Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

Modern bonnet for a little girl by Midwest Family Life @ohbotherblog We got so many compliments on Holdy's new hat at the park today so I figured I'd share the info.

I love the urban baby bonnet from UB2 that I had seen at the Happy Babies Baby Boutique in Cape May and online but do not love the $36-$44 price tag so I did a little Etsy digging.

I found this adorable bonnet by Midwest Family on Etsy for $20. It's reversible like the UB2 and is pretty much the cutest thing ever.

It's perfect for keeping the sun off her head and face and looks adorable on her little noggin. And, bonus: she actually keeps it on. People were loving it at the park.

Also, look at my ingenuity for keeping Gatsby sun-safe, lol.

It's a gorgeous day. I'm heading back outside!
