Wizard EasyStuff ~ Mother-ease Cloth Diaper Review & #Giveaway – Closed

As we transitioned to cloth, I was very fortunate to receive a used stash of One-Size Mother-ease Cloth Diapers.  It allowed us to switch to full time much quicker than I originally anticipated.  While thankful and knowing they were used on multiple children (5, I think) I didn’t find they worked the best

Ergonomic Wireless Mouse from Smartfish Technologies Review

I received the opportunity to review the Whirl Mini Notebook Mouse with ErgoMotion from Smartfish Technologies.  I was interested since I use our laptop almost exclusively now.  It’s not easy to go in the computer room and sit at my desk with baby girl.  She’s not content enough to allow that to

There is nothing greener than a reusable diaper.  Envibum aims to help families have an affordable cloth diapering option.  If you haven’t heard of Envibum before, I think you will be very interested in learning more and trying them for yourself.  I was very curious to try one myself.  One of the


Do Baby Clothing Sizes Confuse You?

Baby clothes sizes confuse me. They confused me while I was pregnant and they still confuse me. I also learned the sizes are labeled differently in other parts of the world. Now I know why people dislike family and friends buying clothes for their kids – unless they actually know the size

Find Fun Educational Toys at ebeanstalk!

I’ve always enjoyed shopping for my nieces and nephews.  I’m proud to say that toys and gifts from Aunt Darcy are often hits and become favorites.  The reason why? I don’t just look for the noisy battery hog toys marketed as all the rage.  I’m usually quite thoughtful about their age, their

A Better World by ToonUps {Facebook Game Review} #Play4Good

I’ve played a lot of games in my life: board, video, social… they provide entertainment.  It’s why I play! Games provide something to do to pass the time and relax.  I can’t tell you how adamant I was almost two years ago that I wouldn’t play “Facebook Games.”  Then I tried a few.  I


A Quick Look at BRAVE from Disney-Pixar

I got to see the trailer for Brave in 3D at the Cars 2 screening.  I must tell you, I was impressed with how it looked.  At times, both my husband and I forgot it was animated.  The grass looked so life like.  The hair movement was impressive.  It’s a movie I’m


Pumping is Hard Work #breastfeeding

I’n happy to say my daughter has been nursing for 8 months. This has taken work to maintain, but she’s been nearly exclusively fed at the breast this whole time. So what does that have to do with pumping, you ask? Well, it means I don’t pump often so when I take

Why I’m Not Winning Mom of the Year

Some days I think I’m an awesome mom.  I take care of my little girl – she’s clothed, fed, clean (usually), and has frequent diaper changes.  I breastfeed.  I cloth diaper. While I may do those things, it doesn’t mean I’m perfect.  I’m not even close to perfect. My house.. is a
