Fluid! Squirt! Flo!

Does that title make you laugh like it does me?

Those are all names of Boon brand products that I have tried out in the last few weeks. One of them the “Flow” I won in a giveaway and the other two I was provided to review.

First of all I have to say that I love the innovative ideas over at Boon. They have great products that just aren’t your typical children’s items. I wish I had access to them when my first child was born.

 

Fluid Fluid is Boon's sippy cup. With a unique shape, it is perfect for the little one who is brand new to holding a cup. I can’t wait for Weston to start using it.

 Squirt

The Squirt is a baby spoon that holds the food in the handle. You just squeeze and the spoon tip is refilled. The idea behind this is good, but it hasn’t been super helpful for us yet. Since Weston just started solids, he doesn’t wolf down the food yet. The stopper from the food to the spoon tip doesn’t ever completely seal so more food than I want ends up on the spoon.

Then when I go to clean his face off, there really isn’t any way to hold the spoon except perfectly level that will keep food from dripping out and off the end of the spoon.

However, I think when Weston is bigger and eating more efficiently, the Squirt will come in much more handy. FloThe Flo product is a faucet cover for the bathtub. We had previously used a hard, molded plastic one in a Noah’s ark theme. It was problematic because you couldn’t access the shower pull while it was on. Now, with my boys, that was probably a good thing when they were little. And they didn’t share the shower with anyone so it wasn’t a big deal. But now sometimes they take showers and sometimes they take baths. So it’s great that the Boon Flow actually fits over the shower pull so it can be accessed even with the faucet cover on.

Not only that, but the water shoots up and out like a fountain, so it’s great to use to fill up the baby bathtub. In the past, I had to use my arm to divert the flow and wasted a lot of water.

The only negative is that the bubble bath option doesn’t work well. You’re supposed to be able to add it to one compartment and then add bubbles “at the push of a button” while the water is pouring out. It seems as if the bubble bath goes straight down while the water shoots up and out so the two never come together – resulting in not very many bubbles.

But that’s a minor detail. Overall, I give the Flo two thumbs up!

Boon has many more items available and the prices are all totally reasonable. (They have a high chair I’m dying to try out!!) You can catch them on their blog, Twitter or Facebook.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
