I stumbled upon this website advertising a new feminine product, which is one of my new finds this week. It’s kind of like a cross between the Diva Cup and the Nuvaring. I have loved using the Diva Cup, but there are a few drawbacks, such as the mess of re-using the cup and having to sanitize it. I like that Flex is tossable after use, but you can still wear it for a long time so you don’t need many per period. Has anyone tried this? I am planning to order a box!
Speaking of Etsy, my mom has started selling her art there! You can see some her collection for sale, and she also takes custom orders.
I love her vision of “Two Friendly Sea Monsters and a Giant Flying Fish Escort the Ferry to Bald Head Island”
And “Pig Dreams of Life in a Castle Made of Mud.” These make great gifts for kids or nursery decor. : )
Speaking of worrying, now that the weather is warmer, I’ve been thinking about getting a GPS tracker for Mazen to wear when he plays in the neighborhood. We have 2 other families with kids, and they travel house to house in a pack, sometimes riding bikes within a perimeter defined by the adults. I spent a few hours one day researching these tracking devices, hoping to land on the best one and add it to my new finds, so I could give him a little all-American kid freedom while still knowing where he is at all times. This article has a great overview. Most of them were waaaay to expensive or required too much in a monthly monitoring fee ($30?!?!), but it seems that this one that Verizon carries called the GizmoPal 2 is actually not too bad – only $5 a month for the “phone” line and $75 for the watch plus $30 for activation. You can two-way call, track them via GPS, and get an alert if they cross a boundary. It seems like it’s perfect for kids Mazen’s age. It would be so nice to be able to make a quick call to the house up the block (without bothering the mom) and tell him to scoot home for dinner. I’m 75% sure I’m going to get it for him. Just wanted to see if any of you had tried it and had any thoughts?
And finally, I wanted to share how much we love our Social Print Studio square magnets! I get a set of 10 for $14 at least once a year, and my OCD self loves how they look in grid form 🙂
