I was at a real loss on what to write about this week. My chaperoning of the Daisy Scout field trip? The end of the school year? Well, it came to me on Sunday afternoon when Lillyana got her bum stuck in a bucket. Yes, you read the right. Her rear end was wedged into a five gallon bucket that the kids had filled with water and were playing with.
She was hysterical laughing. We all were. Then something so awesome happened. Her bother stepped over to help her get out. Let me tell you, her butt was wedged in there good, and it was her almost 4- year old brother that came to the rescue.
When we found out we were expecting a boy for our second child, I have to admit I was nervous. I grew up with sister as a sibling. My mom comes from a family of six girls. How would Lillyana deal with having a brother?
I have now realized there was never any reason to worry. They get along like me and my sister always did. They play well together. Enjoy each others company and most importantly help each other out when needed.
It was daddy that was needed to get her out - all while we were still laughing - but the photographic evidence shows that it was the one she occasionally calls "a pest" that was the true hero. Brothers - always there - especially when your butt is stuck in a bucket.

This is the first thing I saw when perusing the 50th anniversary issue of the Smithsonian magazine for April 2020. This eye-opening 10-page article (with spectacular photos) is titled, “The Ship in the Ice” and concerns a topic we’ve all been hearing about for years, e.g., global warming.
The pandemic this year has affected all of us in many ways. Two things that stand out in my mind: people definitely need people (to paraphrase the song “People” sung by Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl). The phone, email, computer, TV and all the other digital creations we use DO NOT take the place of human interaction. We all need to see and talk to each other. That said we have also learned that we can work at home very efficiently and handle our normal workload if necessary. Never commute again? I don’t think that will happen, but perhaps we’ll find a happy medium – time will tell.
I have often found that when a person achieves incredible success – after a long struggle – the back-story is almost as fascinating as the achievement itself. That’s why I was interested in, yet another, Andy Warhol write-up that appeared in the May 2020 issue of the Smithsonian magazine.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
