It’s Friday and we are all pooped! Plus I am freezing in New York and cannot stand the thought of even stepping outside. Looking for a 30 minute activity to show the one you love how much you care? Make a hand-shaped construction paper card for Valentine’s Day! It could be great way to greet your hubby, wifey, kids and family!

What to do? Send a lovey-dovey message (a.ka. candy sweetheart message) with valentines traced from little hands. Just cut from construction paper, and then decorate. Let the love of your life (your kids) know they are hands-down your favorite.

1.    What was the inspiration behind the name With Child Maternity?
Tarra: We wanted something elegant, yet descriptive so people would know what to expect when they came through the door.

2.    Describe the neighborhood where your store is located. Tell us about Kohler, Wisconsin.
Tara: Kohler is a small village of 2,000 residents. Some people call it Pleasantville! It’s a wonderful, tight-knit, safe community ~ wonderful for raising children. And, we have a lot of tourism because of our 5-Diamond resort and golf courses!

3.    Winter storms have been hitting the nation – for any new mom – what would be 3 essential wardrobe items and 3 must-haves for a new baby to keep him or her toasty?

Tarra: For mom, a nursing pajama set is essential. It’s cozy, comfy, and looks cute if someone visits without warning! For baby, swaddling blankets are a must! Hats are cute and functional too 🙂

4.    Where are your favorite family hangouts in the local Kohler, WI area?
Tarra: For the kids and I, it’s the many parks in our village. For adults, the Horse & Plow at the American Club is always the meeting point!

5.    Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. What is something sweet you do for your kids or grandkids to show them you love them.
Tarra: Lots and lots of kisses! And wonderful gifts, of course! We recommend the Twilight Ladybug and Twilight Turtle ~ so cute!

6.    Surviving yet another winter day in the mid-west, what would be your snow day recommended activity – inside or out?

Tarra: Going to the local children’s’ museum is always a fun way to burn off energy! It’s great for moms, too, because we get to chat.

7.    You recently re-opened your store and will be having a big grand opening next month in March. Tell us about any special events that you have planned at your store and fun deals we can expect.
Tarra: The grand re-opening will kick off with a book signing by the “Cooking Mom” by Amy Hanten. We will be giving away lots of our brand new items and encouraging people to “like” us on Facebook for addition giveaways.

8.     Tell us your best parenting tip or mom advice that your mom passed on to you that you would like to share with a new parent.
Tarra: Never wake a sleeping baby!

9. What is the hottest trend for kids clothes and toys right now?Tarra: Bright colors! Lots of funky colors together too! 

10. What collection or piece from Le Top or Le Top Baby line or Rabbitmoon do you love from the Spring 2011 or Fall collection?
