Princess 2011

Wow, it's been quite some time since I was here last! I just thought I'd check in with everyone. (Anyone still there?!) I recently got an update from a blogger I used to follow and it was so wonderful to hear how her family was doing. It occurred to me that I once had awesome followers too that might enjoy an update as well so here goes...

As I've posted before, I struggled with a direction to take my blog once the adoption was complete. I think I know what I need to do, but in order for me to do it I will need to post with a bit more security. Less pictures, more anonymity. In order to achieve that, I may need to start a whole new blog! I want to leave this blog as it is so those who are adopting can see our journey. So if I choose to move forward with this and you would like to follow, you will need to send me your email address so I can send you the link. Watch for more details on that soon. In the meantime, those updates...

Princess just turned 6 years old. Can you believe it!? She attends full day kindergarten and absolutely loves it. We try and keep her busy with extracurricular activities as she seems to do much better that way. At this time she attends dance (tap, ballet and jazz) and swim lessons twice a week. The boys are quite busy themselves and our oldest (who is 15 now) is giving us a run for our money. We joke that this is our "practice run" because when Princess is 15, it will be 10x worse! :-D

"Snot Your Average Wipe"

Okay you know the drill, cold and flu season is officially here and the little noses start a'flowin! Even weeks after the virus passes, the ugly boogies seem to linger. If you've ever had to pin down a toddler or preschooler to wipe their nose you know it's no easy task and no wonder- after the 100th wipe of the day, it hurts!

Well sore, crusty, chapped noses are now a thing of the past. Why? I ran across an awesome new product out on the market. They're called Boogie Wipes. What ingenious idea. It's one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" type of products. Hello!

Boogie Wipes are simply extra soft moist wipes made with saline. They come in great scents including Great Grape, Fresh Scent or Magic Menthol (for extra stuffy noses).

Boogie Wipes come in several packaging options too.

There's the Large 30 count pack for your home or car.

For gifts you can even purchase a Boogie Wipes Diaper Cake which includes:
