I love working in the children’s business, but over my 30-year career in advertising, marketing and journalism, there have been a few truths about children’s apparel and juvenile products manufacturers that I wish would change. Many key people wear too many job hats, so their focus shifts from designing, sales, shipping, manufacturing, managing and more so quickly that the workday speeds away. That often means that the marketing hat sometimes makes no headway!

Setting up a nursery can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be if you do a bit of planning. Think about what purpose the room will serve. Most certainly, it will be a sleeping space, but beyond that, what are your goals? Will this room serve as a play room as well? Will this room be shared with another sibling or nanny?

My skin is too picky with my hair styles, I tell you. Somehow, it abhors any contact with my hair! One wrong move and boom: major breakouts. The breakout that developed quickly on my forehead was a pretty clear sign to me that it’s time to do some damage control. But then there’s not much I can do but to wait for the bangs to grow out. And boy, do they take time to grow out…

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…
