Posts Tagged ‘a christmas story’

There’s not a parent in Maine that’s not familiar with the daily winter routine. Every morning, without fail, we’re ushering our children into warm socks, boots, mittens, scarves, snow pants, coats, and hats. Sometimes the routine goes smoothly, and sometimes well, not so much. And who could blame the kids for not wanting to get in full cold weather regalia? No child wants to feel like—what’s hilariously described in A Christmas Story—as a tick that’s about to go pop, right?

That’s why MP turns to great local Etsy shops like BabbidgePatch Hats. Shop owner Cathy Costa made CP#2 a Star Wars hat last season, and he looks forward to wearing it each day. Cathy makes beautiful knit hats adults and kids want to wear.

If your family happens to be in Kennebunkport, and you find yourselves exploring Dock Square, we recommend going directly to Daytrip Jr. The inviting shop is a Cute Potato favorite. When MP visits, she can’t help but think of A Christmas Story, when Ralphie and friends have their noses pressed against the glass at Higbee’s Department Store window, gaping in awe at its marvelous contents.
