If you like to support companies that give back, well we DO! One of our top priorities when starting was to become established enough to pass along some of our good fortune. Due to the overwhelming support of our customers, reps & friends, we’ve finally gotten there.

For our first BooBoo blog post, we thought it would be a good idea to share with you how the idea of BooBoo Kids came about. We talk about it a bit on our web site, but want to go into a little more detail on here. It’s a question that we get asked often, so here’s how it happened…

It all started out as a normal sunny day in August until I received a phone call that my 3-year-old great niece fell off the couch and broke her arm. Then, the very next weekend, I was out with my husband and we got a call that my 4-year-old granddaughter was in the Emergency Room with a broken leg.

You have to play to win.
A little bit of luck…a lot of persistance.

Driving to work today I heard on the radio that the owner of Marriott’s son, heir to the Marriott millions, won 109 million dollars playing the lottery. There was a debate as to whether or not that was fair. My gut reaction was to think “that’s not fair; he’s already rich and doesn’t need the money!” After thinking about it for 10 more seconds I had to laugh and remember I rarely play the lottery and the lottery isn’t biased so I guess you have to play to win.

Well…..in case you’re wondering how my mompreneurhood all began, here ya go.

TORONTO – Seasons UV, the makers of 50++ UPF swimwear, Real Kids Shades and Tail Wags Helmet Covers are together promoting safety this summer by offering useful tips to parents. One of the biggest concerns is sun exposure when children are out playing. Seasons UV and Real Kids Shades are encouraging parents to provide sun protection, beyond sun screen, by highlighting the importance of proper clothing and sun glasses.

Here is a link (http://www.cpsc.gov/businfo/frnotices/fr11/stayleadrev.pdf) to the Federal Register Notice announcing the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) decision to extend the existing stay of enforcement on testing and certifications of the total lead content in children’s products (except for metal components of children’s metal jewelry) until December 31, 2011.

I am a mom on a mission, and my passion is to not just take measures for myself and my family to make this world a better tomorrow, but rather to inspire and assist other moms in doing so. Being the founder and organizer of the company Greenbuds, my mission is to enable all parents with budget restraints (and who doesn’t have any, in today’s economy!) to still give the best to their children.

We had a great show in Miami, and although it is not a “kids show” the retailers were looking for the next best thing for summer. Sun protection and kids seem to be going hand and hand and is now available in our newest mom and dad lines. Cannot wait until ENK and ABC, looks like its going to be a great 2011 for Seasons UV!

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.

Linda Byerline, matriarch of Happy Heinys, the family-owned-and-operated business that for over nine years has designed and manufactured reusable cloth diapering products, . . . quite simply does not take crap from anyone! I’m happy to know this highness of Heinys, as I greatly admire her commitment to environmental issues and natural parenting, her compassion and actions that help others at home and abroad, her support of made in U.S.A, pride, empowerment of other working mothers and her super-mom powers as a there-for-them wife and parent. Plus, seeing her makes me, well, happier!

It was the strangest thing… I was reading through tweets one day and came across this from Krista Colvin (@KristaColvin)

Normally I wouldn’t click on links because I don’t have a lot of time. I’m so easily distracted that I literally have 19 tabs open in 2 different browsers. I even downloaded a third browser “just in case.” Anyway, back to the point…

There are so many ways to spruce up baby’s nursery or any room sustainably. A new room update doesn’t require spending a dime if you gather up a few eco-chic tips!

An easy and natural way to create atmosphere in any room is through scent. Consider the delight from delicious kitchen aromas or the smell of a bubble bath. At the May 1st Eco-Chic Expo in Seattle, exhibitor Satsuma Designs will help guests create these scents to turn each day into a springtime stroll. Here’s a little recipe they’ve cooked up.
