No More Wee Wee on Mommy

There are a couple of great wee wee covers on the market.
One that I had not yet discovered is from Sozo. A creative, family based company whose name is Japanese for 'creation' and 'imagination'. Well, the family really nailed it when they came up with The Weeblock TM for little boys. A cotton jersey covered sponge, in a cup-like form to use during diaper changing. Simply place the cup over the 'desired' area and it holds every little drop in, sparing you, the changer, from getting wet.
The WeeBlock TM is machine washable, and will become the new best friend of the parents of new baby boys! Visit Sozo for other nursery essentials!


The Sippy Cup Saver

Designed by a mom who was fed up with picking up tossed sippy cups from shopping mall ailes, the Sippy Saver is the next best invention.
Hand made, washable little 'leashes' for babies' cups! One end slips onto the cup, and the other clips onto the highchair, stroller, shopping cart, wherever. Only available online for $5.95 and shipping is FREE! Available in some fun prints to coordinate with any outfit.
I wish somebody had invented a 'spaghetti saver' last night when my daughter decided she was finished with her dinner. Yikes.


Read, The Doctor's Wife

Sometimes the sleepy days of Winter just call for you to curl up and read a book. As Moms, we need a fast read that will take us to another world but also allow us to take breaks if we need to, and allow us to pick back up where we left off easily without having to read the last chapter over again. The Doctor's Wife is that read.

In these times of controversy over a woman's right to choose this novel by Elizabeth Brundage is right on. A gripping thriller, it sucks you in and doesn't let go. It left me wanting more and it is one of those books that you pray they will turn into a movie in order to bring the characters to life even more.

Pick it up and then pass it along.

The Backup Tee

Zombymom: /zam-bE-mam/ noun. female, usually sleep-deprived, delirious, hormonal, without the ability to think, dazed, confused and absolutely worn out.

This tee is for those days when you just can't get it together enough to pick out an outfit! It's so great because it has your excuse printed right on it. What an easy way to be comfy and stylish. Throw it on with your jeans or yoga pants and you are good to go. My idea is to get several- they are really thin and soft and great for layering. Also, when you inevitably get something on the top one, you can switch them and put the dirty one on the bottom. Check them out at Zombymom.com.

Bebe International

I remember the days of celebrating many religions in school. This is how old I am. Way back when I was in elementary school ( mid 1980's) it was still cool to bring in a small Xmas Tree or to bring in your Monorah and show the kids how to make "latkes", or as I like to refer to them, "potato pancakes". At www.BebeInternational.com children (over 3) can learn about Chanukah with this set by KidKraft.

The set includes: Menorah, Removable, painted wooden candles, Gelt, Dreidel, Frying pan and latkes, and a decorative tote for storage. A damp wash cloth can be used for easy cleaning.

Time Out Lamby

My son is only 1 ½ years old and he’s had many a time outs. He may be too young for this now but I’m sure down the road when he's older and he will have more time outs. Maybe those time out periods won’t be so awful if he had the Time Out Lamby to occupy him. This soft lovable cuddly companion can also be used to oversee homework time, TV time, or any other instance where a timer is needed.

Better be careful though, this snug and cozy lamb may be so appealing that your child may enjoy getting time outs. Oh no! The Time Out Lamby can be purchased at Uncommon Goods.

Jonathan Adler Ornaments

My tradition is to buy my little one an ornament for the tree each year and most of the children's or "Baby's First Christmas" ornaments out there are so cheesy. Although they are not specifically for babies- I think these Jonathan Adler ornaments are so sweet and stylish. I love them so much I might keep them out all year!


Excuse me, I can see your underwear

Don't you just hate it when you are bent over in a busy food court, picking up your child's lunch tray off the floor that they just decided they were finished with? You know everyone just saw down your pants and your top, but you don't care because you're a busy mom and your boobs and bum are the last thing on your mind. Well, it's about time you started thinking about it. Check out Smart Ass. A line of thongs by a couple of "Smart Ass" gals (their own words) who realized that "If you're gonna flash your thong, why not flash it with style?". Some of their smart designs include, "Yummy Mummy", "Desperate Housewife", and my fave "Shopaholic".
