Lifeables Review

I have a lot of pictures of my kids. But usually they are stuck on my phone. Languishing in photo hell (or photo heaven if you want to be more positive about it.) If I manage to get the pictures off my phone, they get stored on my computer…and there they remain in photo purgatory. […]

Planes by Byron Barton (Video Review)

If you have a child between two and six years old, who loves airplanes, boats and cars, you should check out an app called “Planes by Byron Barton.” It is an app for the iPhone, iTouch and iPad. Colors, sounds, music, reading, and recognition are just a few reasons why my son loves the app […]

Or maybe because many resolutions are way to lofty (and doomed for failure.) I also hate all of the weight loss pressures too.

Do I Need a Baby Monitor

This post was updated May 2018. I cannot believe that so much emphasis is put on this “must have” for today’s new parents. Our parents (and grandparents) did not have such a “trinket”. Then again, the technology did not exist during their time. I am fairly confident that if it did exist, they would have […]
