Things We Like

Orbit Labels

Invented by a mom who wanted a better way to identify her kids’ bottles and travel cups, Orbit Labels are a great alternative to traditional, single-use label stickers. Orbit Labels stretch to fit almost any bottle or cup, so you can add one to the sippy cup your little one takes to daycare and add another to the water bottle your middle schooler brings to soccer practice. They’re reusable, dishwasher safe and just adhesive enough that they won’t fall off. You can even customize the color and text of the labels online. $12.95. inchbug.com

JumpIt Pass

If your creative, energetic kids want to try it all – from ballet to clay modeling to baseball – then JumpIt Pass is your ticket to everything that piques their interest in the DMV. JumpIt Pass lets you explore 3,000 of the best kids’ classes and activities in your neighborhood with a monthly membership. Best of all, there’s no commitment; you can jump around from class to class with your membership and cancel at any time. Three membership options allow you to choose a plan that fits your family. $59-$169 per month. jumpitpass.com

JSSA Family Support Group

The Jewish Social Service Agency hosts a monthly support group for those who care for anyone with a disability. The Family Support Group meets at the Ina Kay Building (200 Wood Hill Rd., Rockville, MD) on the third Tuesday of every month from 7:15-8:30 p.m. The group serves to support and provide resources for caregivers. Group members are welcome to attend as often or as little as they like. Free. Contact Katie at kgiganti@jssa.org to RSVP.

FitBark

Anyone who owns a dog will tell you they’re just as much a part of the family as anyone else and their exercise is just as important, too. FitBark lets you track your furry friend’s fitness just like you would on your own smartwatch or fitness tracker. Attach FitBark to your dog’s collar to learn everything you need to know about his activity, sleep cycle and habits. The data you garner from FitBark will motivate you to get outside with your pup and allow you to help him lead a healthier lifestyle with your family. You can also use this data to monitor behavioral changes that may help you decide when it’s time to talk to your vet. $70. fitbark.com
