I love it when things come in the mail

This new ‘subscription box’ craze makes me very happy. But, there are so few that I like that actually ship to Canada. Lucky for me, a local Mom, and I mean really local – like, basically in my neighbourhood – started a fantastic subscription service called MommiesFirst. They ship monthly to expectant mommies and new moms through baby’s first year. I have it on good authority that they’re looking to expand into the toddler years soon. My fingers are crossed that ‘soon’ means January.

Anyhoo, I thought I’d take a stab at creating a video and taped the ‘Unboxing’ of my latest delivery. I’m not great with the camera, a three year old jumping on me and trying to open and describe new things but I think it gives you a pretty honest look at how much fun it is to get one of these.


You can also gift one if you’ve got an expectant Mommie or someone with a new baby in the family on your list. Learn all about it here at http://www.mommiesfirst.com!

My favourite part of the video it that the boy takes a hike as soon as he realizes there aren’t any toys for him in there.

      Of course! I love, love, love my subscription and have no doubt everyone else who’s expecting or parenting in the first year (and hopefully beyond soon…) will too.
