New Years Eve update

So...if you are in the Fargo-Moorhead area, you already know that the roads are still terrible out there so unfortunately we will be closed for the entire day. I'm still planning on opening at noon tomorrow unless the weather doesn't allow it so check back before venturing out.

I hope everyone stays safe and warm and has a wonderful New Year's Eve!

We will be closing for the remainder of the day due to the no travel advisory in Fargo-Moorhead. Hopefully we will be open our regular hours of 10am-6pm tomorrow but I will keep you posted here and on Facebook.

Now off to snuggle with my girl! Stay safe and warm!


Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

With the weather getting increasingly worse out my window, I thought I should give you an update on what the store hours will be providing they don't advise no travel in Fargo-Moorhead.

Friday, December 31st: open regular hours of 10am-6pm
Saturday, January 1st: noon-5pm

I will be sure to update Facebook at the blog if the hours change due to weather.

Now for something fun that I can't believe I haven't shared yet! I'm such a sucker for Melissa & Doug food toys and I'm dying to bring this one home to play with...umm, I mean for Lucy to play with!

The Wean Machine

When I was at market this past October I saw this simple device in action and let me tell you, it was IMPRESSIVE! It's a great way to introduce foods to your little one without all the work. Just pop one of the many on the list of approved foods into the Wean Machine, squeeze the handle and Voila, it seperates all the skin, seeds, and chunks that you don't want for baby and leaves all the good stuff!

•Makes baby food wherever you are
•Easy to use, just fill, squeeze and feed!
•Portable, compact and includes spoon
•Allergy friendly
•Saves time and money - no need to cook extra meals
•BPA, Phthalate and PVC Free
•Easily sterilized and "top-shelf dishwasher safe"
I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Lucy and I had a blast and I'll try to post some pictures soon.

Scandinavian style and a little inspiration...

Check out the cute European line I just got in! Those of you with lil farmers in your life are going to LOVE the tractor tees!

Cute huh?

As we get closer to Christmas, I try to remember how lucky I am and be thankful for all the great people and things in my life. Last night however, I found that hard to do as my little Lucy figured out that she is able to get out of her room at bedtime! I knew it was too good to be true that she just stayed in bed like she couldn't move!! Long story short, 3 1/2 hours later she finally gave up and I was one frustrated momma. I have to admit, the holidays can be hard when your divorced or single and have to share you child/children. Family outings like visiting Santa, watching holiday movies on tv, and driving around looking at Christmas lights just isn't the same. Well, add that to the fact that the little stinker LOCKED me out of the house this morning as I was shoveling and I have to admit, I was feeling a bit frustrated and "un-grateful"! Then, as I got to work and was reading my daily list of blogs, I came across this "no matter how hard things have been, no matter how hard things are, no matter how hard things become, she has been, she is, she will be the reminder that something great is just around the corner."

Stinker or not, I am feeling a little more grateful.

When I saw "Bamboobies" on a sign at market this past October, I couldn't help but stop and find out what they were! Turns out, they are a line of reusable nursing pads that aren't only soft and super absorbant but eco-friendly as well!

What makes Bamboobies better than other nursing pads?

SOFTNESS: Bamboo is much softer than cotton, hemp or wool and doesn't feel cold and clammy when wet like cotton does! Your tender nipples deserve nothing but the softest,most soothing fabrics.

ECO FABRICS: You deserve only all-natural, untreated, certified organic fibers.

HIGHER ABSORPTION: Ultra-soft wicking fibers close to your skin and
hemp inner layers to wick and hold 4 times more liquid than cotton.

DESIGN: Regular Bamboobies are less visible through shirts because they have
a waterproof backing and their heart-shape cups the breast without a seam!

If you still have shopping to do, we still have lots of great toys and clothes in stock. In preparation for our early Spring shipments a lot of our Fall and Winter clothing will be marked down starting today so stop in and check it out!

Also, our holiday hours for this week are the following:
Friday, December 24th: 10am-2pm
Saturday, December 25th: CLOSED
Sunday, December 26th: CLOSED

Ergo is here!

Since we opened, I've gotten SO MANY requests for the Ergo carrier that when I went to market this past October, I KNEW I had to make an appointment with them! When Lucy was little I tried almost every type of sling but never tried this carrier. I assumed it was just like the Baby Bjorn but I was wrong! Although I am a HUGE fan of the Baby K'tan sling, I love that the Ergo is one size so mom or dad can use it!

This is the all-in-one soft baby carrier, assisting you through all the stages of your baby's growth and moving from front to hip to back position easily.

It was designed by Karin Frost and has undergone extensive testing by tens of thousands of parents. Its innovative design makes wearing your baby comfortable for hours at a time, gives you the freedom to remain active and productive in your daily life, and holds your baby secure to your body so you are HandsFree.

ERGObaby’s baby carrier design supports a natural sitting position for babies, eliminating compression of the spine and hips that can be caused by unsupported suspension. The baby carrier also balances the baby's weight to parents' hips and shoulders, and alleviates physical stress for the parent.

If you are looking for a carrier, stop in and try this one out. It comes in different colors and styles for you to choose from.

Also, remember that we will be open extended hours until 9:30pm this Thursday the 16th. Christmas is right around the corner so stop in and get that shopping done!

unique baby cleaning challenges, from dried milk on bottles to

Meet one of the "girls"

So, as some of you may have noticed, there has been a few new faces around here lately. It's been so great being able to hire a few great girls to help out around here. Meet Crystal....

I know, adorable right? Her beautiful little peanut's name is Adia and that cutie of a husband is Chris. I oringally met Crystal & Chris when we first opened and she was pregnant with her little one. She's such a sweet and fun girl and I feel lucky to have her!

I had a list of fun questions that I made her answer for this blog post but of course I lost them so I threw that idea out the window (pretty surprising huh Crystal?)! She is my "organized" girl and I swear just a few hours here with me and I feel like the place is whipped into shape! Soo happy to have you here Crystal!

And now for new stuff! Look at these adorable socks sets we got in last week!

And really, does it get much more fun than this "mowhawk" hat for your lil man?

We've gotten a lot of new stuff lately so be sure to stop in to check those kiddos off your Christmas list!
