Wisharoo Park 2DVD Set & Finger Puppets Review & #Giveaway ~ Closed

With all the options in shows and games, it’s hard to tell what’s appropriate for kids.  Some stuff seems okay on the surface, but offers little more than mindless entertainment.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy mindless entertainment for...

Lullabelly ~ #Pregnancy Music Belt Review

Bonding with baby starts well before baby is born.  I started bonding with Rissa once I could feel her move around.  It felt more real at that point.  As my pregnancy progressed, I talked out loud to her and...
