If you’re like me who have active boys who want nothing to do with making their beds up in the morning. That takes way too much time out of the playful things they have to do each day! So not only did my son *love* the Jay Franco & Sons Zippysack, but I was pretty happy with it as well. Let me tell you why.

They were SO AWFUL. We tried to feed them to the dog and the dog wouldn’t even eat them. And we had […]
Recently, I was pleased to have a chance to review the Motorola MBP 41 Video Baby Monitor! I used it with my 2 year old son. I haven’t actually used a monitor that often for him since he was a really tiny baby, but I knew we had a trip coming up where we would […]
Isn’t it amazing how dependent that we have become on cell phones these days? I admit it, I’m an addict. We don’t even own a home phone any longer. Do you? And, not only is my cellular phone my only phone, but the customer service on most cell phone plans is absolutely horrendous! I don’t […]
