Celebrate Mama! Festival - from babies to boys, i'm not buying so much...

I attended yesterday's "Celebrate Mama!" festival in Bethesda, Maryland as a representative of the Washington Parent Magazine table (i'm Editor at Large for the magazine). I have to say the vendors were an impressive bunch - lots of great, high-quality products and services. I was a bit moved by how much baby stuff there was - and the realization that my boys (3 and the other turning 7 on Friday) are somehow, suddenly, too old for me to buy them these things! Don't get me wrong - kid #3 is not happening, but it was weird to know the only time i'll need to buy a blanket bag or lovey is for a baby gift for someone else. These products also seem to be cuter, softer, more colorful and better quality than when even my little one was younger. Hmmm.

Now i'm buying footballs, basketballs, soccer balls and all the equipment and classes that go with it. It's fun in its own way!

They grow so fast.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
