Catching Up

As you can guess, it's been busy here at Bamboobino.

In January, one of our Bamboobino gals Robyn gave birth to her beautiful baby boy William - one month early! Congratulations again Robyn!

In February, Vancouver welcomed the world by hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics. Orders were pouring in full swing by now, and in all the "busyness" I made it a point to get out with the kids and enjoy the festivities as much as possible. The kids loved staying up way past their bedtime on some nights! Although I had some reservations about our city hosting this expensive event, it was really a wonderful opportunity to educate the kids about countries, sports, fair play, teamwork and community.

In March, even after the big party was over, the kids were still high in Olympic spirits and continued the party at our house. Our cardboard medals continued to be won and our paper and tissue torch burned on!

And just when I thought I could catch up on some sleep, we welcomed another 9 new retailers - from San Francisco to Montreal!

Which brings us to April. We're busy again, Spring cleaning and preparing for Earth Day. In a couple of rare baby show appearances, we will be clearing out slightly imperfect stock at heavily discounted prices at Birth Fest (April 10) and Babyvibe's Spring Fair (May 15). We've also got baskets of goodies to be won from Lunapads, Silk Concept, Liduccia Jewelry, Momma Nature and Mom Cafe.

In celebration of Earth Day, I'll be helping out again at an elementary school's Earth Day assembly. Their Environmental Club will be presenting the year's summary of their wonderful environmental projects and a fun fashion show of eco-friendly clothing and recycled accessories. A special thanks to Granville Island's Organix and Scraps Vancouver for sponsoring our fashion show!

Enjoy your Earth Day this Thursday...
