What my life would look like

Of course one year winding down and a New Year soon upon us often sparks reflection and thought. Each year with children brings upon a new phase in a families dynamics. With babies life looks different, with busy toddlers life looks different, and now for me with an early adolescent (who by the way, knows EVERYTHING) and shall we say a lovely and "spirited" toddler, life looks different! Some phases are more physical and tiring, and some phases are more emotionally trying (each adding a little more "character" to our aging faces). This could probably be best defined by travelling with young children. Playpens, car seats, strollers, high chairs, luggage, bottles, diapers, slings, bibs, wipes, the list is endless - the security people would gringe when we walked up, all of us in a full sweat! But as they get older the "stuff" gets less and travel becomes a little easier and calmer, shall we say?

At one point in my life I didn't even know if we would be able to have children - and now I am blessed with two amazing little girls who have enriched my life beyond words. Life certainly would have looked different.

Cailin being my first Bean, paved the way towards Peekaboo Beans, by offering me the simple insight of the need to empower children and to give them tools to learn about life through play. So now Peekaboo Beans offers life tools based around their clothing to dress with ease, to delight in dressing themselves with a mix and match "daddy proof" system, to allow for comfort and relief of irritating fussy clothes, and to be stylish to boot and most of all to just let them play.

I have many friends who have boys and me being the mom of two girls, I delight in the differences of what life would look like had we had boys. Oh how I would love to dress them up in that A+ Argyle Zip Up Jacket! So in celebration of the other half of the population we are having a BOYS ONLY WEEK, starting on January 17. We encourage you to send pictures, tell stories and delight in the wonderful little boys out there. We will be having contests, posts and an amazing opportunity to introduce your friends with boys to the product with some fabulous online BEAN-IFITS! You won't want to miss this one. Have girls? Refer a friend and get a fabulous set of our girly girl arm bands or a headband!

For now, enjoy today - because tomorrow, life will look different....
