips from my new favourite blog Tip Nut.
Blog I'm enjoying lately: Thoughts of a Smother Mother. For the record I'm with her on the romantic getaways. They're nice, but there comes a point when I'm just ready to be back home.
Monster Sale is going on at The Children's Place. We were there today so Abby could pick out some summer gear at excellent prices. Shorts, shirts and tees were working out to $5 ish a piece. And since she's been out of school for 5 minutes it seemed like the perfect time to pick up a backpack for next year. I will give her this, the kid has style and an eye for quality. This is definitely a better constructed backpack then the Strawberry Shortcake one that I picked out for her last year. The same one that the lining ripped within the first month. Also purchased, the matching lunch bag. Please stay tuned for pictures of her new summer hat and shades!
I love this twist on fingerpainting. I'm thinking it would look really great in my "office" whenever Mike gets around to finishing up the paint job he started in here.
