Here Kid, Fix My Hem

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.

A Pillow to Keep the Tooth Fairy Coming Back

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?

Give Me Clarity

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.

Pearls, Schmearls

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.

Into The Woods

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.

Vegan Chic: Not an Oxymoron

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.

Pigging Out

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.

PB & J, Hold the PVC

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.

For Babies With a Taste For Reading

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

Solid!

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?
