Expo for Kids: Roger Brabant’s Imaginary Hen House 

Since his early childhood, Roger Brabant has been fascinated by the temperament of roosters, the proud and prestigious leaders of the farm. As an adult, he began tinkering with recycled old barn wood to create roosters. With time, he perfected his method and began choosing different repurposed materials: planks, wrought iron nails, old sheet metal, knobs, woodendowels, pipes, etc. Each rooster is inspired by a word, a personality, or a daily event. Come meet the protégés from his henhouse, each one as unique as the next!

I was so lucky to attend the advance screening of the Incredibles 2 last night in 3D. I was so excited to see this movie… and it did not disappoint!!!  We have been waiting a long time for this super hero family to return to the big screen. Disney Pixar- did such an amazing job.

This film surrounds Elastigirl and her career as superhero. As a working mom and entrepreneur, I could relate to so much of this film. The MomGuilt is Real! Her need to succeed in the work place for her family is something any mom or dad can relate to. We laughed and laughed throughout this whole movie. I think Jack Jack steals the show…. he is our fave. It picks up right where the last one left off.  So many great things to walk away from this movie. The need for family and working as a team. Everyone has a place and working together will always prevail.

Grab the family and head out this weekend to see this amazing movie by #Disney #Pixar. A Family Favourite!! <3

It comes to theatres Friday June 15th! I almost want to go see it again… and again… and again….  🙂

Check out the full trailer here. You don’t want to miss out on this great family Classic!

 

 

 

 

Did you know AIDENASTON officially launched its company May 10th, 2018. Even before they launched officially they had the 3-layer thick organic blankets sell out, having to hold off the official launch date until they had them back in stock.

They aim to release new collections as often as they can to stay on top of the trend and to continue to provide the mini trendsetters with adorable organic children’s clothing made with love.

The next collection will be an interpretation on Polka dots, it is called all about Dots. Follow them and stay tuned!

 

We have a special offer for West island mommies readers and followers from AidenAston.

25% off everything online, no exceptions on www.aidenaston.com. Use this promo code WIM25 at the checkout. This offer is good only until 16th of June, 2018.

 

Meet AIDENASTON, an organic children’s online clothing and accessories store founded right here in Montreal.

All our clothing is made with premium thick organic cotton or organic bamboo cotton mix. 

We bring trendy but super affordable organic clothing without compromising on quality.

The founder and designer Kelly Baik saw a real void in the market for choices when it came to organic clothing for children. With the birth of her second son, she searched for an affordable organic clothing to put him in but was only met with crazy high prices and not so esthetically pleasing outfits. So, started the journey of creating AIDENASTON, an affordable, super cute, high in quality, functional organic children’s clothing line.

Come check us out on our website www.aidenaston.com
