Since Oprah gets to do a show about her "Favorite Things", I decided I could blog about mine...as a mom, I've found several items that were created to make my life easier...here's what I've found:
Senseo Coffee Maker:
This little beauty makes a WONDERFUL cup of coffee in about 90 seconds. Let's be honest...what new mom doesn't need a nice caffeine jolt once in a while?!? And it's actually really good coffee!
I know that there's been some controversy as of late as to whether or not this is really "good" for the child, but for the mother this collection of videos provides 30 minutes of entertainment for your baby so you can get a shower, make some lunch, switch and fold the laundry, etc. Wonderful invention, people...just wonderful.
Diaper Genie II:
Now that Hailey has started eating solids, I truly have grown to appreciate the effectiveness of the Diaper Genie II. It's easy to use, and provides a barrier against the "scent of a baby", if you will...AND I've got Todd trained to empty it every few days!! What could be better??
The beauty of online shopping, of course, is that you can do it in minutes from the comfort of your own couch! AND if you check the clearance section, you can seriously get cute stuff for 2 or 3 bucks!?! I think I check for new deals almost every day!! (And my daughter's closet can attest to that.)
Well, that's all I've got for now...and sadly, no...I will not be giving you all of these items to take home. I'm not Oprah.
Feel free, however, to add to this list as you will. I know I'd love to know, what are your favorite things?! :)
