Gymboree - New Arrivals & Deals!

The new Gymboree Lines are out - and they are cute! I love the bright bold colours - but can I really start thinking about fall clothing when school has been out for all of one day? (The answer is yes, who am I trying to fool?)

The Red Balloon sale continues - so if you haven't wondered in store for awhile, you may want to see what things your sales associates have managed to find in the back room.

Happy Birthday Sarah!!!!

Today is Sarah's birthday and like many other Mom's it won't be a day to herself. After getting "M" up early to play in her first soccer tournament play off she will then most likely babysit my "K" so I can take the girls to soccer. She will meet with a customer to give her order all the while trying to entertain a 11 month old, a two year old and a six year old, this is because her wonderful husband is playing a baseball today. Next she will prepare food, drinks, pack some coolers and a mini van to help set up for a soccer wind-up BBQ that she thought of and organized. She will move tables from one site to another, BBQ some burgers and dogs, eat standing up, chase that same 11 month old, then challenge her daughter in a kids vs. adults soccer game. Then comes the clean up at the BBQ, then at her house and then its bath time, kisses and tuck in. Soon she realizes its 10:00 and she is finally sitting down.

All this happens on Sarah's birthday because she is a supportive Mom, a thoughtful friend, a wonderful wife and an excellent "bench Mom". We would be lost without and I am thankful everyday that she is in my life both professionally and more importantly personally.

Kids Bowl Free This Summer!!

First things first, thanks Michelle for this awesome link!! So excited for summer to hurry up and get here but that also means I will be at home all day everyday with 5 kids and once the novelty of no school wears off, I foresee many fights and tantrums.

That is why I was so happy to get this email letting me know about a summer program that allows all the kids in your household under the age of 15 to bowl 2 free games everyday this summer. All you need to do is sign yourself and you kids up at

The "Kids Bowl Free" is a summer bowling program that is sponsored by select bowling centers across the U.S. and Canada. Kids receive 2 free games of bowling everyday during the summer. There is no cost to participate. Parents may purchase a Family Pass from $24.95 (one-time payment) that covers up to 4 adult family members and provides 2 games of bowling everyday throughout the summer. I chose not to buy the family pass, but I was still able to print this weeks coupons! In Winnipeg it is offered at Academy Bowling Lanes, just scroll down to see what lanes are hosting this fabulous program in your province.

Can' go wrong with something that is fun, basically free (shoe rental is $2) and gets the kids out of the house.

Next New Gymbo Line!

Info of the newest Gymboree lines have surfaced and they're plaid and horses.

Kid boy has brown and light brown colours, plaid, an adorable top with a skull wearing a cowboy hat and of course, cowboy boots! Baby boy has an adorable cowboy hat with a sheriff badge on it!

Kid girl is purple plaids and flowers, a tan sleeveless sweater with a horse head on it (like the purse from Malibu cowgirl) I'm not much of a fan of the "floating head". Baby girl has the same horse head on a t-shirt with a light purple tutu and flowered leggings.

I think for once I'm much more a fan of the boys line than the girls - but we will see what happens when it hits the stores!

Our Website

We are working feverishly to launch our website - it is a lot more work than we ever anticipated to set up!!

Between making our popular headbands, meetings with wholesalers and building the website itself, we are struggling to get all of our clothing posted.

Don't fret - it is coming - and thank goodness next week our soccer of 4 nights a week (twice on Wednesdays!) will be cut down to 3 nights a week. May not sound like much, but it is a welcome break!

We are posting at least a few items every day, so be sure to keep going back to see what's new.
We're also excited to launch with our new products, be on the look out for Bink Links, Boon, Marshmellow Shooters, and much, much more!!

Visit us today - we do have some Brand Me Downs items listed (most new with tags!!) and of course our very popular adjustable headbands (made to match Gymboree!!) and Piggy Paint! The Piggy Paint introductory price ends Friday, so buy now!

Memory, what is that?

As you all may already know Sarah and I have been trying to re-launch our online store, so in the process we have been neglecting a few other things~like this blog!
In addition to working on the website, shopping for the website, sending out orders we both have a family that needs some attention as well.

I use to be a "working" Mom with a job that I spent 50 hours a week at and I feel like I had more time then. Granted I was the Mother of two then with another on the way, my baby numbers have grown exponentially since then. Expansion aside, I feel like I am "working" more and harder now than I ever have before.

Its a fine line that you tip toe on everyday~where and how and who to give your time to. Lets be honest none of those minutes ever make your way. I accept that, I knew that pedi's and mani's, girls night and book club would happen less frequently but what I find hard to accept is that all this "busy-ness" has made me absent minded.

"Hello memory, Where are you and are you expected back anytime soon?" Seriously, we joke about pregnesia and momnesia but this really is a true "disease", I am afraid one day I will forget a child that's how bad my memory is getting. Sarah and I joke all the time that we need to walk around with a mini note book and write things down. Or I think I might start calling my voicemail and leaving messages for myself, I'm serious.

You think I exaggerate the seriousness of this situation...exhibit A. Last week my one and only daughter lost another tooth, very exciting and a little gross all at the same time. The next morning she woke up and told us that the Tooth Fairy didn't make it last night. My heart sank,and then I noticed my hubby looking at me with accusing eyes! Really, seriously? This is only my fault? 24 hours goes by and we seem to be having the same breakfast conversation the very next day~horrible parents, guilt ridden Mom. The next morning no TF conversation, so I ask the hubby if he did his fatherly duty and pull the old switch-a-roo, "No, I thought you did!", he answered. For all you keeping count that is 3 nights the TF didn't make it and on the third morning Abigail was so disappointed or had finally given up that she didn't say a word. Did I mention the horribleness of the situation, the guilt that was weighing me down. The next night I cam home around 1:30 AM from working at Sarah's ( you see a SAHM business hours are 9PM-till you can't keep our eyes open ) and there was a purple piece of paper that read "TOOTH FAIRY!!!!!". I proceeded to Abigail's room, shoes on still ~figured if I made that detour I would forget AGAIN~ and left $3 one for every night the Tooth Fairy was MIA. In the end she was happy with her financial gains ans never questioned the TF tardiness, clever girl.

I will learn to cope with my inability to remember, so if you see me on the playground with a huge star drawn on my hand, don't laugh just remind me that it is my turn to pick the girls up from

Piggy Paint Review & Giveaway

We were lucky enough to receive Piggy Paint polish and remover to try - and we fell in love.

Piggy Paint is a natural, eco-friendly nail polish designed for fancy girls. It's non-toxic, hypo-allergenic and safe to use on all little piggies!

Here is an example of the difference Piggy Paint makes. Look at how the regular solvent-based kid polish eats through a styrofoam plate!! No way do you want to put it on your children, or even yourself!

Piggy Paint comes in a wide variety of colours from Angel Kisses for your girly-girl to Dandilion Dance (yellow) for your tomboy and Twinkle Toes (silver) for your little diva!

Piggy Paint has also launched a new line of paints called Project Earth in funky colours geared towards tweens and teens, such as Radioactive (glow in the dark!) and Eat Your Peace (bright green).

When you want to take off your polish, (to try a new colour of course!), Piggy Paint also makes safe, non-toxic polish remover. It has no acetone, is hypoallergenic and it's made from natural ingredients.

We carry a selection of our favourite Piggy Paint colours at Everything After The Stork, or to find every colour they offer you can visit Piggy Paint.
