mother of all days, may 10
The other day, I went looking for mother's day cards for my mother in law and Great Granny over in Australia & I nearly had a break down right there in London Drugs Aisle 8. It was so very hard not to be able to choose a card to send to my own mother & our kids other grandmother, not this year and not ever again. Since I think of her all the time, every day seems like it should be mother's day but please take the time to celebrate or remember your Mom (or Mum) on this special day. She deserves it.
As you know, for the most part, Raspberry Kids focuses on the 0-6 set but we do have a few offerings we think any mom would love.
Funky florals, adorable animals, Eurochic panache, retro flair & electrifying collisions of color make espe an explosion of fashion, function & fun.
Fill Your Own Stainless Steel Bottles:
Whether you're working, getting fit, taking a relaxing stroll or cuddling with your cutie, local Vancouver mompreneur, Annette Yang's Fill Your Own stainless steel water bottles meet the needs of your lifestyle.
Fun designs, created by Vancouver Artists, add style to every-day water bottles.
Dwellstudio & Dante Beatrix Diaper Totes:I wish I had known about these companies when I first started toting around a diaper bag. It was just that, a yucky canvas bag. I could have looked way more chic with one of these totes. While they still come with all the diaper bag qualities, the added bonus is that they look fantastic and noone will ever suspect you are carrying around wipes, cheerios & a thermometer in such a gorgeous hand bag. The Dwell totes come with several matching accessories such as small & large travel cases & bottle holders.
For the record, there is nothing wrong with treating yourself to a little something & since I already have 4 espe products & a Fill Your Own water bottle, my "something" will be a much needed pedicure at Vancouver's Som Visao spa who incidentally has some great specials on right now to celebrate their 1st anniversary.

Winning ootmob: "Take 2 & call me in the Morning"
My 5 year old was helping me tend my headache & when I was pouring myself a glass of water; she reached over for the child safe bottle of Tylenol, & tried to open it.
She said "Mommy, I can't open it!"
I explained to her that it has a child safe cap & only adults can open it. She responded with "How does it know it is me?"
