The Power of the Hoodie

It is that special kind of grey, just before the sunrise and prior to a rain shower.  You love it when the sky is like that — filled with mist and hope and so many possibilities.  You have about half and hour before the rain will start, just enough time to get in a quick run.  So you slap on your shorts, pull on your sweatshirt and peep into your boy’s room.  He waves at you from his bed signaling that he’s ready to come along.

Out comes the jogging stroller, and you with gym shoes on and adrenaline pumping.  Baby’s arms reach up, eager to hug you and give you the unspoken pep talk.  You can do it!  Yes, you can! You grab your teeny trainer’s heathered button hoodie by Album di Famiglia which is as perfect for a morning like this as it is for the brunch you are going to have later this morning.  Balthazar for brunch?  Yes, please!

This hoodie puts other hoodies to shame.  Made with 100% cotton, it has a softness that cannot be denied. The silhouette says modern and stylish while its playfulness is perfect for kids.  The silver buttons are the crowning touch on this luxurious item.

So you bundle your little guy in his warm baby clothes, buckle him in his stoller, stretch out the last of the morning kinks, take a deep breath and go.  It feels so good to run but nothing feels as good as the hug waiting for you from your little cheering section at the end of the run.

Run, mama, run!
