Chewbeads: Forget about telling them “No”!

Chewbeads for babies
Easier than teaching them not to!

I found this online the other day (I think possibly through Stumble) and meant to blog about it then.  This is a company who specializes in teething jewelry for children.  Let’s just stop and think about that for a second…

Infants and toddlers may have a tendency to tug, pull and chew on their mothers’ jewelry.  It may be toxic and unsafe for them.  So – someone actually made jewelry that can be worn WITH THE INTENT of having them chew on it.

So, put on your color-coordinated fashion teething ring and don’t get upset when I look at you funny in the store because your child is a raging, temper-tantrum mess on the floor as a result of never getting accustomed to the word no.

About Mama's a Mess

Who am I and what am I doing here? Well, at the end of the day I'm a mother and a wife, a lover of classic monster movies and comic books, of music, TV and movies. I'm a sucker for pop culture. I'm a fangirl. I'm an artist. As my husband always puts it, "Baby, you're a mess!" I have a penchant for creating and collecting. I feed my brain with a mix of anything from hot rods and pin-ups to handmade and natural. I like to dig in the dirt and grow things but sometimes picture myself doing it like Donna Reed. I will always, always choose to wear a dress first. I am head over heels in love with my husband and have a fantastically crazy life with him.
