Mama Minute: Kid’s Bathroom Caddy

Bathroom Traffic Jams

Since school has been back in session have you had traffic jams in your bathroom/s?Early mornings can be a bit stressful when you have multiple family members getting ready at the same time.Last school year I put together a bathroom caddy for my daughter and we’ve been using it ever since.

Why A Bathroom Caddy

Everything in one place- Having a place where Jala can have all the essentials she need in the morning and or at night for bath time.

Easy to carry to bathroom- when the mornings get busy in our main bathroom the caddy makes it easier for my daughter to grab it and go to our other bathroom to wash her face and brush her teeth.

Help child become independent- Wonderful way to help your child become independent.

What Do You Need in the Bathroom Caddy?

The options are endless when it comes to what’s needed in your child’s caddy. However, here’s what we have in Jala’s.

1. A easy to carry caddy- I purchased this one from the thrift store on a half off day making it $1.
2. Towels- I like to keep clean face towels in the caddy and once she uses it she throws it in the laundry room.
3. Toothbrush
4. Toothpaste
5. Toothpaste Squeezer- this little gadget is optional, but I think it’s absolutely great for the kids.We have a hard time squeezing toothpaste out and the squeezer helps by not letting much go to waste.
6. Dental Floss

7. Mouthwash
8. Bodywash
9. Deodorant
10. Lotion

And again the possibilities are endless and depends on the needs and age of each child.

Multiple toothbrushes not caddies

The caddy is also great when you have multiple kids in the same age group. You wouldn’t need multiple caddies, but a tooth brush for each child. Below is a video you can watch with me sharing everything that’s in Jala’s bathroom caddy. Hope you received some ideas and inspiration to create your child their very own bathroom caddy.

Catalog Look for Less:Pottery Barn Decor Inspiration & $3 Storage Ottoman

A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to participate in a collaboration video over on YouTube. The host, Juani from Juani’s House, asked us to create a DIY from inspiration we’ve seen in a catalog or in one of our favorite stores for less.Collaborations on YouTube are always up my alley because I get to complete projects that I haven’t completed or something I’ve been wanting to do.

My inspiration came from a recent Pottery Barn Catalog I picked up while visiting a few weeks ago.From the catalog I took away 4 elements away from the catalog and here’s how I mimicked them in our family room.

 

1. Throw pillows (See Video)

2. Faux Fur Throw (See Video)
3. Ottoman

4. Mercury vases

The DIY that I created was the ottoman. Well, actually my husband created it.We had some free wood in the garage along with an ottoman top that I bought at a garage sale this summer for 3 bucks!My hubby did an amazing job on it and I stained it with some leftover stain we had from doing the kids floors. Watch the video below and let me know how well I did with taking the Pottery Barn elements and adding them to our family room.

The Cooking Channel: Poképudding

In the kitchen with Jala adding a twist to Banana Pudding and making Pokepudding (the kids helped me name it)Using the standard vanilla pudding and wafers to make the banana pudding. I added a twist by using marshmallows, oreo cookies and red velvet chips ahoy to give the banana pudding the Pokeball look.

Fall Planting & Harvesting Potatoes: The Small, The Medium & The Mushy

The summer gardening season is coming to an end and we finally had the opportunity to plant some cool crops and harvest our potatoes.Before harvesting our potatoes I have grabbed potatoes here and there to eat for dinner and to share with family and friends.

One of the raised beds we harvest from had a nice amount of potatoes and we also planted potatoes in a couple of large planters and a wheel barrel. From those planters we didn’t receive a large harvest, but it was enough for a couple of meals and after weighing it, they weighed in at over 7lbs.

There was a new raised bed that my husband created this year and that potato bed we totally slacked on harvesting from it too. The bed of potatoes wasn’t hidden, but I forgot it was there.In that bed there were a few mushy potatoes.We learned exactly what happens when you wait too late to harvest from our potatoes.You can watch the video below to check out our treasures.
