It seems like just when you feel comfortable with a baby product, it’s time to change again. I loved Athena’s car seat/stroller system. I had it from her birth until now. It was familiar and easy to use but she no longer fits in the car seat. I do have her jogging stroller, which is absolutely perfect when it comes to sun coverage and durability, but it’s too heavy and too big to use on a regular basis. So it’s time to switch again. I knew exactly what I wanted in a stroller; I wanted something sturdy and lightweight with great sun coverage and a large basket for storage underneath. I found the Joovy Groove and it has everything I wanted and more. We’re all set for another couple of years… at least when it comes to a stroller. Continue reading
My daughter is no longer a baby; she’s transitioned into a kid. I don’t know when it happened, I think it was over night or today when I blinked my eyes, but there she is… a talking, running, funny kid with a unique personality all her own. Two awesome products followed us almost from birth until now with exceptional quality and durability: the Peg Perego Switch Four Modular System and the Peg Perego Siesta high chair. Peg Perego knows how to do multi-functional, quality products right. Some products are worth a little higher price tag and Peg Perego fits the mold. When I stumbled upon their toys section, I was like a kid in a candy store and I requested a Peg Perego Polaris RZR 900 for review. Continue reading
Athena is going to be 1 on April 2nd! I can’t believe it! It’s truly amazing how quickly time flies by. It seems like yesterday that I was starting to worry about giving birth and now she’s walking, talking, and eating table foods. I am a mother! How the heck did that even happen? (This is a rhetorical question; please don’t comment.) I feel like a kid myself most times and now I’m completely responsible for a little human being who looks to me for comfort and care. It’s beautiful and scary and intense all at once, but here it is. Thinking about a birthday gift was overwhelming in itself. What do you get for a one year old? What is the best 1st birthday gift? I didn’t want to get her something that she’d like for a few days and then toss aside. I didn’t want to get her clothes or something completely practical; it’s still a birthday after all. I decided on the Joovy Tricycoo and it totally rocks… or should I say rolls? Regardless, it’s awesome. She can use it now with a little help from us, then on her own with us pushing, and finally like a big girl without our help. It’s a great way to introduce her to balance and coordination and it’s pink! Win, win! Continue reading
Since I was a teenage girl, I imagined being married to the man of my dreams. Unlike most teenage girls, though, I didn’t focus on the wedding day or any one day in particular. My imagination didn’t run away with details of wedding dresses, flowers, bridesmaids, churches, invitations, locations, or accommodating guests. I didn’t envision a personally designed engagement ring fit for a princess or the perfect proposal, although I received both of those with an open heart. No, my thoughts and wildest imagination centered on having a partner who loved traveling the world with me, who loved to explore and create a beautiful, unique life with me, and who cherished the daily events that filled our lives with joy. Designing a nursery for our precious baby girl was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. We created a dream world together. The accumulation of all of my teenage and adult dreams was met through the process of designing Athena’s room. Continue reading
I know that some baby products are multi-purpose and Peg Perego is the master of creating innovative designs that function in various roles, but the Switch Four Modular System is even exceptional for Peg Perego. It comes with all the necessities: an infant car seat for road travel, a comfortable bassinet and bassinet stand for nursery and infant-use, a functional diaper bag, and the much-loved Switch Four stroller that holds both the car seat and bassinet. Instead of being called “switch four”, it should be called “switch ten” or more. Continue reading
