Crafty parents – we know you’re out there with your embroidery floss and glue guns, waiting for the day that your kids will be old enough to start crafting alongside you. In the meantime, Nico and Zoe has the perfect little project to introduce your child to needlework.
Only once in my life have I encountered a woman who told me, "I can’t wait to get pregnant because the maternity clothes are like SOOOO CUTE!" I think she was high.
I willingly admit I’m a tooth fairy pillow hatah. I hate them. Haaaate them. I think they’re stupid and sentimental, and good God, what is wrong with sneaking in and slipping the stupid quarter under your kid’s pillow like our parents did for us anyway?
No matter how many electronic organizers they come up with, I’m still a pen and paper kind of girl. We’ve pointed out a few great multi-schedule organizers for moms, and now we’ve found another we’re liking a lot.
It’s not everyone who can pull off a single strand of choker-length pearls. Maybe the hoity-toity fashion editors of the world disagree (and I’ve seen them say as much) but without that neat little bob and the Connecticut zip code to match, you might prefer something a little more shiny.
I love the idea of hanging a cool alphabet or counting series along the walls in my daughter’s room, but alas I have a bit of a wall space challenge. As in we don’t have any.
Summer is officially over, meaning even if it’s still 85 degrees out, I’m poking around in the jewelry box to see what’s beneath the summery bangles and turquoise rings.
Leave it to a company named Least Likely 2 Breed to come up with a natural and very catchy solution for diaper rash. Hilarious mom and founder Leigh Stevens’ travel tin of Bad Ass Booty Balm has become a permanent fixture in my diaper bag. And not just because it’s fun to pull it out in public and wave it around.
On a recent trek through a big box store, I noticed that even the Lincoln Logs were made in China. Not sure how Lincoln would feel about that, but I certainly know how I feel about it.
Want a kid’s tee with an ironic hipster slogan on it? I’ve got a few ideas if you’ve got all day. So how happy was I to find a totally fresh take on pint-size hipster fashion via Canadian Rock & Rattle boutique.
To me, listening to Jazz is like ordering at an Indian restaurant. I may have no idea what’s on the menu, but I always love whatever I get. This counts for Verve Records’ Jazz for Kids: Sing, Clap, Wiggle and Shake, which serves to demystify Jazz and seriously entertain at the same time.
I’m definitely not the person to count on for remembering what developmental milestone comes when so good thing I found ebeanstalk before I bought the poor girl a rattle for her first birthday.
I first met Beth Miles, the designer and visionary behind the Ses Petites Mains label earlier in the year at a trade show, and instantly fell in love. Not with Beth per se–although she is pretty cute–but with her absolutely inspired clothes.
As a former vegan sans kids, finding fabric bags was a pain in the butt but not impossible. But afterhaving babies, I can’t be the only mom who’s eyed the easy-clean leather bag with envy.
I am just not one of those parents who believe that every moment in a child’s day must be devoted to flashcards, language drilling and hardcore mind shaping. Sometimes kids just need to kick back and chill out around some fun cartoons.
There are a few benefits to being a so-called younger mom, and one of them is that you can get away with the way fun maternity fashions available from Rock Star Moms.
I think we can all agree that we’d like our children to be skilled in the social graces, whether they’re enjoying supper with the ambassador to Switzerland on your next family ski trip to Gstaad, or at a Chuck E. Cheese birthday party.
I’m fickle when it comes to selecting a lunch box for my kids — just ask my husband how many I’ve bought, used for a week or so, and abandoned.
While others may look at the gnawed corners of our board books and question my kids’ fiber intake, I prefer to view it as…evidence of their affection for the printed word. But sadly, some of our books have been adored beyond repair
Why is it that I can find the greatest quality shirts chock full offunny sayingsand funky patterns–but the solid shirts in stores are limited to the mall store’s 2 featured ugly colors of the season, or the discount three-pack with the too-tight crew necks?
