Apologies Are In Order

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Mother Nature has been teasing us the last few days and decided to remind us who is in charge after our blog yesterday regarding breakup. We have seven inches of snow and counting here at Junior Towne this morning. Please remember that we have a good selection of winter hats, mittens, boots and snowsuits that we keep around just for occasions such as this.

On another note, one of our grandmothers sent in this picture of her granddaughter modeling the new crocheted hat with flower bow that she bought the other day. These mix and match combinations are are lots of fun.

Now I need to go out and shovel our sidewalk!

Could It Be BreakUp?

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

….or is the weather just teasing us? At any rate we have a great selection of Muddy Buddy’s in stock. The Muddy Buddy is a one piece, light weight waterproof and breathable playsuit which keeps kids clean, dry and comfortable. It is perfect for our Alaskan weather during Breakup or our summer sometimes known as our rainy season. We have had customers come in and tell us that they have used them for really messy art projects, too!

Attachment Parenting

Monday, February 1st, 2010

We share the same philosophy with our friends at the Ergo Baby Carrier Company: forming and nurturing strong loving connections within our family, friends and community. As long time Alaskans, we realize the importance of forming reliable bonds. The Ergobaby Newsletter directed us to a great site, one of the best we have seen. Attachment Parenting International (API) is a nonprofit with a mission to educate and support all parents in raising secure, joyful and empathetic children in order to strengthen families and create a more compassionate world. Check out their web site at The discussion topics on the left hand side of the page are great and offer many helpful guidelines.  API’s Eight Principles of Parenting are as follows:

-Prepare for pregnancy, birth and parenting
-Feed with love and respect
-Respond with sensitivity
-Use nurturing touch
-Provide consistent and loving care
-Ensure safe sleep, physically and emotionally
-Practice positive discipline
-Strive for balance in personal and family life

Kind of puts it all in a nutshell, doesn’t it? Check them out.
