I visited last week after a long period of being away and I couldn't believe how great the store looks. Everything a kid could need for Fall was there, plus some. When I was looking around, a song came on that brought me back to a day, years ago, when I was working in the store alone on a rainy and gloomy afternoon. A man came in, probably in his 70s, and needed help picking out a gift for his grand-daughter. This same song started to play then. It's fromNew Orleans Playground by Putumayo, where swing music is combined with kid sounds and voices to make a great kid-friendly CD. When this song came on, the guy told me how he used to always dance to swing music when he was younger. I made the mistake of telling him that I took a few swing dance lessons in high school. He proceeded to convince me to dance with him... in the middle of the store! I tried to convince him otherwise at first, saying it had been years and I have always had two left feet. My pleading didn't work, so we danced. I was horrible, but he was nice and lied, saying I was just fine. For being such a slow and cloudy day, I will always remember him lifting my spirits. I'm pretty sure I haven't swing danced since. It's funny how little moments like that stay with you.
The kids were very cute in their matching hedgehog hair clips. Hedgehogs are sweet critters.
The 4 year old liked the design a lot. The adult (me) wishes it were organic cotton made in the USA.
All three items are Holiday gifts and therefore haven't been opened as yet. So far they have loved everything I have sent then from Cupcake
This was one of the dresses I bought for my grand daughter. The quality is wonderful. She wore this dress with a cute pair of pink cowboy boots!
SO cute. I can't wait to see him wearing them.
