Karen’s love of all things twirly, girly, pink and princessy adorns her royally demonstrative store name, I Am the Princess, That’s Why! With hard work and dedication, and maybe just a touch of pixie dust, Karen shares her “magic” formula for retail success.
Pregnancy is one of the most joyful and exciting events in a woman’s life! Unfortunately, pregnancy often brings on intense nausea, which can strike quickly and unexpectedly. Expectant moms suffering from morning sickness, and anyone prone to motion sickness, should keep a new “friend” close at hand…Chuck the Yuck! When a pregnant mom or carsick kid gets the urge to upchuck, this disposable bag saves the day! This durable, designer sickness bag is built tough, to easily contain the mess and trap offensive odors until one can “chuck the yuck” in the trash.

When you first learn you’re about to become a mother, time stops. It’s just a split second, but it’s a very clear, unforgettable quiet out of body experience. In that single moment, you realize you are no longer just you, you are carrying a life, another. It’s a bit dizzying. The feeling that you are different than you were before that moment is ever present, until one day you realize you can’t remember exactly who you were before the baby. I don’t think there is any single event in the human experience as life changing as becoming a parent.
