May 2011 Newsletter

Hello everyone!

As many of you know we’ve been settling into our new store in Overland Park, KS.  It was a move that was needed and we are very happy that we made the transition.  We’ve been working on filling the new shelves with more products, adjusting our schedule, working on the online shopping cart, and other little details.  During all of this I was pregnant with our fourth child, who we welcomed into our family on April 16th.  Little Vaylee is amazing and we are so blessed to have her.  I love putting the lil Joey’s and xs Fuzzi Bunz on her little bum.  Her presents is also a nice reminder about caring for newborns in cloth diapers and baby wearing.

We have a VERY active blog!  I am SO excited!  We have several different mamas contributing so there is a nice variety.  I’ve really enjoyed their posts and the interactions with the community.  Come on over and check it out.  We’d love to hear your experiences and replies to the posts.

We are looking for a full time store manager for Happybottomus.  So if you, or someone you know, would be interested in this position please apply on our website.  It’s a great job, especially if you love fluff!  Helping parents with their little ones is so rewarding.

I also have an upcoming Hypnobabies class starting the last week of May.  Please visit my Hypnobabies KC website for more information.  It’s a complete childbirth education course and truly teaches you how to use hypnosis for an easy and comfortable childbirth.  I used Hypnobabies with Tylea and Vaylee and it was amazing.  During contractions I used my hypnosis to create anesthesia in my lower abdomen and I remember thinking how blissful it felt.

Kevin and I have been talking about increasing the number of Diaper Swaps each year.  I put up a poll on the blog(on the right side) so if you would like to give us your input we would appreciate it.  It’s such a popular event and we have a waiting list for sellers so we thought an increase may be needed.

Also we have a discount for you from Fresh Connect!  If you live in the Kansas City area you can have local, all-natural food delivered to you.  It’s an online farmers market that is conveniently delivered to your home or office.  You can visit us at the Waldo’s farmers market on Wednesday’s as well.  Mention Happybottomus discount code LOCALFLUFF2011 to receive $10 off your first order or if you are a current cus tomer email and it will be applied to your next order.  A little thank you for supporting Happybottomus, Fresh Connect, and all the local farmers!  Support Local, Eat Fresh!

Last but not least. Starting Tuesday, May 17th until Saturday, May 21st all of our in stock shoes will be 45% OFF.  So come in and get a GREAT deal on shoes!  See Kai Run, Riley Roo, Jemos, and more brands!  High quality shoes for your little one’s toes!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Spring.  Kevin and I want to thank you for supporting Happybottomus and sharing cloth diapering with our community.  We are touched every day at the store by the parents that visit us.

    I love the idea of a monthly swap. If I can’t make one now, then I feel like I’m really missing out.

    I’d love to work at your store but my baby is a little too small for me to leave. It’s really my dream job, a lucky person will land that one!

    I would love to see some Diaper Swaps on other days than just Saturdays :)
