Happy Friday: Hair SOS

by Cat on August 31, 2012

Happy Friday! We survived the first week of preschool except for one discovery. My son has industrial steel wool strength hair that will not bend, yield or compromise to any molding compound known to my medicine cabinet. It is especially resilient at 8:00 am when we are on our way out the door. See the culprit flyaways below… I’ve tried extra strength molding paste, water followed by gel and heavy duty xxx-strength wax.  Any of you out there who might know of a fast solution?

Shop: Toy Planters for Succulents

by Cat on August 30, 2012

An artfully hand arranged floral arrangement would be scissored, kicked, picked, licked or crayoned if placed in Zilla’s room…but these fun plastic toy planters by The Plaid Pigeon  (via More Design Please) for hardy succulents? They might just stand a chance…

Shop: Wooden Book Racks

by Cat on August 29, 2012

In the futuristic novel Super Sad True Love Story that I’m reading in my book club, a physical “book” in the future is actually so stinky and antiquated that being caught with one is almost as bad as if you were holding contraband. I think I’d be an outcast if that were true… I LOVE books. I love the way Zilla climbs into his chair with three at a time and can’t stand the thought of throwing one out. These handmade wooden book racks by Old and Cold display books like pieces of art. Rightfully so I must say!

The Daily: Happy First Day of Preschool

by Cat on August 28, 2012

Just wanted to wish Zilla a Happy First Day of Preschool today. And wishing all of yours a Happy First Day of school this month as well. Am I allowed to confess I am not quite ready to share what little of his double chin or pot belly that he has left or his little squeals with anyone, including his teacher?  Just please tell me it gets easier…

Shop: Back to School Rags

by Cat on August 27, 2012

How many of you spent the better part of your weekend speeding down your last minute back to school list? Or feared the implosion of your local Target from the mini-riot of families waiting for Viva paper towels to be restocked on aisle 17? That was pretty much me in preparation for  Zilla’s first week of preschool. Perhaps the only respite was daydreaming while waiting in line of all the fun back to school outfits. Here are a few from my bookmarks…
