It’s just been a week since the Boston Marathon bombings, but it feels so much longer. We’re all still spiraling from the aftermath of Sandy Hook, Hurricane Sandy…and now this. My next-door neighbor was one of the marathon runners who bravely set out that day, looking forward to attaining a personal goal, and not realizing that reuniting with her loved ones, safe and unharmed, would be a far more meaningful gift. She showed us the medal she was given for participating, one that I’m sure she will treasure and that will forever serve as a reminder of that fateful day. If your family is looking for a way to show its support for the people of Boston, consider the latest fashion staple from kids’ clothing manufacturer Ba Ba Bling Baby. The company’s cotton T-shirt proudly proclaims, “I may be small, but I am BOSTON STRONG,” along with the Boston Strong yellow and blue ribbon. The tee will be sold for $20, and all proceeds will go to benefit The One Fund Boston, which was set up to aid those affected by the tragic events of April 15, 2013. Boston Strong tees are available in sizes 6-12 mos., 12-18 mos., 2T, 4T, 6 and 8.
In a Nutshell: Even if your baby isn’t from Boston, she can proudly call it her own with a patriotic tee that never goes out of style.
