I’m not going to lie, I struggle most days with trying to find the balance between working and being a Mom. It’s hard, really hard. Since we’ve moved into our new house and are trying to get settled in, while I work full time still and take care of Blake and I attempt to train a (really cute) new puppy–things have been chaotic. Most days have ended in tears and a feeling of defeat, but I’m slowly but surely getting the hang of it. It’s all a work in progress. However, today I’m so excited because we’ve teamed up with Fisher Price again to chat about one of their fabulous products and how it’s honestly been my saving grace.
Blake currently gets into literally, EVERYTHING; from the dog bowls to the living room baskets and anything else she can find that she’s probably not supposed to get into. However, she’s at that age and I don’t want to get mad at her for trying to explore and develop, that would just be silly! But at the same time, she’s got to learn what’s okay and not okay to get into. Thankfully, (my SAVING GRACE) Fisher Price makes this amazing thing called a Play Yard 😉 (which i just saw happens to be on sale right now at Target…you’re welcome). Well, it’s been life changing and I totally mean it. Here’s an example; the other day I HAD to take a phone call for work and it was an important one. Well cute little Miss Blake was pulling the dogs hair, trying to walk along the coffee table (which is still a work in progress and generally ends in tears) and I had to do something. So I pulled out my Play Yard, stuck her in there with some toys and she was happy as could be for the 30 minutes I was on the phone! She played and laughed and I knew she was safe and happy in there next to me and not eating dog food. 😉 That’s a win, win in my book y’all.
Now, all of you Mamas expecting or that just had a babe I highly suggest this product not only for the future, but convenience now!! Talk about the perfect place for changing and quick naps. It has an infant insert and little pockets on the side to hold diapers, wipes and whatever else. I wish I had, had this for Blake when she was born! I could have just stuck it in my office, she could’ve slept right next to me and we would have gotten a heck of a lot more done 😉
Anyways, so while I’m trying to get the hang of life over here and thankfully getting breaks because of Fisher Price, you get the chance to enter to win one below! Who doesn’t love a REALLY good giveaway?! Here’s how to enter (and there’s 3 chances to enter, which means 3 chances to win!):
