For Those of Us With A Lot to Say

For Those of Us With A Lot to Say

I’m one of those folks thatleaves 14 minute long voicemail messages and answers multiple choice questions with a full page essay. So you can imagine what I do with my friends’ new baby cards. While I like to think my beautifully composed messages are glue...

When I was about eight, we took a big family trip to France. I still remember how fancy I felt coming home with a suitcase full of J’aime Paris tee shirts and TinTin comic books, along with the ability to say "more chocolate croissants please," in...
Rock the Belly, Baby

Rock the Belly, Baby

Being pregnant doesn’t mean turning into Frumpo McFrump. In fact there is nothing wrong with being Sexy McSexypants or Rock McRoll when you’re with child in the 21st century. Which is why I’m totally crushing on LAB40’s custom pregger tees....

I can’t possibly have been the only new mom who experienced layette anxiety: Will it irritate her belly button? Do I cut out the tag? Do I have to wash it first? And do I really have to get that stupid overpriced detergent? Two mothers have taken the worry out...
Tees That Make You Yawn

Tees That Make You Yawn

I like to wear the truth on my sleeve and on days I cannot, I like to wear the truth on my child’s t-shirt.My truth this week? I’m tired. Which, conveniently, fits nicely with the Be Nice to My Mom, She’s Tired tee from the ever stylish online...
Who’s the Boss?

Who’s the Boss?

We all know who’s really in charge. Here’s a hint: it’s not the adult with the accusatory finger and the timeout chair. It’s the kid with the pouty lip, sweet smile, and incredibly cute face that can make us crumble in an instant. I figure, if...

I stillrememberthatsweet 18K gold ID bracelet I was given as little girl. I wore that thing every single day, turning my mom into a nervous hovering wreck for fear I’d lose it.For my own daughter, I want something similar, only a little more 2006 anda little...
It Does a Booty Good

It Does a Booty Good

I gotta say, I’m not a big fan of those pants which…well, I won’t say the brand name, but it’s the one that labels your posterior as being juicy. I don’t really need to draw more attention to my hindquarters, thankyoumovingon. But I had...
Bird Dog

Bird Dog

In my daughter’s language, everything with four legs is a dog. Cat? Dog. Lion? Dog. Cow? Dog. The only animal that isn’t a dog is our dog who is, simply, Deh. So I had to laugh out loud at this Me Giant bird dog tee that we spotted at Chloe in Style. It...
Ready Sets Go

Ready Sets Go

When it comes to baby gifts, I’m a huge fan of matching sets. Unfortunately they generally fall into one of two camps: the Little Brown Bear category, and the Trying Hard to be Funny (But Failing) category. And there is that rare category I call, Gotta Have It....
Better than Duct Tape

Better than Duct Tape

The first time they throw thebottleon the ground, it’s kind of cute. They laugh, you bend over, and like the naive parent that you are, you give it back. But after doing it fifteen times straight, you realize that it’s not so cute, and neither are...
Putting Grannies Everywhere Out of Work

Putting Grannies Everywhere Out of Work

I used to live in Northern New Jersey, proudly known as "the embroidery capitol of the United States." Seriously. There’s even a sign proclaiming the honor that’s posted on the highway running through the town.But two talented women in Santa...
