I have made a terrible, terrible mistake and crushed the feelings of my pretty and sensitive little girl.

I stopped getting my daughter her Citrus Lane box. She’s five and a half years old.  I thought it was time. We bought her backpack for kindergarten this week. I thought she would be old enough to understand. I thought it would be ok.

It was not. At all. The kids did eventually strike a sharing deal but really, it wasn’t worth that heartbreak. It’s hard to grow up! I think I’ll add a year to her account and switch the profile to baby, when it’s time. When she’s in school she won’t have to know she’s missing out… She understands getting different gifts, this was just an entirely different thing!

May 2014 Citrus Lane Reviews

Also, as a result of child juggling/soothing, all our photos are on our craft tablecloth!


CUE THE TEARS. I really thought she would be ok not getting Citrus Lane. Wrong wrong wrong. It is maybe obvious that my son loved everything too and wasn’t too keen on sharing. They share everything. But usually have their own Citrus Lane.


This was really a fantastic box!! My daughter keenly observed that the magnifying glass pictured was not the one received. She told me they should have sent the flower magnifying glass for her. IMG_4485

Melissa & Doug Mambo Snake Magnifying Glass ($6.48) This is so cute. We’ve been playing a lot of nature detective, and the kids will love watching the ants through it. We will have a lesson on not frying living things, I promise.


Goodbyn Hero ($12.95) Various Goodbyn items appeared in the boxes this month, and we got the full-size kit. I was happy to see this appear at the start of back to school shopping season!IMG_4488

That there was a pink version that my daughter didn’t get? That would match her new backpack? Did not make my life easier.IMG_4486

Hape Sand & Sun Watering Can ($6.48) The matching can in yellow has been added to my Amazon cart. My kids adore watering cans. My daughter in particular has played in the sink since before she turned 2. She’s a water baby.IMG_4489

Jasmine Seven Fresh Feet Wipes for Kids ($3.32) Ummm I totally use these on my own feet during the summer. I prefer walking sandals. Stealing!IMG_4490

Back to Nature Snack ($1) Love Back To Nature. LOVE! I just wish I knew why it is so hard to buy Crazy Bugs Mac & Cheese (the best best BEST mac & cheese out there).  And yes, we do totally…IMG_4492

Use to get them. Errrrr I also buy Back to Nature products on Vitacost, and you can get $10 off $30 if you sign up with Vitacost Rewards. Who knows why they changed the name??? MEH on the first order code because I already shop there.  Here’s all the Back to Nature products at Those little chocolate cookies are tops.

Our May Citrus Lane box was worth over $30, and we loved everything in it. I am purchasing the watering can, and will probably use the code MOMMY20 (exp 5/31) to save 20% on my shop order, and just pay the shipping, in order to get the lunchie. I may find stuff for baby that I must have, of course!

    Do you have Food Lions? I’m fairly certain I have seen that Mac and Cheese you mentioned there before. I know I’ve seen in fairly often somewhere. I can’t eat it so I didn’t take note of it but I remember seeing it and thinking it was cute. lol.

      No, but I may ask the manager at my Safeway to special order it. Publix does that, I would think Safeway would too? I would totally buy the case from them, especially if it’s much cheaper than online. It’s getting hard to find, and I wonder if it’s discontinued. We used our last box today, which is sad. It really is the most delicious mac & cheese I have ever had. Back to Nature isn’t active on social media as far as I know. They’re a total mystery.

        Annie’s makes a really good all natural gluten free mac and cheese but me and lactose don’t get along very well. So, I don’t buy it. Well, I do buy it on occasion but not often. I have to REALLY want cheese to make it worth the tummy ache (which with my being pregnant I HAVE really wanted cheese a lot…I just keep buying lactose free Cabot cheese and goat cheese and making my own gluten free, lactose free mac and cheese…which I now want since i’m thinking about it lol).

    My son would have loved this box. They keep sending him items for a two year old. I just signed my two year old up and upgraded my four year old box to five like the customer rep suggested so let’s see how that goes.
