Back in 2009, Peekaboo Beans released this gorgeous Winter Bliss dress. It was part of an Award Winning collection and instantly became a fan favourite. It’s not hard to see why, the rich purple with soft pinks and greys coordinate perfectly. The colour blocking, and front pocket with gathering add original details. Our custom fabric, made with a cotton/spandex blend is soft, comfortable and durable for all kinds of play!
They are highly coveted, and if you can find one, you can expect to pay a lot for it (and resell it too!) Since this dress was released, I have seen it resale for upwards of $250! (I’m not kidding!)
You can imagine how thrilled we were back in Winter 2014 to see a newly redesigned Bliss Dress! It had the same great shape, unique front pocket, but just a hint of the colour blocking we all loved so much.
Once again, Peekaboo Beans has done it! They’ve brought back a classic fan favourite! This version is sure to be a sell out, so if you like it, you’ll want to order one fast!
A vintage 2009 favourite, this cozy style is a great option for winter. Easily throw an In The Mix Tee underneath on those chillier days or keep your hands warm in the pouch pocket! Colour-blocking allows this style to effortlessly mix and match with any of our winter leggings.
The Winter Bliss
Available in Purple Passion or Charcoal (shown)

Do you have a favourite pair of jeans? How many pairs are in your closet? Personally, I haven’t worn jeans in years. The last time I tried some on, they were so uncomfortable – stiff, restrictive and itchy!
I can empathize with the kids who hate jeans. My daughter is one of those kids. She prefers that all her clothes be super soft and cozy. For active kids, who love to move, run and jump while they play, wearing restrictive jeans can impeded on their play!
Peekaboo Beans has once again come to the rescue with our new Bean Jeans! They are the perfect Hangout Pants! They look like jeans, but FEEL like cozy, soft sweat pants! Plus, they have our signature thick elastic waist band,which means there are no buttons or fly to fumble with!
And knowing that kids can be hard on their clothing, these styles feature reinforced knees!
All the look and style of a great pair of jeans in a new custom-developed Bean Jean fabric that is soft, stretchy and Bean approved.
These pants have all the features of our typical pants such as elastic, drawstring waistband and faux fly, as well as reinforeced knees. This fabric is designed to wash and wear like regular denim so fading is normal.

The day has arrived, my kids have gone back to school. I know some parents relish the time being at home with their kids over the summer, but I find it very difficult. My kids are 8, 6 and almost two, so finding activities to keep them entertained at their varying ages and interests was a challenge!
One of my biggest challenges this summer was getting my kids to play outside. After a lot of coaxing to get them out the door, they often only stayed outside for 10 minutes before announcing ‘I’M BORED’ and heading back inside. They were happy to play with lego, games or other toys when I set limits on screen time, but they wanted to be inside. I found this extremely frustrating, but it also made me so sad. Sad that they preferred to play inside than to explore the neighbourhood and meet other kids. Sad that they weren’t experiencing nature, breathing fresh air and running freely. Sad that childhood isn’t what it used to be and that my kids are part of the statistics saying kids are leading more sedentary lives and engaging in active play less than ever before.
I decided I had had enough, and pulled the plug on screens. I announced we were having a screen-free-day. There would be no tv, iPod or iPad for the entire day. I hid the remotes, and the computer mouse, and I put away the ipad. They weren’t happy about it, and there were tears and lots of anger. But we quickly got out the door and headed to the park and screens were forgotten.
I made a few observations throughout the day:
-They didn’t ask for screens. When I told them it wasn’t going to be an option for the whole day, they stopped asking.
-They got along! My older two kids fight constantly, but they actually played together nicely!
-They were less moody! There were no blow ups, and no one snapped or got angry like they usually do when screen time was over.
-They played outside!
-They fell asleep fast and hard! My 8 year old, who usually takes a long time to fall asleep crashed the minute his head hit the pillow!
As a child, I do remember spending days in front of the TV, but I also remember days spent running around in my neighbourhood and at the park. I remember running through sprinklers, biking with friends and exploring the little wooded area behind our neighbourhood. Part of me feels like technology is getting in the way of these childhood experiences. I understand it has it’s benefits, and we can do so much more and connect in so many ways now than ever before. But this summer, I had many moments of wanting to throw out each screen in the house if it meant my kids would just play outside!
So where does that leave me… I don’t feel like I can completely deprive them of technology, it’s not going anywhere. There are opportunities to engage and be social, opportunities to learn and be creative. Not everything online is a time suck and not everything offline is engaging and amazing. But what I need to do, and believe me it’s a constant struggle, is to find the balance between the two so that their childhood is full of all that is out there to experience.
We will be having more screen-free-days in our house, and I am trying to engage them in activities that I like to do and hope they’ll follow my lead.
How do you balance technology use and outside play in your home?

I’ve been reading a lot about sensory issues lately, and today I came across something that made me think.
The Sensory Processing Disorder Parent Support Network posted on their page: How many kiddos here are never thirsty? Or always thirsty? Always hungry or never hungry?
My 6 year old son Joel has a sense of urgency about eating and drinking. He doesn’t seem to notice that he’s thirsty or hungry (or that he needs to pee for that matter) until it is the ABSOLUTE last second! Just like another person who posted on the thread, I’m not sure Joel feels it until he is extremely hungry or thirsty. Today was such a roller coaster ride of ups and downs that all came down to a late breakfast, a later lunch, and not enough snacks or drinks. After I had realized that his explosive meltdown and ensuing laying under the dining room table was related to him being too hungry. I asked him why he didn’t just ask me for a snack. His response? He wanted me to just know that he was hungry without actually telling me? I need to work on being better prepared with snacks on the weekends.
As for peeing, I think most of the time it’s just that he’s too busy playing to take the time to run to the bathroom. So when he does go, it’s a mad dash and panic to get to the toilet before he explodes!
Do your kids tend to have an urgency around eating, drinking and peeing?
