Date night this weekend meant my first prom in 15 years. I share my experience and seeing the night through my 7 year-old daughter's eyes, on the Iowa City Mom Blog today. Come visit me there at Prom Through My Daughter's Eyes!
BALM! Baby recently shared three different natural skin care solutions with our family. We have sensitive skin and traditional skin and laundry products can often irritate. This is especially true for me and my youngest son. If I can find more natural, earth-friendly solutions that are gentler to our skin, I am always interested.
Natural deodorant has intrigued me for quite some time now. Is there a natural-based solution that can deodorize effectively throughout the day? Taylor's PITS! offers a 100% natural, vegan product that is made in the USA. It is meant to soothe and deodorize "those funky, stinky, sweaty, irritated, razor-burned armpits (and feet too)." This deodorant uses a combination of organic shea butter, oils, and other natural ingredient and has a vanilla grapefruit scent.
Congratulations on making an important contribution to the conversation about gender inequality in the LDS Church. Clearly the New York Times presented an unbalanced piece when they neglected to address the significant concerns of men in the church; including the absence of padded chairs in men's meetings, a need for a father's lounge to care for babies, and an equal opportunity responsibility to move ward members.
I appreciated your use of an ad hominem argument to point out how insignificant and unimportant the views
of the people you disagree with are. History definitely demonstrates that the majority is always right and, if only a few people experience or believe something, it shouldn't be taken seriously. In fact, dismissing them or even ostracizing them is the most effective route.
Have you ever joined a book club and faced any of these dilemmas?
* In order to please everyone, your club chooses "safe" books.
* You can't find a copy of the current book club selection at the library or books store.
* You just aren't interested in the books selected by the group, but want to participate.
* It's challenging to navigate the various taste levels and content concerns, such as subject matter/language/sexuality/violence within a diverse group.
* You haven't finished the month's selection and wonder if you should attend.
If your kids are like mine, they quickly recognize the difference between training pants, padded underwear, and "big kid" underwear. Once they come through the initial stages of the potty training
process, they want to graduate to the real thing. This is good because it means they are ready to leave diapers behind for good, but sometimes bad because they might continue to struggle with leaks.
Oops! Underwear are the perfect solution for your newly potty trained child who is ready to graduate to underwear. They are made of soft bamboo, with a layer of PUL to create a waterproof barrier for light leaks. While waterproof, they don't contain the padding or leg elastic, so they are not meant to contain full flow urine.

A few months ago, a friend emailed me (Nissa from Cloth Diaper Guru blog) a link to a new
product: Freemie Hands-free pumping system for breastfeeding mothers. I
was a seasoned, working and pumping mom, and this was something new. I
shared the link with a few of my followers and there was a huge interest
in this product.
While there are plenty of breast pumps on the market, Freemie is
completely different. The Freemie milk collection cups allows you to
pump with your shirt on. You can pump in front of anyone, you can pump
anywhere, and the pump is much quieter than the typical breast pump. If
you already own a breast pump, Freemie sells adapters to make the milk
collection cups usable with many popular brands. Freemie also sells a
manual breast pump that is great for on-the-go use.
