The Juppy: Review & Giveaway

Alright, I know that I haven’t been able to keep up with my blogging very much here lately, but in case you didn’t know, Aliya is 7 months old, as of today! She’s scooting around backwards and trying to learn to crawl. She’s growing up so quickly – it is absolutely amazing how fast time seems to be going. Aliya loves to stand, it’s so cute, but she’s a little wiggle-worm. Although I assumed it would be really hard, now as a single mother, to help Aliya learn to balance and everything, but it’s much easier than I had expected now that I have The Juppy.

Now, many of you have children, from newborns to adults, and so I hope that you’re all paying close attention when I tell you this – THE JUPPY REALLY DOES HELP! The Juppy is walking aid that helps your baby learn their balance and how to walk, without hurting the parents’ back by bending over.

Needless to say, most parents are very willing to bend down to help their babies learn to walk – it’s just another sacrifice that we make for our children – I figured it was something that was inevitable… Until I receive The Juppy in the mail!

The Juppy does the following:
  • Teaches baby balance and confidence.
  • Reduces the chance of accident and injuries.
  • The only baby walker that fits in a purse!

And I have been able to see each of these things, in real life. I carry The Juppy around in my diaper bag, but sometimes when I don't take my diaper bag places, I really do just put it right into my purse! Aliya is in it all of the time, and she has yet to fall down - it makes catching her so much easier than if I am just holding her hands. And she doesn't run into things like when I had her in a regular walker.

No kidding, I am so thankful that I was able to receive The Juppy. It's helpful to, both, Aliya and me. Teaches her and relieves me from spending so much time crouched over to help her.

The Juppy is available in black, pink or blue. I chose the pink. Also, with The Juppy, you have the option of getting a name monogrammed on it.

Also, on Aliya's Juppy, we were able to have her name (or nickname, in our case) put on it. Although you can not see it in the pictures that I have posted, it is there. I will try to get some pictures of it on here as soon as I am able.

I believe that my favorite thing about The Juppy is that Aliya enjoys it. Aliya and I get 'mommy and daughter' time, she gets to learn things, and she is happy while she's in it. So it's a win, win, win!

WHAT YOU WIN: The winner can choose a Juppy in the color of his/her choice (pink or blue) and have a name monogrammed on it as well. That's almost a $37 value!

Short and Sweet

Well, Josh and I are getting divorced. Things had been going downhill for a while, and we've decided that there is nothing left to save.
He and I are both okay with it.

Sorry this post is so short, but I have a lot of things to get done. I will do my best to update later..
