Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 15th because that’s the day that Diane Von Furstenberg’s children’s line will be launched at GAP. I’ve had a glimpse of some of the items, and it has me wishing that my neice’s birthday party was next Sunday instead of this Sunday.
I guess I’ll have to wait for another day… or abduct a little girl.
It’s not what you think. And it’s by complete accident that my Daily Covets are both for kids today.
Shirts4Squirts started following me on Twitter this a.m. and in checking out their profile and their website, I’m sure glad they did.
They have those super cute organic onesies that say things like “produced locally” and “peas out.” And they have t-shirts with vintage logos from some great bands… and some that don’t usually show up on kids’ shirts, like Circle Jerks, Misfits and more.
My oldest has been requesting music from his dad’s iPod for years. And now that he’s older he’s choosing his own. His very first favorite song? Nope, not Twinkle, Twinkle. None of the cute tunes by Elizabeth Mitchell either (although we listened to those A LOT!) It was “Come Together” and everytime I hear it, it makes me smile at the thought of my baby boy bobbing his head to one of the world’s biggest bands.
So, the shirt I love the most is The Beatles Abbey Road shirt. And for $23.50, it’s got to be one of my more affordable covets. Check out the rest of their cute kid collection, and see if you can’t find something to make you smile.
I’m sure you’ve noticed that animal hats for kids (and some adults… although I have some thoughts on that matter) were all the rage this past winter. My kids received some from their Aunt for Christmas this past season, and they wear them everywhere. When I say everywhere, I mean like to bed, to the basement to watch cartoons, to school even when it’s supposed to be 50+ degress out, and more.
I have fallen in love all over again with DVF this past year. I’m not sure if I’ve just been more aware, or if she has really kicked it up a notch. But the woman known originally for her knit wrap dresses, is now doing an extra special line for girls.
We need a playroom with some room to play. Is that asking so much?
Last night, we decided that since my youngest has been wanting to sleep in the “guest bed,” which also is located in his room, it might be time for him to actually stop sleeping in his crib full time.
While my oldest begged us for almost a year for bunk beds, he declined the opportunity to finally sleep in the top bunk, as we had originally intended. So we had the surprisingly easy task of taking the beds apart so that each boy has his own little twin bed. In the same room!
The task we didn’t foresee was that of what do we do with everything that had it’s place before the room had two twins bed in it – unstacked.
I've been dreaming of this look since we've found out we were having our 2nd boy!
However, we are now missing an entire wall of formerly well-used real estate in the room. Enter the need for a separate playroom, and that comes with a hitch. That room also has to suffice as our family room in our basement.
Playrooms… playrooms…I perused google images for some ideas… and while it’s not this bad (from www.realsimple.com):
It's not this bad… YET.
It’s also not this good (from kencangbanget.com):
Great playroom, but my kids are not getting a nicer TV than me!
