Yes, it's a 12-dollar hunk of plastic. But for some reason the big kids LOVE holding it while they walk with the stroller. We used it extensively on vacation last summer because we didn't want to bring a double stroller, and John Paul calmly held the strap and walked as fast as his little legs would carry him through the airport and everywhere else!
Not that we're anywhere near teething, but I picked these up at TJ Maxx the other day (um, don't pay that Amazon price...) and Elizabeth LOVES them!!! Mary Claire doesn't particularly care, and neither baby is teething but they're super-grippable and chewable.
I used to hate it, because I had never tasted it and the idea grossed me out. Then when I got pregnant with Cecilia avocados suddenly seemed like a good idea and I started liking it. And now I LOVE it! So much so that last night I had to use up our ripening avocados, so I made this guacamole (minus the jalapeno and cayenne pepper because I'm a wuss) and ate ALL of it. And it was delicious, although I ate it at about 10:30 and every time I woke up (and there were oh-so-many night wakings last night, courtesy the twins) I regretted the garlic and onions just a little bit...
But seriously! All the good fats! And all the deliciousness!
Countertop herb garden
3 plants fron the Farmer's Market, 3 pots from the Dollar Store, and I've got my favorites right there! Sage, basil, and oregano. I might pick up rosemary & thyme another week, but I've already been using them lots!
Okay, I don't actually enjoy it that much... But it makes me feel like a rock star!
Linking up with Grace this week, the substitute hostess with the mostess! Hallie's basking in the wonders of a sin-free child, so check out other link-ups at Camp Patton!
