Printable Race Car Valentines

I remember wondering (pre-parenthood) why Elmo became the muppet of choice amongst toddlers and pre-schoolers. He’s annoying and talks in baby talk, I thought, is that really what kids like?

Fitness goals
I’ve been in the fitness business as long as I can remember; but if I tell you an exact number, everyone will start doing the math and figuring my age. Then I may as well just tell you how much I weigh, too. So let’s just say, for the sake of a well kept secret… […]

**This post is sponsored by Primrose Schools.** The first three years of childhood are consumed with exploration and experimentation. In fact, Jean Piaget, one of the most influential developmental psychologists of the 20th century, described young children as “natural scientists,” referring to how toddlers examine their surroundings to understand the world around them.

It is officially 2018, and for the last month I have enjoyed suffered through seeing the “New Year, New Me”, “Leave that in 2017” memes and posts flow up and down my timelines. As I was reflecting on 2017, I was trying to figure out “who” I wanted to be in 2018, and I realized, […]
