Oh Those Clever Dutch

I love poking around European kids shops because the sensibility is just a little…different than ours. Think fewer fire trucks appliqués, and more apples on stilts doing ballet while wearing French poodle masks. Or something like that. Zazou is a fabulous Netherlands-based shop featuring creative duds for the under-four set, from independent designers that we are swooning over. Now let’s just pretend for a minute that the US dollar was actually worth something these days. My shortlist would include the knitted hoodie dress from Kidscase, raglan tees from Petit Louis, and pretty much everything from the Dutch Design Bakery....

Take a Hike, Tinkerbell

I’m always looking for books for my daughter featuring strong female protagonists. They don’t have to be fist-in-the-air feminist characters, but they don’t have to be princesses dreaming of marrying princes, either.

A Pinch of Flower

With each change of season I feel the call to update my jewelry drawer. It’s a sickness, I know, but with Spring in the air, I just can’t be asked to accessorize with the same old same old. Why, even the suggestion of it is shocking.

We’re Not Only Cool, but a Little Crazy to Boot

We here at Cool Mom Picks understand the important role of the television in your home. How else would you pee in peace and have a great excuse to put off that last load of laundry? But, we also know that sometimes, the boob tube can begin to rule the household and suck away precious brain cells that could be put to better use. So, in recognition of "TV Turnoff Week" (officially April 24-30), we will be running a variety of cool picks that are just as good (if not better) than your regularly scheduled programming. They’ll be marked...

A Cause We Can All Rally Behind

Dianetics states that moms in labor "maintain silence in the presence of birth to save the sanity of the mother and the child and safeguard the home to which they will go." Um. Democrat or Republican, red state or blue, I think we can all agree on one thing: Katie Holmes is out of her freakin’ gourd. Which is why we laughed at loud at the designs at freekatie.net. This shirt pretty much says it all....

The Stylish Tushie

I never thought twice about diapering my son with the eco-not-so-conscious disposable diaper. I have to admit, I thought that cloth diapers were still big cotton towels that required safety pins, manual dexterity, and a whole lot of free time.
