I See a Cool Preggo Shirt in Your Future

FortuneteesHey moms-to-be: Tired of the same-old "I used to be a parachute" t-shirt offerings at your local maternity store? Looking for a clever way to tell the world about your upcoming arrival? Well, I predict a successful purchase in your future.

De-Snot in Style

De-Snot in Style

Frog When you think of baby items that make you go "awwwwwwww…." humidifiers don’t exactly spring to mind. But that’s only because no one ever thought to disguise that big plastic eyesore as a panda bear.

Even Your Walls Will Thank You

Even Your Walls Will Thank You

LoripcowWe try so hard to decorate our child’s room with extra special pieces that we love and cherish. We don’t expect our kiddo to stop and stare at the beautiful fairy painting or vintage plane poster. Most likely, they fulfill our own obsessive need for everything to match.

All That Glitters

All That Glitters

I'm not sure if it's because I've been living in Mississippi too long (the pizazz capital of the world), or if I'm really a 3-year-old trapped in a woman's body - but in either case, I heart glitter. However, as a new mama and a domestic engineer, I realize that it...

Attention Nursing Mamas: Step Away From The Poncho

Attention Nursing Mamas: Step Away From The Poncho

While I was a poncho-wearing breastfeeder myself, let’s face it – ponchos are a little last year. And unless you like to wear wool in June, they’re not so great for temperature moderation in the warmer months (which is pretty much all but two, for my fellow Southern state dwellers).

Jesus Christ, Fashion Superstar

Jesus Christ, Fashion Superstar

JesusjoggersWe’ve come to that time of year when all not-so-good Christians, including me, make their annual pilgrimage to the big house for cleansing and renewal. But just because I don’t go to church on a regular basis doesn’t mean I don’t think Jesus was someone we could all learn from.

Blow Your Refund (or at least part of it)

We know you probably already have every single penny of your tax refund budgeted for the rest of the fiscal year. And being like-minded moms, we bet you most likely didn't set aside any part of that on something for yourself. So today we've decided to give you a few...

All the Small Things

All the Small Things

Being the big tall girl that I am, I tend to gravitate towards clunky heels and big bags. However, when it comes to men (height people, HEIGHT) and jewelry, I'm a sucker for small and fabulous. So, I've set aside a little bit of my surprisingly large tax refund for a...

Go Ahead, Put Your Refund Right Into Your Purse

... Or Diaper bag. Because most likely you keep your wallet where you keep your diapers. Remember when you rocked your it-bag Balenciaga? Your Louis Vuitton Speedy? Your whatever else was hot and hip prebaby? Remember when you actually followed fashion? HA! I know....

Mama Mags, Eat Your Heart Out

Mama Mags, Eat Your Heart Out

Tvbutton_11If you haven’t figured it out yet, we here at Cool Mom Picks like underground, lesser-known, but just as fabulous cool stuff. Nothing against the mainstream parenting paraphernalia, but there’s something about reading a plainly printed, hand folded zine that makes us giddy. It doesn’t hurt that they feature top-notch work from writers slash parents.

Where the Heck is Wyoming?

Where the Heck is Wyoming?

Mappuzzle_1It seems I’ve got a little puzzle glutton on my hands. With a few handy 25-piecers, she reaps intellectual benefits and I get a good 20 minutes of quiet time. However, all that is null and void on car rides since, I’m pretty sure even a genius couldn’t put puzzles together in any type of moving vehicle.

From Briefcase to Diaper Bag

From Briefcase to Diaper Bag

Total180
As if the shock of having a newborn wasn’t enough, I think I might have had a harder time adjusting to the change in job from sassy professional gal to stay-at-home-mom. While I was surrounded by a gaggle of career mothers, few could share in my loss of what once was my very precious work.

I’ll Take My Sidewalk to Go

I’ll Take My Sidewalk to Go

AuntartSure, sidewalk chalk is fun and all. That is, until the rain comes. Then youTvbutton_9 are stuck with the same old coloring book or your fancy magnetic art board. But thanks to Gretchen at Aunt Art, you can now bring your sidewalk with you wherever you go.

Cute as Kit

Cute as Kit

Kitbooks_1After reading Winnie the Pooh and Tvbutton_7 Curious George two times a day for how many weeks, I think we are all ready for a change. So I ordered a set of Kit Allen’s children’s books.

Tastes Like Chicken

Tastes Like Chicken

MaharfeltfoodI have a great set of hand-me-down dishes from my childhood ‚Äì plates, cups, teapots, silverware — the works. However, there’s one big problem when my girls try to have a pretend picnic or tea party: no play food to speak of.

Once Upon a Time There Was This MP3…

Hard to believe, but your computer’s MP3 player can be more than a repository of embarrassing one-hit wonders and Lite FM ballads. It can also be a source for encouraging your children’s love of literature.

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...
