Another month, another haul of goodies! As a reminder, these monthly mail hauls are full of goodies I’ve purchased myself, as well as products I’ve been sent that we’ve loved. But only the “wins” make it on here! This post may contain affiliate links, and usually comes with coupon codes as well.
October Mail Hauls
I got TONS of questions about this after posting a video on my Instagram stories yesterday. The boys love using it, and I love that I don’t have to worry about choking hazards. It works on grapes and cherry tomatoes and slices them in quarters! OXO Tot Grape Cutter takes seconds to use, and even my sad arthritic hands are able to easily press and chop.
HELLO DELICIOUS. I legit did an entire Instagram post on these crazy yummy waffles. Waffle Waffle are NOT your normal waffles. They’re made with a brioche dough instead of a waffle batter and are this heavenly little breakfast that I can’t stop eating. And I’m not the only one! The boys and Zach are obsessed, too. I legit had to hide some so that there would be enough left for me to eat, ha. The birthday cake and cinnamon roll are my favorite right now. The cinnamon roll has white chocolate chips – YUM. But the maple, with a little bacon is crazy delicious. And the vanilla Waffle Waffle tastes awesome with anything – especially some fresh fruit and whipped cream! We’ve already ordered more!
I know you’ve seen my mama birthstone necklace all over my IG and IG stories. But the sweet sweet sweet Kelsey of Little Sycamore sent me a mama ring as a gift and it is so beyond beautiful. She included 3 white angel stones, a November stone for the baby we lost a few months ago, and then a January and September stone for H and J. I love having something tactile to represent my journey to motherhood. And days when my angel babies feel far away, putting on the ring or wearing my necklace is a way for me to still feel their presence.
Okay, so technically this isn’t a mail haul item. You guys saw me go into the store to buy it, since it’s cheaper to buy in store than online! But this Botley the Coding Robot has been AWESOME for H. He’s technically just under the age requirement of 5, but has had no troubles setting Botley up and getting him coded! H has played with Botley for HOURS. Which, if you know H, is quite a feat! I highly highly highly recommend Botley for your kiddo. They can make him move a ball around, follow certain paths, go through obstacle course, and so much more.
Click on the link above for a FREE month of KiwiCo! Because H and J are kind of in between ages, we did three boxes this month! The Kiwi Secret Agent box is for ages 5+, but definitely still doable for 4.5 year olds. The Koala Music box is for ages 3+, but J is able to do them right alongside H and I. And the Tadpole, Doctor’s Visit box is for ages 2+, but H still loves helping J do them!
KiwiCo has the most awesome projects to keep kids entertained and screen free. They’re designed to spark creativity, tinkering and learning in kids 0 – 16. And everything you need for each of the kits is completely included in the boxes! I love sitting with the boys and watching them with their KiwiCo projects. They’re always so proud of themselves, and it’s almost like I can see the wheels turning in their minds!
Take 15% off with code DARLINGGIFT! Bookroo is a monthly subscription for your kids that helps them fall in love with reading by combining the excitement of opening a gift with the discovery of a new, treasured book. I love that they gift wrap each book – the boys LOVE getting them in the mail, and ripping open their new books every month!
Ages 0-10 (board books ages 0-3, picture books ages 2-6, chapter books ages 7-10), you can choose a one time gift or personal purchase, or subscriptions of varying lengths. Plus, it’s women run and founded, which is pretty awesome.
Use code “brandnew” for 15% off! I have SO much to share with you guys about this kit. But for now, know it’s awesome. I have zero home schooling bones in my body, so you don’t have to be a teacher type to do this with your kiddos. Carrie’s Kindergarten Toolkit helps build a basic foundation of reading, writing, and math skills as your child prepares to enter Kindergarten. It’s all broken down to easy, simple methods. So it’s a great way to build your child’s confidence and have fun together while learning.
Use code DARLINGSP to save 25% off on everything site wide – even sale items (expires 11/15)! We found these adorable Christmas pajamas for the boys at Sara’s Prints and they are just perfection. H requested the “Color Me PJs” and I know he can’t wait to get to coloring. They have so many gender neutral, girl, and boy pajamas. So you can coordinate for all the kiddos! I love that the boys will match, without being too matchy-matchy.
Sara’s Prints pajamas are different in a few ways – they don’t shrink or pill. And the cuffs and waistbands are extra soft and stretchy, so kiddos will want to wear them. They’re incredibly high quality, so they can be passed down year after year as well. And with the 25% off code (DARLINGSP), it’s a win-win!
