C-Ellabrate Good Times

C-Ellabrate Good Times

It’s almost hard to imagine, but children’s music hasn’t always been as wide ranging as it is today. However, there were some early pioneers, like the wonderful Ella Jenkins. Widely recognized as “the first lady of children’s...
Sleep, Beautiful Sleep

Sleep, Beautiful Sleep

I remember browsing the web for infant sleep sacks when I was pregnant and thinking, great concept, lame-o execution. It’s not that they didn’t work, it’s just that they were…how do I say this delicately…ugly? Or plain at best. Finally...
Pants Begone

Pants Begone

The only way I can get my daughter to wear a dress is to tell her we’re going to a party. Otherwise, she’s all about the pants. And honestly, I can’t really blame her; it’s a bitdifficult to get all rough and tumble in a sweeping lacy pink...
Big is Always Better (At Least With Jewelry)

Big is Always Better (At Least With Jewelry)

During pregnancy, you might be obsessing with all things small. But when it comes to jewelry and a few other things in life, I’m the first one to admit that bigger is definitely better. Take the stunning enamel glass necklaces from Seattle-based Orange Peel...
Rawkin’ Before They’re Tawkin’

Rawkin’ Before They’re Tawkin’

There’s no shortage of kids clothing with attitude if you know where to look. As in, get out of the malls and hit the web (with Cool Mom Picks being your first stop, of course). The 100% cotton outlaw pants from the Ramones-fans-turned-parents behind Babies Rawk...
The Wonderful, Terrible Twos

The Wonderful, Terrible Twos

Those of us who have ever dated a musician (ahem) can agree that deep down, they are all children. Which is why it’s perfectly logical that the faces of a hip act like, say, The New Amsterdams, also are the minds and mouths behind a fantastic new kids’...
More Mommies To Love

More Mommies To Love

In a world where Heather has two mommies, as do her friends Olivia, Aiden and Sam, we think it’s high time the old standby “I love my mommy” onesie took on a 21st century twist. The I love my moms shirt from the always wonderful Wry Baby comes in...
Fighting the Winter Blahs With Baubles

Fighting the Winter Blahs With Baubles

While Spring is still a good several blizzards off, at least its start will happen in this calendar year. Which means that already my head is onto woven bags, lightweight trenches, and updates to the wardrobe that don’t include black, brown or grey. So I’m...
My Kind of D.I.Y.

My Kind of D.I.Y.

While I’m a fairly crafty person, there are a few things I would never attempt. Like items I might actually wear out of the house. Then again, considering how picky I can be about my accessories, I admit that the thought has crossed my mind. Thanks toAnnie...
Son-of-a-Kind

Son-of-a-Kind

Since my kids (as we all feel) are like no others, it’s nice to stock their wardrobe with clothes that are the same way – like the one-of-a-kind shirts from Havins Originals. Inspired by good old rock and roll and a love for vintage design,...
Gettin’ Jiggy With It

Gettin’ Jiggy With It

There seem to be two schools of thought when it comes to decorating for kids: You can go super kid-like, or you can find adult looking stuff in miniature sizes. Basically, Playskool or Eames. Leapfrog or Oeuf. But now there’s a whole category in the...
