What I See A Lot On Pinterest – Teepee In The Nursery

Are you a mother of a small child or soon to be one? Well, then you better have a teepee in your nursery or you should go and buy one right about now if you want your nursery to be featured anywhere else than your personal Facebook page. Right now, it is all about Native American décor with a twist (what I call gentrifying Native American art). Just type nursery in your Pinterest account and 90% of the pictures will have some kind of teepee in a corner.

What is the attraction of the teepees? Well, kids love hiding and parents love when they do, so it is a win, win situation, unless the child wants you to crawl into that tiny space and read him/her some books in a very uncomfortable position, in which case you should bring up your old age, and explain in basic words why your back pain kicks in when laying on the floor in any yoga position. After one minute of explanation, your child WILL give up (I have tried it). He or she will decide that it is more fun to go inside the teepee by him/herself (or with sibling in tow) than hearing all that aging nonsense.

Father’s Day T-Shirts

This year I wanted to do something different for Father’s Day. I am kind of bored of the typical child’s crappy craft gift with some bad hand prints on it so I went into Etsy and found these t-shirts. Dad was matching the kids all day with copy + paste shirts. Pretty darn cute! People loved them too. We got a bunch of compliments from strangers (which is the only measure of success, as we all know).

Also, as any parent knows, white T-shirts are not ideal for kids. Actually they are pretty awful, I must say, as they get dirty within 5 seconds of use. That is why I made sure I took these pictures right after they put them on . The rest of the day they had red, purple and brown stains all over, but they were still fun and cute.

Happy Father’s Day to all of fathers out there!
