It’s been a month and a half since I’ve updated you on Ricky’s dad. Most of you know I stopped sharing regularly on here because I came under some scrutiny for sharing a story that’s not my own. But when it comes to something that affects our family in such a way as it has this summer, I believe this …

Baby Sign Language DVDs Discount!

I wanted to share this Baby Sign Language DVDs discount code with you that’s good through August 31, 2012.

American Girl McKenna DVD Birthday Party for Kariss!
