Living the Dream with LTDChix
I just love a company that really gets it. Especially one with a sense of humor, the kind that says, "Hey, we're right in there with you, and we're not taking ourselves too seriously, either."
That's what so appeals to me about LTDChix, a company created by two overwhelmed Moms who, in their words, are "Living the Dream," feeling overwhelmed and still finding a way to laugh about the crazy days and unexpected joys of Motherhood.
LTDChix sent me one of their fantastic Laundry tees to check out, and I wore it proudly. Made from 100% cotton, the LTDChix shirts, "feature a variety of tongue-in-cheek illustrations depicting the daily trials of today's Mom." In other words, they're all about you.
And they're right on the mark, too. The shirts feature Moms in just the kinds of everyday situations we all know and (sorta) love, like pushing a shopping cart while weaving through multiple kids racing chaotically around our legs, or finding ourselves buried in dirty laundry, or acknowledging that yes, okay, the house IS kinda messy, isn't it?
Cindi Schmitzer, a Mom of four and a former financial analyst for Playtex, and her partner Nina Frye, previously a Fortune 100 account exec and now a Mom of three, both from New Jersey, have a philosophical approach to motherhood that suits them well in their new business: "The LTDChix Mom has realized that, ‘hey – this motherhood gig isn’t quite what I thought I signed up for, but I’m here now and loving every minute of the craziness'," Schmitzer says. "These shirts are a fun way for us to laugh at ourselves and at the wacky situations we find ourselves in on a daily basis."
So, if you're Living the Dream like the rest of us Moms, LTDChix is perfect for you! I love the bright pink Laundry tee, like the one pictured here, that LTDChix sent out to me, and now you can have one, too!
