Go Buy Now! Splendid Littles for Target
By

My heart skipped a beat today on a Target excursion for toilet bowl cleaner and graham crackers. I’m a long time fan of the Splendid brand for kids (we have a striped long sleeve waffle tee I’ve forced both boys to wear until it reached crop top proportions, for example), but I only buy Splendid on deep discount because spending $50-$80 on single items of clothing for my rapidly growing kids makes me want to either a.) vomit or b.) have another boy to make my outrageous clothing purchases more cost effective.

Back to School: Best Toddler Backpacks
By

If my mom had said this to me ten years ago, or, I’m embarrassed to admit, maybe even 5, I totally would have rolled my eyes. But life since having children has flown by at an alarmingly fast (and heart wrenching) clip. . . nd now I have purchased (gasp!) a backpack (!). For my little son who is quickly growing into a big boy and is going off to his first day (sob) of early learner school next Tuesday. . . Given the significance I have attached to said knapsack, naturally I wanted it to be the best, so I trolled the Internets for the best of the best. Here are my picks for the back-to-school season’s top-five preschooler backpacks.

Go Buy Now: Patagonia Baby Down Sweaters
By

If this is your first winter with a toddler, you will undoubtedly scoff not only at the timing of this post, but at the cost of the item I am recommending that you purchase now, in the heat of July, or in the next 6-8 weeks, before they sell out. The Patagonia Baby Down Sweater ($80) is hands-down the single best winter jacket for kids. Period. It is warm, well-made, light, durable, uber-washable, and. . . drum roll, please. . . your child will actually wear it. Without protest.

Chic, Original Clothing for Kids that is Simply Drool-Worthy and Affordable
By

Her line is a little big boho, a little bit rocker, but SO chic and clean. It’s so good, in fact, that it’s almost wasted on the kids! Almost. What I find so refreshing – besides the use of re-purposed fabric – is the fact that she manages to infuse a children’s line with chic, never veering into the realm of cutesy, fussy or trying to hard. She just offers great design, great lines, and great fabric. It’s a recipe so deceptively simple that you almost miss the genius behind it. And the fact that this line is also so ridiculously affordable (prices range from $6 – $44) is simply the icing on the cake.
