mad hatter

Lucy has been stopped to find out where her adorable hat came from, so we thought it made the most sense to share with Bitsy readers!

Check out Gigi Babies on Etsy. The shop owner can monogram any hat in a variety of colors (acqua, hot pink, khaki, lime, yellow, navy, light pink, white or black to be exact!) with either a circle or script large monogram. When your child grows out of a baby hat this is the next best option and looks super cute on their miniature heads! Great gift idea as well and something that will fit them for a few years. (Prices vary depending on color/style)

Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!

There are many different ways for a mother to say, “I love you” or “Great job” or even “Hang in there”. Well, Bitsy recently came across a company called Mini Messages that touched our hearts in only a way a mother can. Mini Messages are paper napkins with adorable sayings and illustrations. They are a clever way to reach your child while they are at school – pop them in their lunch box or school bag – whether they need something that will make them laugh, a few words of encouragement or just a reminder that you love them.

How the company came to be is what really sparked our interest. A mother of three needed a way to connect with one of her daughters while at school. Her daughter had recently been diagnosed with a learning disability and she felt she needed support to get her through her school day. She decided to start sticking little notes in her lunch box everyday. As time passed she got a bit more creative and started making fun illustrations and catchy sayings to go along with them. Here we are today sharing this mother’s story and providing moms with yet another awesome way to always be with your child/children.

Bitsy has shared some of our favorites, but Mini Messages has a great variety of sayings + illustrations to check out on their website here…Mini Messages! They are fun for all ages + very reasonably priced – a pack of 20 napkins is only $7!
