(Fashion blogger/model I am not. Liam on the other hand, he’s way too cool)
There’s something to be said about a good graphic tee, especially when you find two of the most appropriate graphic tees to describe toddler life and mama life. I had promised myself I wasn’t going to participate in Black Friday way back in November, but when I saw these shirts on sale from Jumping Jack, I couldn’t resist grabbing one for Liam and I. Our shirts are so soft and comfy, perfect for spending a day together running errands or hanging out at home.
There are so many shops out there featuring cool shirts for kiddos but I am choosy about the ones that I will actually order from. This shop had such a touching story, that there was no question I would support it.
This shop was created in honor of our son Jack. He was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy at just 6 weeks. SMA is the #1 genetic killer of infants and young children. SMA causes the degeneration of the motor neurons in the brain stem and spinal cord which with leads to muscle weakness. SMA caused Jack to struggle to swallow, cough, eat and breathe. He was never able to hold his head up, sit up or walk. We feel blessed to have started each day with his bright smile and created many memories of the precious moments we had with him. The very first headband I made was for Jack. It helped hold his oxygen and feeding tube in place. On December 23rd 2011, our sweet baby boy took his last breath in my arms surrounded by his family. He is the bravest boy I know. We will forever love you Jack Jack!
If that doesn’t bring a tear to your eye…
I definitely look forward to ordering from Jumping Jack again in the future. There’s a few other great shirts that I’d love to pick up for Liam, plus the Mama Days shirt is coming out in a new cranberry colour! I’m almost tempted…!
