Water-Safe Baby Carrier


With summer fast-approaching, visions of the dreaded heat and humidity press tightly on my mind, like a hot, wet cloth. Oppressive and uncomfortable, the Midwest summers can nearly kill you or at least obliterate any fun outdoors - especially for my family. We all dislike the heat. Staying at home with the kids, cooped up in the deliciousness of air-conditioning can only last too long. Boredom sets in. Quick as a wink, I'm out the door, having packed everyone up for an afternoon at the pool. I love the water; its blue wetness dazzling in the glaring sun.

Have More Fun in the Bathroom


Having been through potty training twice already, I came across the Potty Bench with mild amusement. This potty bench looks hip with its cool colors and sleek design. Not only does it boast “two enclosed side storage spaces for organizing potty training supplies, and a pull-out drawer for easy sanitary clean-up," but it also has a "built-in toilet paper holder and a removable soft deflector shield."
