Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were twirling in a teacup in Us Weekly (7/26/10) and OK! Magazine (7/26/10), enjoying a day at Disneyland with their sons Zuma and Kingston. Zuma’s red and white striped BabyLegs® were the perfect complement to his Mickey Mouse ears, proving once again that this family knows how to have fun with fashion!

I remember when I was working in my corporate job having to take a personal day here and there to take care of “life stuff”. It was no big deal. I alerted my manager, made out my list of to-do’s and off I went. Mission accomplished.

Fast forward to mompreneurship. I still have the same, if not more, life stuff. I still have my list of to-do’s. I even alerted myself that I need to take a day off to complete these tasks by marking them on my calendar. Yet they either remain undone or, worse, I spend the day feeling guilty that I’m not “at work”.

About three years ago, a trio of talented moms, Dina Kutinsky, Samanta Lieberman and Amy Multack, gave “peace” a chance by using the universally-recognized symbol as inspiration for their Peace-of brand. Offering one-pieces and tees for babies through tweens, the mod and punny pieces sport a twist on the ‘60s anti-war icon, in which the peace sign means both “piece” and “peace.” The symbol, first designed by the British nuclear disarmament movement, is now disarming kids’ wear with cute graphic statements, including “Master Peace”, “Peace of Work”, “Peace-ful”, “Peace of Cake” and “Inner Peace.”

Children are naturally open to art and love to express themselves by painting, drawing, and sculpting with clay. They are also fascinated and inspired by the creations of others. Displaying artwork with appealing colors and content can help develop children’s early appreciation of art, and make a house feel like home. The Giggle Guide® looks to the heart of art from several brands that specialize in creations designed to delight and capture children’s imaginations. Our gallery includes engaging works from J. Austin Ryan, Queen of the Trailer Park, Renditions by Reesa, and Green Frog Art.

Owner Linda Byerline of Happy Heinys says, “For many years retailers and consumers asked us for a Starter Diapering Kit. We delayed doing this because we did not want to have the waste that a box would create. Finally we found the solution in the Happy Heinys Starter Kit that is 100% reusable!”
