Sophie la girafe has been a constant presence in our home for the last 2.5 years. Rowan received her as a present when she was born from her uncle and she was smitten from a very young age (please forgive the crazy outfit, it was a cool morning at the cottage). She still brings her Sophie out the odd time and loves nothing more than seeing little babies with their own Sophie.
DK Publishing has recently released a series of books starring Sophie la girafe and I was more than happy to review Read more [...]
Summer is winding down now, with the cooler air and rain of fall rolling in. No more hanging my laundry out on the line if I want it to dry in a timely manner.

I've been Read more [...]

While Mike is training to be a knight, his younger sister Evie wishes to become a wizard. Accompanied by her pet frog Mr. Cuddles, Evie uses spells to help Mike with his missions, but a series of magical Read more [...]
Most kids go through a "why?" stage. Not mine. Ask anyone who spends more than 5 minutes with my girls and they'll tell you that their question of choice is always "what are we doing, Mommy?" - today, tomorrow, after breakfast, after lunch, over and over and over. Ashlyn started asking that when she was about 2 and she never stopped; as a special bonus she's taught it to her little sister so now it's a never-ending chorus.
With back-to-school in full swing, I was thrilled to review the Boho Read more [...]
