A tale of diarrhea and Pediasure Complete {Giveaway!}

pediasure completeI never thought I’d ever have to supplement my toddler’s meals with formula… until the night that she pooped in my bed and the smell woke my 2 month old baby up. Yes, that’s my opening line and I’m sticking with it. It was a messy affair – one that I’m sure many moms have had to endure atleast once in their lives.

The ABC’s of making sure your car is road safe

making sure my car is road safeChanging tyres, renewing license discs and car insurance… look, let’s be honest, as moms (and over all wonder women) we have more important things to worry about! Right? But, if you’re anything like me, you’d prefer to have your finger on it anyways. Maybe it’s my inner control freak speaking, but when it comes to making sure my license disc is renewed and my car is road safe, I’d rather not take fat chances. And hey, not having car insurance is like not having wet wipes in your baby bag – yep, you’re always wondering when the poo is going to hit the proverbial fan.
