As told by our winner, Jen G.:

A hand-colored heart, to which the first pack of gum was taped...

A couple of years ago, my then-5-year-old daughter asked what I wanted for Mother’s Day.  Since money was tight, our house was a mess (in part because we had too many “things” already), and I honestly couldn’t think of anything I needed or wanted anyway, I just asked that she and her brothers make something for me.  Pre-school was always great about helping the Kids make gifts, and I treasure all of the holiday items they’ve made through the years.  Apparently my Kids were more observant than I gave them credit for because, when I arrived at daycare to pick them up one afternoon, I noticed a big poster board on which the teachers had written responses to “What does your Mommy want for Mother’s Day?”  There were nearly 20 responses, each one-upping the last:  “Dinner; Dinner in a restaurant; Dinner and a Show; Spa Day; Weekend in Tahoe; Earrings; Diamond Earrings; Hearts on Fire Diamonds; A Convertible.”  Then I saw my Kids’ entry:  “Gum”.  It was perfect, not only for the should’ve-been-embarrassed-but-was-actually-quite-proud grin I couldn’t get off my face the rest of the day, but because I really do love gum.  Flowers are temporary, fashion is fleeting, but gum has the shelf-life of Twinkies, which means it’ll be around forever.  When I no longer have the teeth to chew it, I’ll still have a big, silly grin on my face every time I find a pack of gum tucked away on a shelf in my closet, next to the half-painted jewelry box from 2008, the scented homemade bath salts from 2004, and the small, multi-colored, possibly ceramic blob from 2003.  Maybe this year I’ll get cinnamon.

Breakfast in bed starts a day full of gifts on Mother's Day...

Breakfast in bed starts a day full of gifts on Mother's Day... 😉

I laughed reading Jamee’s post about her very first Mother’s Day present from her then three year old daughter. Given that Jamee’s a fabulous graphic designer (one of her many talents), I understood why her husband awaited her reaction with some trepidation — but mom’s love transcends even some of the tackiest style disasters! 😉

Jake and Kate with Daddy

Jake and big sister, Kate, with Daddy

We’re very excited to learn that one of our le•top and rabbitmoon Favorites Contest winners, Marissa C., gave birth to a tiny bundle of joy recently. Jake Thomas arrived on Monday, March 23 at 7:43 am. He weighed in at 7 pounds, 1 ounce and was 18 1/2 inches long. Happy Birthday, Jake! Marissa wrote to say he is still too small to wear the clothes she chose as part of her contest win, but as soon as he’s big enough, we’ll be getting more photos. Thanks for sharing, Marrissa, and congratulations to you and your family!

Rad Reptile

Bold reptile shirt and woven explorer shorts from le•top Rad Reptiles Collection. Click on photo to see more from this fun collection.

Our third Secret Contest winner (for having the most hits as a Daily Darling) was Marc and Kristin C.‘s son, Caden. This little boy so entertained us as a Daily Darling that we made him our mascot for our “le•top Takes: Out of the Mouths of Babes” series. And we didn’t really send him slimy reptiles as his prize, but this fun outfit from our Rad Reptiles collection (le•top Spring 09). This collection is in stores now, so use our store locator to find a le•top retailer near you. Caden lives in Boston, so we’ll probably have to wait for the weather to warm up there, but we can’t wait to see Caden in this outfit!

Remember that we have Secret Contests going on all the time. Because they’re secret, you never know you’re in a contest until we announce the winners! You might win for any reason, but it’s always because you spend time with us here at le•top blog, and you let us know you’re out there by commenting, submitting photos, sharing stories, recipes, funny quotes from your kids or grandkids…so please keep shareing with us…you might be the next winner!

le•top baby: 12x14 soft soft security blanket in Pink and White

le•top baby: 12 x 14 soft soft security blanket in Pink and White

Nadine’s Magic Blanket email from her mom started us thinking about a fun giveaway contest. Do you have your own “blankie” stories? Whether it’s a story like Kristin’s two roommates coming to college with their childhood blankies, or Nadine’s Magic Blanket, we’d love to hear about them, so please share! We’re giving away sets of two little blankets (an heir and a spare) from le•top baby. We make them intentionally little with “security blanket” needs in mind…soft, warm and comforting, but durable and perfectly sized…that way, it doesn’t get dragged around on the ground so much, and it doesn’t take up so much space! Tell us your “blankie” stories and you might win a soft new set! Click here to share.
