My grandparents

I’m lucky enough to still have my grandparents on my fathers side anyway. I do still have my grandmother on my mothers side. THEY ARE HARD TO BUY FOR!!!! My maternal grandmother isn’t as hard to buy for. She just wants clothes and will wear anything and I literally mean ANYTHING. She isn’t much for making sure things match either.

My other grandmother, she wants things just so!!!! She’s like me and likes the finer things in life. Give her a kitchen gadget and she’s happy too but I want to get her something different this year. What do you get for someone that has everything but means everything to you? That’s a good question huh?

This is amazing and beautiful

These incredible images of waves were taken by the number 1 photographer of surf: Clark Little. He has dedicated his life to photographing the waves and has published a selection of the best images of his career. He captures magical moments inside the “tube”, as surfers say. These are only a couple of several I was sent by email but they are breathtaking.

Where was Mombo when my kids were babies?

When I found out that my young friend Jess was expecting her second baby (surprise!) so soon after the loss of my very best friend Helen, (her mother-in-law,) I was filled with mixed emotions. Helping Jess deal with the loss of someone that was so dear to both of us, trying to help her feel the joy of a new child entering the family at a time when finances are so dire was going to be a big challenge.

One of the things that I wanted to do was to make sure that she got as much help as I could possibly give her. Unfortunately we don’t live close enough to each other for me to be able to be part of her daily life in person, but I can research the newest trends and see if I think that the items would have been useful when my own kids were infants.
One such item that I found available for sale was the mombo nursing pillow. I can remember the many months of trying to get comfortable while nursing my own babies. I honestly tried so many different throw pillow and bed pillows to prop up the babies, but it was a difficult and trying time. Mind you, that was before the Internet was available, and I lived in a rural area, so I did not even know if nursing pillows even existed! So when I discovered this great nursing pillow online at Toys R Us and Babies R Us I was so excited that I just had to write about it!

If you are expecting a baby to join your family, I’d encourage you to “Like” Comfort & Harmony on Facebook and “follow” Comfort & Harmony on Twitter to keep an eye on their sales and new ideas. I sure wish I had a Mombo when my kids were babies!

Did you remember to change the clocks last night?

Are you the kind of person that changes your clocks the night before the time change, or in the morning when you get up? I think it is less confusing if you change the clocks at night before you go to bed, but there are so many clocks in the house (and the cars!) that sometimes we forget to change a clock or two for a few days. I wish that the “powers that be” would just stop all of this nonsense of setting the clocks forward in the spring and back in the fall. Just pick a time and stick to it people! This is absurd! It has absolutely nothing to do with farmers, it does not save anyone any money. Just plain silliness…..

Halloween will be here soon

Halloween is a favorite holiday for a lot of people. They decorate their homes, their yards and anything else they can get their hands on. Sure it’s cute and fun to try and make your home spooky so kids will enjoy it but this is a bit much if you ask me. Well it might be a bit much but it sure is cute!!!

I bet this is one of those pictures where the kid will be very angry at their parents if they ever show anyone this picture once they get grown!!! I sure would be!
