Bria ApronFirst, happy Wednesday! You made it half way through the week…I hope you feel accomplished because I certainly do.

So, back in December I was searching for the perfect birthday present for L’s best friend and I stumbled across these little gems. I found them at RetroActive Kids and completely fell in love with them! They are art smocks and aprons for kids in really bold and cute patterns from Luke & Loolu. This company was co-founded by a Seattle mom…which you know I love.

Luke & Loolu also have a number of other great products check out their site to see more.

Check out the aprons & smocks:

Giraffe Children's Step Stool by Custom Climbers (Pink, Brown, Striped)L, my daughter, is most definitely a 2-year-old now. She wants to be involved and help with everything. She has this really ugly looking step stool my husband once bought from the hardware store for changing light bulbs. She enjoys being able to pull the stool up and “help” mommy cook but I have been looking for something that looked nicer. I found these stools from the Etsy store CustomClimbers and really loved them. They are very stylish but still look like they are meant for kids. An added plus is that they are made by a mom! I love supporting mom-owned businesses!

Lastly,  they are  wood, which makes them durable…now I just need to convince the husband that we need one!
