MUST HAVES WITH BABY

ROAD TRIP READY WITH CYBEX SIRONA M

By on April 15, 2018


Road trip ready, beep beep! We are checking off a bucket list item this weekend at Yosemite National Park. This has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember and this weekend is the perfect excuse to drive up and spend some family time together.
My husband loves to hike and explore nature so for him this is the perfect vacation. Since my husband works a 9-5 inside Los Angeles, he loves any excuse to get away and be with nature. We couldn’t imagine leaving Lila behind on any of our adventures so away we go!

At the top of my To Do list before we leave is installing a new car seat. As a mom every little thing worries me and car seat safety is one of those things. I did some research trying to find the right car seat that would put me at ease, and finally found, CYBEX Sirona M. It’s basically every parent’s dream car seat and the newest addition to the CYBEX Gold Car Seat family. Sirona M uses SensorSafe 2.0 which offers advanced child safety protection.

SensorSafe 2.0 integrates important safety technology into the chest clip of the car seat. SensorSafe 2.0 goes a step further to monitor the well being of the child while the vehicle is in motion. Whether you accidentally leave the child alone in the car or the child unbuckles herself, the essential alert will go off through both the vehicle receiver and the caregiver’s cellphone. There is a small vehicle receiver that is installed in the vehicle OBD2 port and that is what connects to the smartphone. If you are driving the car and can’t access the phone, the app is not required to receive the alerts.

This give me peace of mind to leave my worries at home and enjoy the trip ahead. I never know what’s going on back there with her car seat straps. But now I’m worry free since I will know if anything unsafe arrises in the backseat. I don’t know how I went this long without this family trip must have item.

p.s. At the bottom of this post I have rounded up all of my favorite things that I picked up to get us through this roadtrip.

LAST MINUTE EASTER EGG STUFFERS FOR TODDLER GIRLS

By on March 21, 2018
So the Easter baskets are made and I am putting the finishing touches on the Easter eggs for the big Egg Hunt. Since there is always so much candy I thought I would switch it up this year and add a few items for Lila to find that don’t contain chocolate. I found a few eggs at the dollar store that were huge! So I am using those to put some bigger items in. Plus how fun would it be for her to find a giant egg. Right?! Below are some things I putting in the non candy eggs. I hope it inspires you to create some non candy eggs for your egg hunt too.

MOM LIFE

HOW I AM SKIPPING THE GROCERY LINES WITH MY TODDLER

By on November 27, 2017

We have all been there.

Well at least I’ve been there. With an overtired and cranky toddler getting pushed around in a shopping cart desperately trying to get each item on my list into the cart. We pass by the crackers, she cries for crackers, I give her the crackers. We pass by the cookies, she cries for cookies, I give her the cookies. And so on and so forth. Before I know it I can’t even see my kid because she is under a pile of snacks in the shopping cart. Then we get into the checkout line and out comes my telephone my kid is so sugar-ified that now she wants to run around. This is just fine for a Tuesday morning at 9am, but the last thing I wanted to do during this busy holiday season.

I have been using Milk and Eggs service instead of going to the grocery store for months now. Their produce is absolutely amazing. I would compare their their fruit and veggies to farmer’s market quality, but with grocery store prices. (Yeah, score!) But really the best part is I take the shopping list off of my refrigerator and after my toddler is asleep I sit down and on my phone or computer I make my order. It’s delivered to my doorstep before I wake up the next morning and I start the day feeling productive with a well stocked kitchen.

I can’t say enough good things about this service, or about not having to to grocery shopping with my two year old. I mean I love shopping with her at the mall, Target, or wherever. But grocery shopping? Skip. If you want to try Milk and Eggs with me this holiday season I snagged you a 40% off coupon- and 40% off groceries, I mean c’mon. When does that ever happen?! Happy Holidays everyone!
