Spring forward with OXO Tot


Recently OXO tot sent me a goodie bag of their latest toddler must haves.  OXO Tot is my all time favorite toddler brand. My kids can throw, chew, and attempt to destroy just about every product and after a good run in the dishwasher, it always looks practically new.

On the Go Wipe Dispenser with Diaper Pouch. OXO is so clever! They attached a little accesory bag to the portable wipe dispenser. It is so great for the park or a quick trip because I can put a diaper in it and just go. I don't have to hull a hole diaper bag when it really is just a short trip. This is such a life saver when you don't have to think about it. I also throw in a apple sauce pouch just in case.

Flippy Snack Cup with Travel Cover. You can never ever have enough snack traps and my kids always have a snack trap in hand. M favorite is this kind because it has the screw top and my kids can't take off the top yet. Yet being the key word in that sentence.

Straw Cup (7oz) - The sippy straw cup has a straw that you turn the lid and the straw hides inside. Everett chucked the whole cup down a flight of stairs and it did not spill or open. I wouldn't suggest doing this but the durability is awesome.

Cleaning Set for Straw and Sippy Cups. Bottles and sippy cups are really hard to clean. Getting inside all the little crevices and straws, were the germs hide is so tough. This little kit is perfect to get into all spots a regular sponge or brush can't get to.

OXO Tot sent me all of these goodies, but these are my opinion.

Day 116 // Making Art Everyday in 2016

"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." Steve Jobs

This week I seem to have been running around of time and barely getting into my sketchbook.

30 minute sketch but would love to have more time. On the upside I did make a chocolate cake with strawberry cream cheese frosting for some out of town guests.
