I take it anywhere that I go that we will be staying for a while. I take it to church with me and leave it in the nursery until I have to go in to feed Rose.
It helps little ones "hold" baby and baby feels more supported and secure. This is our little friend Andrew holding Rose on his first visit to see her!

First cut the ends off and set the watermelon on one end. I tried a couple of different knives to see which one cut through the easiest.
Then I continued to cut off all the rind.
I was surprised how easy and how fast this went and how little waste there was of the actual fruit.
Another good thing I noticed was that very little juice was lost until I started cutting into chunks. This made for a much easier clean-up compared to my usual method.
This was a perfectly ripe melon and we enjoyed it very much. I will dread this chore less now!
Be sure to read more great tips at Tammy's Recipes for Kitchen Tip Tuesday.

The sling allows you to carry the baby in several positions. Rose loves to "ride" like this...
This light blue one is a Nojo brand. You can find them at Wal-mart. We bought it recently at a yard sale for $2.
This is a picture of me carrying Rose at a recent Festival. After the first few minutes of looking around and smiling at people she was happy to snug in and sleep for a long time. I just can't say enough about how comfortable it is to "wear" your baby this way. I was also able to protect her from the sun. The black one is a SlingEZee by Parenting Concepts. This one is my favorite. It comes in small, medium, and large. I was also blessed to find this one second hand several years ago.
I plan to join Sarah at Fiddledeedee for more favorite things!

Here's the really bad before picture. It's a wooden, wallpaper covered valance with some sort of gold painted thing on top. Nice, huh? Yep this is what we look at when we're goin' potty!
Here's the pretty fabric that I chose with lots of helpers...I bought about a yard and a half and folded it in half like this.
Next I pinned on this pretty fringe and sewed it on the bottom of the folded fabric.
