    Ever since Rissa was a baby it has been impossible to keep socks on her for very long.  She used to kick them off, now she yanks them off as soon as her shoes are off.

    But it’s not her socks that caught my attention the other day.

Behold: Borrow Mini Couture. It's basically Rent the Runway for toddlers! Now you have no excuse whatsoever for not dressing your little drooler in the fly-est designer duds.

    Before you spend your holiday weekend doing a little late-fall cleaning in your little one's room, make sure you're aware of this super-important news concerning two popular toddler and children's clothing items that have recently been recalled.

    8 Ways I'm 'Ruining' My Child's Life

    I consider myself an okay mom. What I lack in attention to detail, I make up for with lots of patience. My two-and-a-half-year-old isn't potty trained yet, but she speaks in complete sentences. We read lots of books together, take walks to the park, chat over dinner, and I'd say overall my daughter appears to be happy enough with my mommy performance thus far. 

    But there's at least one person in this world who is convinced I've got this motherhood thing all wrong: my dear, amazing but judgmental, 92-year-old grandmother. Here are the top 8 ways I'm "ruining" my child -- and possibly my unborn child as well -- according to granny.

    When I heard about this Naughty Leopard Costume for toddlers, I thought for sure I was going to see a skin-tight leopard body suit with some chicken cutlets sewn in where the boobs should be. Something very "naughty" or risque and totally inappropriate for a little girl to wear on Halloween. Instead I saw this cute little girl (featured) in what looked more like a goth princess costume, and if it wasn't for the ears, I wouldn't have identified her as a little girl dressed up as a leopard of the naughty (or any other) variety.

    The packaging the costume comes in reads "Naughty Leopard" and I sure don't want my daughter to be a "naughty leopard" (said with that stress you put on naughty when describing something sexual). But the costume isn't "slutty" or suggestive and I think people are getting really riled up over a word.

    Okay parents, tell me if this sounds familiar. 1. Your child does not want to wear pants. 2. Your child hates clothing tags because obviously tags just tear up your skin and cause permanent nerve damage and scarring. 3. Wrestling your child into their pants feels remarkably like wrestling with a full-grown adult. Yes, it's time for another episode of the hit YouTube series Convos With My 2-Year-Old, in which the role of 2-year-old Coco is played by a grown man. 

    This time we get to watch the dad try to get a pair of pants on "Coco." Why is this such a monumental task? Oh, I think we know why.

    Have you ever met a parent who is always looking to blame someone when anything happens to their child? Well, I haven't met Shahan Stephanian, but my guess is he may be one of those.

    According to the Los Angeles Times, the man from Pasadena, Calif., recently filed a lawsuit against Nordstrom. He says an employee at the store who was fitting his 4-year-old daughter for boots, put her in some that too big for her. Apparently she measured at about a size 11-12, but the employee had her try a 13 so there would be room to grow (something I actually appreciate as a parent). When the employee told her to walk toward a shelf to see how they felt, she tripped and hit her head.

    When you have just one kid, it is hard to resist buying them everything. Trust me, been there, have the dent in the wallet to show for it. But someone needs to tell Beyonce and Jay-Z there's a line in the sand you just do not cross. Kitten heels for toddlers? Those are on the WRONG side of that line.

    Yes, it seems 17-month-old Blue Ivy has herself a pair of itty bitty kitten heels. And not just any kitten heels. Kitten heels from Tom Ford, of course, because she is the princess, and we all must bow down (insert eye-roll here). 

    Need I remind you that Beyonce's daughter is just a toddler?

    The countdown is on until the Fourth of July. Along with all the fireworks, BBQ food, and other festivities is a great opportunity to let your kids wear their patriotism with pride ... literally. One of the best ways to do that with little girls is hair bows -- lots of bows.

    Adding a sweet little pop of red, white, and blue in their hair gives them some pizzazz. If you're not into buying an entirely themed outfit, an inexpensive bow can transform any solid red, white, or blue getup into a festive ensemble. And really, there's pretty much nothing cuter than little girls in bows. Bonus: You can use them for Labor Day too, which will be here all too soon.

    Which of these bows is your favorite? Do you dress your kids for the holidays?

    As a mom who spent a period of 6 months desperately trying (in vain) to convince my then 2-year-old daughter to wear something, anything, besides a particular flowered dress with little bows on the shoulders ("The Bow Dress," we called it), I find the concept of kiddie couture pretty much ridiculously funny. I'm not sure when it happened, exactly, but at some point over the past 10 years or so, "fashionista toddlers" turned into ... a thing. Why? I'm pretty sure Suri Cruise and the Jolie-Pitts helped to inspire the trend -- not to mention a slew of other celeb kids roaming the playgrounds in couture -- and Pinterest has only added to the haute hysteria. Except maybe not anymore, thanks to "My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter," a deliciously ironic collection of hipster tot photos devoted to a fantasy child named "Quinoa" with devastatingly witty captions.
