    I just bought the same Base Range bra at Steven Alan when I was in New York. Twins! It's so good – I love Base Range underthings & loungewear.

    Not to be a sammy sad sack, but a word of caution – some (all?) of those oil cloths are not non-toxic in the least. While they are touted as PVC and phthalate free, they are coated in TEFLON, which not only is highly highly toxic, but has been making major headlines lately in the non-toxic community for just how incredibly dangerous it is (EWG has been all over Teflon and Dupont lately). If anything is "water repellent" and coated in anything other than organic beeswax, it should absolutely be avoided. This includes clothing, too.

      Oh, bummer. Too good to be true! I should have investigated that one some more–thanks for being on top of it. Did you see the piece on Parkersburg, West Virginia + DuPont this week? Devasting!

    That CD was a daily listen during our school commute last year. We love it! If you like that, you might like Innocence Mission for bedtime.

      Oh, terrific! Thanks for the recommendation!

    Thanks for the CD recommendation! Always on the hunt for good tunes for shorties. You might also like an album called 'See!' by Holly Throsby, an Australian folk singer who made this tip top album for kids. On high rotation 'round these parts.
