Favorite Toddler Clothing & Shoe Brands

With four children in our house (ages 23 months to almost 12), we've been through lots of clothing and shoes over the past 12 years.

Birthday Gift Guide for 8-Year-Old Girls

Eight-year-old girls are beautiful, smart, fun, and funny. They are eager to please, but also have strong opinions of their own. They are both confident and humble.

With three daughters (and now - a newborn son!) in the house, our dress-up closet gets continual use. I am often graced with the presence of princesses and queens, cowgirls and mermaids, ballerinas and gymnasts, police officers and veterinarians. Hats and scarves are especially popular...so I keep a keen eye out for gently used, machine-washable options […]

Interlock versus Mesh Polos from Lands' End

You've heard me sing the praises of Lands' End polos in past articles. Of the brands we've tried for school uniforms, they are the best of the best - soft, well-fitting, and able to withstand lots of washes all throughout the year. If you've browsed the Lands' End website, you have probably noticed that the […]
