Water safety tips from my girl

While we all enjoy the water when the weather is hot, it is important to remember the rules to keep our families safe.

Safety rules for kids around water:

  1. Always swim with an adult or responsible person watching you.
  2. Learn how to swim. (Classes are available through the city.)
  3. Learn how to tread water, float and get out of the pool.
  4. Stay away from pool and hot tub drains.
  5. Tie up long hair securely to keep it from being caught in drains.
  6. Never run, push or jump on others in the pool.
  7. Never dive in water less than nine feet deep.
  8. Always wear sunscreen.

Now that your kids are versed in the rules, find a cute swimsuit and cover up here at my girl. From fun florals to cute stripes, we have one and two piece suits for 3-12 year olds.

Now jump in! and Splash!

We are putting our best foot forward for spring, sprucing up the tootsies and polishing the little piggies. Shouldn't your little girl do the same? A mom and daughter spa night sounds just divine. Share a few laughs and tickles while painting each other's toes. Don't worry, polish remover will take the messups off your ankles. And don't forget to play this little piggy!

Now to show off those cute tootsies:

L'Amour sandals in white, silver and pink. Celebrate spring coming with cute new sandals.
Silver and brown classic mary janes are perfect for that dressy occasion when a girl should be comfortable as well as stylish. These are super soft leather with a velcro adjustable closure.
They're also on sale for only $18.00.

I'll always finish with my favorite. We only have one pair left of the Morgan and Milo sparkle tennis shoe in bronze. Size 13.5 Update: these are on hold now.
We hope spring is treating you well and you are enjoying the sunshine and flowers.

Green for St. Patrick's Day

We hope you enjoyed some corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread and possibly a nice stout beer to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
Here at my girl, we're thinking of green a little differently now. Green, environmentally conscious, eco friendly, sustainable. How can we impact our world in a positive way?
Barbara Kingsolver's book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle details her journey from living just like everyone else, to raising and sourcing all her family's food within a 100 mile radius for one year. Her book gives practical ideas, silly stories and some great recipes. While initially it seems kind of crazy to make such an abrupt change, by the end of the book I was hooked. I felt that it was indeed possible to source more locally and less from afar. While I don't have my own chickens, yet (my husband is NOT on board yet) I loved reading about Barbara Kingsolver's journey and feel inspired to improve my own life a bit.
And as a bit of local shopping inspiration we're offering a $5.00 gift certificate for every $25.00 you spend her at my girl.

Book Review: Girls Hold Up This World

We are sisters of this Earth- members of one powerful tribe.

Every color, age and size, we're united by beauty inside.

Jada Pinkett Smith's (yes, THAT Jada) lovely poem "Girls Hold Up This World" has been wonderfully adapted into a beautiful picture book for girls of all ages. This is a book to share with mothers, daughters, aunts and more.

The pictures show girls doing what girls do, karate, cartwheels, yoga, basketball. Reaching beyond just "beautiful" pictures the book shows love and care for girls of all backgrounds.

The poem is easily understood, even for the kindergarten set and wonderful read aloud.

Anyone looking for an affirming book for girls of all colors can find what they're looking for in this book.
