Blake is very into her “pack pack” these days and it’s kind of my favorite thing to see what she puts inside it everyday. I kid you not when I say, it comes EVERYWHERE with us. You know, like my Instagram post said the other day, everything and I mean, everything, comes everywhere with us. So the fact that at least now she’s stickin’ it in her backpack is a good thing because before I was stuck carrying her giant stuffed dog, lovie, snacks, juice, dolls, chapstick, blanket and whatever else she decided was a must for that day. HA!
Currently her favorite snack is always in her bag and it’s Mama approved too. Gerber’s Grabbers and Organic Pouches. No joke, I found three of them in her backpack yesterday. She’s super cute too because she will push her tiny stool over to the pantry, stand on it and pull them down off of the counter. So apparently she’s just been helpin’ herself and throwing them all in her bag. 😉 Fine by me though, Gerber’s new Smart Flow™ Spout is designed to control the flow and get more of the food in our babe’s bellies rather than well, everywhere else (AKA: the car, carpet, couch and their clothes). We’re big fans. I usually bring a couple in our church bag on Sundays too and well, just about everywhere else on the go because sometimes you just need a distraction, am I right Mamas? 😉
The other day I had a super important meeting and no sitter, so I had to bring Blake, which was fine since it was a Mom related meeting, but I still needed to talk serious stuff so a crazy toddler wasn’t an option. She literally (no joke people) sat there so nicely, ate two of her Gerber’s Grabbers and colored for the 30 minutes that my meeting lasted. I was in shock and now swear by them, so you’re welcome, true, tried and tested people! That’s honestly a huge deal though because if I’m being honest, usually she would be like breaking their blinds, coloring on their floor, pulling my shirt down and who the h knows what else, toddler life.
Some fun details on the new spout; it’s a new softer spout than the previous and takes the technology just a touch further. Which means a more comfortable eating experience for your babes and security that the flow is just right for the food inside! Honestly, just the fact that I can turn recent pouch fails into a #pouchwin is the best part in my book. Blake likes to feel independent, what toddler doesn’t? So being able to just hand it on over to her, let her have control, eat all the yumminess and not have to worry about a mess is friggin’ relieving to say the least.
Just a fun little product that all you Mamas should have and keep in your pantry at all time, no pressure. 😉 Now, I’m off to find out what in the world is going in this “pack pack” today.
What are some of the things your little ones take with them everywhere? I always think it’s so funny to hear what other Mamas see!
