Smart PJs – Pajamas that Tell a Story


Kids grow up so fast. I’ve been astounded lately at just how quickly my little girl has become too grown up for all kinds of kid-stuff. We can’t watch Dora anymore, or Little Bear, she’s moved on, and even enjoys a little non-fiction entertainment now and again, and of course her beloved Cake Boss. What could get her interested in a good cuddle and a bedtime story?

Buzzy device makes injections less painful, especially for kids

buzzyI would like to take a quick poll here – how many of you out there actually have the fear of needles, and hate going to the doctor to get your shot? If you have answered in the affirmative, then you would be in good company with a number of children too, who happen to share the same fear as you.

It’s been quite a while since I toted my child around in a little papoose, but I do remember the days that I wandered about with her strapped to my chest, her little legs dangling. She didn’t seem to mind it, but I cant say she loved it either.

Until now.
