icosahedron playhouse? maybe!

Thumbnail image for icosahedron playhouse? maybe!

I’m a bit obsessed with geometry right now, and icosahedrons are right up my alley. So my eyes kind of bugged out of my head when I stumbled onto this sweet little house! Ok, yes, it’s a doghouse. But it’s a DIY Doghouse, you could make it any size you want right? They even tell you […]

dino handles and smiley mugs

Thumbnail image for dino handles and smiley mugs

In keeping with my need to anthropomorphize everything around me – and I do mean everything – I had better highlight these amazing mugs from Creations Li. Based in Canada, these mugs from Creations Li will give you such a chuckle. Seriously, I would rather drink my hot beverage out of one of these than some […]

play on the floor mats!

There are so many ugly playmats for little ones, and then you see something gorgeous like these and realize there’s hope after all! I’m particularly fond of Babee and Me’s map playmat – because it can serve so many functions. Babies as giants, car races, fantasy rescue missions, this mat will grow with your kiddo way […]

ceramic sippy cup?

Plastic sippy cups. Necessary evil, bane of our existence, or thing of the past? One of the most annoying accessories of young kids are those dang sippy cups! Now, I know, ceramic anything is not high on a mom’s list of must-haves when leaving the house with a kiddo. But at home, at mealtime, maybe […]

our new favorite backpack, like, ever

Thumbnail image for our new favorite backpack, like, ever

Birdie came home from school last week with a very broken backpack. We’re not sure what happened, but somehow the strap was completely ripped loose, with a gaping hole where it was originally attached. Luckily, we had a couple of days without school to find a replacement (the only bonus to faculty retreat days!). Luckily, […]

pompoms and blankets go beyond cute

Thumbnail image for pompoms and blankets go beyond cute

PIck a subtle, sophisticated palette, throw in some pops of super on-trend color, and maybe a tribal print. What do you get? The perfect hipster baby gift. Each handmade cotton/wool blend blanket from Little Louise NYC is the perfect size for strollers, with beautiful wool pom poms giving a little flounce around the edges. The […]

origami playhouse

I saw a T-shirt the other day that fits my Monday mornings almost perfectly: it said “I can’t adult today”. Anyone with me? Let’s go hide out in Origanid’s French Playhouse. You bring the hot cocoa, I’ll bring the pillows and blankets. Seriously, if the cost wasn’t quite so splurge-worthy, I’d probably be ordering one […]

the kids bike you didn’t know you needed

Thumbnail image for the kids bike you didn’t know you needed

There are so many things, impractical, slightly unnecessary things, that one could want: ceiling lights shaped like clouds, the perfect holiday dress, wooden pianos the size of a toddler, yet another children’s book. Sometimes though, dreaming about those impractical things is really part of the fun of it all. Take these precious bikes from Republic […]

munching with your munchkins

Toddlers and food. They may be cute, and say funny things, and squish you tight over and over, but toddlers can be little terrors when it comes to food! I can’t guarantee that the Munch Eco Hero Feeding Set will calm the savage beast that is your toddler saying nononononono. But, at least it’s cute enough […]

Thumbnail image for with a name like blooey hobbel horse …

It’s got to be interesting. This rocking horse is more than interesting, it’s pretty much awesome. If you love a more modern look, then Blooey’s Hobbel horse clearly falls in that camp. Plus, it looks lightweight, portable, and potentially indestructible. Think it would work indoors and outdoors? On top of that, just think how easy […]

It’s that time of year:: when all those new and improved school things we buy for the kiddos are about to get lost forever. Unless, of course, we take the time to label each. and. every. silly. little. thing. Let me share a little secret with you. Bright Star Kids labels makes the process easy, […]

save your cents with these piggies & more

Thumbnail image for save your cents with these piggies & more

Birdie found a stash of spare change in the car today, and spent a significant amount of time counting, and sorting her riches into one of her piggy banks. It turns out we have several – thanks in part to a favorite paint-your-pottery shop in our favorite weekend spot. One of these days I’m going to […]

6 baby must-haves for summer time

Thumbnail image for 6 baby must-haves for summer time

Summer is such a wonderful time, but when you have a baby it can sometimes feel so much more complicated! Dragging things around, remembering everything you need or might need! The obvious esssentials were what always ran through my head first. Things like pacifiers, snacks, diapers, wipes and changing gear, and sunscreen. (I always forget the […]

a new balance bike system: Leg&Go Bikes

Thumbnail image for a new balance bike system: Leg&Go Bikes

I was watching Birdie practically fly down the street with her new bike the other day (we just graduated to a 20″ salmon pink hottie), and thinking how far she’s come. We started with a balance bike when she was around 3, and I can’t recommend them enough. It was almost exactly a year ago […]
