These are a few of my favorite things...

This week I thought I'd share a few of my favorite things that I've been using a lot recently. Most of them are for kids, and boy, they are making my life so much easier!

Tim highly recommends this sippy cup :)

The Munchkin Miracle 360 Sippy Cup is probably the best sippy ever. Tim would never take a bottle, and this was the only cup he could figure out. Basically it's like a real cup, but it seals the lid once the child stops sucking. It is leak proof and dishwasher safe - which is a huge plus. Both Abby and Tim now use this style of cup...I need to get a few more :)

We have a pool at our apartment, so we are taking advantage of that perk while we have it! In my pool bag are 2 must haves - a Wet Brush for my daughter's hair and a sunscreen stick for kids. The wet brush will break through any tangle, and it's perfect for kids' hair after swimming. We have a standard size for after showers, and keep a Wet Brush Squirt in the pool bag. It's one of my favorite finds this summer!

Pool Bag Favorites :)

As for the sunscreen stick ... have you ever had to apply sunscreen to a 1 year old's face? Not easy. Tim actually doesn't fight me when I use the stick. I use regular spray suntan lotion for their bodies and then use the stick for their ears and face. Makes it so much simpler to go around their eyes too!

Another favorite - a baby carrier! John wears Tim all the time and it is so helpful. We have to take the kids house hunting with us, which is not an easy task. I'm just glad John loves carrying Tim around :) Speaking of baby wearing, don't forget to enter the Cute Awaking Water Sling giveaway!



My last favorite is something we love, but haven't utilized to its full potential until now - the library! Free books, movies, video games, summer reading program, story time...why have I never used this?! We live about five minutes away from the library now, and we have found ourselves there at least 3 times a week. The kids love it, and I love free entertainment. We just finished the reading program for the summer...anyone have any favorite kids books we should check out?

Hope you all have a great rest of the week! See you back here for Tuesday Talk!



I'm linking up with these awesome parties today!

  6. Thanks for sharing! I'll check it out!! We've been randomly picking out books, and I swear we always end up with a really weird book...last week, it was about a party for Jewish baby boys...my husband saw a party on the cover and thought it looked fun ;) was an interesting read for a 3 year old hahaha

  8. I was skeptical, because I figured it was like a normal brush...not sure how it works but it is great! My daughter always has a rat's nest after showers, and it de-tangles instantly. Finally no more fighting to get her hair brushed :)

  9. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Mix It Up! or Press Here (those have the same author/illustrator and are similar) would be Cora's top picks. Also the Pete the Cat books. You should get the ACPL Mobile app for your phone, too --it sends you notifications 3 days before your books are due (among other things).

  14. I need to grab that cup - I just realized we have neglected the skill of real cup drinking... and anything that's spill proof is a great thing in my book! And we haven't been to our library in a while! We need to get back in the groove. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend :)

  15. Agree about the cup drinking...my daughter used a straw type of sippy and then struggled with just a regular cup. Definitely recommend this sippy :)
    Hope you have a great rest of the weekend! :) Thanks for hosting the H5F!
