Under Review: Glow Bug Cloth Diapers

I received a free product sample from Glow Bug Cloth Diapers to facilitate my review as part of the Green Family event. However, all opinions are entirely my own. In conjunction with my giveaway (there's still time left to enter here!) and the Green Family Giveaway (#gbgreenfam), I got the opportunity to try out a new brand of cloth diaper! Which was super fun (diaper geek!) because I've only ever used one brand up until now (FuzziBunz).  I received a complimentary Glow Bug cloth diaper. … [Read more...]

Moving Week and Moving Weak

Oh my goodness. The last two weeks have been crazy. On Tuesday, June 12, the moving van showed up at our little house in Minneapolis. The movers got everything loaded up in just a few hours. Hiring movers was DEFINITELY the right choice. We sat in the backyard with Jaye while they took care of everything. Wednesday, Jaye went to daycare for the last time, Phil wrapped up a few things at work, and I cleaned the house from top to bottom like a maniac. By Wednesday night, Jaye and I were … [Read more...]

Father’s Day Photoshoot and D-A-D Frame

Don't read this, Phil! It's part of your Father's Day present! My mom called last week and asked, "When's Father's Day? Will says it's this week."

And because I have the perfect Father's Day photoshoot idea for creating an easy Father's Day present for any dad. And you know it has to be easy, because I'm managing to do it in between packing up … [Read more...]

Rocking Chair Revamp

The story of this rocking chair began a long time ago. Probably about a year. Once upon a time, a pregnant Jill stopped at a yard sale on a rainy day. She found some cute tiny baby clothes and was going to buy them. Then she also spotted this old gross looking rocking chair. But she only had a $10 bill and the marked prices for all her items was more than that. But never fear, Jill was enrolled in International Negotiation at William Mitchell College of Law at the time. So she put her mad … [Read more...]

How to: Cloth Wipe Solution

Along with cloth diapering, it just seemed to make sense to use cloth wipes, too. If you're washing some gross poopy stuff, why not wash more gross poopy stuff, right? The wipes themselves are mostly squares I cut from baby hooded towels (you know those silly tiny ones you get at baby showers that are too little to keep baby warm after a bath) and also some baby washcloths. The wipe squares live dry in a bin in our changing table. We squirt them with solution before each use. Here's how … [Read more...]
