I've always thought there was a decent line between feminine and masculine. Especially when it comes to infants, putting the wrong type of green on a girl can cause a mistaken gender. Likewise the wrong style of blue jeans can get a little boy all sorts of "Aww she's so cute!"
Such a cute little jacket right?! It's blue, but has a sweet girly decide on the inside of the hood and sleeve cuffs. Pair this with a pink onesie and hat, and it's a very adorable FEMALE ensemble. Well, I thought so anyway. Vae and I traveled through the bitter Ohio cold to daddy's school to meet him for lunch. Out of the 5 people who approached us to awe over her, 3 of them used "he" "him" and "his." Ok...I get that she's wearing blue, and that could confuse people. I even get that not everyone would see the femininity of the design on the hood and sleeve. But she's wearing pink underneath it for pete's sake! (note to self, google origin of "pete's sake"). Chris said I need to stop dressing her in that jacket because everytime I do she is assumed a boy :-( Well she looks like a girl to me! And I get tired of dressing her in pink and purple, I like other colors, too! I don't restrain myself to just feminine colors, I'm certainly not doing the same for my bebe GIRL!
OXO Tot is a company that paired up with Our365, a website where moms can join together with questions, discussions or just good times oggling sweet little ones. I joined Our365 about a month after my daughter was born, and it's fast become my new Facebook (not that I don't spend my share time on there, too). They recently created a group called Mom Says Reviewers. It's a group where, every so often, they post new products not yet on the market, and the first X amount of people to respond will be sent that product to test it out, then all they have to do is send a response of what they think of the product. Well! I got my product today! A handy bottle cleaner with a flexible neck, sturdy brisles, a nipple cleaner and a stand so it doesn't have to lay on a yucky sink or dirty counter and collect bacteria. I haven't used it yet, so I can't give an accurate "Mom Review" on here yet, but I'm excited! Plus it looks pretty cool, and I'd imagine it's a little pricier than the cheap bottle scrubbers I usually buy. So from this momma, my personal opinion as of now is...it's free, so I like it!
When it's cold outside...WHERE is the month of May?!
I like style...I try to be fashionable on an extremely modest budget, but usually my happenin' clothes are dangerously close to out of style by the time I can afford to replace them. But please...do I really have to wear layers and layers 6 months out of the year?!
