Nursery Water

Okay, I like ruffles and girly things. And, um, for those of you with boys, I like camo and navy, too. So I am not someone to deny a "luxury." But I do not understand the concept of "nursery water."

If anyone can shed some light on this, please, be my guest. But as for now I consider it to be one of those marketing scams. Kind of like once you tell someone you need them for a wedding the cost triples. I think nursery water is just as hateful. In my opinion FRESH water, that has not been sitting on a store shelf for who knows how long, in a PLASTIC jug, no less, seems to me a lot better for my baby. Just saying. It claims a fair purpose, and I am not saying it is bad. Just not saying I think it is necessary.

So as you are gathering up all your supplies for babydom, I am pretty sure you can leave that one off your list. Save you pennies for a pair of these shoes (they are my new obsession). My husband is probably rolling his eyes right about now!

Pre and Post Baby Exercise

So you are eating for two. Not two adults, mind you, but two none the less. Even if you are trying to behave yourself it is hard to stay super tiny when you are growing another human being. Just saying.

But taking care of your diet and your body is obviously important, especially when you are preggers. You feel better, look better, baby is healthier, and your delivery can also benefit from regular fitness. Yep. Exercise is good.

You can rock your gym, but wouldn't it be more fun to workout with other chicks due about the same time as you? You can make new friends AND not feel like the only walking watermelon in your aerobics class. Or if you just had baby, wouldn't it be nice to exercise with other women who just gave birth. Ya know. Someone else still sporting the maternity band. Could meet some new friends and set up play dates!

Oh Baby! Fitness offers a wide variety of pregnancy and mom & baby exercise classes in Atlanta. Choose from Pilates, Yoga, Toning or Water Aerobics. 25 Metro Atlanta Locations. All instructors are specially trained in pre/postnatal fitness, so exercise is fun AND safe. Check them out HERE

Athens Georgia Babymoon

Looking for a place to getaway and enjoy some "coupletime" before baby gets here? If you haven't thought about a babymoon, DO. It makes for a great excuse to take a little vacay and allows soon-to-be Mommy and Daddy a chance to hang out and have fun.

The Foundry Park Inn& Spa in Athens is a great local place to visit. The inn itself is the perfect mix between historic charm and modern style. There are the regular (adorable) inn rooms and the Park also boasts a couple luxury spa suites. Nice!

On site there are two places to eat. The Hoyt House is out of this world. And if you are in the mood for a little nightlife (maybe just to keep hubby entertained?) they also have The Melting Point. Live music certain nights, restaurant, bar, and a cute patio outside to relax if that is more your speed.

And then there is the spa. O-M-G! It is a quaint hideaway that does nothing but spoil.With treatments including massage therapy (Swedish, Hot Stone, Aromatherapy, and more), body exfoliations, wraps, facials, nail care, waxing, Oh My, what is not to love? There is also a fitness center and pool if you want to keep up with your fitness while you are away.

While in Athens, be sure to check out some of these great things to do and see:
The State Botanical Garden of Georgia

Visitors Bureau
Downtown Athens (restaraunts, shops, entertainment)
Last Resort Grill

A little beyond teething

Okay, so at first baby just grins away at you with that gorgeous, gummy smile. And then he starts drooling a lot, maybe gets a little fever here and there, and ummmm might at times be fussy. Why? The joys of teething.

By 1 yr that toothless grin has been replaced by several baby teeth that by 2 yrs are all here ready to bite and chew. You or baby's food.

At some point your brain does a little panic. Ahhh, do I need to brush these baby teeth? When does my kid need to start seeing a pediatric dentist? And where do I even find a children's dentist? Ahhhhhhhh

No worries. Alpharetta Children's Dentistry has answered all of these questions. Go ahead and breathe a sigh of relief (we did!).

Follow this link HERE and learn all about topics like:
  • tips for your kid's first visit
  • taking an office tour (kind of like a test drive)
  • oral health info for toddlers & preschoolers
  • the answer to the fluoride / no fluoride question (in toothpaste too)
Those of you lucky enough to snag at ticket to our Sept 29th Preggo Party will get a cheat sheet with ALL this information. It is a great reference to keep on hand.

Their philosophy is positive dental experiences for all kids (from toddler to teen!). Who wants their kid to be afraid to go to the dentist? Not me. So I appreciate their goal to make every visit fun and comfortable. The waiting room has a toy room sure to make FAO Schwartz green with envy. If you have ever had to sit in a waiting room with a child, you KNOW how great this attention to detail is.

If one of their 2 locations isn't convenient for you, be sure to find another pediatric dentist that thinks like a kid. Everyone will go home smiling about it:)
