To de-stress before my toddler's open heart surgery, I created cozy and cute hospital shirts along with legwarmers and hair bows for her hospital stay and post-care. The nurses and doctors loved the easy front access to check her incision and vitals and other "heart moms" loved how cute she looked. Plus, she was warm and comfy.

I am raising money to donate personalized sets to children facing upcoming surgeries or procedures to help create a sense of normalcy for their families. The donations will cover the cost of the materials to make the shirts, the shipping supplies and the mailing costs. With $1,000, I can make and send more than 100 shirts and legwarmer sets!


Thank you!

Hi everyone! Just a quick update: I have now surpassed 350 Peek-A-Boo-Boo shirts thanks to you!

This weekend, I wrapped up more than 40 shirts/legwarmer sets that will be heading out to our heart friends at Mott, as well as sets for heart kids in Texas, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Thank you for all of your support...without you, I could not do what I do!

On a side note, our sweet Avery starts Pre-Kindergarten tomorrow. It's amazing to think that just over two years ago, we didn't know if we'd ever see this day...and now she is happy and thriving.

Have a wonderful week!
