Sending a Child to Daycare – Things to Provide

Daycare Kit

On Friday, it will be the first day that my daughter attends daycare (yikes!!!). Today, I’m busy putting together somethings to provide my daycare provider and thought it might be helpful to share with you all the items that I will be sending with her.

Edit (August 1):

  • Indoor shoes (Joe Fresh)
  • Water shoes (Joe Fresh)
  • Waterbottle (Skip*Hop)

I have also labeled her shoes and jacket using Mabels Labels (those labels are pretty amazing eh?).

For more experienced moms, am I missing anything? Please let me know.


A few of my favourite things

I thought toby&peach had a great idea listing a few of her favourite July things. Here is my list of a few things that I can’t live without this month:

1. Good Kisser by Usher. I’m pretty sure this song is about something else than kissing someone on the lips, however, I really like the dancing and the beat in the song, so I choose to ignore that it might be about something else…

2. Starbucks tumbler: Who doesn’t love these things?!?! I’m addicted to them (in addition to Starbucks mugs and gift cards)! They are perfect for drinking tons of water out of them. Trying to drink more water during the day? Buy one of these!

3. Stroller bug net: I bought a similar bug net to this one for our Baby Jogger stroller and it works so well. I got mine on

4. Sunscreen! Not for me but for our daughter! She has such fair skin and she burns so easily. I use this stuff like it’s going out of style.

5. iPhone 5: Really, I can’t live without this thing. My whole life is in it. I know, so bad, but I can’t help it. I love it.

What are a few of your favourite things?
