Watch and learn with Wild Kratts and Caillou on PBS Kids

PBS Kids has been a trusted source of quality entertainment for decades, so I was excited when they asked me if I would like to review some of their latest releases!

Sometimes I don’t recognize myself, and that’s ok

"I don't even know who I am anymore!" It's a statement that I've been jokingly saying a lot lately and it really has me thinking. While I still certainly recognize the 'old' me, there are a lot of things that have changed about myself now, some that I wanted to happen and many that I never would have anticipated!
