Shell Education {Workbooks for Kids} Review


Workbooks are something I have always loved. As a child I loved them and remember being so excited to work on the different pages.

Energizer Introduces Safe New Child-Resistant Packaging

New Coin Cell Packaging 2 pack wide card

When my boys were little they put things in their mouth all the time and I admit to calling Poison Control probably more than I should have.

Original Dish Drying Mat Review

Okay so yes we have a dishwasher, but I admit I tend to wash more dishes than I do load them into the dishwasher. I just tend to wash the dishes because so many are either caked on with food, not-dishwasher safe or they are sippy cups that I don’t have too many of. My […]
