Making the Most with Your Bundles of Joy (in More Ways Than One)



My daughter is a quintessential second child: in a hurry to go places---in every sense. I can vividly recall eating lunch with two friends and their children when Sienna was 4 months old. She wriggled in my lap, reaching for the irresistible morsels on my plate as I held her in my lap and restricted her reach. I was answering a question from my friend, H, and was mid-sentence... when my small and determined infant reached out onto the table quite suddenly, like a cobra when it strikes, successfully grabbing a noodle from my alfredo fettuccine and bringing it immediately to her mouth. Sweet victory. She had been trying to get her hands on food for weeks by this time. At this point, I was stunned. But I couldn't help but giggle and admire her tenacity and determination. I decided to finally concede to her wishes: from that moment on, Sienna ate each and every thing she could get her little fingers on.

It was clear to me even on that first day with her at the hospital that she was her own person and she makes her own rules. A fact that proves itself each and every day. With a strong personality, she clashes often with her older brother, Everest. But nothing is as sweet and moving as watching them share an affectionate moment together, spontaneously holding hands, having a conversation in baby babble, or cuddling with one another.

My two toddlers, now nearly 5 and 2 respectively, have many things in common---including the diaper brand they wear: Huggies®! Thanks to their unbeatable design, diaper blowouts have not been a common experience for us (in fact, it's happened only once in 3 years).

One of the valuable lessons that children offer to us is their ability to enjoy the little things. With their imagination, they are able to accomplish so much with little or nothing. Errands are an unfortunate reality of adult life, and in our household I try to manage them all throughout the work week so that we can focus exclusively on family time for the weekends. Not an easy task, especially with two toddlers in tow. But they constantly remind me of how much fun we can have together even during tasks that we consider mundane, if we take the opportunity when we see it. Take boxes for example: my toddlers have used our Huggies boxes as rocket ships, cars, castles, ships, trains, houses, and so much more! Their enjoyment out of repurposing the boxes we buy our Huggies in from Sam's Club have been a vehicle for their imaginative play, and as such, they get excited when it's time to pick up more diapers and Pull-Ups!


For a limited time you can save on your Huggies essentials at Sam's Club. You will receive $10 off a purchase of two select Huggies diapers, wipes, and Pull-Ups---or $18 off three or more. Talk about bundles of joy! This offer ends soon and you don't want to miss it. Look for a wide range of Huggies products at your local Sam's Club!

Duke + Wellness = One Happy Kitty #HealthyMeetsHappy


This post is sponsored by Wellness® and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated to help share the availability of Wellness Complete Health and NEW Complete Health Grain Free Cat Food available at PetSmart, but we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Neither Wellness or PetSmart is not responsible for the content of this article.

Our animal companions rely on us for their food, the conditions of their living space, sources of entertainment---everything, when it comes down to it. Which is why I was aware the moment that my family took in Duke that it would be my responsibility to provide our family pet with a healthy, balanced diet. When it came to cat food, I knew finding a wholesome natural source of nutrition. I found a great variety of Wellness® natural pet food options at my local PetSmart. Wellness® Complete Health™ancestral grain-free and Carrageenan-free recipes are carefully formulated and optimized with vitamins and minerals for a hearty recipe that contains no fillers. You won't find any soy, corn, wheat, or artificial colors and flavors in these foods.

Anyone familiar with cats know they've little in common with the beloved cartoon character, Garfield, who seems to often scarf food down even before he really know what it is. Cats can be picky, finicky eaters! So unsure of what to expect, I held my breath when I picked up a bag of Wellness Complete Health grain-free dry food, and brought it home. But I needn't have worried. The Wellness grain-free Complete Health chicken-based formula was a smashing hit!

In fact, Duke is so fond of his food staple that I've caught him trying to bite his way into the bag on many occasions. He never appeared very excited about mealtime prior, but since switching to Wellness I've noticed an uptick in enthusiasm. He will remind me it's mealtime if I'm even 10 minutes past the regular time, meowing at me insistently, and when it's clear I am going to oblige and feed him, he jumps up to his food dish eagerly (and impatiently, might I add). I have noticed an improvement in the condition of his fur as well, which seems more luscious and bushy than ever. I certainly hoped we would have good results with Duke's switch to the grain-free diet from Wellness, but the changes absolutely exceeded my expectations. It has been wonderful to see that Duke has been enjoying and benefiting from the better nutrition available to him with his Wellness grain-free dry kibble.
