Win McBugsley’s Pot o’ Socks

Hi Kids!  Do you what today is?  St. Patrick’s Day!  It’s one of my favorites.  What bug doesn’t love a day dedicated to wearing green!  You know what else St. Patrick’s Day reminds me of?!  A big Pot o’ Gold!!

At SmartKnitKIDS, seamless socks are as good as gold.  So, to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Bugsette and I put together a big Pot o’ Socks for one lucky kiddo out there!  We’re so excited about the Pot o’ Socks and hopefully you are, too.

Here’s how to play.  See the photo of the big Pot o’ Socks?  Guess how many individual socks you think ol’ McBugsley was able to fit in the pot.  Click on the link below and have Mom and Dad help you make your guess.  The closest guess without going over wins the pot!  (Ties will go to the earliest guesser.) ***

(Mom and Dad, the Pot o’ Socks will also include a $25 gift card to
SmartKnit.com.)

Let the guessing begin!

Seamlessly Yours!

What Bugs Me

Since I’m a bug, everyone always asks me, “What bugs you?” The obvious is sock seams, but I’m a deeper bug than that. Itchy sweaters bother me, mean people, and most of all cauliflower. No matter how many times I try it, I hate it. (No offense to all the cauliflower lovers out there). Itchy sweaters are also the worst. I have sensory issues so sweaters that feel like I am in a ball of scratchy wool are not my favorite. Mean people are also not at the top of my list. I think everyone needs to be treated with respect regardless of any condition. That’s what bugs me. It might not be what you expected, but my mom raised me to be an honest bug.

Autism Research

My employer, SmartKnitKIDS, believes in Autism research. As many of you know, sensory issues can be associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Our socks have been great in the Autism Community. Since they are seamless, there is nothing to irate the toes. Our form-fitting design means the socks gently “hug” the foot. The closeness and the pressure that the socks provide are often soothing to a child.

This morning I came across an Autism research group call EARLI. They are studying how environmental factors and genetic susceptibility are related by studying families with Autistic child who plan to have another baby. The more information we have the better. Knowledge is power, right? If you’re interested, please take a look at their site. http://www.earlistudy.org/

Things Moms Like

I love socks. I would live in a big, comfy sock if I could. Better yet, a city made of socks. (It would be so soft. No more scrapped knees when I fall) That’s why I like SmartKnitKIDS socks so much; they’re so comfy and they don’t bother my toes. I know many of you may not believe me when I enthusiastically go on about SmartKnitKIDS socks. I wanted to share a great review of the socks written by Things Moms Like. It’s great website that reviews products, sponsors giveaways, and writes about life. Check out their wonderful review of SmartKnitKIDS Seamless Socks for kids who hate sock seams.

AOTA

Since our blog is so new and I didn’t have a chance to share our experience at AOTA last April, I wanted to do so now. AOTA stands for American Occupational Therapy Association. They have a conference every year and we attended this year. It was very cool. I got to meet and mingle with all the wonderful OT’s. (I was the life of the party) Werecieved some great feedback too. They particularly liked the seamless toe and lack of a heel. The seamless toe doesn’t bother kids with sensory issues and a sock without a heel is easy for any child to slip on. I just love hearing about how SmartKnitKIDS help. It makes me proud to be their front bug.

Above is me in our AOTA booth. I was looking particularly handsome that day. It really was great having the chance to talk to everyone and be at AOTA.

If you’re an OT and would like information about SmartKnitKIDS for your patients, please contact me! I’ll be happy to send a professional resource kit out to you. Please visit us at http://www.smartknitkids.com/professional_resources.html to request a kit today!
