Winner is: #33 Michelle

It seems like ages since I’ve posted. I am nearly out of the Birthday Zone just one more to go! It’s the easy one – she just wants us to take her for dinner. HUGE sigh of relief.

Sam & Georgia’s party was wild, but a good time was had by all.

Georgia & Dad
Georgia and her Dad reach new heights!

Birthday Fun
Sam and friends.

I won a contest over @ sweetjessie.com (I’m on a winning streak). Look at what arrived in the mail. I love it! Thank you Jessie, you’re sweet.

Sweet Jessie
There are buttons and badges made with vintage fabrics / paper. Candies (very good) and more …


Tonight I am giving away Bical Grippers Skully Boy shoes. This winner can choose from our available sizes (3-8).

Bical Grippers - Skully Boy

If you don’t like the Skully Boy, you may choose to have a Red Argyll (long) instead, choose from sizes 4-11. These long styles are so cute with a skirt. Georgia wears the Red Argyll (brand new not even on our site yet) with a denim skirt and red tee, and it’s too cute!

Bical Grippers - Red Argyle Long

If you would you like to be eligible to win these cool shoes, then you know what to do –> comment AND tell me how likely you are to buy organic clothing for your children. Is it something you care about, or is it too expensive?

I’m the first to comment? Yippee! We keep debating about a trampoline…the kids love them though :)

You are on a winning streak! When do you have the time??? :)

I’m all for organic…it’s just the time issue. :)

MommyKnows · June 18, 2007 at 9:32 pm

Hey Angella,

We picked this trampoline up for the kids @ costco! I was more than we planned to spend but the netting and no springs sold us. It was a HIT @ the party and every spare moment since.

I have been using it myself :) good exercise.

Cherylyn · June 18, 2007 at 9:41 pm

I’m glad the party went well, thank heavens all the next one wants is dinner!!
I’ve never given organic much thought until recently, I’ve gotten a couple of organic shirts for me from Costco and they seem really great, plus it is so much better for the environment so I am starting to think about it for the boys, the cost is a negating factor sometimes though.
I think I’m giving up on winning anything, but I enjoy reading your blog anyway!

Naomi · June 18, 2007 at 9:49 pm

I really love the concept of organic but it definitely depends on the price and styling, how much I love it, etc. Sometimes it seems ambiguous. Like how WalMart has organic stuff. How organic is it? Hmm.

I love the Bicals but hubby has expressly forbidden me to buy baby shoes until 1. Roo’s feet grow or 2. baby Jasper is born and actually needs shoes. Ugh.

Janice · June 18, 2007 at 9:56 pm

Trust you are feeling better.
Of course I would love to win Skully Bical Grippers!

I like the idea of organic kids clothes, haven’t looked into it too much, need to do that. I was lucky and was given so many hand-me-downs that I hardly had to buy any clothes for my son, and won’t until he gets to 2T.

glittersmama · June 18, 2007 at 10:18 pm

Not likely to buy organic clothing…too expensive, they don’t wear it long enough, and it’s not any healthier for them. (I’m thinking about some organic foods here.)

Ryans Mom · June 18, 2007 at 10:47 pm

Great news that I won! Can’t wait to receive my babylegs they are addictive.

I love the trampoline, great design. I bet you had a lot of happy kids at the party.

Sheila · June 18, 2007 at 11:31 pm

Trampoline looks like fun. I just survived Aston’s 1st birthday party. Wow! was that ever a production :)

Yan · June 18, 2007 at 11:48 pm

I think organic clothing would be too expensive, consider they will only wear them for few months.

I love your trampoline, I was going to get the same one from Costco but I think my back yard would be little tight :(

Diane · June 18, 2007 at 11:48 pm

Congratulations on yet another win… buying organic clothes, well I love the idea but dislike the cost and also it is hard enough to find cute boys clothes but then to find organic cute boys clothes.. I think it might be impossible… I would rather do my part by using cloth diapers

Beth · June 18, 2007 at 11:55 pm

Organic clothes are a nice idea, but too expensive-especially since I get most of the clothes for my little one from Goodwill :) I think of it as good for the environment because I’m recycling.

Marcy · June 18, 2007 at 11:57 pm

Hey, I don’t think I would be one to GO OUT LOOKING to buy organic, mainly due to the higher costs.

Richard · June 19, 2007 at 1:31 am

Never really heard of organic clothing per se….

Susanne · June 19, 2007 at 4:10 am

I like the idea of helping the environment, but I really don’t know much at all about organic clothing. How is it better for the environment (versus, say, 100% cotton)? Maybe you could have a post about it? Adorable shoes!
And it looks like the b’day party was a success!

Kait · June 19, 2007 at 5:41 am

I really like the couple skull things you’ve featured. My son seems to be coming into a “punk”-y stage (at almost 3, what am I in for?!). I’ve seen a lot of other kids wearing similar stuff.

Marla Kostis · June 19, 2007 at 5:43 am

3 of our 9 children have birthdays in June, so it’s a really busy month for us also! Our youngest, Kelton, turned 3 on the 7th, our second oldest, Shara, turned 25 on the 16th and one of our middle ones, Jade, will be 22 on the 25th.

Marla Kostis · June 19, 2007 at 5:45 am

I buy organic clothing for myself, my DH and my youngest child. The older ones are on their own now, so they make their own decisions about clothing. We’re not exclusively organic, but would sure like to be!

Jessie · June 19, 2007 at 6:53 am

Yay! I’m glad your package finally arrived!

Deb · June 19, 2007 at 8:19 am

Those shoes do look rather neat. I’ve never seen them around here.
As for organic clothing – I buy it for myself, but I haven’t bought any for my kids (I haven’t seen any for them either). We live with a strict budget, so I am limited…the organic clothing I bought I found an AWESOME deal on.

Laura · June 19, 2007 at 8:24 am

Love daddy on the trampoline…such fun! Glad you are almost through with the birthday bonanza!

jw4mkc · June 19, 2007 at 8:33 am

Ahh – There are one of the bicals I was wanting, but they weren’t available yet – I LOVE THEM!!

Organic, huh? I think that is awesome, but like you said – for the right price. I have a hard time spending too much on clothes for my kids when they might outgrow it a week after I buy it. So, yes, if it is not too expensive, I would love to buy organic clothes.

Susy-Q · June 19, 2007 at 9:20 am

I LOVE the skull bicals. hey will make my son look really punky. He looks so cute with a little mohawk when he is in his tub, I was telling my husband it would be fun when he is a bit older to get him a little mohawk cut. Not shaved on the sides, just kinda shorter. He thinks I am crazy!!

As for the organic clothing, I think it is a great idea but we cannot really afford it. I saw an organic cotton t-shirt just recently and it was 32$!!! There is no way I would pay that much to dress my 10-month old in a t-shirt. If it were a bit more expensive than regular clothes I would go for it, but right now, the prices are WAY out of my range.

Julie · June 19, 2007 at 9:55 am

I think the only piece of clothing DD has owned that was organic was given to her as a gift. I like the concept but it’s a little on the expensive side…

Annie · June 19, 2007 at 11:02 am

I’d be a no on the organic clothing. Just not how I choose to save the world.

Deanne S. · June 19, 2007 at 11:09 am

I have to agree, organic clothes is not how I’d choose to save the world either – but, for those who can afford it, why not do what you can? It’s just too pricey for our one income family :) Maybe when this stay at home mom can get a “real” job (paying one anyway….)

Love the bical grippers….

Lacey · June 19, 2007 at 12:33 pm

Congrats on the birthday season almost being over.

The organic clothes confuse me. Is it just made using organic materials? Is the entire process organic? I don’t know that much about it. I do know it costs more than I am willing to pay. I have received a few organic pieces and find them no different than the 100% cotton clothes I already have.

pinks & blues girls · June 19, 2007 at 12:58 pm

This is SUCH a cool picture! Love the hair flying!

Jane, P&B Girls

Mimi · June 19, 2007 at 1:11 pm

I buy organic when I can and when I can afford the price… The MEC offers organic cotton for kids…


Amy :) · June 19, 2007 at 3:37 pm

Glad you’re almost out of the birthday corridor – looks like everyone had fun.

I do like the idea of organic, but like many others have said, they wear them for such a short time that the price just doesn’t justify it.

leslie · June 19, 2007 at 3:52 pm

..we eat organic (from the garden in summer) but sometimes i’m confused on how just organic these clothes are…and the price!!!

maddiesmom · June 19, 2007 at 4:05 pm

I would buy organic if I could find clothes that I liked. The ones I have seen didn’t have much detail to them. Received the Whoozit today…thank you! My daughter loves it.

Jen the Mom · June 19, 2007 at 4:36 pm

My husband and I have bought organic cotton several times and it’s held up better than the alternative. The only problem is that it usually doesn’t look very nice. It’s ugly stitching, simple design and looks more industrial than beautiful. If that wasn’t a problem then we’d buy more organic material clothing.

Michelle · June 19, 2007 at 4:58 pm

Theoretically, I think organic is great. But practically, it’s hard to find and a bit too pricey for our family. Hopefully, though, that won’t always be the case.

tanyetta · June 19, 2007 at 5:35 pm

i’ve never thought to buy organic.

love the skully boots though! pick me :)

Tracy · June 19, 2007 at 5:48 pm

I have never given organic clothes much thought but with three soon to be four boys the price is a big factor for me, if I can get it second hand then I am a happy camper.

I love the Bical Grippers.

Laura · June 19, 2007 at 6:41 pm

I like the concept of organic because of the “Green” factor… but I’m miles away from using organic exclusively.

I love the Parade Tshirt line; my babes look so cute in them, check it out here: http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y14/LHowes/DSCF1474.jpg

Price is a definite factor, but I think the gap is closing.

MommyKnows · June 19, 2007 at 7:02 pm

Hey Laura,

I like Parade too! Your boys look really cute in theirs.

We do sell PARADE quite sucessfully. But mostly as gifts.

See here: http://www.thebabymarketplace.com/securestore/c282792.2.html

We received some new pieces yesterday.

I will have to write a post on the positive aspects of organic clothing and the benifits, to the planet and our health.

Lisa · June 19, 2007 at 9:15 pm

I like the idea of organic clothing but it is usually not in my price range. I buy cute over organic any day. I used my gift certificate I won to buy some bical grippers and would love to win the skully bical grippers!
