I won’t tell her, but my wife was the one who found these labels — although it was by way of her sister. Anyway, our neighbors to the north got something right — Mabel’s Labels are awesome. At first, I wasn’t in love with them because I found them to be on the dull side — I wanted labels that had multicolored designs and funky shapes that made the boy seem like he was going to be an artistic genius.

I’m not a tree hugger. I’m not a hippie. I’m not in love with the organic movement, but as noted in the prior post, I think BabyGanics Dish Dazzler helps make washing bottles a little less miserable.
