We love Crazy 8’s new campaign, Shine On, which is all about celebrating individuality and what makes our kids special. They asked us to share the one word we’d describe our big boys and some outfits that help them be comfortable in their own skin, and here’s what we picked!
QUINN: Maybe the best word to describe this kid is ADVENTUROUS. He loves the thrill of life. Whether it’s finding the best shrimp taco, riding the fastest roller coaster or swimming in the ocean searching for sea creatures, he’s always happily looking for the next fun thing to do! Being 8 months pregnant it’s been tough for me to keep up! I really try every day to ensure his adventurous spirit isn’t squashed by my slow self! Since it’s still warm here in Southern California I love all these great layering pieces for when the mornings an evenings are chillier!
HAYES: Hayes is so many things, but the word that really stands out to me is SWEET. As his mom I feel so privileged to see so many quiet moments when no one is looking where his sweet and kind heart really shines. When I catch him tickling his dad’s back out of the corner of my eye. Coming in from school and saying “I missed you today, mom!” When he tells his brother “Good job Cally!” when he wins a game, even though I know Hayes wishes it was him. Leaving a friend’s house and telling me it was because they weren’t being nice to his brother. (Cal scored in the brother department!) Or holding a new baby on his chest for forty-five minutes while his friends play around him. He’s as sweet as they come!
This plaid top has a fur-lined chest, and nylon lined sleeves! It is as good as a coat but perfect for this guy who thinks that coats really cramp his style.
DASH the FEELER:
This boy, he feels more than most. His feelings are tender and his heart is enormous. If someone is hurting, so is he. I’ve seen this demonstrated by Dash daily in the past few years of his life as our family has dealt with some difficult things, Dash has comforted each of us through tears and hard days. He’s tender, yet strong. He can be the rock of the family without us even realizing it. I see him reach out to friends, and notice people in need. I see him cuddle his brother and kiss his momma and do his very best (in his shy little way) to make friends and include everyone. He’s my little feeler. He loves to look sharp (he honestly uses that word when asking how he looks) with a touch of casual (adding a hat an sneakers to his button up is the usual go-to). What’s interesting is he has a very different taste in clothing then me (how is this possible?) and is super adamant on what he wears. From his head to his toes, he chooses, every day.
Crazy 8 is doing a contest that launched this week, and they want to see what one word you use to describe your kids. Post your entries using #ShineOnCrazy8 via Instagram, Twitter, or upload directly to their Facebook page. They’ll be picking winners weekly for gift cards! See more of our guys below!
