Apologies to those who don't have kids and/or aren't interested in them, because this post is basically kid related. First, I wanted to share (brag about) this picture my daughter drew this morning. Keeping in mind that she's not even 2 yet, she brought this to me and told me it was a cat:
Now, isn't that the cutest cat you've ever seen?!? I think we have a Picasso on our hands!
I also wanted to share a discovery that has also become my best friend. I recently bought a new bag (I hate the word "purse") because mine was pretty worn out. I wanted something fun that could carry my basic necessities (which aren't many - I'm pretty spare when it comes to my bag), but also accommodate the occasional toddler goods (sippy cups, snack filled tupperware, the occasional diaper, etc.). This new bag, called the Deluxe Everyday Bag, from LeSportsac fits the bill perfectly; it has two main compartments with several little zipper pouches, and one of the main compartments can expand with a quick unzip. This bag means that I never have to carry a diaper bag again, and it's really quite compact. It comes in a bunch of different fun patterns, too (I guess mine is discontinued...). I give it many thumbs up!
I also wanted to recommend a book to the other parents out there (or those who love children's books irregardless). Jerry found this book at a discount book store, and Brynne absolutely loves it.
It's a super crazy book! Each page has bizarre illustrations, holes to peek through to other pages, optical illusions, pages that can be looked at right side up and upside down, etc. It's just a really fun, silly book that appeals to my toddler. We have lots of fun going through it and pointing at the silly, impossible things.
