    I want my baby girl, and her sister on the way, to be old enough just so I can try these out with them lol. Until then, maybe I’ll give them ago 😉 …or at least the C.A.R.E. plan! Love Deals-to-eals! I really want to be a member, but wonder, would that fall under the “budget” category, or just overall “expenses” category? Thanks!

    I hate making lunch, so thank you for the tips! I think I need to remember to keep it colorful for my little ones. I bought lunchtrays at my DI and they are one of the best purchases I have ever made.
