The little things

little-things-kleenex-ultra-soft

This post brought to you by Huggies and Kleenex. All opinions are 100% mine. As I sit here listening to the kids playing (nicely) together, hearing my husband putter away upstairs on a project, it's striking me how powerful the little things are in life. The big things are, for sure, also important, but so often, ...

A few weeks ago, LeapFrog's new LeapPad3 tablet for kids arrived at our house for review.   We had the original LeapPad which we all enjoyed, and had actually shared with some friends of ours not long ago.  I was very intrigued by the release of the 3rd 'generation' of the LeapPad- toys from LeapFrog were ...

Cheesecake Factory’s #SayCheesecakeContest #NationalCheesecakeDay

national-cheesecake-day

My heart rate seems to have doubled, and my breathing becomes quick and shallow. There isn’t a mirror around, but I’m almost positive my pupils must be dilated much larger than normal.
