As I write this, over 128 people have died in Alabama, 11 in Georgia and 1 in Tennessee. We spent a nervous evening listening to the storm outside our windows, cracked open to prevent them from bursting under the pressure of a possible tornado. We're still under a watch until noon today. Currently I am in the dark about my fellow North Carolinians as the phone company cut our cable line while burying a new line.
For all of our survival skills learned while hiking in the backcountry, Richard and I realized that we are not really prepared in the event of a tornado. We have no basement or proper storm shelter. As we cleared a space in our pantry under the stairs, it became quite obvious that something needs to be done. As a storage area for canned goods, this space also holds glass vases, crystal platters, an odd assortment of tools, cords, batteries, boxes of stuff I have no idea why I'm keeping, brooms, vacuums, boxes of nails....
Also, there really is no secure place to hang on in case a tornado were to suck us all up.
We wearily fell into our beds last night not knowing if the massive storm to the west and the south would find us. I was able to sleep trusting in the text alerts that would be coming to my phone from the local news station.
This morning I have a lot of work to do... creating a safe space.
Is it possible to ever be truly safe anymore?
Introducing the first in a brand new line of Earth Friendly Knees and Paws. Made with 100% cotton, this set has the following great features:
Machine washable! These are the first Knees and Paws to be truly safe for the washing machine and for the dryer.
Ideal at bath time. Paws help little ones manage those slippery bars of soap. Great for making lots of suds and learning to bathe independently.
Cotton, as a renewable, sustainable natural fiber has the added benefit of keeping the skin cool during play. Paws and knee pads will absorb sweat while allowing the skin to breathe.
On hot days, these can be placed in the freezer and used as an instant refresher. Perfect for soothing temper tantrums and meltdowns! Keep your cool just like a Polar Bear.
As always, Knees and Paws are for Kids who love to crawl around playing animals. They protect tender skin from scrapes, rug burn and scratches while crawling on hard surfaces.
Knees and Paws have also been used for dramatic performances. If you are putting on a show, please convo and I will be happy to create a special order.
Each set of knee pads are custom fitted for every child. It is important to covo with a circumference measurement of the child's leg three inches above and below the knee for a perfect, non-slip fit.
