1 // Pokemon Go
Pokemon Go has now been available legitimately in Canada since last Sunday, but I have yet to actually get it to work. I think it’s my phone. It’s too old. It looked like a lot of fun, and I’m so glad that it’s bringing a lot of different people together. I missed the Pokemon faze growing up, too.. so I’m mostly okay with not being able to play this. It would have been fun, but oh well. Andrew has it and plays it, so I’ll play through him instead. And keep using my phone for snapchat 😉
2 // Adventures in Cloth Diapers
We’ve had Autumn in cloth diapers pretty much since she was born (aside from over Christmas that year, and for her first few meconium poops). And apparently, I had been doing something wrong with my wash, because the diapers were smelly, even right when they were “clean”, and they were starting to affect Autumn negatively. When that happens, the thing to do is to do a full strip and bleach. It’s a way to “reset” the diapers back to the way they were originally. It’s not something you want to do all the time because it takes a really long time. But the diapers smelled really bad, and I didn’t want her to be in disposables forever, so that’s what I did this week!
3 // Babywearing to the Rescue
Especially with two kids, babywearing has been my saving grace. I’m actually able to go out, take the kids to the park, go for walks, and, most importantly, get things done while my babies are napping. It’s incredible and I love it. My current fave is my Boba stretchy wrap. It’s so handy and I feel that Aiden is super secure in there. Plus, then I’m hands free to be a person and do stuff. I love it!
4 // RAW: Winnipeg presents REVEAL
Last night, my friend had an art show through a group called RAW. It was so much fun! Not only was it a wonderful way to support a good friend of mine, but I also got to go out by myself… as an adult. Without a kid strapped to me. To a BAR! It was pretty much amazing, and though I didn’t stay the whole time or for all that long, I will have to do things like this more often. It made me feel like a real actual human person, instead of just the sidekick to my children.
5 // Alysalovely Littles
I think I’m almost ready to actually start something here! A few months before Aiden was born, I got this idea to start a little side business, and I’ve been dreaming about it and working on it for a while. I’m actually able to work on it on a more regular basis now, especially now that I can baby wear during naps. If you want more updates on this, check out the instagram @Alysalovelylittles <3
Hope you had a lovely week!
