{A few of my daughter, Emma’s favorite things this week that she either just discovered or already knows she couldn’t do without or some kid stuff that her mommy may love even more than she does}

1.     My Super Snack Granola Bites – In the summer we are bouncing around so much from the pool, to barbeques, to backyard play-dates that it’s no wonder two of Emma’s favorite things this week happen to be snacks.  My beach bag and my diaper bag are constantly replenished with easy, healthy snacks that are usually as less messy as possible, too.  This way we are always good to go when hunger strikes.  For both Em and me.  This awesome little bag of granola bites was created by two moms in Summit, New Jersey, only a few towns away from where I grew up.  And the ingredients are wholesome, the vitamins, essential and the taste, so good that I usually pack an extra for myself.  Our favorites are the chocolate chip and the blueberry banana acai.

2.     That’s It Fruit Bar – On our way down to the beach (and on most mornings) the first stop Emma and I make is at Starbucks.  To grab an iced tea for me and if the ride is long, a healthy snack for us both.  I stumbled upon this bar yesterday and although I purchased it for myself, Emma decided to sneak a bite and she ended up enjoying it even more than I did.  I love that it is literally only comprised of one apple and 20 blueberries.  No added sugar.  No added anything, in fact.  Usually there are at least a few other additives, but not in this case.  And I thought that was pretty cool.

3.  Crocs – I was looking for a more breathable shoe for Emma.  Something comfortable and easy to put on.  Something that held up great when repeatedly splashed by the poolside and a pair that dried quickly, too.  I picked up these Crocs in a bright fuchsia and I am already falling in love with seeing them on my favorite tiny feet.

4.     Frog Backpack – Emma’s Uncle Robbie came home from a trip to the Turtle Back Zoo with this bright green, stuffed frog for her and at first she thought it was just another plush toy.  She soon discovered that it had a zipper in the back where she could store her water bottle and her goldfish, and two blue loops through which she could put her little arms.  As if she isn’t already growing up too quickly and directly before my proud-mama eyes, seeing her with a backpack on really strikes a cord.
