No TV for Baby Z

Until this week, it never struck me that Baby Z has never watched TV.

Why doesn't she watch TV?

Really, I don't know. Since we don't have cable television, I guess that's a root of the reason. But at the same time, she has so much fun exploring, playing, trying new things and getting into trouble, that we've never thought to turn on the TV for her

What do you think? Do toddlers benefit from watching TV?

Give Green!

One simple, fun thing to do when giving a gift is to opt for a reusable tote in place of a standard gift bag.

  1. They come in a wide variety of cute colors and patterns!
  2. They cost the same (or less!) than regular gift bags.
  3. They are more durable than regular gift bags.
  4. Your gift recipient can reuse the bag for grocery shopping, farmer's markets, giving another gift, library books, an overnight bag to grandmas, etc.

Check out Dollar Tree's selection. Each bag is $1 each:

Here are some other fun options:
$2.59 for two bags from Amazon.

$3.99 from World Market.
$7.99 for 2 bags from
Market bags, 4 for $17 at Direct From Mexico
