What a great mom huh? So the dialogue goes like this:
Kids: Mom let's have a snack.
Mom: Ok...how about an apple or some grapes? We also have bananas or some baby carrots?
Kids: Ok...well...hmmm..how about apples with dip?
Mom: Ok we'll have peanut butter!
Kids: Ummm...well...how about some of that caramel stuff too (nutella)?
Mom: (giving in with a sigh)...ok get up to the table.
And the above scene is what ensued! Oh what an eventful Tuesday!

Alicia is wife, mother, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. In 2005, when their second child was an infant, he cried all the time and just couldn't seem to get comfortable.
After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine, they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where their baby was successfully treated for a subluxation, discomfort most likely the result of the strain during labor, which was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. Only proper neck, head, and back alignment would offer him relief. When they couldn't find a product to give their baby the necessary support, Alicia took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!

I am digging back in my blogging archives to share snippets from my days with my precious littles when they were more little.

When kids come home after school to play, they’ll sometimes go straight for the video games or toy sets that don’t leave much room for creativity. But playtime should be a time when kids further develop their skills and it’s a time for learning. We should encourage our kids to use their creativity during playtime and there are several [...]
All children are unique and so special - no two children are exactly alike and they all develop new skills and learn at their own pace. If your child seems to be ahead of her age group when it comes to certain activities or subjects, you may wonder if your child is gifted, meaning that she demonstrates an outstanding [...]
