Day 3: Preview!!!

Good morning GREEN Mamas!! This is a preview post of what's to come?! I have a guest post today (I wanted to talk more about this mama but she wrote an awesome guest post that ya'll don't have to hear me chatter that much today!)

I introduce you to Anne!

How many times as a parent do you find yourself fantasizing about some product that you WISH existed?  I know that I spent many nursing hours engineering a magical lifter that would silently- and without jostling- move my sleeping daughter from my arms to her bed.  Or how about a vacuum snot extractor that was gentle, effective and your baby LOVED?  I dreamt of many such inventions.  And as a cloth diapering mama, I ached- yearned- and pined away for pants that fit my baby’s diapers, dangit! 
It didn’t seem like such a novel idea, really.  It sat in my brain and needled me at night.   Simultaneously, I was learning the ropes to basic sewing.  I would sit behind my machine during naptime and imagine all of the adorable jeans that I’d make my babe when I learned how to sew properly!
Finally it just dawned on me.  My partner and I were heading North to visit the grandparents.  As the baby napped soundly in our backseat we arrived at the notion that I wasn’t going to sew a couple of pairs of jeans.  No.  I was going to design jeans and jump in to the dusty world of garment manufacturing!
Hence, I evolved over the course of a year from a SAHM to a WAHM, and a design entrepreneur…proudly joining rank with the many other mompreneurs; the community of women who take their expertise in mothering, and create a business from it. 

It is a beautiful and exhilarating collaboration.  And I know that my product is superb because it was created by me for families who have the exact same need as I do!  They are organic because conventional cotton is one of global agriculture’s most toxic commodities.  They are lightweight, because when my daughter was just learning to sit or crawl or climb, stiff thick jeans left creases in her skin and seemed to hinder her movement.  They are high waisted in the back, low in the front to cover that bootie, but still look adorable without restricting bending.  The back pocket size is scaled up to minimize the appearance of the bootie.  They are cute, comfortable and socially and environmentally responsible. 
It feels like a dream to have created a product that I’m so proud of.  I feel like I’m not just providing a product for a market, but a service to the cloth diapering community.  No, these jeans won’t help your child sleep through the night or make her less congested, but they will cover those diapers, be comfortable, look cute and allow you peace of mind.

In cloth diapering solidarity,

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
