Mommy Review Monday: Munchkin Snack Catcher

I would give the Munchkin Snack Catcher a solid 7.  Here’s what I like: They come in a two-pack with two different colors. Great for twins. Kate uses pink and Clara orange. In reality, they get mixed up quite a bit, despite our efforts.  They have easy to grip handles.  The bottom is non-slip, rubberyContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Munchkin Snack Catcher”

Adventures with Four: Cheap Entertainment 

10 million toys in our house…. And our kids choose to do this. It’s keeping them ALL entertained and out of the clothes I’m trying desperately to fold and put away. Hallelujah! ​​

Game Night: Bean Boozled

One of my friends at my previous job recommended Bean Boozled to me and the idea of it sounded like something that would be entertaining to play with the bigs.  I found and ordered it from Amazon. I really didn’t expect the jelly beans to actually taste all that bad, despite being assured that theyContinue reading “Game Night: Bean Boozled”

Shotgun Show-off

Let me start by saying that I would never have really imagined that I would EVER own a gun of any kind. I have never felt drawn to hunting as a sport and I really don’t feel the need to carry a concealed weapon. Most of this is because the few times I’ve shot I’veContinue reading “Shotgun Show-off”

Mommy Review Monday: Baby Banana Teether 

Both Clara and Kate started teething over 4 months ago. We quickly realized we needed some teethers that were easy for them to use. Our good friends’ son had this banana teether and they said he loved it so we found it on Amazon and ordered a couple.  What I like about them: They’re availableContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Baby Banana Teether “

TheContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Happy Healthy Parent Waterproof Silicone Bib”

Patriotic Babies

These girls just turned 8 months a few days ago and, for our obligatory monthly photo, it seemed appropriate for them to sport their red, white and blue in honor of 4th of July.  MaMa gave the girls these adorable patriotic outfits complete with matching Harlem Globetrotter headbands that she made.  She even made aContinue reading “Patriotic Babies”
