Kid Style: Stay Cool for Memorial Day

Memorial Day is regarded as the “official” start of summer, and lots of families take advantage of the occasion with cookouts or trips to the beach or pool. Our Memorial Day celebration is a bit different: Every year (except last year, because toddler), we spend the whole weekend celebrating Atlanta’s Caribbean Carnival. There are parades,… Continue reading Kid Style: Stay Cool for Memorial Day

Kid Style: The Wonder of Nature with Tor Organics

My family has lived in Georgia for a total of more than a decade, but I admit, we haven’t seen as much of it as we’d like. We’re creatures of habit, and we tend to frequent the same places we’ve always gone. That’s mostly my doing, I’m sure. I tend to prefer the familiar.

Kid Style: FroBabies & Timbs

One of the things I’ve made it a point to do is make my girls feel empowered about their hair.

Kid Style: Fall Dress-Up

Logically, I know that we’re in fall. My daughter is back in school, and we’re almost in October. Still, I wasn’t quite prepared for what that meant when I strolled outside barefoot in a pair of shorts and a t-shirt a few mornings ago to put out the recycling. Because we’re in Georgia, right? And… Continue reading Kid Style: Fall Dress-Up

Child of Mine by Carter’s Makes Quality Affordable

There are a few brands that are staples when I’m shopping for my kids. They’re the brands that I know I can trust to deliver great quality and great style, over and over again. The same is true when I’m buying clothes for them. I tend to shop the same brands repeatedly because I know that I’m… Continue reading Child of Mine by Carter’s Makes Quality Affordable
