Ripple Safety Device

Disclaimer: I received product/service in exchange for this post about the Ripple safety device. All opinions are 100% my own.

When I first was told about the Ripple Safety Device, my mind went straight to where most of my focus has been lately – to running. I even blogged about it over on mrsgregwillis the other day with that exact focus. But in thinking more about it, Ripple isn’t just for keeping runners safe, it’s great for anyone who needs to feel safe and could be a great device to give your kids as you start letting them “have some wings”. keep reading

A Best Friends Collaboration: Hopster and Sesame Street

In exchange for my honest opinions, the Twins were gifted a subscription to Hopster, a preschool learning and entertainment app. All opinions are 100% our own, as always.

Admittedly, when I first downloaded Hopster onto our iPad, I did so without the kids around and definitely spent some time diving into the games, shows, and songs. It was for research purposes, but it was also oh so fun! I felt comfortable adding this app to our home screen, a place where the Twins know to go for fun learning activities.  keep reading
