Mother of invention

I get why moms are often inventors. When you have a baby it’s often hard to believe there’s nothing different than what already is. Like the one size boppy. Really? Give me a break. Nothing that fits around your torso without elastic is one size fits all. Or how there’s really no good solution for wiping a baby’s snotty nose. I almost cut Wilder’s minky dot blanket into little baby handkerchiefs last week as a means of using something gentle for that boogery mess.
I have lots of invention ideas (cut to me on Shark Tank rocking Day Four hair in yoga pants with a little spitup on my Yankees shirt peddling babychiefs for the snotty baby or jumbo bumbos for the thick legged little ones. Getting Wilder out of it requires a shoe horn.)
My latest is an up-the-back diaper for the amoxicillin poos. If you’ve had a baby on antibiotics you get this. If not, you’re thankful I’m not elaborating.
I have yet to figure out how to create a diaper with a special extender but surely it’s possible! Stay tuned …

Wilder chillin in the bouncy seat which is too small although he’s only four months old. Someone invent a long bouncy already!

About Amanda Jean Elliott

I am a joyful believer in Jesus Christ, a mother, a sister, a writer, a maker of gluten free roux and a style editor. I love my son Wilder and the wild life that comes with a 4-year-old who has the energy of a pack of wolves. I also love naps (a lot). I love to cook and create my favorite dishes without gluten not because I'm trendy and anti-gluten so much as it makes me feel like I've been run over by a pack of wolves. I teach 5th and 6th grade girls Sunday School and have a classroom of the greatest girls I could imagine. Girls who often teach me more than I teach them. I believe these girls and many others are the spark to start a fire for The Lord the likes of which this world has never seen. I see more and more girls learning about more than just who God is ... but, learning about who God says THEY are. It is my prayer for every woman to know without doubt that we have a good good Father in heaven and whatever is not right on this earth, He will make right in this life or the next.
