One Fun Thing


GreenDaddy and I are as busy as ever, and before he took BabyG to the Children's Museum, he said: "I'm going. But you have to work." He hesitated, said. "Okay, you can do one fun thing, but otherwise you have to work."

This is my one fun thing. I have three things to say:

1. I'm posting product reviews at Prop's and Pans.

2. In the process of deciding what to review, next, I chose our shampoos. Which led me on a snaking webhole of research and I ended up, gasp, deciding the three shampoos we love need to be nixed. I've gone no-poo in response. More on this to follow.

3. I also want to review Klean Kanteen's, non plastic, stainless steel sippy cups. They're the only sippy cups on the market you can get without plastic, folks! Before I write the review, though, I thought I'd ask if anybody else has used them?

Alright! The fun is over!

Wow, I just found this blog. So cool! I use a stainless steel water bottle for myself, but I'm not a parent yet so I hadn't given any thought to sippy cups. I will be checking in on this site from time to time, that is certain!

i've never seen those sippy cups....I was wondering when someone would come up with a non-plastic sippy. Let us know how you like it!

I'll be curious to see your review. We've been in the market for some replacement to the evil #7 nalgene (perfect design though!) sippies. Several companies have introduced some version of this stainless alternative. Target even carries some. These also have a plastic mouthpiece though. Maybe it's a better grade plastic, but after some heat washing and toddler teeth, there's still a lot of plasticide leeching going on there. I wish, wish, wish for a heavy duty glass sippy. Or, at the very least, a stianless with a silicone mouthpiece.

Yeah! Go no-poo! Take one look at the ingredients in your typical baby shampoo, and wonder how these companies can sleep at night with all of the chemicals they're willing to soak into our children. We've been using natural olive oil soap on body and hair since our kid was born over a year ago, and his hair smells beautiful and looks nice.

There's no need for all of these chemicals, it's just companies' greed. To go a little apocalyptic for a moment, I foresee major health issues on a global scale in the next 30-40 years, as the effects of these chemicals in our foods and products begin to make themselves apparent.

I appreciate your no-plastic research too - we're behind on the switch to no plastic, so I'll follow your sippy-cup investigation closely :)

Thanks!
