The best job in the world

Our Director of Play and Founder Traci Costa recently shared this message in our monthly Beans Bulletin. It was a message I can so relate to, as I’ve been there – in a job that I was miserable in for far too long. I’m so fortunate to now be doing something that I love! Owning my own business as a Play Stylist brings me so much joy. Read Traci’s message about we can have it all;  a job we love, a family too, and the best working environment in the world :

message from traci“How many of you had dreaded going to a job, have cringed when the alarm goes off, felt sad to miss out on an important event in your Beans lives. Or maybe you have a job that you love, but want something to channel your inner entrepreneur, a creative or social outlet, to be part of your community, to make something yours.

At some point, we have all been there. Paid our dues, put in our time for someone else, learned our lessons, worked hard, had a boss that didn’t treat people right. I have been there. It is one of the reasons I am so passionate about creating a working opportunity for women, and particularly for mothers. Why can’t work be fun, why can’t we make a difference, why can’t we embrace the people, create goals, achieve them in business and personally. Why can’t we be a stand for the best work environments for mothers, at the Playground or by creating self employment opportunities for women and mothers everywhere.

So I say it again, find what you do, and it will never feel like a day of work ever……create your own destiny, be your own boss, join a family that cares. Peekaboo Beans cares. I care.

So here I am today, asking you to help make a difference in the world, with me. Together. Let’s be the change. Lets:

  • Be a reminder everyday to give children space, time and freedom to find themselves, to find their strengths, weaknesses, and to fall down and get back up. Play is their work. Play is what children do when we stop telling them what to do, where to be, or who to be with.
  • Be a stand for a quality product – by choosing a Company that respects our customer’s money and values that they want to spend their hard earned dollars on our product. A Company that thinks about the way children move, jump, bend, run, skip, and play, but also fosters independence.  A Company that believes in children and thinks about what is best for them.  A Company that puts family first.  A product that is quality and not consumable.  Produced with love and care.
  • Be a stand for creating the best working environments that fosters people, values, and gives back and is socially responsible.

We can have all this, we can do all this. All we have to do is share our story, share our passion. All we have to do is believe. But we have to do this together. One vine. Standing together through thick and thin. I will continue to spread the joy, to be a stand for our product and be a stand for my Beans and yours.

In love and play,

The playdate Soirée

I remember being on maternity leave with my son and meeting a mom who told me she absolutely loathed having playdates. Something about the small talk with other moms you don’t know well, the chaos of kids and the whirlwind of toys left behind that wasn’t appealing to her. I could never really understand why though, because for me a playdate is is just as beneficial for me as a mom as it is for my kids!

Playdates were always a great opportunity to be around other moms who were going through the same experiences as I was. Whether it was someone else to talk about how to get my baby to sleep through the night, or what preschool programs were best, having someone else to bounce tips and tricks of parenting around with was so important to me.  It was also great company for those long days of being home alone with a baby.

But it was also so amazing to watch our kids grow together – we’d line them up on the couch and take monthly photos to see how they were growing. Our playdates always involved coffee and food too!

Now that all these babies are older, our playdates have changed.  They don’t happen as often, and are a little bit louder, but they are just as rewarding for me and the kids. I get to catch up with friends, and my kids have playmates to get lost in imaginations with! They play dress up, or play with playmobile, or run around making up their own games (and messes!)

Since becoming a Peekaboo Beans Play Stylist, playdates have taken on a whole new meaning. When I’m at a Playdate Soirée,  I really enjoy watching the kids get excited about trying on clothing and modeling outfits for each other. I also enjoy listening to other moms share those familiar stories of sleepless nights and how to creatively hide veggies in food! The Playdate Soiree is just one more opportunity for moms to get together with their kids and enjoy an afternoon of chatting, catching up, playing and shopping!

A Peekaboo Beans Playdate Soirée is a personal shopping experience where you can view the entire  Peekaboo Beans award winning playwear collection … while your kids play!  You can host a Soirée in your home and earn free clothing for your own children. The whole thing takes about 2-3 hours, and is a lot of fun. I arrive with my samples and display to set up 30-45 mins ahead of time. Then your guests, friends and neighbours would arrive to view the collection. I don’t usually do a formal presenation, just a quick demonstration of some of the great product features that your kids will love.  The best part is the FREE clothing  that you’ll earn – up to 25% of the sales in free clothing as well as 4 half priced items! It’s a great way to outfit your kids for the season, in a shopping experience  that meets your needs and your schedule.

Yes I’d love to host a Playdate Soirée!

I am now booking Spring Soirées, contact me to reserve your date: or 613-218-6699
