Vroom Vroom Time: Life with a "walker"

This post is long overdue but nonetheless here it is! The baby walker.... don don don.... no he isn't really walking yet, I'm referring to the contraption that he freely wanders around the house in. The contraption he uses to get into everything and demonstrate what it will be like when he IS walking.

We call it "Vroom Vroom Time" and the fun begins. When I said he gets into everything I mean EVERYTHING.... like bills that Daddy has carelessly left in arms reach... and he is so proud of himself, "look mama, look what I found!"


And these baskets, that hold all kinds of goodies like Xbox controllers, that he gets into DAILY and knocks onto the floor and then drags all of the contents around the house.


Or this door on our entertainment unit that will need another baby latch because he's strong enough to pull it open and get into all of the tv components and occasionally a DVD that he finds in there, he tells me they are quite tasty!


 
I was one of "those" parents that shuddered at the idea of a walker...gag! I thought it was the worst invention ever created and the biggest safety risk you could EVER own. Why in the world would ANYONE want one, such a horrible idea. Well insert foot into mouth... I saw the coolest one at good old Babies R Us when I was purchasing his big boy carseat and thought I have to have that. It was kind of a childish impulsive buy but I mean the thing was so cool looking, cool enough for my rad little dude ;) So I bought it.

I realized quickly that it was a GREAT purchase. First off, he loved it! How could he not, it's like a cross between a race car and a jetski, it honks, it yells "Gentlemen Start Your Engines!" and flashes a million lights. On top of that, it isn't stationary, he can bounce in it too, and this child lives to jump folks!

So why do I love the walker so much? Simple really, now I have a close idea of what it's going to be like with a walking toddler. The baby proofing has already begun, thanks to the walker. I realize just how careful I have to be about things....  like not leaving business checks laying on the ottoman because they become half eaten and crumpled to death when I turn my back for 5 seconds. I see what a horrible idea it is to have stacked baskets full of things because they hit the floor daily. I know that I can't leave my cellphone on anything lower than 4 feet tall because the child cleptos it, slobbers all over it, and pocket dials people I don't want to talk to. I've learned that the lower half of the tv is going to be perpetually covered in fingerprints and there is no point in wasting gallons of cleaner and paper towels to keep up with it.

Most importantly I've learned just how smart my kid is already... when I watch him purposefully zoom across the living room to the banister to grab the jacket I just laid on it I realize that he is SO aware of what is going on. I would never have guessed how observant he is and that he truly doesn't miss a thing. It's just amazing to me.

What else I learned from buying the dreaded walker.... wood floors + baby machine with wheels = chaos. He can probably get that thing going a good 5 mph, maybe 7 if he has bare feet ha! Another thing I learned about the child in the walker.... bare feet (mom's) + baby in machine with wheels = OUCH! The dang child comes shooting down the hallway and slams into your feet nearly taking off your toes. It's like an obstacle course avoiding him, he sees which direction your jumping to get out of the way and shoots over that way and then back like he's playing defense. The poor dogs don't stand a chance either, they come over for licks and get a toenail ripped off.

Now as far as safety, I still feel the same way, walkers CAN be dangerous. Parents that use them as a babysitter and who don't supervise the child while they use it spell disaster. And STAIRS.... that's the biggest concern. We block off the entire staircase with the couch ottoman during Vroom Vroom Time. But if you keep an eye on them and take the necessary precautions I think they're great and like I said, it'll certainly prepare you for what life will be like with a real walker! Read more!

Oh I'm sorry kid, is that YOUR baby food

So this little concoction I made was so good that I was literally stealing my poor kid's baby food for myself. It was one bite for you..... a few bites for meee.....


Potatoes Oh My
(Makes a couple of servings *Double or triple recipe to make enough for freezer trays)

2 Red Potatoes
1/4 c of yellow onion
A few dashes of Lemon Pepper to taste

Cut into 1" pieces with skins on, steam, and puree.

Variations:
Add 1 zucchini
Add 1/2 c of mushrooms and 1 clove of garlic


Note to self, lemon pepper is an amazing spice on plain potatoes and is wonderful for adults too ;) You can disguise some veggies in this one and it's just as good! The first time I made this was with plain  red potatoes, onion, and lemon pepper. The next time I added in some zuchini and it was still yummy!

My next variation will be half cauliflower and half potatoes... enjoy! Read more!

Giveaway: Macaroni Grill Prize Pack













Open until Aug 23
Alright I've got another delicious giveaway for everyone! Win a Macaroni Grill Prize pack that includes one frozen sample of the Grilled Chicken Florentine variety, in addition to a serving bowl and pasta tongs courtesy of Macaroni Grill and My Blog Spark.

I am a girl that likes to EAT, I post often about food and I'm not a very picky eater! I'd eat pretty much anything put in front of me (except for maybe those ridiculous things you see on extreme food shows) I will draw the line at bbq'd scorpions mmkay...

I am also a busy person... running a couple of companies, taking care of a baby, and being a nurse take up just a wee bit of my time so quick food is sometimes a MUST in our household. But I hate to sacrifice taste and quality for time so I try to scout out easy meals that look and taste as if I spent hours cooking (although I admit to eating ramen and Beefaroni on many occasions... as I've said in the past, I still enjoy toddler food as an adult ;)



Well the giveaway here is for one of those easy fix meals that take NO time to prepare and honestly taste delicious! If you've ever eaten at Macaroni Grill you know how good the food is, you eat pasta until it's coming out of your ears it's so good. Well they have come out with a line of frozen entrees that you cook right at home. :::::cheering:::::  They put it in such nice words that I'll let them take it away...

Available in the freezer section of your local grocery store this summer, Macaroni Grill frozen entrées contain delicious authentic Italian flavors inspired by the Macaroni Grill Restaurant you know and love. The four new Macaroni Grill frozen entrées are perfect for quickly and conveniently recreating premium quality meals right in your own kitchen.



The new Macaroni Grill frozen entrées are made with high quality meats, colorful vegetables, distinct pasta and flavorful sauces. Try the Grilled Chicken Florentine, with grilled white meat chicken and spinach, along with farfalle pasta tossed in a delicious creamy parmesan cheese and garlic sauce. Or cook up the Basil Parmesan Chicken with grilled white meat chicken, broccoli florets and tomatoes with cavatappi pasta tossed in a flavorful creamy basil parmesan sauce.

To add even more Italian flare to your relaxing nights at home, check out the additional varieties of Macaroni Grill frozen entrées available this summer. The Roasted Garlic Shrimp Scampi and Spicy Italian Sausage Pomodoro varieties are perfect for bringing the romantic aromas of Italy into your home.

Alright ya'll I was asked to try the Chicken Florentine and we almost licked the bowl, literally. The best part is that it arrived with this awesome stout serving dish (just like at the restaurant) and super fancy pasta tongs! My husband was in awe with the adjustable tongs and I have to admit they're pretty slick. But it was super easy to prepare, we threw a couple of sides together, poured a couple glasses of wine and voila dinner is served.

So you want some right? Yah I know, and trust me you definitely want the serving dish and tongs too!

How To Enter:

Mandatory
Tell me which flavor (of the 4 listed above) you'd like to try OR which of your favorite Italian entrees you'd like to see them offer in the future.

The 9 Month Update: You Rock My World Dude!

So HL what are you up to these days... 9 months has flown by as you can see from various previous posts... I still can't believe I have a NINE month old :::::shakes head::::: You are turning into the coolest kid and I say that in the most UN biased way possible, seriously dude you ROCK!

As of today you weigh 19 lbs 4 ounces which keeps you in the 25% despite everyone wanting to call you "huge", and you're 26 1/2" long which is also on the little end- 10%. But you're almost too big for your infant seat and you are wrecking my back carrying it anyway so we've switched to the "big boy" carseat about 90% of the time.

You can say Mama and Dada and Buhbuhbuh... which we're coaxing into "buh bye"... we're also working on waving but you're mostly interested in just flailing your hands around and banging on anything and everything possible especially when mom spills baby food on the highchair tray, thank you for flinging food across the kitchen on a daily basis.

You're doing really great with the baby sign language and learning cues, you have understood the sign for "milkie" (as we call it) for months and you are now such a big boy that you hold your long heavy bottle all by yourself. You understand the words for "more" and "all done" and you've mastered the sippy cup.

You are totally slacking in the movement department, child you will NOT crawl, you completely veto that idea and have quite the fit when placed on your stomach as if you're screaming at us "GUYS I can't see anything from here pick me up for the love of God!" And you have quite the little temper and attitude on you at times... so much so that I often picture your voice as Stewie from Family Guy and it makes me smile ;)

You're also slacking in the teeth department, they keep debuting for a couple of days and then disappear so that everyone thinks I am insane, nice.

However, what I learned today at your 9 month appointment: The average age for crawling is 10 1/2 months, so really you aren't behind!! And the average age for a first tooth is 9-12 months, so you aren't behind in that department either!! I'm pretty sure it's your ploy to encourage momma's patience...

On the flip side you are crazy in your walker, you know exactly how to manuever that thing and you can walk with assistance SOO good that I'm sure you'll be walking very soon. You can also stand up for hours at the ottoman and have just started trying to pull yourself up with the Jumperoo poles... I wish there were something easier for you to practice with?? You also have started flipping yourself onto your stomach while you're sleeping and scream in bloody horror about it, yet you continue to do it....

You think the dogs are hilarious and love to rip out handfuls of their hair, luckily they like you and don't chomp your hands off when you torture them. You still sleep in the pack n play in our room because Daddy doesn't want you to leave but the time is coming...

And overall your Daddy and I are absolutely amazed at you... you are a joy to watch... pure and perfect joy. You are so smart and are learning at an incredible rate. You are our constant reminder to live EACH day, to be present in the moment because it goes by so fast. I cherish the moments that I rock you to sleep for every nap and for the baths and sly smiles that you give me. You rock my world HL, you are one amazing little boy...

Love,
Momma Read more!

Summer summer summer time and teeth!

Come on sing with me...

just sit back and unwind...

Ok so here's the latest news in the maven household. We spent a glorious weekend at the pool, I can't tell you the last time I was able to lay back in a lawn chair and soak in the wonderful rays of the sun, honestly it was probably well before I became pregnant with HL. So I enjoyed it!



And HL enjoyed it too, we practiced our swimming skills and went down slides and played in fountains and then slurrped down cucumbers and strawberries. Good wholesome family day. (sorry for the crappy phone pic)

What else is new, we had a TOOTH!!!!


Did you catch that? I said *had* a tooth. I kid you not, this is the second time this has happened, first time when he was 2 1/2 months old. A little toofey popped up, we photographed it and a day later it was gone like the wind... I just figured it was a weird fluke and he was really young to begin with so no big deal. Well this time I thought for SURE it would be sticking around considering that he is 9 months old. He was acting like his typical "teething" self and sure enough, a TOOTH!! I got all excited, announced it on Facebook (because that's where all the breaking news is geesh!) and 2 days later it literally vanished.

What in the world is going on here? Apparently my mom says that I had the exact same thing happen to me and claims that the pediatrician was getting ready to cut my gums if my teeth didn't stick around after doing this several times and luckily the last time they stuck. I have never heard of this, I can't find any technical terms for it but I find lots of other moms out there who have experienced it as well.

So if any dentists out there would like to enlighten me on what is going on that would be wonderful!! Is my kid EVER going to get some teeth here?? I keep joking with him to stop eating his teeth and that momma would like for them to actually stick around next time! Read more!

Product Reviews: Eco Store USA


I was contacted by EcoStore USA to test out a handful of their green products and how fun this was! I was like a kid in a candy store sorting through all of their awesome products to find which ones I'd like to test out. Their motto is "No Nasty Chemicals" and they take that to the next level of green-ness. Trust me, the founder started the business in an eco-village... like a full out- living off the earth -granola town! But hey why not... and now you and I get to benefit from it.

We landed on 3 products from all different realms. First up, Nappy Balm a multi-purpose baby balm with uses for diaper rash, cradle cap, you name it. My only complaint on the balm is that it is a small jar, with the amount of diaper rash we have in this house we could use an industrial container of the stuff!

Next selection, dog ear wash... ok ya'll with 3 dogs, labs at that, who love the water, we have our fair share of dirty ears and ear infections. Not only did the ear wash work really great to keep their ears all lovelylike but it smells wonderful... lavender is my ALL time favorite scent, I wish they made a dog shampoo in this smell so that my beasts could reek of lovely flowers instead of mud and poo. Again the only complaint was the size, with the 3 fur creatures we'd go through a LOT :)

And the last, delightful eco bar soaps. I got the Manuka Honey and Kelp which again smelled wonderful! It looks really fancy too, it looks very organic almost homemade which I like. I always keep travel sized toiletries in our guest bathroom and a couple of these soaps go nicely with that!


They've got all kinds of products to use around the house- baby care items, bath and body care products, pet products, and household cleaners. So there you have it, I'd highly recommend checking out what they have to offer, especially if you're concerned with living an "organic" lifestyle and disapprove of things like animal testing and planet polution like we do!




I did not receive monetary compensation from Ecostore USA for this review, I was given free product and this is my honest opinion of the products. To view my full FTC disclosure please visit the Disclosure page.

9 months in... 9 months out...

Dear HL...

My precious, sweet, tiny baby, almost toddler...

What in the world has happened to my world, I was honestly just laying in a hospital bed awaiting your arrival into the world... really it was yesterday... I swear...

I have been dreading writing this and avoiding it at all costs, I haven't even been able to bring myself to think about the fact that today you are 9 months old. I refuse to believe that it's almost time to pack away the bouncers, baby tubs, bottles and infant carseat. I am grasping to every moment praying that it stays... that it doesn't pass... that you don't get bigger

Grasping for dear life...

I don't want to wake up and be getting ready to attend your highschool graduation but I know that is coming faster than I could ever imagine.

This is the hardest thing I've had to do in life. On one hand I am so excited to watch you grow, to live life through a child's eyes, to watch you learn to talk and walk and read and write, to watch you chase down your dreams, to watch you become the amazing man I know you're destined to be.

But not yet...

Not yet sweet baby...

Momma needs more time to soak you in...

to live in THIS moment, to snuggle you without a fight, to feed you in a highchair, to rock you to sleep, to watch you on a video monitor. I just need more time. I want to be selfish, I want you stay put right where you are.

You know life is as cruel as it is amazing. Once you get to the best parts it starts going by too fast and before you know it that's it... "cause when the hourglass runs out of sand, you can't flip it over and start again"... But I wish right now that I could flip it over, that I could hit a button and go back to the day I met you, precious son. The day I laid in a hospital bed gazing down in true wonder at your beautiful face. My 5 pound 3 ounce gift from above that we waited so long for.

I'd give anything to relive the past 9 months of my life with you because it truly has been the most amazing time of my life. You have taught me so much and have given me a piece of myself that I never knew was missing. You have made me a better person than I ever thought I could be.

HL, to be your mom is the greatest accomplishment in my life and I am so grateful for that and for you...

So since I can't gather up the sand in that hourglass I vow to do my best to get the most out of each grain, to breathe in your wonder every day that I wake up, to spend more time on the floor playing and less time working, to take more pictures and fill up more hard drives no matter what Daddy says. I will squeeze you and kiss you until you're big enough to push me away. And I will watch you and teach you and most importantly love you...

Love you with all that I am...

Forever & Always...

Milestones and mommy guilt

So this is a new thing for me in the mommy realm... mommy guilt... I better get used to it right? But this time it's surrounding the whole concept of milestones. Whoever coined this term should be shot and so should the people, articles, and pediatricians out there that wholeheartedly emphasize the importance of said milestones.

Of all people you would think that I would know this by now. And since I missed the memo in my years as a pediatric nurse can I be one to tell the mommies out there that "EVERY BABY GOES AT THEIR OWN PACE"... for the love! I am totally guilty in this, I constantly find myself measuring HL up to the appropriate milestones for his age and the truth is sometimes he doesn't hit them as fast as other babies or as soon as I think he should.... like crawling... dude you are 8 1/2 mos old and NOT crawling, not even really getting on all 4's, or rocking, what is the deal yo? But I have to keep telling myself that there isn't some profound problem with him, he is just moving at his own pace. It's like I have to turn myself into "nurse mode" and rattle off the same boring statement that I tell patients because when it translates to MY life it is somehow different.... why I don't know... but I can't seem to get it through my head.

I wish I had never read any parenting books, I wish I was like all of those parents that parent "accidentally" (that's how I like to call it) who have no concept of "normal" or "advanced" or "behind"... because they are blissfully oblivious.

My "normal" mind knows that HL is perfectly fine and that he is doing things HIS way (what's new here, he IS related to me right?) and that there is no need for concern. But in comes the mommy guilt monster and I somehow feel like he is inferior to what he should be and so I find myself coaxing him to try and get him achieving these milestones. I know... parent of the year award right here... I bait my child with pickles and his bottle to try and get him to crawl... gasp! The madness has to stop now.

I vow from here on out to let him grow at his own pace (yes there is a time at which you should become concerned but we are FAR from that). And the stupidest part of the whole idea is that I should be counting my blessings that my child is still "immobile" at 8 months old because I will be sorry when he finally can crawl and walk and run all over and get into everything and make me want to pull every last bit of my hair out.

So can I please proclaim to myself and all of the other mommies out there in the same place YOUR BABY IS FINE! They are growing at their own pace so leave them alone! For the love of god don't start pushing your overachieving, perfectionist, must be number 1 attitude onto your poor little baby, they have a lifetime to aquire those undesireable traits themselves.

Fabulous Finds! Table Topics convo starters


These are great! They're called Table Topics. I have seen similar products from the Box Girls but they are a great addition to any get to gether or family night. In our family we are a little crazy about games... first off we're an Irish family so any festivities include lots of alcohol... and we're all over the top, in your face, crazy extroverted (a little overwhelming for new comers). So you throw in some good old fashioned games and you've got yourself a rootin tootin time (ok I took that a little bit honkey but you get the idea). Our favorite--> Taboo, if you don't have this or haven't played GO. GET. IT. NOW! I'm telling you hys-ter-ical!

So any chance to add a new "game" to our collection (which includes Yahtzee, Guitar Hero, Scene It, and many more) is a welcome one! I can't wait to take some of these convo starters and turn them into a crazy game. If nothing else you'll learn something new about everyone through their answers. Each cube is $25.



They have different versions like "Not your moms dinner party" "Girls Night Out" "Slumber Party" "Grandparents" and more and here's a look at the questions...

- What alcohol can you never drink again
- What gift would you love to receive from the man in your life
- What's your family known for
- If you could do something dangerous just once with no risk what would you do
- What possesion of your partner's would you like to throw away

See how fun this could be... especially with a drunken Irish family!

I think I'll be buying a few of these Read more!

Fabulous Finds! Naughty Betty & mom humor

Oh my gosh I have found the most hilarious and awesome site for everything from sticky notes to tee shirts! Naughty Betty seriously had me laughing out loud with their adorable sayings relating to women, motherhood, aging, etc.

Here's some of my faves that they have... so perfect it's ridiculous!


Although I will NEVER, and I repeat NEVER own a minivan (sorry if I offend any mothership drivers out there, it's just not my style lol!) this was one of the best I saw. And I literally spit water on the screen when I saw the colonoscopy one.

Pimp Your Beer: I'm a Beer Woman

It's no surprise that I'm a beer woman with all of my Tweets and blog references to Killians... but seriously I love beer. I also love wine and martinis and well wow I guess I'm sounding like kind of a lush but I come by it honestly... I blame the Irish heritage....

But let me tell you how excited I was to see this article in the Huffington Post... I can hardly contain myself... it's titled "Pimp Your Beer" ha! So I'll skip to the goodies. Basically it's an article all about how to make your plain old beer into a fabulous COCKTAIL! Rednecks Rejoice!

I am sooo pumped to try all of these recipes, they all sound delicious!

First up a Michelada... essentially beer with hot sauce and lime juice, some recipes get more fancy with worcestershire and soy sauce. But let me be the first to tell you (since I just tried my first Michelada yesterday) holy YUMMO! SOO good and I think if I were playing bartender I'd throw in a half shot of tequila too... just sayin...

Another great recipe the Black Velvet. This my dears is Guinness and champagne, don't knock it til you try it. I must say though my favorite Guinness "cocktail" is called a Snakebite (and sometimes called a Black Velvet too).. it is half Guinness and half cider beer. Do yourselves a favor and grab one, you will thank me later! But remember Guinness isn't your typical 4-5% alcohol folks ;)

Next on my MUST TRY list.... the Chocolate Ginger Delight... oh my gah! It consists of Guinness, sweetened condensed milk, semisweet chocolate, and ginger. I cannot WAIT to try this one!

Banana Wheat Beer... yea I just said that... bananas and beer, that accounts for at least a couple food groups for the day right?! You pretty much throw some banana juice into your wheat beer.

Ok so those are my faves from the article and if you're a beer woman too now you have a fancier way to drink your spirits... enjoy yumm! Read more!
