Dear Santa,
 I am 8 months old, will be 9 months right after Christmas, and I write because my mother has been buying me all these gifts and telling my family members stuff to buy me, and she is so wrong about the things I really want.  I could give two diaper fulls about receiving clothes in the next size up and talking remotes.
And I know you’re ready to make the joke about babies and how all we want is to eat the wrapping paper and boxes.  Very funny Santa, good one!   We do, of course, enjoy those things.  But my dad owns a clothing company I have full access to that stuff all day everyday! 
My list is enclosed below.  In all seriousness this stuff better be under the tree Christmas morning or I will eat every single cookie my mom leaves for you for future Christmas'.

What I want for Christmas

1.) These Keys
Nothing cuts teeth better than these metal keys!
I love my options too if I want to chew on rubber, 
plastic or metal. It can be pointy or square! 
Don't even bother sending me a set of plastic keys. 
I'm not an idiot I know the difference.

2.) This Power Strip and Cords
I want these cords more than anything I have ever wanted! 
Every time I try to play with them mom takes me away and I 
kick and scream. The orange on and off button and the variety
of different colored cords are a gift from god! Please, I want them.
They are located under the front desk where mom always sits.

3.) This Stack of Shirts
There is nothing I enjoy more than thrashing
around a clean stack of shirts that Uncle Josh
just printed! Talk about endless opportunity of fun!
Not only do I get to throw them, swing them and trample
them to the ground. I love to chew on them! ALL MINE!

4.) This Endless Roll of Fun

I have no clue why mom will never let me play with 
this! It is clearly "child safe" and lets face it, it would
entertain me for hours. No crying for hours... you'd 
think mom would be all for that!

6.) This Fountain and Plant Soil
One time I threw Sofie the Giraffe into the bottom 
of the fountain and mom didn't find it for a week!
I love baths and that fountain is one step from a bath.
Actually, its better because Mom doesn't have to undress me and plant soil, what kid doesn't love dirt! That pot is 
and endless pit of dirt that I love to stick my hands in
and than touch everything in the store when mom isn't 
looking! The problem is that every time I try to play with these amazing toys mom quickly wisps me away. Santa I would like to have my very own fountain and plant pot in my nursery!

7.) This Metal Contraption

I could spend hours digging and staring at this amazingly mysterious metal contraption! I love to poke my fingers in it and try to dig. Every time I think I am getting somewhere mom comes over to kill my vibe as always. The doctor told her I would start to be more clingy, SUCH A LIE. I want her to stop trying to hold and cuddle me. I can't wait for this new baby to arrive so she will stop treating me like i'm still an infant. I want to crawl, climb and explore everything but I can't do any of that with her constantly telling me "NO"!

8.) Eyeglasses
My personal favorite pair belong to my mother but I love to grab these off every four eyed stranger that comes my way. Sadly they grab them back from me just as fast and I am left empty handed. So for the 8th item on my Christmas List I would love to have my very own pair of eyeglasses! 



*          *          *


9.) TAGS
Nothing aggravates me more than the fact that there are an endless supply of these soft and chewable tags laying all over the store yet I can not even have ONE to chew on! All I am asking is that there please be a few of these thingys in my stocking on Christmas Morning. You know how much you like your cookies santa? Well THESE ARE MY COOKIES and I want them, now.

10.) Cement Crater 
Now Santa, I know this one might be a little hard for you to get because this crater isn't really a thing that I can have seeing as it's in the floor of my Dads store. Maybe you could make sure that my room or even A room in our new house possibly have a similar crater? I am only asking because I want this crater like Martin Luther King Jr wanted equality. Like Gandhi wanted peace. Like... Dad wants mom to stop having headaches at night. Get how much I want this? 


*          *          *

11.) My Very Own Luckless Hat
Clearly these are all mine since someone put them in my reach but Mom doesn't think so. I take the time to crawl all the way over to the shelf and pick my favorite hat, or two, or three and just when I go to mark my territory with saliva and some left over oatmeal *ZIPP* out of my hands it goes and in my high chair I'm placed. Now you can see how this gets annoying real fast. That's why I would like my very own Luckless Hat. To eat, obviously. 


*          *          *

12.) Box of Hangers
FORGET THE POOL OF BALLS, I want a box of hangers! Balls are okay and all but they are round. Now lets think about this... I don't know how to walk yet and crawling is fun but it's a lot of hard work and after a while my hands and knees hurt. Why would I want to chase around a bunch of balls? Whose idea was it to make them round!? This is why I decided that I want a box of hangers. They don't roll away and they are perfect to chew on. Best. Toy. Ever! 



*          *          *
There are many more items I want but I'll let you get away with just 12. I have a birthday right around the corner and Grandma always gives me what I want. 



Lots of Love and Slobber,

Confessions of a Hair Color-a-Holic

When sitting and deeply thinking about something harmful that I am addicted to it took awhile for me to come to terms with the ONE and only addiction that I have. 
Coloring & Bleaching my hair.
I have never:  smoked tried any drugs rarely drank alcohol chewed tobacco eat lots of junk food or even drank caffeinated drinks.
I am fairly borderline boring besides the fact that  I am ADDICTED TO CHANGING MY HAIR. Here is my story and eye opener:
I started coloring my hair when I was 15 year old.  For the longest time I was a tom boy and had naturally long dirty blond hair.  The first color I ever did was burgundy underneath and low lights up top. After that it was a spiral of different colors. 
Strawberry blonde, dark brown, blonde with red low lights, platinum blonde, chestnut brown it never ended. Along with all the colors I also had issues with ever growing my hair out again  because I was constantly ruining my hair with chemicals.
I started wearing my first set of clip in extensions when I wa…

Chicken Pox after Vaccine

The run around due to Breakthrough Varicella
On October 30th 2014 my son got his Chickenpox Vaccine. 

November 24th  I noticed a few bumps on his stomach when he woke up and called his pediatrician for an appointment right away. The doctor said that they were bug bites.  When I asked about the chicken pox vaccine she assured me that the rash had nothing to do with the vaccine. I picked up calamine lotion and carpet insect killer.  Went home and stripped his bedding, bleached his crib rails and mattress,  sprayed his carpet with the insect killer and even got rid of our dog. The bumps dried up but as soon as they did...
December 2nd Brayden was once covered in bumps.  They were mostly on his back/neck and stomach. I freaked out thinking that it was a bug again even though he sleeps in footie pjs. Once again I sprayed the carpets, stripped his bedding and bleached his mattress. I searched HIGH and LOW looking for any bug(s) or even a spider web. The bumps dried up and went away but not for long. 
By Dec…

An honest blog about Honest Diapers ❤ PART ONE

Before I get into the benefits of Honest Diapers I wanted to first share my story on the struggles I dealt with that lead me to Honest. 
My first born, Brayden, always struggled with diaper rash from name brand diapers.  When he was first born we used Huggies.  I noticed that I would have to CAKE on ointment just to keep the rash away when he didn't even had diarrhea or a soiled diaper. 
We then switched to LUVS. Within a week his rash was even worse and peeling.  I once again headed to the store to look and buy new diapers.
All these store named diapers that you always hear and every box is saying how amazing their brand is but even Pampers didn't help his poor butt. I was spending tons of money on diapers and diaper rash cream too! 
I then switched to Huggies Naturals. He still got a rash and our problems were far from gone.  Brayden came down with a virus that consisted of unending diarrhea.  Mixing diarrhea with an already sore bottom was not a good mix.  I took my poor b…
