Read Aloud with The BFG


Our newest adventure in #readaloudrevival is Roald Dahl’s The BFG in which the Giants drink an amazing beverage called Frobscottle.  I challenged each of the kids to design their own magical elixir! The results were varied, but everyone stated that their concoction was “rare!” Some were tasty, some not, and three of them had the magical ability to fill you up for the whole day; wouldn’t that come in handy! My focus with the older kids this year is GRAMMAR, so they each wrote a paragraph about their imaginary beverage. This challenged a couple of them to think outside their usual “box,” and drew out the sillies from the others who love to get creative in their writing! I love watching their vocabulary improving daily as well as their use of interesting sentence structure!

Rainbows for Days at


Our PAXexclusive Rainbows for Days woven wrap was inspired by the amazing scientific phenomenon of the double rainbow. As with all double rainbows the first arcis vivid with stark contrast between the colors while the second is typically less vibrant with blended colors. Similarly, Rainbows for Days, hand woven by West of the Fourth JUST for, features two rainbows, one with clean color changes and one that is a blend of color.

Created in Canada, Rainbows for Days is a handwoven wrap, using a ring spun American cotton warp and West of the 4th Weaving‘s signature super soft flax and tencel weft yarn. Nancy weaves these wonderful wraps on her loom by hand; she often weaves with her baby, Thryn, on her back and her husband, Corwyn at her side. This beautiful exclusive wrap is a cumulation of years of friendship between West of the 4th and, and it is our pleasure to welcome these wraps to our beautiful rainbow line up!

With great excitement, PAXbaby & West of the 4th Weaving would like to announce our limited stocking of our beautiful PAXexclusive Rainbows for Days; come back to shop on Tuesday September 13th at 1 PM PDT HERE!

Well, it is that time of year again! With the start of September comes…BACK TO SCHOOL!!!!
This year, all three PAXmoms are homeschooling!
For those of you that are homeschool vets, we would LOVE to see how YOUR school runs! Where do your kids do their learning?
Which curriculum do you follow? Do you un-school? Co-op? How do you wrangle and entertain your babies and toddlers while your older ones are schooling?
Email us at, and share your pics and ideas with us!

Those of you who are just getting started, we thought that we would share more of our own PAXmom-homeschool stories, and photos with you this year! We will let you all know what WE are up to throughout the year, you know, besides bringing you all amazing babywearing rainbows and such. ;)


We hope you all have an awesome back-to-school!!!

Read Aloud Revival



I’m a huge bookworm, but I don’t have much time for pleasure reading. What I do make sure to have time for is to read aloud to my littles.  A favorite activity in my house is to all snuggle in my bed – queen size! – and listen to mama read aloud. Picture books, chapter books, bring on the books, we read them all! Because of this family habit, it is my belief that my children will grow up to love books as much as I do, and that makes me very happy.As the new school year approaches, we’ve been discussing the addition of a few new To Do’s for the older kids to keeep life spinning smoothly during our school day. One of Lucy’s new chores will be the wonderful task of setting up our mantle in a delightful library style; I chose a few topics for September and compiled a book list for each one. The books we don’t have will be fetched from the library, or ordered from amazon thanks to school funding! I’ve also asked her to augment the arrangement with props and decorations!
