The first annual Hopscotch Hustle, a hip mom and baby fashion show for the benefit of WeeCycle, was a huge success! Most importantly it raised money and awareness to help Colorado’s in-need families, and…now for the fun part, the fashions were spot-on.

All Moms want/need/must have time off, time to themselves. So on Mother’s Day, treat her with a day all to herself. Here’s how it works: Choose the day (it doesn’t need to actually be on Mother’s Day). Wrap up a Mother’s Day gift of cozy-but-fabulous spring loungewear. (NOTE: This is NOT lingerie – the goal is comfy and cool not sex-pot. You want her to feel beautiful and relaxed, not guilty because the last thing she wants to do is throw on that bustier). Throw in a great book or trashy magazine. Then, when the day arrives, make sure the house is picked up, and take the kids OUT OF THE HOUSE. Otherwise, despite your very best efforts they will still find their way over to mom. When you return…voila! A happy, relaxed mom. And we all know that happy mom = happy family.

Horror, I know.
