A Tale of Mistaken Identity and an Honest Co. Review

Indulge me for a second while I tell you a story about my baby's hair.

From the time she was born until about....a month ago, Reese had very little hair.  It was a cause of constant irritation to all those she met because this lack of hair immediately lead them to assume that she was a boy.  And when I would point out that she was, in fact, a girl, they would get very upset and say, "Well, she doesn't have any hair!" and storm off in a huff.

It wasn't usually that dramatic, but it did happen a lot.  I'm not sure why lack of hair meant "BOY BABY OVER HERE" but it does.

So, thank goodness for everyone, Reese's hair has started to grow.

And with that hair growth comes hair products.  I've written about The Honest Company before.  But they keep adding products!  And gosh darn it, their packaging is so incredibly cute!  So when Reese's hair was starting to get long enough to tangle, I instantly hopped over to the Honest Co. and picked up the Conditioning Mist.

The Conditioning Mist is a light spray that contains a variety of oils and butters (sounds delicious, no?) that keeps her (minimal) hair soft, makes her curls pop, and then she smells like a Creamsicle.  We apply it after the bath at night along with the Honest Co. Body Oil (also a fabulous product that I have been stealing like there is no tomorrow) for a little pre-bedtime beauty routine.  Reese loves it.

She also tries to swipe my Bobbi Brown lipglosses.

Why anyone thinks she's a boy is beyond me.

Now everyone can simply ask me where on EARTH she got her hair color.  But that's a story for a different post.

Also...if you are thinking about trying the Honest Co., I also highly recommend their reusable swim diapers and stain remover.  The jury is still out for me on the sunscreen though.

Five Reasons I'm a Terrible Blogger

1. I don't own a bubble necklace.

My teeth hurt just looking at this.

2. I hate cupcakes.  Ok, not really.  I mean, if you put a cupcake in front of me, I'm probably going to eat it and enjoy it.  But I'm just not all "oooh, OMG, cupcakes!" like everyone else on the interwebs.  It's a small cake.  Let's all collectively move on.  P.S. Ice cream is vastly superior.  P.P.S. I guess I'm not the only one who feels this way.

3. I can never and will never discuss my child's toilet training process on the internet. Typing the word "potty" makes me break out in a cold sweat.

A hundred dollars says this chick didn't even vote.

4. Nail art. I just can't do it.

5. I let my blog domain registration lapse and didn't even realize it. Sorry the site was down for a bit.

I'll try to post more frequently, I know I've been a little AWOL.

Whew. It feels good to have come clean about the cupcake thing.  I've kept that bottled up for years.
