Baby's Bedtime Routine
It is no secret that a consistent routine can make for a more pleasant bedtime for the whole family. It is especially useful early on when you are trying to help your baby differentiate day and night. As a teacher of young children, I know from experience that children are typically creatures of habit and often thrive off cues and routines. Early on dressing the baby, bathing her - all that stuff - had my heart racing and me in a full on sweat, as she screamed at the top of h

In addition to the exciting football, I was thoroughly entertained by the halftime show. A lot of criticism fo
I'm so glad you're here!
