Soapbox AND Sharing Saturday

I thought it would be fun to share a new store I've been checking out lately.  It's very possible that I've been living under a rock and you've been shopping there for years, but it's new to me.  It's called Modcloth and they have some fun, unique clothing and accessories. 


Here's a quick peek at some of the things I'm admiring.  Love the bold orange shirt.  What a sweet modest swimsuit.  I like a pretty feminine cardigan.

These next ones are all in the sale section.  I'm a sucker for a cute jacket and who doesn't love yellow?  Love this classic cardigan.  They even have cool wallpaper.  That's awesome.

If you feel like doing a little fun spring shopping just head over to ModCloth.com.  See you there.

Okay, before you go we have a reader who needs some help/ideas.  Here's the prob.

My daughter is 19 months old and we used to live in a small apartment with no tub. She actually loved taking showers when she got too big and squirmy for the sink. We recently (a month ago) moved into a larger apartment and it has a tub! She is deathly afraid of taking baths now. I even tried a shower, but no go. She will go in it without water, but if I reach for the faucet she starts crying and shaking. I have been sponge bathing her and even that makes her cry and try to run away! I have had a month of fighting to take a bath or sponge bathe and I just don't know what to do.
I have been advised to:

- give her her binky-didn't help
- go in the tub with her-she didn't care, she wanted out!
- make sure there are lots of toys/bubbles-she wanted nothing to do with them
- test the water-as always, I have the bath thermometer and I test with my wrist

There is nothing I can think of that could have made her afraid. No slipping, falling, or oopsies about the water temp.  I hope someone else has been through this or can give me some advice.

If you have some advice for Lauren please leave a comment here.  Thanks for dropping in!
