Slippery When Wet

We had monsoon like rains here and I'd have been fine with that had I one of these sweet pairs of rain boots. 
Nothing says, "Hey, up yours Mother Nature!" like a pair of biker inspired rain boots.

Well Read

I think most of you who've been following me for a bit know how much I love a good illustrator. Now that my days are filled with endless streams of children's books, some good, some not so good, I appreciate the art form even more. I stumbled across this book and just fell head over heels with the illustrations and not for nothing the premise for the story is pretty fabu as well:

Panni Kövecses’s debut book is a kids’ detective story, which takes place in a small seaside town during summer vacation. We join Erik and Nipper in their hunt for the stolen canary, photo camera and horn-rimmed glasses to discover who is the unexpected thief behind all these mysterious disappearances. Thanks to the author’s graphic design background, this charming story is enhanced by a stunning illustration using great colors, lovely characters and some fabulous mid-century atmosphere. This book makes a perfect first for children who are just discovering the joy of reading.

It looks like The Wee One is getting anew addition to her bookshelf!

Listening To: Cee Lo Green



Calling all moms (and dads)

I need a little advice- Do any of you out there have kids with sensitive skin? My daughter has developed an allergy to her current laundry detergent Dreft which is supposed to be super gentle for babies skin.

Anything you guys can recommend from first hand experience? There are so many free and clear all natural brands out there.

Thanks a million-
