Now we know our A-B-Cs ...
A is for Abe Jones:
Raspberry Kids exclusive in Canada! We presently carry 4 of the
comfiest and coolest lounge sets for the infant/toddler crowd. These light
weight coordinating pant and long sleeve shirt sets are perfect for
those cruisy spring days or cool summer eves. Girls can choose from a
pretty Peacock or colorful Quail applique and the little men in your life will be thrilled with the BMX or Scooter options. Abe Jones co-founder Janel proudly manufactures all of her pieces in the San Francisco Bay Area.
B is for boon:
have had the homepage teaser up for about a week now but we are very
excited that the newest and bestest boon products have arrived and are
waiting to find their way to your bath tubs and dinner tables. Check
out scrubbles, water bugs and splat for tub time and the new boon saucers
to compliment the rest of boon's feeding products. All of boon's
products are BPA, Phthalate and PVC free but best of all they are
affordable and we think they scream FRESH! HEALTHY! and FUN! just like
C is for Creative Individual: Designed
and made in Canada, the Creative Individual produces some of the
coolest and most extensive line of wall art and grow charts for children's rooms.
These removable and repositionable decals are an economical way to
brighten up a child's room, play room or any living space (we have
stickers up in our dining room!). No need to mess with paints or
costly home renovations, just peel, stick, apply and enjoy. Our faves are the 2 Monkeys and the Flower Pot Castle.

What the heck is ootmob you ask? It stands for "out of the mouth of babes". Each month we will feature a cute quote, question or quip from one of our Raspberry Patch newsletter subscribers. Please email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we feature your ootmob, you will receive a $25 raspberry kids gift card.
Winning ootmob: "Are you a Character?"
My niece, Ethel, who was 2 years old has an excellent
vocabulary for her age and is quite a talker. She said to me: “Mommy said
that if you don’t know someone’s character, then you shouldn’t
talk to them!”
I was quite taken aback at her words so I asked her: “Ethel,
what does character mean?”
She said to me: “Auntie, character means
like Mickey Mouse and Minnie and Donald Duck!”
I was laughing so hard, I had tears in my eyes!Congratulations to Doreen from Vancouver who submitted this month's OOTMOB. Doreen picked up a Dwellstudio Transportation Bottle Holder and some boon benders with her gift card.
Thank you to everyone who submitted their ootmobs. Keep the entries coming and maybe you could win next month.
Thank you for reading and have a fresh, healthy & fun day. Today and every day,
Chief Executive Mom

|If a child|
If a child lives with criticism,
he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility,
he learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule,
he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame,
he learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance,
he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement,
he learns confidence.
If a child lives with praise,
he learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness,
he learns justice.
If a child lives with security,
he learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval,
he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship,
He learns to find love in the world.
