Happy Friday eve, friends! Hope you all had a lovely Fourth of July. We got together with friends, ate lots of BBQ, drank sparkling spiked lemonade, cooled off with patriotic popsicles and the kids splashed around in the sprinklers. No fireworks for this family… we were all in bed by dark. It was the best day! The only downside to a mid-week holiday is that it makes the rest of the week drag on f-o-r-e-v-e-r… But to combat the weekday blues, it’s giveaway time!
It’s the common scene for any parent toting around a child: you’re carrying an obscene amount of “stuff” either in your pockets or your purse or diaper bag or trying to juggle it all while holding your child on your hip. From diapers and wipes to toys and snacks and sunscreen and water, plus your wallet, keys, phone and of course, coffee, it seems that our hands are never free. I’ve migrated away from my giant diaper bag days and use this Madewell tote to carry most of our daily “stuff.” But when I’m pushing the stroller, I want to be “stuff” free and I’ve now found the ultimate solution for that.
We have the UPPAbaby Vista and have been tremendously happy with that choice since we brought Morgan home from the hospital. I love how easy, well-made and modern the system is, with one exception: the parent organizer. This is the biggest lacking feature of the UPPAbaby Vista. Every drink spills, it holds very little, and when Morgan is sitting in the Rumble Seat facing forward, there’s not enough room to even attach the organizer, let alone use it. But when you’re pushing a stroller, you need everything easily accessible and handy, without having to sift through the basket below. So for me, this has been quite the conundrum.
Thankfully, I discovered Choopie to solve my mommy dilemma.
Choopie is the most darling brand of baby gear that is both innovative and stylish while also being incredibly functional. I have totally fallen in love with our CityBucket because it so easily holds everything I need. It’s soft but made of a strong, durable nylon fabric and can easily fold up with any stroller. It has a pocket for valuables plus a large cargo area in the middle for the bulkier items like wipes, snacks and toys. It comes in so many cute patterns and the major selling point: it has two cup holders!
This has been a great on-the-go, organizational “stuff” solution for our family and I’m thrilled to be giving one away to a lucky reader on Instagram! Hop over and enter to win a super cute CityBucket of your own! Giveaway closes next week. I promise this product is kid AND mommy approved. Good luck!
