Layering Starts with Underwear

It’s only September and this morning, the temperature was 39! As I woke up my daughter, I reminded her it would be cold today and that she should dress warmly. “I know,” she said, as she wiped the sleepiness from her eyes. She jumped in the shower while I heated up some leftovers for herRead more »

Frozen Revisited

Regular readers of this blog will know that I’ve written about the movie Frozen twice. In my first post about this phenomenally successful Disney movie, I talked about its powerful message of two sisters who love and protect each other. A week later, I wrote about Frozen’s influence on boys. Now Mayim Bialik, actress (Blossom, Big Bang Theory),Read more »

Kids, Moms, and Grandmas All Love Lucky & Me!

It doesn’t quite seem right that I’m going to be a grandmother while I still have a child in elementary school. I know it’s illogical that I don’t feel old enough when people in their thirties can be grandparents if they have a child young and their child has a child when she or heRead more »

Bike Shorts for Back to School

I used to ride my bike every day. I’d go out every nice morning before work and just ride for miles, clearing my head in anticipation of the day ahead. I hosted bike parties on the weekend; several friends would come over in the morning, we’d ride 20 or 30 miles through the bucolic townsRead more »

Back-To-School Shopping

As you know, my family spent July cramming summer into a month because our daughter recently had surgery. I’m happy to report everything went fine and she is recuperating well. As expected, her physical activities are limited for the next few months. There will be no swimming, no Slip-n-Slide, no biking, no scootering, and there shouldn’t be anyRead more »

Care Labels for Sensitive Skin

Ava Collection

A few weeks ago, we shared info about care instructions and the importance of following them if you want your kids’ clothes to last long enough for your little ones to outgrow them. Another reason for following the care instructions came to my attention recently– A customer wrote to say that she and her daughter love the design and softRead more »

Mopeds and Mermaids

At the end of my driveway are seven girls ranging in age from 5 to 12. Four of them are sitting on miniature electric scooters, mopeds really. Three scooters are pink, one is purple. The other girls, including my daughter, who is “almost ten,” do not have scooters. This is causing a big problem in my house. TheRead more »

Proper Care Instructions for Clothing

Do you follow the care labels on your family’s clothes? I don’t, not always.  If they’re just a little bit dirty, I wash my daughter’s clothes in cold water, per the instructions. Wash in cold water seems to be the default instruction these days for all types of clothing– it’s more environmentally friendly.  But sometimes her clothes really needRead more »
