What makes my life easier: Diapers on my doorstep

When my mobility was impaired with my last pregnancy, I seriously considered getting a handicapped parking placard for my car.  Walking was so laborious for me, I began to look longingly at those parking spots in front.  I knew I could get a placard application signed by my OB, but my friend told me you had to take it into the DMV to get the actual placard and the thought was just exhausting.  So I stuck it out and was frequently blessed with a good parking spot anyway.

And.

I started shopping online for most of the things we needed.  The convenience and sheer ease of it was such a blessing!!  And before long, I was using it so much that Amazon.com officially earned a bookmark on my browser’s toolbar.

Then sweet Baby was born and my mobility was still impaired. And I now had three kids to juggle on my shopping trips and less room in my Costco cart. So, I decided to check out “Amazon Mom”. Another friend told me about it and how much she loved it, so I thought I’d see how it works.

And then.

I fell in love.

Because now, all I have to do is open my door…

… And there they are!!

Diapers and nighttime pull-ups for my three dear children!  And I didn’t have to haul it myself!

I had never thought about buying diapers online because I’d always purchased them from Costco.  But now I am hooked!  There is so much more selection on Amazon and they are so cheap (with free shipping!) with Amazon Mom and Subscribe and Save.  I can get exactly what I want, whenever I want it, with just the click of my mouse.

Wow.

What a blessing!  Thank you, Amazon.  You have definitely made this mom’s life a lot easier!

What makes my life easier: Monitors

A sweet friend and neighbor across the park recently gave me a baby monitor. She had visited my house and knew that I liked them. And now, thanks to her…

Monitors defined

… I have one for each child! :):)

This has been so helpful for me. With their separate rooms and multiple naps throughout the day, this is very handy for quickly identifying which child has just woken up (or hasn’t fallen asleep!) and needs me.

It’s also nice to have right by the back door and an open window. Before I go out in the backyard, I just crank up whichever ones are sleeping and then head out. That way I can hear them if they cry or stick my head in for a quick listen in case they’ve woken up quietly.

And just because I could, I ordered them from oldest to youngest. And it makes me smile. :)
