Karen's sons and Olive before school, celebrating St. Patrick's Day

Karen's sons and Olive before school, celebrating St. Patrick's Day

Take a guess – where were we last week??? New York of course! The sales staff just returned from showing our Fall 2009 Collection at the ENK Children’s Club show – held 4 times a year at the Jacob Javitts Convention Center in New York. We were presenting styles for the upcoming fall season to buyers – and they were eagerly placing orders. Our new collection was a big hit in the Big Apple!

We saw these great “show your green” shirts and couldn’t resist buying them to make all of us feel a wee bit Irish and to surprise Kathy (our ace salesperson and, incidentally, Chris’ sister) who was born on St. Patrick’s Day (yes, she really is part Irish, hence the name Kathleen Ann!).

Here’s what I’ve found doing my own unscientific “research”:

  • We’ve learned that male sperm swim faster, so try for conception the day the woman ovulates so that there is an egg present when the male sperm reaches it.
  • A woman who eats more meat and salty snacks can increase the chances of producing a baby boy.
  • Dads-to-be need to drink up on soda.
  • Women should sleep to the left of their partners.

Share your thought with us. We would love to hear from you.
