We were featured in The Daily Mom! Here's an excerpt from the full article on Spring Clothes for Kids:
We love outfits for girls that encourage them to be whoever they want to be. From astronauts to scientists, your little lady has a world of opportunity in front of her. Princess Awesome is innovating girls clothing, using patterns featuring all her favorite activities in styles that are perfect for both spring outings to the museum or even family Easter photos.
For young paleontologists we love She-Rex Twirly Play Dress. Featuring T-Rex, Stegosaurus and Triceratops her mind will be full of adventures and just thinking about the Paleolithic world depicted on her skirt. Deep pockets give her room for traveling with all her favorite fossils. Made from 100% cotton in Chicago, Illinois you'll love how easy it is to care for this dress.
Even the freshly 'hatched' can get in on the fun with Princess Awesome's entire line of matching infant wear. Starting at just 3 month's it's never to young to start planning for a future in science. The She-Rex Snapsuit Dress is easy on and off with a darling twirl skirt that matches her big sister.
When Mama-saurus is ready to head out with her little reptiles the She-Rex infinity scarfmakes a love of dinosaurs a family affair. The bright colors compliment any outfit and ensure that she'll be just as stylish as even the littlest scientist.

Our guest blogger, Katie, is a student from FIRST Chesapeake, a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring the next generation of technology leaders. Using the robot as the vehicle, FIRST Chesapeake reinforces Science and Math concepts through hands on learning while teaching valuable life skills such as leadership, teamwork, and creative thinking. FIRST Chesapeake impacts over 7,000 middle and high school students in DC, Virginia and Maryland.
Known as the “hardest fun you’ll ever have,” Katie competes on a local FIRST Robotics Competition team. Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six-week time limit, teams of 20 or more students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors.

Let’s face it: for the first few years, we get to pick their clothes because it’s not as if they are going to say, Mother, I despise pink and wish you would not put it on my person. Thank you and good night.
No, they can’t, so we decorate their rooms with pink and green and decide that the theme for their room will be frogs, and we just have to wait for the day (she is two now, so maybe when she is 5?) she will say, “Mom, I don’t like frogs.” So at that point, maybe we will re-decorate with ducks and rockets….? Or something completely different?

An interview with children's authors Shannon and Dean Hale
Shannon and Dean: I think the idea of “princesses” that some parents react against is the submissive girl who does nothing but wait to be saved by a man. But in truth, there are almost no stories like that in the past fifty years. A princess is a girl with power—political power, social power. And a princess is a girl with fun accessories—like unicorn pets and sparkly gowns and fairy godmothers! I fear that some reactions against princesses are reactions against femininity—that the “best” girls are the ones who exhibit traditionally masculine traits and have traditionally masculine interests. I push back against that. Please don’t shame kids for having feminine interests or fascinations with princesses. Again, let them be both!
