let your little ones go wild

I have a matching bracelet set for Birdie and for me, but the problem is I’m afraid to actually let her wear her delicate golden bracelet chain. I was just thinking there has to be a more durable option, right? Turns out there is – and it’s super boho chique too. Check out these leather […]

Did you know we can even get stylish clothes for our kidlets via subscription box? It works a lot like Stitchfix. Give Mac and Mia some info about sizes (up to 6T), […]

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, […]

One of the silliest – and enjoyable – gifts Birdie received over the Holidays was the ability to turn into a mermaid whenever she feels like it! It’s easier than drinking a magic potion or singing like the Little Mermaid. All you need is a Blankie Tail. Available in different colors and made of the […]

snuggling with the foxes

Well, our warm winter is finally over. The “cold snap” has arrived, and it’s a doozy. Just in time for the boring, bitter, dark month of January too? So not fair. Sometimes you need a little pampering to get through the hard stuff. And in my Northern clime, winter definitely qualifies as hard stuff. So […]

Valentines’ Day, and even though you may not think you need to worry about it now, let’s just think for a second. Are you ever prepared for Valentine’s Day?

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 […]

timeless summer evenings with your girls

For the most part, we always went with the cheap pajamas from Target. I suppose the habit starts at birth, when Birdie needed several sets to get through diapers, potty training, the flu, etc. Kids and pajamas are a tough partnership in the early years. Birdie is now 6, but we never really changed our ways, but then […]

Pampering your youngest babies is as natural as breathing. Those sweet-smelling, warm little bodies need all the love, softness, and comforting possible. I suppose that’s why baby blankets, swaddlers, and baby linens in general are so numerous, and why I want them to be extra beautiful! Like these finds from Milkbarn Kids (formerly Zebi Kids). […]

When I was pregnant with Birdie, I was obsessed with knitting her as many things as I could before she arrived. It was the best way I could think of to show my love for her when I had no other way except for hugging my own belly. Now, of course, if I have time […]

It’s the week before Christmas, and everything over here is a flurry! Everything except the weather that is. It rained yesterday. In Minnesota. In December. We’re all very very confused around here. But, it means hilarious gloves like these mitts from Warmsters are just the right garb to keep up with the warmer temperatures. (Because […]
