How I Get Things Done

I love my slings and wraps. Not only do they keep my babies close to me and feeling like everything is all right in the world, they save my back and allow me to have free hands to take care of the other kids.
This ring sling is one of my favorites. It is a ring sling. Here I am preparing snacks for the car ride to the YMCA. I'm actually nursing her at the same time. In fact, after the YMCA this is how I carted her around the grocery store. It was the first time I nursed one of my children while in public and walking around!!!
There were 3 essentials to that equation. 1: A nursing bra, 2: a nursing Top 3: a tight fitting sling. (I am investing in more nursing tops now for sure!)
I was amazed how easy it was and it was so nice to be able to multi task like that!!
Oh...and those sacks that I'm putting the snacks into???
I bought them off ETSY.COM. They are monogrammed reusable sandwich bags.

I just divvy out the snacks and hand each child their personal bag. No fighting, and they love discovering what is inside. Also makes it easier to throw the snacks to the back of the van while driving ;)
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE ETSY.COM??????? It is a great site for people like me who love handmade stuff directly from the producer of the product, and YOU NAME IT...YOU CAN GET IT. Check it out!!

Omigosh - babywearing plus plus plus! I don't know how you do all this. And you look so calm! (nice pic btw)

You are still blowing me away.

Thanks for the etsy info. I knew about the site but keep forgetting it's there. Love the monogrammed sandwich bags!

And yes.. I LOVE LOVE etsy.. It makes me feel crafty just having the stuff (I have the same bags) yet I could't sow/knit/paint to save my life!!!!

I will have some nursing tops for the first time with our third baby as well, and I can't wait to use them!

And which Etsy shop exactly did you get those bags from? I love the idea of Monograms!

I LOVE it. The one thing I would do differently if I had to do it all again was to wear my babies.
You go girl.
