Jim: This is a great article in the Wall Street Journal about the newest color hitting all the runways: Magenta. Even in New York, a city that perfected head-to-toe black, we are seeing more bold, vibrant colors. The "Fuchsia Phenomenon" is anything but bleak, and who couldn't use a little uplifting during these tough times?
Tracy: My 2 year old does not sit still long enough to watch the full show, but she LOVES the "sunny day" song that starts Sesame Street. This video is great! A way for all ages to enjoy something we all love(d) as kids!
Ashley: I am always looking for different ways to keep my family on track. I found this wonderful idea on how to use a dry erase board as a parenting tool on the Blissful Kids blog. I know my children will love using their boards to write notes to the family, work out math problems, or practice their handwriting. The list of possibilities goes on and on.
Kara: My nieces and nephews love drawing on the driveway with chalk during the summer. I thought of them when I received a newsletter from Crayola highlighting their Outdoor Chalk Products. How cool is the Sidewalk Paint Sprayer? Chalk has come a long way since I was a kid!
Carol Marie: As a new mom, I’m trying not to spoil my child by buying too many clothes, toys, etc. But I can’t help myself. I found this website, Baby Plays by accident when searching blogs about babies and toddlers...just to find out what other parents are thinking! The most recent blog entry was about a toy rental program. I went to the BabyPlays site and thought it was a convenient, fun and eco-friendly idea. It’s like Netflix for toys!
