Celebrate Mama! is an event founded by a mama in Silver Spring, MD that "celebrates mamas of all ages and stages". This has become a national event with several locations. Many of the celebrations are held this Saturday, May 3rd. Others are being held throughout the summer and fall (check the website for an event near you).
Events are being held in the following locations this weekend:
Valley Forge, PA
Powell, OH (Sat., May 10th)
I will be at the Bethesda, MD event where there will be over 100 vendors, prizes, arts and crafts, face paintings, giveaways, Mother's Day goodies, and entertainment (Rocknocerous and Miss Belle - children's entertainers). There will also be goodie bags given to the first 300 people (stuffed with 30 items). It is from 11:00-4:00 this Saturday at Bethesda Row (Woodmont Ave., between Elm and Bethesda). Rocknocerous starts at 11. Hope you can make it out to support this great effort. If you do come, please stop by and say hello to me!!
For more information on this event, visit http://www.celebratemama.com/. What a great way to celebrate being a mama and also get a jump start on your Mother's Day shopping!

Does your toddler have a hard time getting everything into the spoon? Do more peas end up on the floor than in his mouth? Does he get frustrated that he can't do it himself?
I've just found a great solution...My Plate-Mate. It is an attachment that you can add to any 8"-9.5" inch plates (the size of most kid dishes) and provides an extra lip to help them scoop up their yummies. What a great idea, right? Makes life easier for you with less mess and easier for him with more success. They are washable and so simple to pop on and off. My Plate-Mate comes in blue, pink, and white (as pictured) and run for $7.95. Check them out at http://www.littlepinkpansy.com/childrenother.htm.

With me, what you see is what you get. I will do what I tell you I'm going to do. I will honor any promises I have made and see things through to the end. I honestly don't know how any businesses survive without these principles.
(Ok, can you tell that I'm peeved at a company today for their total unreliability????) Guess I should get over it but it feels good to get it out. ;) Who has annoyed you lately?

We are delighted to be featured on the blog of one of our vendors, My Ribbon Fix. They make lots of our cute items, including the recently featured shoe bows, several of the hair accessories such as the princesses, bugs, and clippies, and other fun goodies like the keychains and the ribbon wand pretend play items. I will do a much more in-depth write-up on the owner of this business later but just wanted to put in a plug for her blog too. Check it out - http://myribbonfix.blogspot.com/.
All of her items can also be purchased directly through http://www.littlepinkpansy.com/. If you see something on her site that we don't have listed, just ask - we can get it!

Mind - always racing, always planning ahead and triple checking to make sure I packed enough diapers, snacks, toys, etc. and where is the nearest bathroom, the quickest escape route in case of baby or toddler meltdown
Hair - a little overgrown with un-dyed roots because scheduling a hair appointment requires arranging for childcare
Eyes - droopy and exhausted from the lack of sleep and mid-night awakenings and very early mornings
Ears - going a little deaf from all the screams
Mouth - a little puffy from all the baby kisses
Arms - getting surprisingly buff from carrying kids around all the time
Back - a little achy from carrying kids around all the time
Stomach - alternately very empty (from not having time to eat)v to very full (from eating all the kids' leftovers)
Legs - also getting a little more toned from all the climbing up and down two flights of stairs with kids in your arms
And not to forget the most important one:
Heart - more full of love and happiness than you can ever imagine
Toothbrushes, before the late 1930's, were made out of what type of hair?
The answer may surprise you (as it did me).
Believe it or not, they were made from beavers and horses. EWWWWW.
So now when your kids complain about brushing their teeth, tell them that it could be worse, they could be putting beaver hair in their mouths!
