My recommendations this week:
We’ve had one of these cloth calendars hanging on our wall for so many years it’s become nostalgic to me. I’m pretty sure I’ll cry when we take it down–and now that the kids are getting older that time will be soon!
I bought a dear friend a few of these BabyLit books as a baby shower gift and they are gorgeous. Impossible to look at without smiling–perfect for Mama & Baby!
(And no, these aren’t necessary to “teach” baby, but just because mamas should have fun looking at her baby’s first books, too!)
Featured sponsors this week:
Back when I was trying to get my kids into audio books, I stumbled upon Sparkle Stories instead. It was the perfect fit!
We received new imaginative audio stories every week from multiple storylines, including our favorite about a homeschooling family, Martin & Sylvia.
