My Latest Snag: Toddler Plates.
I wrote about this in a post-script earlier this week, but I just consolidated and re-organized our childrens’ cup/bottle/plate/bowl drawer, which was just the kind of hodge podge you’d expect after two years of motherhood. In so doing, I realized I need more divided toddler plates and purchased a set of these ones by RePlay. They are excellent. Microwave and dishwasher-safe (both absolutely crucial in my house — I have several melamine plates that cannot be put in the microwave so I inevitably end up dirtying multiple plates while trying to prepare her dinner!), simple and unfussy (i.e., not full of cartoon characters), and I like that the “wells” are rather deep and can hold things like applesauce and yogurt without a problem.
A couple of other favorite mealtime gear snags over the past few years:
NUK SIPPY CUPS (FOR TRANSITIONING FROM BOTTLE — THIS WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT WORKED FOR US AND THE SAME HAS HELD TRUE FOR MANY OTHER MOMS IN MY CIRCLE)
SISTEMA STACKABLE MINI TUPPERWARE (PERFECT FOR STORING LITTLE AMOUNTS OF BABY FOOD/TAKING ON THE GO)
BUMKINS BIBS (GREAT FOR TRAVEL AND ALSO FOR THOSE OF US SHORT ON SPACE — I DON’T HAVE A BIG CLOSET TO STORE THE BULKY PLASTIC ONES!)

No additional commentary needed. Words I need to hear though.
Post-Scripts: A Buttoned-Up Dress and an Elegant Bench.
+Inexplicably drawn to this buttoned-up dress. That color blue is so “it” for this year. My sister wore a sweater from Sezane in that hue on New Year’s and I’ve been itching for something in the same color since…
+Extra 25% off this ULTRA-CHIC and already-discounted dress.
+One of my favorite dresses from 2019 is still available in a pretty pink for under $200!
+How FUN is this dress?! It’s ready to party.
+Fantastic dress — bump-friendly, too. A great option for an important event if you’re expecting.
+Still the absolute best legging known to woman. I don’t think I would have survive the weeks postpartum without them! I am not big on wearing athletic gear but there have been days of intense parenting that called for them. These are chic and comfortable.
+Will I look too much like an old granny in this…kind of obsessed.
