These are a few of my favorite things...

This list has been rattling around in my head for months and every time I have a friend who has a baby I scratch my head and go glassy eyed for a few minutes of...what was that thing I wanted to be sure and get for everyone else that I loved so much when the kids were babies...
Okay so too many of my friends are having babies and my kids are getting farther and farther from the use of these wonderful products. So I put this out there as much as a reminder list for me as a list of things that you would me!

Diapees & Wipees
I still use mine all the time to carry extra panties and wipees. I swear my kids will be eighteen and I will still have wipees in the car...who knows they may need them more then than they do now

Baby 411
Toddler 411
Dr. Brown ~ The guru of all things pediatric. This woman has soothed my nerves in the office, over the phone and late at night with these amazing books. We had a pediatrician already chosen before Alex was born and after meeting Ari at a child birth class choosing her was Hero Husband's first veto of any of my choices. I confess I was wrong all along. She is a God Send!

Dr. Smith's Diaper Cream
You don't want to know how or why I ended up with a diaper rash once (yes when I was old enough to remember it) but it is enough said that I KNOW this product is worth its weight in gold

Allison's Posies
I stumbled across these in a local shop once and couldn't find them at any other shop ever. Thankfully they have an online store too. Precious, understated and flat on the head. Allison...where ever you are...Thanks

See Kai Run
We all know about my handbag "issues" I am not officially outing myself as having shoe "issues" too. I loved these shoes for both kiddos. So much so I wished I could get them for myself. Alas it was not to happen ~ forget the robeez pedipeds rock the house (although the new rubber sole robeez are pretty awesome too)

Gymboree Panties & Underwear
I don't know about you but I love nice undies. No scratchies, itchies, pokies...nothin'. When Alex was figuring out the whole potty thing he really wanted superman underwear. Too bad the waist was made of sandpaper. We quickly (thank goodness) found gymboree. They are kind of pricey sometimes on clothes etc (love the sale rack) but you can't beat their panties and undies. They even make cute little boy shorts and boxer briefs. Your kids butt will thank me - promise

Okay there it is. My list. I am sure as soon as I log off I will come up with more, but for now this will help me to remember. If you try one of the recommendations let me know I would love to hear your thoughts.


  1. Even though I am not as lucky as you are to have my Grace potty trained, I absolutely LOVE my Diapees & Wippees you got for me when the girls were both still so little. Ans YES, Pedi peds are just wonderful.

  2. Love it! Thanks for sharing. I am a pediped addict as well. We have an old, cold house with hardwoods and I adore having cute shoes to put on my kids indoors all winter.

  3. Awww. those tighty whities! Love it.

    I found the pee-pee teepees to be really useful. I had a girl first and it took me a while to get used to the plumbing switch with my 2nd... the teepees saved me many a soaking...

  4. I just went to a baby shower YESTERDAY I could have so used these ideas? Great idea to get them down before you forget!
    Thanks for participating in Word of Mouth Monday!!
