Today, we decided this was the best way to handle the clouds and the humidity and the mud and the rain.

Today, we decided this is how you embrace what you’re given.

Today, we made the Fed Ex man look at us sideways and made our retired snowbird neighbor burst out laughing.

These are the things which fill a muggy, dark afternoon spring to overflowing.

GIVEAWAY :: Win a Pair of Children’s Rain Boots from Poco Nido!

Aveline from Oaxacaborn wears the new Poco Nido cat wellies // Click through for a Giveaway! #PocoNido #Oaxacaborn

Ever since these wonderful wellies arrived in the mail from Poco Nido in the UK (did you see me Instagram the awesome packaging?), Aveline has scarcely let them out of her sight. She’s worn her beloved new boots indoors to dance, outdoors to splash, in the car, and has even taken them with her to bed. Yesterday, I spotted her trying her to hang both boots on the Christmas tree.

Why is she so enamored? Well, based on all the loud “meow!” sounds, I know she likes the smiling kitty-cats. But I think her favorite thing is the fact these are the only shoes she’s ever been able to put on and take off all by herself. To a toddler (and to mamas of toddlers!) that’s a really, really big deal.

What’s my favorite thing about Poco Nido boots? They’re 100% rubber, which means no plastic fumes wafting around. And since Poco Nido products aren’t mass-manufactured, they’re all limited edition. (They make cloth baby shoes and children’s clothing, too!)

Now here’s the really fun bit.

YOU can win a pair of Poco Nido wellies for your adorable little!

There are both cat and owl patterns to be had, in infant sizes UK 4-10 / US 4.5-10.5 / EUR 20-28. We picked the more boyish-looking cats, but as you can see Aveline and her green skirt had no trouble turning them into a properly girlish accessory. Which would you choose if you won?
