Happy Mother’s Day!

My annual Mother’s Day photo gets a little easier to do as the boys get older. This is the 10th year and they finally understand that until I have a photo I like, they aren’t going anywhere- ha! This was around nine in the morning as we had plans to be away all day, so I felt pretty accomplished this morning.

Yes, my oldest is (almost!) as tall as I am. I’m sitting in the photo so it’s hard to tell, but it’s shocks me every day to see how tall my modern baby has gotten.

Motherhood is such an adventure, full of stages and changes the whole way through. Just as you’ve mastered the newborn stage, baby stage, or toddler stage, a whole new set of challenges, growth and excitement take their place and you grow and stretch to meet their needs and figure out who you need to become in the process.

Enjoy your day no matter what stage you’re in, because next year will be a whole different story.

With love,
Esther

Rocking Monsters

I may know of my opinion that every child should have a rocking toy of some sort, but if a rocking horse seems overplayed, there are tons of other options. We’ve covered many stylish choices but the Rocking Monsters collection by Linen Art may be the wildest. Originally presented on Kickstarter, the Rocking Monsters are now available on Amazon (and you can order via our affiliate links).

The rocking toys are easy to assemble with all the tools included. They are currently $100 plus $30 shipping and you can choose the Octopus, Shark or the Ghost.

I love the tentacles on the octopus, but I think the Shark will be the most popular.

Playsets from Hearth & Handâ„¢ with Magnolia

We first showed you the Hearth & Handâ„¢ with Magnolia items for kids at holiday time, but with Mother’s Day approaching, you’re going to want to take a look at these. Have the kids start practicing for your breakfast in bed with the Wooden Toy Breakfast Tray. $25

We always did an afternoon tea for my mom on Mother’s Day, so this Wooden Toy Tea Set is perfect as well. $30

Mother’s Day or any day, these are adorable.

Rich or Reasonable: Elephant Baskets

Shaped baskets are fun decor items for a modern nursery or child’s room. They add natural texture and whimsical storage.

Our luxe version of the Elephant Shaped Basket from Zara Home is woven of rattan and measure 13″ x 14″ x 24″.

The more affordable version, the Opalhouse Elephant Basket from Target, is shown below. It’s a water hyacinth basket just a little bit smaller, measuring 12″ x 12″ x 15″.

Both are super cute.
