Are you need some great gift ideas for your baby this Christmas? As you know babies don’t need very many toys, especially during the first four months. Once your baby turns 4 months old, he or she will need to begin spending time on their tummy to help develop their motor skills and strengthen their core muscles. Even if your child isn’t quite ready to play with the toys, babies are always interested in looking around and exploring objects around them. Playtime is also a great way…Continue

Today I took my son to visit the local library for the very first time. I wasn’t sure what to expect because the library close to our house is fairly small. When we went into the library, I was amazed by the amount of books and activities that our local library has to offer the children. Every week our library has a scheduled…Continue

My oldest child is seven. He currently reads on a third grade level, but his lack of interest or motivation affects his ability to understand what he reads sometimes. Maybe I push him too hard....strong maybe! He absolutely loves playing games on the computer which works out fine for me, because we have two computers in the office. So, while I'm doing work or blogging, he is on his dad's computer right across from…Continue

I had a coupon and the "birthday bucks" from ToysRUs, so instead of letting it go to waste as I sometimes do, I decided to make a quick detour to ToysRUs yesterday. I was kids free for a couple of hours, so there was no one there to tug on my clothes and whine that they're tired of hungry or "want to go hommmmmmmeeeeee". My "quick stop" ended up being more like 45 minutes.…

In this brightly illustrated book Sadie and her Mom go to the park, and of course Sadie has plenty of questions about the world around them.
This is a lovely story, which is long enough to capture a child’s attention and gives plenty of opportunities for the reader and child to interact,…Continue

If your kids aren't headed off to summer camp this year, you might be stumped as to what to possibly do to keep them entertained and keep you sane. And unfortunately where I live, fun, cultural and educational activities are rare jewels, so we typically have to venture off at least an hour to enjoy ourselves. But don't be discouraged if you live in Small Town, NC like me; North Carolina is chock full of other destinations that are well worth the travel time. I've…Continue

Every day, our kids are bombarded with commercials for toys they must have! Most of these toys will probably hold their attention for about five minutes and end up at the back of their closet. I try to never fall prey to these crazes (well, I did with the zu zu pets but only because I thought it would be a…
