Today was a day of firsts.

It started out this morning with my first call to Poison Control. Apparantly, my prenatal vitamin cap is not so child proof. Sage got the cap off and spilled a bunch and put two in his mouth. I read the bottle and it says "WARNING: Accidental overdose of iron containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediatly." Since I didn't know how much would constitute an overdose, I called poison control. I had him spit them out and it looked like he had only sucked off the coating and didn't get too much of the actual vitamin, which must have been pretty disgusting. She asked me how much he weighs, did a calculation and assured me he would be fine. I should have him drink an extra sippy of liquid today and he might have a stomache ache but she was doubtful.

The second first is that Sage took a 3 hour nap! Did I get anything done? No. I watched the rest of Herbie Fully Loaded, laid around and shopped on Ebay for nothing in particular. This nap thing makes me wonder a little if these two firsts are at all connected? Doubtful. He is probably just going through a growth spurt which would also explain his large eating habits lately.

I am looking for the perfect diaper bag for two children. For Sage, I carry what he needs in my purse currently, but realize that will change with an infant. I would like a messenger style and something that I can throw my wallet, phone, keys, lipstick etc. into as well. I like shopping the internet but I want to touch and feel before I purchase. There is nothing worse to me than wasted shipping money. Any ideas?

I am considering making my own towels for the baby and Sage. I want to make the ones with a hood. I remember Sage's baby towels being so small so quickly. He was a big boy! And I don't know where they are! I think I could figure it out, but the other side of me says, just buy them, if they don't turn out, then what? And to buy a decent towel and hand towel (to make the hoodie) would be around $10 plus my time. But, I would feel pretty domestic making my own towels and then I could make them for gifts and sell them on ebay and... Hey, do I have Sage's baby book done yet? No, oh. Maybe I have other places to spend my time.

  1. I happened upon your blog through Rach's and read about y our search for a messenger type diaper bag. The other day I was at Burlington Coat Factory with my sister-in-law and they have their "Baby Depot" section which I was surprised to see had a full isle, both sides stocked with very stylish diaper bags, many of the messenger variety. I don't know if you have a Burlington Coat Factory where you are, but it is an idea.
