Welcome to the ALL NEW "Monkey Baby ...going green" (Formerly known as the Monkey Baby Boutique blog). This site has been dormant for quite awhile as my life took a turn in a different direction. My children are growing up and I've been focusing on designing knitwear.
Recently I've done some thinking about continuing on with this site, and it has led me to a total makeover! I will continue to post tips on going green and creating a healthier you, healthier home and a healthier planet! But I will also be including information on sustainable knitwear created by myself and others. Please leave your comments and let me know what you think of the NEW look!

WIN 2 BPA FREE Sippy Cups- A review and a sippy good time!

Well Green and Clean MOM is at it again with another fabulous BPA free giveaway! This time she's got TWO awesome sippy cups up for grabs going to one lucky winner! Who wouldn't want their little ones sporting a couple of these sleek and stylish sippies while resting assured that they were also drinking from Safer, Healthier cups? Below you'll see a sampling of the cups she has tested and reviewed at her post titled "WIN 2 BPA FREE Sippy Cups- A review and a sippy good time!"

Test Cup A:

Test Cup B:

Test Cup C:

Test Cup D:

Test Cup E:

Test Cup F:

I think Test Cup A, the 7oz Foogo Stainless Steel Sippy is the absolute cutest! But Test Cup B, the Foogo Stainless Steel Leak Proof Straw Drink Bottle is a close second... I like the fact that they both keep liquids cold and safe! (For up to 6 hours in the 7oz Sippy, and 12 hours in the Test Cup B style!) How great is that?! I hate throwing milk out because they don't drink it right away and then it has spoiled after setting out for a couple of hours.
Anyways, Green and Clean MOM recommends shopping at The Soft Landing for all your BPA, PVC and Phthalate Free Shopping! So, go check out her blog and don't forget to enter her drawing! You could be her next lucky winner!

What troubles lurk while mommies are working

Wow! I found someone else online that is going through "kinda the same thing" as me! But she was actually brave enough to blog about it before I was!
Diary of a Wannabe Work at Home Mom posted a blog titled When Mommy Works Bad Things Can Happen. I was Totally relating while reading this because it just so happens that while I was online trying to catch up a bit today, my 2 year old decided to take it upon himself to squeeze toothpaste all over the bathroom rug and then fill the sink with water so he could float all of our toothbrushes in it along with his rubber duckies, etc! My 4 year old finally alerted me by yelling "Mommy! Brandon made a mess!"
At least the toothbrushes weren't floating in the toilet! I guess it could have been worse!

It's been a painful week...

I apologize to everyone for being away for so long! I have actually been recovering from a Very Painful infection... My right fallopian tube became infected about a week ago and I ended up in the ER with excruciating abdominal pain... As of today I'm feeling 100% better! I've battled with some female health issues for a couple of years now, but this was one of the worst episodes I've had in a awhile! So once again, I'm sorry for my absence, but I think I'm ready to get back to blogging again!
