Happy New Year! 2013!!!

Hey Kitsel Friends!  Let’s Kibitz

 Happy New Year!

Another year has gone by and as I always seem to do when the holiday dust settles, I am in awe of how fast time has flown by!  I began 2012 with a 6 year old son and left it with a 7 year old!  Some days I would like to stop the clock and conversely, on others, I would like to hit the fast forward button!  I have watched my son evolve from a little kindergartner to a big first-grader, one who even knows how to read & spell!  This tidbit was discovered when I was spelling that my son was in a M-O-O-D to my Mother and he turned and said “I am NOT in a MOOD Mommy!”.  Wow- that was quiet the development in our home!  There have been so many more amazing moments that I have discovered with my now 7 year old!  We are playing family board games like Sorry, Life and Monopoly and while it does take a bit of patience at times, it is so fun and really brings us together.  

As a working mom, I am still trying to figure out the work-life balance.  Managing being a “present” mom has been foremost on my mind as I found that technology has made working & playing from everywhere a bit too convenient!  I am reminded constantly of the importance of putting my iPad or iPhone down during conversations and outings with my son!  Its the one nagging I can really appreciate from him although he, too, has learned to covet the ‘ole iPad! 

One of the questions I am constantly asked during this time of year is what new year resolutions I have made.  It’s a question that up until recently I was able to answer with ease….I would whip out a list I inevitably had on my person and read it off!  However, I discovered last year, around mid-year, that I did not have to wait until the “new year” to make resolutions.  That every day was a new day and a fresh start.  So with this in mind, I have embarked on a new tradition and that is to not make resolutions.  Instead I am setting out to live my life with the idea of making each day count and on those days I fall short, to not beat myself up, but begin anew the next morning.  Not having resolutions does not mean that I don’t have goals, but it means that my goals are a lifestyle as opposed to a new beginning.  I am excited to see the progress of my goals and am interested in seeing where I land at this time next year!

Stay Tuned….

Company Overview: It all began with the cry of our newborn, it was October of 2005 and we became parents for the first time. Our son was born with all the usual baby equipment, 10 fingers and toes, a very persistent cry and a little personality that was stronger than we could have ever imagined. It was at that time we knew our little bundle of joy would be different and we set out to find him a wardrobe that would reflect his feisty personality. In our pursuit we found many cool baby clothes that tickled us and effectively defined his character. But the frustration came when we tried to buy several different funny baby t-shirts but couldn’t find them all in one place. That is when our new baby,, was born. Kitsel is the story of young parents looking to give their child style, taste and a sense of humor in a somewhat bland baby world. Our collections have a chic, whimsical feel and combine a parent’s sense of style with a baby or toddlers desire for fun. We think you will love the baby and toddler t shirts we handpicked and hope they will tickle your soul
