This doll can make me one cup of coffee or tea at a time which means I can have a cup in the morning, a cup later in the day as a little pick me up, or a cup of tea before bed. I had been making 4 cups in my big coffee pot first thing in the morning and never getting through them before the heater switched off...or ending up with a burned pot of coffee. Madame Cafe Au Lait is a hand me down from my parents who upgraded to Madame's super special and high class older (and single) sister, Mademoiselle Cafe au Lait plus Sucre. If I could hug my new coffee maker I would. She's just that special to me.
My second new love is the Shark cordless handheld vacuum.
Why did I not buy a "dustbuster" before? Was I dumb? Missing brain cells? Or, god forbid, CHEAP, when I owned two perfectly acceptable upright vacuum cleaners? Whatever it was, it was stupid. This little baby has made cleaning up after a toddler (helllllooooooo cheerios in every crevice), a husband (how do the crumbs from making his sandwiches end up in the drawers?), a very shed-y cat, and a dog who just makes a mess by breathing SO SO SIMPLE. He and I have only been together for two days and already my floors are less crumb-y because I can whip him out with no cords to fuss with which means no outlet protectors to battle with and eventually misplace. He's easy and I like him that way. And such a cute shade of green.
I honestly believe that it's these little things that make my days so much easier and more tolerable. If I am to be in charge of this house, and this baby, day in and day out then I'll take whatever mechanical help I can get. Now, having written all this drivel, it's so obvious that I am an advertiser's dream. If any advertisers are reading, I am available for paid product reviews. I am not above that. Nope, not at all.
P.S. While on the topic of products, remember my fiasco with the Little Tikes broken train set? I sent the problem part back to them and they agreed that it was defective. It seems to only be my set and not a whole product line problem which is good and won't warrant a recall. And they sent a replacement train set PLUS another truck-type toy that Noah adores. GREAT WORK Little Tikes! Thanks for the fast response and positive customer service experience.
