My nine-year-old daughter Stella just spent her second summer at overnight camp, and she left with one request: “Please redo my room!” Just like the story of the shoemaker’s child, since I’m in the children’s design business, my kids’ rooms are not always the projects I feel like tackling in my downtime. But with her tenth birthday around the corner and a little bit of mom guilt, I suddenly felt compelled to create a tween room for my baby girl. (more…)
No, I’m kidding. I definitely don’t want to be a teenager again, but I do wish I had RH TEEN available to me when I was decorating my room as a teen! It’s fun to see companies branching out into these niche markets. While the collection is trying to catch the eye of teens and tweens, many of these pieces would work as great accents in any space.

My daughter turned into a scooting machine this summer. Every time I asked her if she wanted to go outside to play, her first question would be, “Can I please do my scooter?” Needless to say, she has become the fastest three-year-old in the neighborhood on three wheels, and I think it’s about time to trade in her very well-loved hand-me-down Minnie Mouse scooter for a newer model.
If you’re looking for an awesome new scooter too, or if you’re just getting ready to introduce your little one to the wonderful world of scooting, we’ve teamed up with Globber Kids Scooters for an amazing giveaway. Eight Project Junior readers will each win a Globber 3 Wheel Scooter from Globber (a $60 value each).
The shoe struggle in the Saulsbury home is real! Unfortunately, I have blessed both my children with the curse of extra wide feet. It’s something I’ve struggled with my whole life, and now the battle continues with my kids. Not to mention, Addison is a toe walker, so all shoes that aren’t tied down to her feet slip off and are mysteriously destroyed. (more…)
This summer was epic. It was the first time in a long time that we slowed down as a family and took in every moment with the kids. Over the course of the last three months, I’ve watched Blake turn from a baby to a toddler. As a small piece of my heart breaks because the baby years are behind us, the other part is overflowing with joy as I watch him become his own little man. One thing that stands out as he develops is that the struggle of being the youngest is REAL! He is fearless and doesn’t allow his age, or size, prevent him from hanging with his sister and the neighborhood gang. (more…)

You hear it all the time, parents whose kids crawl into bed with them night after night or wake up with the first hint of morning sun. While some parents welcome the pitter patter of feet coming to their door, I know there are others who are surely thinking, I really thought I’d be sleeping through the night by now. (more…)
