Best Snot Sucker!

After recently having a new baby I am impressed by all the new gadgets that are available for new mothers.  I am going to start a baby gadget series and fill you in on all the new stuff available.  The first one is the NoseFrida from a company called Fridababy.  This health appliance is very unusual and it does looks kind of gross but it works so much better than a bulb suction syringe.

You can purchase the NoseFrida at Target, Amazon or online.  When purchasing the NoseFrida it comes with extra filters so you can change them out after every illness.  I know it looks gross but it is nice to be able to apply as much suction as needed to clean out the babies little noses.

When using the NoseFrida one part goes into your mouth and is connected to a plastic piece with a filter.  The larger piece clicks in around the filter and the end of that is placed in the babies nostril to suction out the mucus.  It is kind of like a large straw with a filter in the middle.

The blue filter can be changed and you can purchase replacement filter separately.  The whole setup usually runs around $16.00 plus shipping if you purchase it online.

Keep your eyes peeled for more baby gadget reviews coming soon!

Really?! Really?!

As I am trying to decide which direction to take this blog I have been reading other blogs about farmer wives and their lifestyles.  Looking at other people's blogs I have to ask WTF!  I mean really? How in the hell are these people doing all these activities with kids?

One blog talked about making homemade granola bars and another showed gardening in egg shells.  It looks like something from Martha Stewart.  Now to be honest I was a little jealous, I would love to be able to make homemade snacks for my kids but who has the time?  I am lucky to get laundry done, feed baby A and not open a bottle of wine before the girls come home at 3:30pm.

How do women do this?  How do they have children, keep a house that doesn't look like a tornado just came thru and still have time for arts and crafts?  Not too mention keeping a happy marriage and being a farmer's wife.

I like reading the blogs but come on! Try to put something real online.  I want to read about other women who are bad at housework, feed their kids fast food every so often and still have a great life.  So that is where this blog is going to take you the reader, all 4 of you. LOL

I'm back!

I can hardly believe that it has been so long since I have updated this blog.  I am using the blog to try and get a feel for writing.  There will be some stories, reviews of my favorite things, recipes and Pinterest successes and fails.  Probably mostly fails but it sure is fun to try new things.  So join me on this adventure and lets see where it leads.  Here is a little information to bring you up to date on the happenings here in the Iowa country!

A lot has happened since I last posted.  K (the oldest) is getting ready to finish 4th grade in a few weeks, E is getting ready for Kindergarten in August and A is a new addition that arrived in March.  Needless to say, things have been busy around here.

It is also that time of year when my husband is busy in the fields.  Corn is planted and coming up already.  Bean planting is in progress but we have had a few days off due to rain and cold weather.

I thought with all the new things happening around here I would get this blog up and running again.  I am hoping for at least one post a week.  We will see how that goes!

Wish me Luck!
