One of the best holidays of the year is JUST around the corner…MOTHER’S DAY! Not a Top Chef and want to get the kids involved? Here is a fun idea to surprise mommy with breakfast in bed…or vice-versa…if you want to be a super mommy on Mother’s Day, make this fun breakfast for the family.

Idea:

  1. Using a cookie cutter in the shape of a heart or just simply use a knife, cut out a small heart shape from the center of a thick slice of bread (make it wheat for a healthy morning breakfast). Spread each side of the bread with butter.
  2. Heat skillet over medium heat. 
  3. Saute bread until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Lower heat and gently flip toast. 
  4. Break an egg into the heart-shaped hole. Cover the skillet with a lid and cook until egg white turns opaque white, which is about 5 or so minutes. 
  5. Transfer to plate along with the heart-shaped piece of cutout bread. Add some nice fruit on the side and even a flower from the garden to make her smile. Finish with a big hug for mommy. Ta-dah!

Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Jane Krakowski, 42, of 30 Rock has welcomed a baby boy with fiancé Robert Godley, a British menswear designer. We think our Le Top Baby “Set Sail!” Collection terry hooded jacket and pants would be perfect to bundle him up in his new home. It is a sweet ensemble just in time for the coming Memorial Day holiday. 

She gave birth to Bennett Robert Godley on Wednesday, April 13 in New York City. Their baby boy has blond hair like Mom and weighed in at 7 lbs., 12 oz. This is a first child for both parents.

“Bennett is an amazing, healthy sweet boy and we are both just crazy in love with him,” Krakowski told PEOPLE.

Krakowski and Godley, who have been dating since 2008 were engaged over the holidays and made the announcement in January, the baby news followed quickly after.

Unless you don’t have a TV, computer, Twitter, Facebook, radio or some sort of news source…you must be inundated by the news on the upcoming royal wedding. With all of the hype, and the likelihood that you will tune in this Friday to see Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, I figured why not make princess crowns like Kate’s for your little girl and turn it into an even more festive occasion (other than popcorn in front of the TV). Here is how to make a Foil-and-Paper Crown that is just PERFECT for this Friday’s special day!

p.s. – what little girl doesn’t like to dress up as ‘princess’? 🙂

Items Needed:

–        aluminum foil
–        colored tissue paper of your child’s choice
–        stickers and or gems from a local craft store
–        glue
–        tape

Crowns How-To

  1. Tear off aluminum foil 20 inches long. Fold in half twice, long sides together, or cuff; lay cuff with opening toward top.
  2. Fold 20-inch-wide tissue paper in half lengthwise twice; lay inside V of the cuff, folded edge up, so bottom edge is just below center of cuff.
  3. Fold foil strip in half again, folding up from the bottom (this will hold the tissue in place).
  4. Cut flat-topped points in tissue paper, leaving attached at the fold, and decorate with stickers or fake gems from a local craft store.
  5. Overlap ends to proper size, and slip one end of foil inside the other. Tape or glue together.
  6. Feel free to add jewels from your local craft store to add some “bling, bling”!

Paulo is wearing Chameleon Camouflage from Le Top’s 2011 Spring/Summer Collection.

I love when Paulo’s Mommy & Me class does activities for special holidays. It prepares him for the real deal when my family celebrates it at home. Yesterday, his teacher had an Easter egg hunt, arts and crafts, a bubble party, and a potluck snack time.

This is the first year that Paulo “gets” the egg hunt. He went out during recess with his Disney Cars pail and went on a search for colorful “balls” (as he would call the eggs). Each child gets to find a dozen eggs, but after Paulo found 3, he decided to ditch the egg hunt and go play on the slide. Oh, well. He doesn’t need all those candy-filled eggs anyway. At the potluck, there were sweet and savory treats. Not surprising, he pointed to the chocolate frosted brownie first. That’s all he wanted on his plate, however I also placed some fruits, cheese, crackers and turkey slices just in case. And SURPRISINGLY, he ate all his cheese and fruit. (Good boy!)

I wish every day could be this much fun. What a happy day!

All of us at Le Top have been missing Kristin and eagerly awaiting the arrival of her little Elijah. Well… it’s official. He was born on Friday a little after 8 A.M. This big boy weighed in at almost 9 pounds. Mom and baby are doing well.

Here is a photo of him wearing Rabbitmoon to his first doctor’s appointment. I’m sure there will be many more photos to come of this handsome boy decked out in all of our fabulous clothes. We can’t wait to see him in person.

Congratulations to the entire family!
