We have an announcement to make. It is big. Really big.
No, not that (I told you, baby #2 is a long way off!).
But for parents who have changed countless diapers, some not so bad, and some that have made us gag, we’re pretty excited. Ready?
Darah has been learning about using the potty for a month now, and it is going really well! My BFF Leslie gave me really good advice about potty training early: BE RELAXED! We have been, and that is working great for us. Would I call Darah officially potty trained? Absolutely not. But she pees in the potty on a regular basis, and is starting to proactively tell us when she needs to potty (thanks to sign language!). She poops in the potty every other day or so. When she poops in her diaper now, it seems to really bother her. I haven’t quite figured out why that is, since I don’t scold her or even frown at her when she does it. Any thoughts on why it upsets her?
The company iStyle Originals certainly helped us make the big announcement in a fashionable way. Isn’t that shirt adorable? And that face?! PRICELESS! While iStyle Originals isn’t affiliated with Apple, they certainly offer some unique and downright perfect gift ideas for all the Apple fans out there, as well as for their little ones! Darah’s shirt is part of the Nanowear collection, “coverage for your portable unit.” Hilarious! They also have Adultwear, Doggiewear and accessories! I’d love to have the iTweet shirt, as I’m trying to really get into the swing of things on Twitter (finally!).
I especially love these products as holiday gift options because of their packaging. The boxes that the shirts come in are incredibly clever, and will make any technology fan laugh out loud! The shirts are also soft and comfortable, and for us at least, are holding up well in the wash. I love that they are black, too, because black fabric hides all those food and juice stains beautifully! If you are more daring than me, they do offer some options in white, as well.
Buy it!: Go ahead and get some of your holiday shopping done right now! Most of the products on the site are an affordable $19.99! iStyle Originals has humorous gift ideas for the techno savvy person that will actually get used, rather than just be tossed in the closet!
