No one likes their baby wipes! Or at least no one I know. They are expensive, they never clean the whole mess, they aren’t durable, the list goes on and on. I find ALL baby wipes, including Honest Wipes (which I do like and use), NEVER get all the (sorry to be blunt) poop particles off the tush. If you haven’t already, please give a try to my Homemade Tush Spray. I spray this on before I wipe Jack and it gently and cleanly removes EVERYTHING leaving Jack left with a crystal clean surface that my he loves. (Never had Diaper Rash). It’s only a few ingredients from your kitchen and takes under a minute to make.It may be the best homemade and not homemade product I have ever used, we have one in every room of the house as well as his diaper bag. If an earthquake happened, I would save the Tush Spray above my home computer.

ANYWAYS, wipes are expensive and usually total crap. Here is a great recipe for wipes you can make at home and will rock more than the crappy wipes you despise at this very moment.

Advent Calendar Obsession

I wrote a post last Christmas season about making your own advent calendar. It involved sewing, cutting, stitching, and about 2 weeks of hard work and labor. This year as I unpacked my Christmas decorations I found no advent calendar, and after inquiring and accusing right and left I am left empty handed. SO BUMMED! This was supposed to be the advent calendar that my children passed down to their children and so on and so on! Deep breath. I’m also feeling much more lazy than I was last year so there is no way in hell I am going to try to recreate it. Having said that I decided to research every idea of an advent calendar using things from around my house and I actually found some great ideas. Perks: They don’t take up space in my garage. They are festive and cheery. Jack can help make and decorate them which he loves. They are cheap. They won’t crush all your hopes and dreams if you lose them. AND they take 5 seconds to make. Here are my top picks for advent calendars this year!
