So what’s in our designs? From the looks of it, water-base ink and a funky splash of polka dots. That’s bound to get your attention right? The stereo-typical kid’s clothes are always some how “spunky” and —adorable—, but what if they contained more?
We are determined to be “more” than the cute polka dots and ruffled sleeves. We want to make a point, not only to our kids, but to the world.
So, the answer to the above question is…. our hearts. Our designs are beating with our own personal hearts, beliefs, and inspiration.
The latest design, may seem like a collaboration of pretty words, but once absorbed, you’ll notice that these words, these simple, “floating” words— that bring me joy just reading, are merely directions for any form of success in this world.
What’s a dream, if you do not believe in it?
And what happens, if you do not create something from the dream that’s carrying your heart?
The answer….. the problem that millions of individuals are facing today— broken ambitions, and lost confidence.
Does that break your heart? Do you feel your stomach dropping to the floor?
Maybe you ((get us)) or maybe you are just a fan of the “style,” either way, we hope you enjoy our latest design, and more than anything, we hope that when you kiss your babies good night, you assure them that if they wanted it, they could have the world.

Good Morning, friends!
As I looked through Babee Producks website www.babeeproducks.net and even watched their cute YouTube video about “Dreaming Big” for our littles, I felt inspired.
The last couple weeks we have hit quite the milestone: we have sent our oldest, Avery, off to Kindergarten. If you’re interested in reading my ridiculously long, wordy, emotional account of that week you can go to http://theboonefam.blogspot.com/2012/08/kindergarten.html?m=0 . We’ve talked her little head off about the highs and lows of her day, quizzing her if she has remembered her manners, if she ate her lunch, was she being kind, etc. It’s already rocking my world that she’s in a place now, for most of her awake hours really, that is going to have a greater sphere of influence than I have. That now I’m relying on her to make good decisions and apply all the little and big things we’ve been encouraging her with the last five years. It’s mind-blowing for me. Did I do enough? Can we ever do enough?
I think I just gave myself a migraine …
I’m realizing that she is her own little person. From her “Punky Brewster” style ensembles she dons everyday to the infectious giggles pouring out of her as she jumps off the bus. She’s in a whole new world that I only get glimpses of through the windows she lets me peek into.
I feel like my words have to pack more meaning now, and absolutely have to be backed with action. The whole “more is caught than taught” idea is like a blinking red light on my forehead. She’s got lots of other voices in her head now and I don’t want to just be one of a bunch … Lost in the crowd. As she starts figuring out who she is and who she wants to be, I want to guide her down the best path for her, without throwing in what I want her to be for my own agenda. But, just encouraging her to be the best Avery she can.
As we were day dreaming about the first day of school a couple weeks ago I gave her a little survey I found on Pinterest. She loves anything that sounds “schoolish” and I love hearing and recording her little answers. One of the questions was inevitably, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” She rattled off at least five answers, ending with “I’m going to be really busy. Can I do it all?”
Yes, Avery you can. You can do it all. And I’ll be cheering you on every step of the way.
