Every once in a while, I find myself being overly happy about some stupid mom-related product. Here's my list today...and I realize that the majority of these items identify me as totally pathetic, but oh well...as we know, motherhood is glamorous.
1. Chobani Champions: I'm tired of my older son stealing all my yogurts. These come in a container just like the "adult" version, but slightly smaller. And the chocolate version can pretty much be dessert. I've tricked him into thinking it's ice cream.
2. Happy Bellies Rice Cereal: I started my youngest on rice cereal this week. I think rice cereal is stupid and has no point - no calories, no nutrition except some added iron, etc. - but I feel like my kid has to learn how to swallow before I start the "fancy" stuff (e.g., avocado - hah). But Happy Bellies Rice Cereal has DHA and probiotics, so there is some benefit and at least I feel it has a point.
3. Libman Freedom Mop: I told you, this is pathetic. I was tired of my steam mop breaking all the time, but I liked it, because I didn't have to use any chemicals. The Libman mop works just like a steam mop (i.e., reusable pads, trigger that squirts liquid), without the steam. I can fill it up with any liquid cleaner I choose (usually just warm water and vinegar in my case) and rid the floor of the pudding, popsicle, pickle juice, cereal milk, and spit-up solution that is constantly underfoot (yes, this was the state of my floor before 10 am today).
4. Zutano Fleece Booties: In the interest of full disclosure, I don't have these yet. But my youngest's Ugg booties have been, well, Ugg. They don't stay on, so my kid ends up sucking on them. I figure, he already has Sophie the Giraffe, a glorified dog toy, he doesn't need to be sucking on some rawhide like substance too. A number of my mom friends swear by these, so they're already ordered.
5. Nuk Genius Pacifiers: They get points deducted for having the stupidest name ever, however, as much as I hate to admit it (especially for twice the price), they're actually a lot better than the "old" version. They're lightweight and more ergonomic, so they're easier for babies to keep in their mouth. I'm assuming since my youngest is using them, he'll be Harvard material (my youngest used the "original" so I guess he's state-college bound).
What things...however pathetic...are you really loving these days?
