We have fun. It's the main ingredient in our home life. And with my little babes...breathable play clothes are an absolute necessity. Enter Little Babe Designs!
We've moved out of the pink phase...mostly!...and entered a fashion chapter dedicated to matching our moods. Lola's ABCD shirt could not be more fitting. She's my rocker babe. She also proclaimed that she loved this tee because it was "so soft."
Olivia's I'm With The Band sweatshirt also struck a chord. In case you didn't know, Olivia wants to be a pop star when she grows up. And yes, we have the SING soundtrack on repeat at our house.
My two cuties are in the midst of defining their fashion sense but one thing is for sure - Little Babe Designs assisted in channeling our inner rockstars. Get onboard with your little dude or dudette and rock some really rad kids fashion, stat!

We loved loved loved this week's Brightly Book: We're All Wonders. It explores the differences in all of us which came at a tremendous time as my girls have been incredibly inquisitive about hair color, skin color and beyond. This Land's End weekly book recommendation also seems custom tailored to our little family. Here are the cliff notes:
We are through and through a Seuss family. I was so excited when my girls quickly adopted this author's books into their little bedroom libraries. And let's be honest...they are an easy read on the days when you've been put through the ringer in life and as a parent. I am nothing if I am not brutally honest!
School is coming up so quick we can smell it! Let's just say we've been spending a LOT of extra time reading at night to wipe off the cobwebs. It's good to get back to our roots and the girls are enjoying a little mom and dad time sans television which...here, here to that!
Parental friends! I am so excited to be partnering with Lands' End on a special summer initiative regarding our littles...because let's face it, we all want to keep them entertained but we often forget that fun doesn't mean a three-ring circus daily. Sometimes it's about revisiting the basics. By basics I am referring to keeping learning fun and ensuring that they stay fresh as a new school year approaches. Hard to even wrap our heads around, right?
Twinning is the new black. I'm sure you knew this! Well, looks like I'm on-trend again because this past Easter my girls and I dressed from head to toe in Lola and the Boys. And it was awesome! We wore their leaf dresses which were more than comfortable to entertain in and play in.
When it comes to little lady dresses...I am rendered useless. Just absolute mush. I melt for my girls in dresses and it just so happens that Easter is around the corner, my friends! Meet Pippa & Julie: you're go-to source for the most darling dresses ever!
The hardest part of being a mom is leaving your kids. Of course, it makes the return that much sweeter. The other hardest part is when you've got 'em...what do you do with them? Yes, we are now at that age in which I often hear, "Mom, I'm bored." or "What are we gonna do today that's fun?"
Olivia is such a ray of sunshine. I think you can see it in these photos. This year has been such a big year for her growth. She's one of the funniest and brightest kindergartners I know. Naturally. Being her mom is one of the most rewarding jobs of all time. I wish I could take credit for her personality but I think Livie just has all sorts of goodness in her. She is caring and protective of her sister. She adores her father. She is thoughtful and makes little gifts for her grandparents. She works hard on her school work and she is a gifted little artist. I love seeing her creativity blossom.
...because I just need to put this out there. Some moms are excited for their kids to go back to school. I am not. :(
We just measured you and you grew two more inches! No wonder all your clothes are too short. At this rate we may have to get second jobs to keep up with your closet conundrum.
Better late than never! How did Wednesday turn into such a crazy day? Oh wait...I know! Back-to-back phone calls since 8am would have something to do with it I presume. Ahhhhhhh!
It’s hard to believe that we’re nearly halfway through the summer, but it's time to talk back-to-school. Olivia and I had a great mommy/daughter date at Woodfield Mall this past weekend to start prepping for KINDERGARTEN. I know...and I am very close to tears so do not mess with this momma.
