Are you trying to make the most out of your summer with your kids? Do you find yourself stuck in a slump, constantly doing the same activities? A friend of mine posted her ABCs of summer list. For each letter of the alphabet, there is a corresponding place to visit or activity to try. It also creates a fun checklist of things to do. You and your kids will enjoy creating your own list and crossing things off your list. You can even make a fun photo album at the end of the summer to commemorate your summer. Here’s my list
Mommin’ ain’t easy. It’s hard to hold it all together. A lot of moms keep the schedules straight. Make sure no one goes hungry. Keep the house livable. Always pack diaper bags. The list of what moms handle is ever-growing and ever-changing. All while trying to be a “cool mom.” In an effort to retain my sanity, I find that being organized helps. I also love to shop. Why is it that when I am spending money on my kids or my husband, I have no qualms about getting them the best, but when it comes to me, I tend
We had a special treat at work today thanks to Peggy on our packaging team and our new friends at Spencer’s Neighborhood and Jilly’s Cupcake and Ice Cream Bar! Peggy entered to win the whole office an ice cream social from Jilly’s on her favorite morning show, Spencer’s Neighborhood on 106.5 the Arch. Spencer, Cassiday and Brando came out to see our store, office and warehouse. They were surprised to learn we make our cloth diapers right here in St. Louis! Cassiday is a new mom to 5-month-old son, Jameson. We surprised her with a starter stash of bumGenius

One of the unique benefits of working at Cotton Babies is that we welcome babies at work. You’ve all seen the blog from the lovely Julia about bringing her son, Tommy, to work with her at the corporate offices for Cotton Babies. (If you haven’t, read it here and the update here…) There’s a whole other side to bringing babies to work that differs from the office spaces that are Cotton Babies: the retail store. I was lucky enough to be able to quit my full-time job to work part-time, and, added bonus, bring my little one to work with me!
Summer travel season is upon us! In a few short months, my husband and I will be packing up our 3-year-old and 1-year-old to go to Florida.

Here’s everything I plan on doing to have a successful trip to the beach! Sunscreen This is probably obvious, but I’d
