    I don’t have any kids of my own, but the ideas you have shared on your blog have just been soooooooo helpful to me. I do alot of volunteer work for our local senior center and they love all of the cute things I have been able to re-create from the ideas you have shared. You are bringing great delight to those not only in their early years, but also to those in their later years also!!! Well done! Thanks for all of your creativity!
