One of the most surprising aspects of motherhood for me, personally, wasn’t the way it changed my daily routine, sleep schedule and work choices — it was how it changed my mind. And the older he gets, the more astounded I am with our world, our species, our future; with his unique qualities and potential.
When it comes to clothing, there are some new toddler shirts designed to tug at our hearts and open our minds. Here are the top 5 most meaningful and intelligent from the brand new line of Sweet Spud* toddler shirts, and a few favorites from Tiny Revolution**:
“My life is my message” -Ghandi
This new toddler tee from Sweet Spud is a bigger version of their popular onesie, recognizing the immense potential in each of these little lives.
“A child without courage is like a night without stars” – Buddha
This tee from Tiny Revolution is based on the Buddhist idea that children have the most courageous spirit we’ll ever have — before life inevitably causes us to lose touch with it.
“You already possess everything necessary to become great.” -Native American
This brand new design from Sweet Spud is a nice reminder for parents who stress about the top preschools, language development and future SAT scores.
“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” -Native American
This Native American proverb is profound on its own, but even more so when a child bears the message. (I know the boy in the picture looks like a young adult, but this Tiny Revolution shirt comes in sizes 6 months – 4T.)
“Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.” – William Butler Yeats
I’m not sure why, but this new design from Sweet Spud really gets me. Children have such an endless imagination, where nothing is out of reach. If only it could stay that way forever.
