this and that

A little bit of this and that, and as always, no one has asked me to include anything, or paid me a cent:

I'm super excited that Cuppow now has a lid to fit standard canning jars! Marisa's review (and a giveaway!) are over here.

I took a bunch of cabbage pictures, so there are more coming. Fair warning.

Phillip has been loving Alphabet Glue so far this summer. I do, too - if you have a young reader in your house, this is a great way to fill some summer time with thoughtful, creative activities, crafts and all sorts of good stuff related to reading. It even inspired him to convert his 'store' into a library. 5 stars! There's a Summer Science Special, too! It's only a few dollars per issue, and they're delivered as printable PDFs to your inbox super quickly by Annie. Yay!

Thomas is pretty much toilet trained. On Day 4, we had no accidents at all! And last night, he refused to go to sleep in a diaper. He was waaaay overtired and was standing in his crib, sobbing "I want to sleep in mine underwear! I don't want a diaper!" (He uses 'mine' for 'my' and it's the cutest thing ever. Right up there with googly eyes on a tiny cabbage.) It took Phillip months and months, and you have no idea how thankful I am that Thomas loves wearing underwear and using the toilet. SO thankful!

We spent the afternoon at the beach yesterday, and it was fantastic. We ran into a colleague of mine who was visiting relatives, and her two boys and mine had a great time together. I love summer.

Hope you're having a great weekend!
