Frog Laundry Hamper

We registered for this hamper before Ethan was born because it went with our nursery theme. Disappointment is not a strong enough word to describe my feelings towards this hamper. It worked for about 3 weeks before the plastic bars that hold it open ripped through the mesh. I do admit that we bring this laundry hamper up and down stairs, but that is just normal wear and tear in my house. I still use the hamper and maybe one day it will just be a stuffed animal bin, but for a kids clothes hamper I would suggest your investment not go elsewhere.

Food Scraper

The following post is from my friend Betsy:

I have another [review] for you to add [to your blog]: the big scraper from Pantry Chef (it's white and is used to scrape stuff off of cutting boards normally). I use it to scrape food off my classy vinyl tablecloth when there's been a small bout of food throwing or food escaping "somehow" from its plate boundaries. I used it tonight to scrape off all the MILLIONS of noodles that had *ahem* just walked off those little toddler plates onto the table and floor. Works wonderfully! Don't know what I'd do without it! Then, it's an easy matter to simply wipe off the residue that's left. (I usually scrape the stuff onto a kid plate that's headed for the sink)

Thanks Betsy! I have three of these in my kitchen and I use them for their intended purpose, but I can't wait to try this out after our next meal.
