What's the funniest onesie you've ever seen? Include a link if you can.

One of my favourite onesies is this one: http://www.loserkids.com/index/page/product/product_id/11646/name/Keep_A_Breast_I_Love_Boobies_Onesie_White/category_id/189 Its statement rings true to all breastfed babies, it's amusing and it created awareness of one of my favourite charities - Keep A Breast - that educates young people about breast cancer. Good for your baby and good for you! www.simplystylishmom.com

What tips can you offer for closet organization?

Anna Cohen

I divide my closet into two - Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer. All my tops and tanks are hung, then collared shirts, then cardigans, then skirts, dresses. I have all my jeans folded in piles and then my sweaters, cardigans and workout clothes in separate drawers. My shoes also are also divided into seasons and then into genres - flats, sneakers, wedges, pumps and boots. My purses are in one container and in a separate box I have all the clothes that I'm not wearing or considering giving away at my next clothes swap party (I have 2-4 a year). Downstairs my coats and jackets are also divided according to season. I could colour co-ordinate my closet but fear that maybe too anal of me...

What item should moms splurge on?

Anna Cohen

We live on a student income so splurges are few and far between but we allow for them sometimes so that we can all feel special and taken care of! For myself I think the infrequent splurge on a hair appointment, a pedicure or a facial is allowed. In terms of clothes I allow a splurge on a classic item like a leather purse or a pair of good quality ballet flats. For you and your partner, a dinner out, a night away or a special date. For your kids, events that create memories: Thomas Day Out, a holiday, a skiing lesson or a special toy as a prize for hard work. It's the infrequent splurges that are really special in life!

What's your dream gift for Mother's Day? (If it's a product or service that can be found on the web or on your blog, please include a link.)

Anna Cohen

My dream gift would be a simple gesture of love from my boys: a long, luscious sleep-in, cooked breakfast in bed with proper coffee, a sentimental, badly made gift from the kids and a more expensive, well-listened to gift from husband!! simplystylishmom.com

From Twister to "sardines in a can," we're always looking for indoor games that get our kids moving and burning off energy! Can you share a physical game your kids love that can be played inside?

Anna Cohen

My kids are big train buffs. So, one indoor game that is popular in our house is to make use of our hardwood floors and black tape and to make train tracks all around the house. The kids then spend hours pushing their trains - as well as cars, buses and taxis, around their own little Island of Sodor. We also did this at their birthday party and it was a huge hit. I also wrote a post on other indoor activities when New York City was affected by the hurricane.
