Teach Your Children to Excel with the Power of Music

You can use the power of music to help a child with so many different things, including both educational and social growth. Music can help children develop hobbies and become a better-rounded individual. When words are difficult to comprehend or emotions are simply running too high, music is something that can soothe the soul and nurture common ground. As a parent, helping your child harness this creative energy and use it to build self-confidence is one of the most important things you can do.

VTech Video Monitor: Safe&Sound Pan & Tilt Full Color Baby Monitor

You guys. I don’t have any babies in this house anymore (sob sob), but I might as well with Rebecca’s sleeping habits. Our oldest, Ryan, was so easy that I feel like we’re basically starting over with Rebecca! He went into a big boy bed before age 2 and never got out when he wasn’t supposed to.

Rebecca is 2. She’s still in her crib, which she can climb out of, and she does at every opportunity—meaning, the instant we leave her bedroom. When she turns 3 soon, we are moving her into a

Find the latest cameras and camcorders at Best Buy

Years ago I had an old camera that got the job done, but I’d been eyeing an upgrade to a DSLR for quite some time. I finally made the leap when my best friend was getting married. I really wanted to take some nice photos at the wedding! Plus, I was pregnant with our first and knew the new camera would be an investment in beautiful baby and family photos. I actually walked into Best Buy the morning of my friend’s wedding and said, “That one. The Nikon. I want it.” They said, “you

Christmas Giving Tradition: special delivery with Santa Sacks! (giveaway)

The holiday season is filled with so much gift giving, it’s a great time to teach your kids about giving back. As your children outgrow their toys, what do you do with them? There may be local organizations that give to kids in need or “adopt a family” programs around the holiday season. I have a fun new tradition that helps you clean out the toy room to give to kids in need while teaching your kids about the act of giving.

Everyone knows Santa carries a big sack of toys on his
