My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

My handy dandy prize
I have entered into quite a few contests that 5 Minutes for Mom has hosted. And of course, I've never won. I mean, how could I be lucky enough to win a digital camera or a printer or television or one of the many other really cool prizes they've had up for grabs. But...On September 2nd, I found on their site a contest for the handiest, niftiest, much-needed Dapper Snappers. These little things are made to tighten up pants and shorts for kids. Since both my girls are very thin, I have nothing but trouble finding pants that fit them. Kayla needs the length of a 4T, but the would be falling down around their ankles. She could get away with being comfortable in the waist of a 2T. I've been able to find some brands with adjustable waist that she can wear. But...that makes shopping around for price very difficult. Not to mention I do a lot of returning.

I was completely surprised and excited to find out that I actually WON the Dapper Snappers. No, it's not something extravagant and expensive - but it's even better - because it's very much needed!

I received them in the mail a couple days ago and absolutely love them.

Conveniently, I had just gotten Kayla a new pair of pants from The Children's Place that I used to test them out.

Here is Kayla before the Dapper Snapper.

They come in an assortment of colors and can be purchased online through Toddler Tech USA. Through September they are offering free shipping. And at the bottom of the 5 Minutes for Mom post there is a coupon for Buy Two Get One Free. Can't beat that! I'm going to have to get a couple for Alysa!

Those are really cool. I have the same problem with Emma so I'll have to check those out.

Oh, those are great. Would be perfect for Sunshine, she is still so thin.

I saw that over at 5Min and bookmarked that site - my Kayla needs these too! I'm glad to know they do work - I need to order her some now..and how fun that you won something!

Perfect solution for those pants that don't have the inside-elastic-waistband-tighteners!

I have to get some of these for Petey. Believe it or not, he moved into a boys size 4 for length but the waists are huge! Perfect solution...
