Sorry, Not Sorry About The Kids. | by Joshua Woolf

Look, it really doesn’t matter if you are the greatest parent in the world (not that there is a such thing), kids will be kids. When we are at family weddings or if we have someone watching the kids while us parents are on a date there can be feelings of guilt about how difficult it can be to watch the kids- especially if the person watching them isn’t a parent themselves.

Here is a list of things our children may do while you spend quality time with them- sorry, not sorry. Growl loudly like a dinosaur. Howl at the moon at all hours of the day. Stomp up and down the hall. Stomp in place. Kick the back of your seat in the car. Try to climb in your lap and then immediately climb back down, and then back up again. Pull your hair. Touch your face. Grab your hand and pull at you until you sit on the ground. Ask you to draw something, then criticize and ask you to do it again. Take your purse/bag/wallet and dump out the contents on the floor. Take your car keys, hide your keys, set off your car alarm. Ask you to take them on a walk, only to find out they want to walk to the toy store. Guilt you into purchases. Break promises. Ask you to cook something, not eat it, eat your food instead. Pull the milk out of the fridge- spill. Pull rice/cerial/anything small out of cabinet- spill.
Cry at your wedding, yell at the funeral, drop silverware at the restaurant. Keep you up late, wake you up at 2am/4am/6:55am. And the list is growing and changing daily.

Endure. | by Joshua Woolf

Endure – to suffer patiently.

It’s not just you. You aren’t the only one. Someone has it worse. Someone who looks like he has it better could actually have it worse and someone who looks like he has it worse could very well have it better than you think.

The world is a tough place right now. People are starving, people are suffering, people are sick and obese and addicted and depressed and killing and hurting and fighting for every imaginable combination of reasons.

Yet you are here. You are experiencing an era that allows you to see all of it at once. For better or worse you have a more globally broad perspective of the entire human population than any civilization who has ever lived on this earth. It’s true that the mangled media contrives stories and agenda is pushed but through the lies the truth still boils out and You were born at this time to see it.

I’m in awe of how much we can endure. We can see so much negative and still manage to see good and perpetuate values that make us people a species with meaning. Family, Love, Freedom, Individuality, Greatness. We strive to enjoy what is here to be enjoyed and when it’s tough we take pride in the simple. We embrace what is there to be embraced.

As a member of the so called civilized western world I sometimes momentarily forget just how sweet it really is- and that is okay. It’s okay to feel angry or frustrated and even envious as long as it gets dismissed after its felt and you let it go. Don’t hold onto that negativity. It’s selfish and self destructive. Don’t get hung up it’s unhealthy. Dismiss. Exhale. Move on and appreciate all that is here. Meditate.

Sometimes it’s just that way. You work hard, love your family. Be patient. Give back.

IS IT WORTH THE EXTRA MONEY TO BUY ORGANIC BEDDING?

IS IT WORTH THE EXTRA MONEY TO BUY ORGANIC BEDDING?

zig zag baby blanket woolf with meIt depends on your own wants and values—and your budget. The difference between organic cotton and the regular kind is that organic is farmed without the use of pesticides, so it's less likely that chemicals will come into contact with baby's skin if his clothes and sheets are organic🌿 Did you know that cotton farming accounts for more than 10 percent of the pesticide use in the world. Releasing those toxins into the air, earth and water is considered bad for the environment—another reason to choose organic. -thebump

COASTAL INSPIRED NURSERY

 

"One thing's certainly for sure, babies need lots of space for all of their essential stuff! Between diapers, toys, clothing and furniture, a nursery ends up being home to far more than just a precious brand-new babe.

Faced with the challenge of finding room for their new son, Cruz, Jacquelyn Kazas (who works by day as the owner and creative director of Beijos Events) decided to get extra creative by carving out a nursery in her attached master bedroom office." Go to Glitter Guide to read more...

PREORDER: ORGANIC FLEECE BABY BLANKET

PREORDER: ORGANIC FLEECE BABY BLANKET

Friends & Family~ We are proud to announce the PREORDER launch of our first Organic Cotton Fleece Baby Blanket. Ready to ship very soon in two colors. Pre-washed and super soft with a vintage look.

We all remember those special blankets and stuffed animals that came with us on trips, playdates, or finished off the perfect fort in the living room. We were inspired by this and made this blanket to specifically suit these purposes. We created this piece from start to finish designing the thickness, softness, colors, print and size to be perfect for parents and kids everywhere. This is the perfect blanket for keeping the kiddos warm in the stroller, blocking out sunlight, laying down for play or diaper changes, or just running around the house with it like a cape.

This is a stepping stone. For the past 2 years Woolf With Me® has been selling products made to order, but now we must grow and meet the needs of more families. We have big plans to create many more products, but we can only do that with the help of our faithful friends and customers who have been pushing us to keep going since the beginning. Please do us a favor and buy/share/gift these blankets so we can sell through and introduce more fantastic products.

We plan to stay American Made and Certified Organic. We want to listen to our friends and customers and create products that will make our children happy. We started this company out of love- building a future for our kids and family, and our passion for art and creativity.

All of our customers and friends have been such a huge inspiration. We can't thank you enough for sending us beautiful pictures of your children, letting us see your newborns so young and sweet still in the hospital wrapped in our blankets, and watching them grow. It's been an amazing treat to be so connected to everyone through social media. We love you all and hope to stay in touch as your kids grow.
