Thought that this was totally funny.
Found a site where they make from 100 % natural rubber flip flops from Thailand. The company is called Feelgoodz. If your allergic to latex, these are not for you. But you can bury them in your yard and they break down.
Also was able to test drive the car seat yesterday. God is so full of blessings. A lady I know sent HB a gift card to ToysRus and I was able to use it to get some construction paper, crayons, a step stool, and a potty donut for Mammita. I know that's not what she intended it for, but I got it gender neutral so that HB can use it later. Actually had to comb through ToysRus to find them US made. ToysRus should change their name to "cheap plastic Chinese made" R us. That's what the store is largely comprised of. Even the bibs were made in China. Anyway...test drove it. He looks great in the seat. It's angled up more so he can see out better. Also the straps are soooo easy to adjust. I have to loosen it to make sure I don't pinch his privates when strapping him in. The old seat was a pain to do that. But as we were driving down the road I hear this sucking sound. "HB what are sucking on?" suck "ah uh, what do you have back there?" suck suck He had taken the padding for the straps and had pulled them off. They were velcro. He was eating one of them. They were removed and put elsewhere in the car.
Watching Mammita was fine. We did water play outside, danced, cut paper, glued a collage, and "read" books. Also had a snack. I was worried about HB's reaction especially the feedings, but it was fine. Mammita was breastfed herself so it's nothing new to her. HB, on the other hand, was going to be a little ignored because he's not as mobile as Mammita is. He liked watching what we were doing more than anything else.
We also went to a dinner date last night. It was the first time HB has ever been awake for one of those. Usually the person watching him watches a movie or something. HB was fine. He didn't cry. I ended up waking him up to change him into a night diaper, jammies and to feed him. It was easier to show the sitter how to use an all-in-one then to try my prefolds that I use at night. I figured after being awoken he would sleep longer this morning. Nope. Woke up the usual time. Grrr!
And that's hodgepodge 3.
