Flavor of the Week-Zoobies

Melissa, May 17, 2010

This is a must have for every family that travels! The first time I flew with both weaners I was surprised to find out that they don’t offer complimentary blankets and pillows on West Jet flights anymore, you have to purchase them.  This made for an uncomfortable journey. I saw Zoobies before we left on our Christmas vacation and bought them for the weaners (from Bo Bebe in Calgary).  They are awesome!  Its a 3 in 1; stuffed animal, pillow, and blanket!  They are all super user friendly and even the 1 year old knew how to take out her blanket.  An added bonus of her blanket  is the fleecy corner she can snuggle into. The girls now keep them in the truck for all our travels.  There were tons of different animals and colors at the store and online: www.zoobies.com.  Enjoy!

Lets Bring Back… GLASS MILK JUGS!

Melissa, May 12, 2010

I love the idea of purchasing my organic milk in a re-usable glass milk jug! Why did they switch from glass to plastic? Lets do our part to bring this environmental idea back to life!!  The picture above is from a great American company, Shatto Milk Company.  They just get it! Check out this green is sexy blog post to read about why drinking out of plastic jugs is not sexy! Care to join my new movement? Start pestering your local grocer to bring it in! They can do anything 🙂 Here is where you can find some.  For my friendly neighbors check out mindfully.org’s list of Dairies Using Glass Bottles in US. You proud Canadians may have to search a little more!  I have contacted Dairy Farmers of Canada in hopes that they can help me in my search.  Do you know of some? Please send them my way! I promise a post will come soon with a Canadian list… until then…

Flavor of the Week-Baby DermaMed

Melissa, May 10, 2010

I live in such a dry climate!  I have an extremely difficult time keeping the weaner’s skin moisturized.  The oldest has huge problems with dry skin and her poor little hands crack and bleed! In her 8 years of life I have tried everything to help with this problem (even prescription creams). I am sooo happy to announce that I have finally found a cream that does the trick! One of my favorite things, besides that it works, is the smell!  It is one of those smells that you can only associate with one thing, and you love it! I also use their baby shampoo on the youngest’s melon.  I purchase mine at Amaranth Whole Foods Market. You can also go directly to their site DermaMed.com to check out all their products.

Happy Mother’s Day!!

Melissa, May 9, 2010

An extra special day just for mamas!! What more could we ask for? We are starting off the day at the Mother’s Day Walk & Run with the rest of the family and braving the cold weather in honor of my Grandmother Lillian.  After that my amazing mother is going to volunteer her day working in a kitchen downtown.  Really, what do you get a mother this fantastic??  I am such a fortunate woman and could not even try to explain to you how amazing my mother is! Take a minute and give your mama a hug, let her know she is loved.  As mamas ourselves, we all know that sometimes it is just nice to be reminded that we are loved and appreciated. With all that said, I promise never to post anything remotely close to being this sucky and sentimental, I just really love my mama!
