Packing a school lunch every day can get a bit monotonous, I’ll admit it. But it’s a chance to let your child know you’re thinking about her while she’s away from school. Long after she stops hugging you and saying “I love you” in public, she’ll smile when she opens up her lunchbox to find you’ve made her favorite sandwich.
It’s back to school shopping season here in Seattle. While many of your children have already started the 2015/2016 academic year, we have a few more weeks before that becomes a reality.
Cotton muslin is so soft and comfy and the perfect fabric for lightweight bedding, blankets, and sheets. It gets softer with every washing and muslin swaddle blankets make a great nursing cover because they allow air to flow so you and baby don’t get too warm.
I’ve been buying “gender neutral” organic baby clothes for my future grandchild for nearly two years. In that time, I’ve learned a lot about how to find the best deals on organic infant and toddler clothes. I average about $10 a piece and that includes jackets, sweaters, and more, making organic and easy choice.
Have you noticed how plastic has taken over our lives? Especially when it comes to kids. It seems like from the moment they’re born they’ve got one plastic thing or another shoved into their mouths. Then we start feeding them, and we use plastic again. And worse, many of you out there are still heating food in plastic containers in the microwave – stop that!
Summer is one of my favorite seasons, and I love all the fun activities and time we get to spend together as a family. Usually, I am so caught up in the summer festivities that I end up panicking last minute realizing all the back-to-school shopping we still have to do. This year I am feeling very accomplished in having already done a lot of my daughter’s back-to-school shopping!
