Spring fashion trends: How is this not The Onion?


We break down some of the hot fashion trends for spring that are hitting the stores, for an honest look at what we can wear, what we can’t…and what seems like designers just flat-out punking us.

So much coolness. Where to start…

I Can Practically Smell the Pineapples

This fun, handmade hula pattern skirt from mom-owned One Little Monkey is the perfect garment to herald the arrival of summer, if only because it's 180 degrees from any sort of uptight school uniform or requisite navy gym shorts. If for some crazy reason your daughter...

No More Mixed Decks

If you haven’t noticed, poker is taking over the world. And if you’ve got a spousal unit like my husband, you’ve seen enough Texas Hold ‘Em on TV that you could probably beat him at his own game.

Just in Case They Don’t Believe You

If your child is anything like mine then chances areyouwere the one telling your friends and family her first words. I mean, now she'll say "hi" and "no" in public, but when we tried to get her to express her first words to anyone but us, we were out of luck. It's too...

The Muse of Children’s Fashion

Some people you just want to hate. For example, a former model-turned-mom who still looks like a model. But when you get to know her a bit and find out she’s also nice and cool and smart and has a great kid, AND designs unbelievably awesome childrens clothes, well dammit, you just can’t be a hatah.

Pour Some Sugar on Me

While we love the monogrammed and personalized everything for kids these days, we’re always on the prowl for something that says "my mom thinks out of the box." We may have stumbled upon just that over at Sugar Roux.

Who Said Leather Was Out?

Bibs are a funny thing. You swear you never want to use them, but after a few soaking wet shirts (thanks to the drool machine known as your child), you get over it. And fast. I'm pretty sure I washed way more bibs than I thought ever existed. And then I threw half of...

Pick Your Man a PacMan

Ever struggle over what to get your husband for Father’s Day because he just won’t tell you? Fear not, adventurers: If your baby’s daddy was a child of the 80’s, he’ll love receiving a video game from his misspent youth, one at which he can actually beat the kids of today.

I May Look Like a Geek, But a Geek Who Can Find His Keys

For the style-conscious SAHD, your options are pretty slim if you want to avoid lugging your wife’s floral diaper tote around town. I couldn’t ever get stuff in and out of my messenger diaper bag, and last summer’s big vacation proved the rule that whatever you’re trying to find in your backpack—diaper, bib, camera, guidebook—will invariably be at the very bottom.

Summer Essentials for the Dad in Your Life

Since summer has quickly reared its hot and humid head here in the Northeast, I thought I’d start preparing for the season. Like most men, this entails digging out those flip flops from storage, loading up on some steaks, firing up the BBQ grill and enjoying some cool alcoholic beverages with friends.

Build Your Own Blocks

We come across quite a few personalized products at CMP. Apparently if you put someone’s kid’s name on something no matter how useless or inane (monogrammed bottle sterilizer, anyone?) it’s a surefire hit.

Do You Remember Rock ‘n’ Roll?

Remember when you were both younger and would go see bands play at the local club? If you’re like me, your kids came along and put an end to that. Is it really worth forking over seventy bucks for a sitter to see your nephew’s garage band fumble its way though Sweet Home Alabama?
