Flash back to nearly 11 years ago when MP was a new mom. Her go-to resources included a few friends who recently had babies, babycenter.com, a collection of parenting books on the bedside table and her obstetrician. If an event existed to expose her to everything her community had to offer new parents, she would have jumped at the chance to go.

Now that Thanksgiving is behind us and the busy weeks leading up to the holidays are just beginning, we focus on straightforward and satisfying weekly meals — crockpot chili, simple soups, hearty pasta dishes and quick stir fry-recipes.
Our friend Chef Watcharee Limanon adds to our easy, weeknight repertoire with her collection of delicious thai sauces. There’s a crowd-pleasing peanut sauce that is a great for chicken skewers and sticky brown rice. The flavorful Pad Thai sauce, which is new to Watcharee’s collection, is a favorite paired with rice noodles and veggies. And the Massaman and green curry sauces add a hint of spice that elevates any stir fry to restaurant quality.

Our friends and sponsors at Daytrip Jr. are generously offering a Cute Potato reader the chance to win a Classic Walker Wagon from Radio Flyer. This little wagon is a sentimental favorite in our family. CP#1 and #2 used it in the backyard when they were first beginning to walk. The two have pushed stuffed animals, dolls, and even cousins in the wagon.

When the kids were toddlers and winter was at its worst, we’d clear the cars from our garage and let them ride around in circles. The activity didn’t seem like much, but CP#1 and #2 always had a blast. MP is certain her duo would have loved this award-winning Spherovelo ride-on toy. Designed for children ages 10-24 months, the Spherovelo can be stabilized for little ones who are just getting their footing, and later, once the stabilizers are removed, it helps children learn to balance while they ride.
Congratulations to lucky #4—Jeanne Meyers! Jeanne has won the Spherolvelo scooter from Daytrip Jr.
PS: Indoor go-carts for big kids.

Now that school is back in full swing, MP is feeling ready for a little self-care. She’s been running to soccer, gymnastics, the grocery store, school events, meetings and birthday parties. All good things, of course, but adapting to a new schedule can tire a mama out.
Enter MP’s go-to, Portland-based massage therapist: Ellie Falby. Ellie has helped MP through two pregnancies, running injuries, and back pain. Plus, she is a mother of two energetic girls, so she knows first-hand that parents need some TLC now and then.
