Mariano's Anniversary and Customer Appreciation Celebration

I've been to many grocery stores, and at this point I would have believed i've experienced everything a grocery store can be, but I recently learned of Mariano's and the experience when I got the chance to visit was truly a unique one. My first impression of them came when I googled them and found that they have a more than 4 star (out of five) rating. One of the comments mentioned how clean the store is.

Macro Life Naturals for Kids. It's Where Healthy Meets Yummy.

I can name at least three reasons my kids don't get enough fruits and vegetables. 1) kids can be very picky 2) fruits and veggies can be expensive 3) when we do buy them, I tend to ration things so that they can last and many times they end up going bad before they're all eaten.

I do realize that fruits and vegetables are vital to optimal health. You may have heard the importance of "eating a rainbow." Different colors and types of fruits and vegetables do different, wonderful things for our bodies and help prevent unnecessary illnesses that occur when we lack the vitamins and nutrients that they provide.

Nuby Wacky Ware Bowl

This is the Nuby Wacky Ware Bowl. I love the way Nuby keeps their products colorful and BPA free and just all around kid friendly. 

This bowl is great for snacks or perhaps a one dish meal fit for a toddler. Something like macaroni is perfect ;)

I was really impressed with how tightly this bowl seals and it is VERY sturdy. While I wouldn't recommend storing liquids in it, I just had to know if it could hold. I put water in it and it did a fine job of holding the water without letting it spill. Now I wouldn't recommend it because the seal is so tight, that you have to open it slowly and carefully to prevent any liquid from spilling, but since it seals so tightly, you can be confident when taking foods on the go.

Getting My Baby to Feed Himself

To me, getting a baby to feed himself is just a challenge within itself. You know there's gonna be a mess. You wonder what would be a good food to start with.

With a now three month old and a twenty one month old, i'm always relying on my older children to help me out. That doesn't always go without attitude and arguing over who's not gonna do it and who did it last. Sometimes it's just a little more peaceful to do it myself.

While out shopping, I wanted to get something special for my little man that he could feel like was just for him. I've been having to leave him behind with dad a lot lately. After work, dad just wants to relax, and so we haven't been going out as a family a whole lot lately and it's just very hard to have two children at such young ages while out shopping without him. I decided on this Danonino yogurt.

I'd passed it up many times because the majority of my children are older and they'd likely not like such small packages for themselves. And besides, I didn't want to pay the same price for these little cups that I pay for the bigger ones.

Turns out he really likes it. After seeing how thick it was when I opened it, I decided, hm, it'll be harder for him to make a mess with this, so I got one of his little spoons and handed it to him to see how he'd do feeding himself.

I did taste it and it's not bad at all. It has two times the calcium of other leading brands of yogurt that are designed for kids. My little guy can now get practice controlling a spoon. Awesome. What more can I ask for? It comes in strawberry, banana and strawberry-banana flavors. I'm glad I decided to go ahead and get it for him. I think it's safe to say he is too.
