For anyone that knows me, I get very easily excited (which may be a gross understatement). This week I’m extremely excited, not only because Baby Saunders will make an arrival very soon but Kohl’s Department Stores launched their new Kohl’s Cares for Kids merchandise and this season’s theme is none other than The Hungry Caterpillar and other Eric Carle books with accompanying stuffed animals. I know…might not sound that exciting to you but to me – it’s a sign.
We decorated Baby Saunder’s bedroom in a Hungry Caterpillar and Eric Carle theme because I thought it was a nice, gender neutral theme and I’m also the daughter of teachers and wanted to sneak that literary feature in right away.
But the other side of this exciting merchandise is that proceeds from our local Kohl’s Department Stores benefit Dayton Children’s and our health and safety programs which include our Kohl’s a Minute of Kids campaign which is one aspect of my job…see - a double whammy!
So while I’m over the moon for what some people might consider simply books and stuffed animals, this is another place where my professional meets my personal and that is exciting to me!
