Let Me Tell You What To Buy

Full Disclosure:

I'm now an Amazon Associate!  Wooo!  Basically what that means is this:
  • I get to make lists of awesome stuff on Amazon and post links to them on my blog.
  • If you click on those links...well, nothing happens except you get to look at some cool stuff on Amazon.
  • If you BUY something after clicking on those links, I will be rewarded for my hard work with an incredibly tiny percentage of what you spend on awesome stuff!  So buy something expensive, ok?
  • Nobody's paying me to say good things about Amazon or put their stuff in front of your face.  I'm just doing that because I love you.

I know you love Amazon.  How do I know this?  Because you live in the 21st century, you have a computer, and you are a person.  Also because I love Amazon, and I'm assuming you're just like me.  Ergo, you love Amazon.

I love Amazon because I love to shop.  What I do not love is shopping with my children.  And I always have my children when I shop.  Don't you?  Yes, you do.  If you are a mother (and you are, remember, you're just like me), this is the way life works.  With Amazon, I can buy anything I want, seriously, they have everything, and I can buy it without having to get my children fed, cleaned, clothed, napped, strapped into a car, strapped into a cart, through a store, through a check stand, and back into the car.  I can do it in my pajamas while my children watch Sesame Street.  And a few days later the things I purchased will be delivered to my doorstep.

Because you're just like me, and because I know how you value my opinion, I've taken it upon myself to create a Near Normalcy shop, tentatively titled "Let Me Tell You What To Buy."  For short, we'll just call it "Stuff You Need."  Because really.  Let me tell you what to buy.  This is stuff you need.  You're welcome.

Here's a smattering of the Stuff You Need.  (Click images to see more info.)

Stuff You Just NEED

Of course you need these boots.  Do you SEE these boots?

The Hunger Games.  I don't care that you're not 12.  You need to read these books.

Stuff Your Kitchen Needs

Ashley has one. So you need one. (Remember, you are just like me.)

Stuff Your Baby Needs

Babies like to hit stuff.

Babies like mail. A LOT. So get them their own. They'll still try to tear up yours, but it's worth a shot.

Onesies. Just, like, a million of them, ok?

Stuff Your Big Kid Needs

Dr. Seuss's Beginner Collection.
Buy them together, buy them apart, just buy them, and read them.  A lot.

Whimsical rain boots are a MUST.

You can access the entire store by clicking the handy "Stuff You Need" tab up top.  Again, you're welcome.


  1. Those are some great boots! The top ones, not the rain boots.

  2. I submit that the rain boots are also pretty great.

  3. Oh, nothing wrong with the rain boots. It's just that I would more likely wear the brown boots.

  4. The Hunger Games is a fantastic series! Pretty sure I'm going to reread it soon. I would buy more Dr. Suess books (because I feel they are an essential part of any childhood, including my nephew's) but I don't have, like, money. Good luck with all of that though :)


Leave a comment! Be nice. Sarcasm is welcome. Trolling is not.
