DIY New Mom Care Package

This post is brought to you by Boudreaux’s Butt Paste and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. #ButtPasteMom

My sister-in-law is pregnant with her third baby, so I have decided to give her a "New Mom Care Package". My sister made me one with each of my kids and they have been my favorite gift each time, hands down. The great thing about this care package is that it is perfect even for the mom who has everything because these things are going to be needed time and time again. These are also items that go beyond diapers, shampoos, etc. These are items that the mother-to-be may not have thought to put on her registry.

Celebrating National Princess Week

At dinner every evening, we go around the table and ask everyone how their day was. My daughter said they talked about what they wanted to be when they grew up. Here is how the conversation went:

Me: "So what did you say you wanted to be?"
SweetPea: "I want to be a princess when I grow up."
Me: "Oh, is that so."
SweetPea: "Yes, because they wear pretty dresses."
Me: "Well, you know to be a princess you have to be really smart and make sure you finish all of our schooling. You need to know how to be a ruler. You also need to be kind to others and make sure you share. You also have to have courage for those times when it can get scary."
SweetPea: "It's a big job being a princess."

It really is. I'm honestly not surprised by my daughter's response. She loves all things princess.  We even had a Disney Princess party when she turned 5.
Did you know this week was National Princess Week?

Sick just got real.™ + $25 Gift Card Giveaway

The video and gift card have been provided by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. All thoughts and reviews are my own.

When your child is sick you feel helpless. You wish you were the one who was sick because they just don't understand and you just want them to feel better. At least that's how I feel and of course I inevitably get it too, it's the cycle of sickness. My children thankfully haven't been sick very often. But when one gets sick, we all do...
I think the most memorable time was when went on our yearly family vacation a few years ago.
