When our daughter was in Kindergarten her teacher was concerned about her lack of focus and attention. We were frustrated at home as well when she would ignore us. The following year her First Grade teacher was concerned, too.
But this time she said the word “seizure.”
It never occurred to us that there was actually a legitimate reason for her to not listen! Luckily we live very close to Seattle Children’s Hospital and got connected with a wonderful Pediatric Neurologist.
This little dynamo explains her Epilepsy as her “brain hibernating for a little bit.” She isn’t always aware of when her seizures occur, but when she realizes she missed out on something while her “brain was hibernating” she gets scared and confused. It’s heartbreaking!
But she takes pride in wearing her brain outfit from Princess Awesome because it gives her an opportunity to explain what Epilepsy is to her friends. And of course she has always loved purple! She says all her Princess Awesome clothes (we’re very loyal!) are “super soft and comfy, like pajamas.”
She has always had sensory issues, too, so waistbands and seams have to be just right for her to wear the clothes. This is the only brand that we have had zero sensory problems with. Thank you so much for all the thought that goes into each and every design.

About a week ago, a very kind customer wrote in to say that two of the "Hello Chum" sharks dresses she received in the mail had two strange discolorations on the skirt. They seemed to line up perfectly with the tape that was on the clear plastic bag holding each dress.
"That's so strange!" we wrote back, and immediately sent her two new dresses assuming it was some one-off problem with the dresses she had received. But after we heard from another customer with the same problem, and the first woman's replacement dresses ALSO had these strange discolorations, we knew something was up.
