Miraculous Ladybug Costumes: My brother- and sister-in-law sent this to Emma for her birthday, and it was the sweetest! She was thrilled. We got one for her BFF Walker, too, that way they could twin. (The two families quarantined so the girls could celebrate together.) Thank you, John and Sarah! Oh, and if you don’t know what Miraculous Ladybug is, consider yourself lucky and move on. 😜
I find posts about people’s purchases made on Amazon to be very entertaining–probably because there are usually stories behind them. :)
So here are ours from the summer!
Figuring out the girls’ drapes for their bedrooms was a total nightmare. I did it on my own because it was so much more affordable that way, but I do wonder now whether I should have just gone with Calico Corners or something because I made so many mistakes along the way. The most recent mistake I made, haha, was getting rings that got stuck on the adjustable curtain rods. (Had to go adjustable because the windows are very wide.) They’d constantly pop off, and it was infuriating. So I just ordered these rings, hoping that the clips–which will clip on to the backs so you won’t see them–will work better. But we’ll see! (This is Emma’s room, in case you’re wondering what the setup is like!)
Amazon typically offers to send clothing from their own brands every month or so, and I usually have to decline because I’m always so behind on life. This month, though, things were a lot calmer so I decided to give them a try. A+ from me! I’ll write a post soon, but they’re extremely comfortable and quite the deal.
I can’t remember who recommended this book, but we really liked it. It’s especially helpful in the city as there are so many different types of housing. Emma responded very positively and now is constantly pointing them out and telling us about them when we go on walks. The book really drove home the idea that each one has something awesome to offer!
We’ve been really good about doing bath time at 6:30 every night. Previously we were doing baths in the morning because we didn’t have the energy at night, but wow. Nighttime bath time really provides structure. Everyone winds down, and the girls are way happier going to sleep, too. Anyway, this is what I use to detangle their hair since I can’t seem to find the Johnson & Johnson stuff anymore. Works just as well and Emma loves Dory!
