Our Story

Created by a Mom. For Parents. For kids. For families.

 My son Nathan had a really hard time preparing for kindergarten.  He did not want to leave me or the comfort of his normal routine. I wasn’t ready for him to be growing up either *sigh*.  It was really hard for me to see him so anxious and I wished I could go with him or just not send him at all.  As the days drew closer, his anxiety was gaining momentum  (and so was mine).  

I knew he couldn't take his blanket, his stuffed animal, or me.  I suggested that he take something of mine that he could carry in his pocket but the thought of losing it also got him worried...       Then a light came on... I hurried around the house and created a very small and very effective solution for him.  A mini “mommy”, that attached to his belt loop and hid in his pocket.  That way he couldn’t lose it and it wouldn’t cause a distraction in school. His reaction when I showed it to him was incredible. There was such a look of relief in his eyes. I couldn’t believe it!  That simple little thing and the thought of me with him, helped him so much! It was calming to me as well knowing it brought him such a level of comfort. He asked to wear it every day of Kindergarten.  Then through first grade. It also helped him with the transition to a new school.  Nathan is in 5th grade now and he has since grown out of his Pocket Mommy.  I now hand paint and personalize these little loved ones for other kids and families all over the world.  I hope My Pocket People bring you and your family as much comfort as they do for us.  

Thank you for your support and for being a part of our journey.

With love,

Debbie Lynn
