Rest for the weary bather (or their knees anyway)

I had a few clients a couple of years ago who all complained the knees of their jeans were fading, thinning and then ripping. As adult women who were long past the stage of thinking ripped jeans were cool they were dismayed that this was happening. Since I saw it in a few women all at once I realized it had to be from kneeling while they bathed their kids every night.

In Berkeley I also had to kneel to bathe Nate and it sucks. Mainly because I have bad knees anyway so this didn't really help the situation. Here I'm lucky that our bathtub has a wide enough side that I can sit on it comfortably.

But I did see these bath time kneeling mats that look amazing, I mean what a great idea. No regular bath or tub mat is thick enough to help, but these look really thick and plush, like a tumbling mat almost. These look like a great way to save your jeans, and your knees! Giggle has a couple of options, check them out -

This one is shaped like a whale, how cute!

Here is the top view of it -

That would make me happy I think, and you can hang it up from that loop if  you don't want to keep it on the floor all the time. I share my bathroom with Nate (it's the only bathtub) so I would rather have things that make me smile.

This one folds up so it's more compact for storage or carrying between bathrooms I suppose as well -

Either way, you can't lose. Find them both here -

A Zany Hat that just might stay on!

I have posted hats for kids and babies, it feels like lots of them, but most of them are no match for our little one who will rip it off if it isn't crazy glued to him. My sister suggested a balaklava but I hadn't looked for one and then I saw these from Hanna Andersson -

The Zippity Zany hat from Hanna Andersson, this is what it looks like on a kid -

And the mittens look like they'd be easier to get on, and with that string through our little man's coat, they won't get lost even if he rips them off his hands.

And then there is this too - Save Up to 50% OFF Select Items at Hanna's More the Merrier Sale! Nov 14 - Dec 18

25% off at Gap, Banana, Old Navy and Athleta, 20% at piperlime

Enough said.
