I know some people are all about " no screen time" during the week. Well, we use it in moderation and to be honest, I think each child is different and just because it might work with one, doesn't mean it will work with the others.  For us, we watch one show before bedtime. The show that Broxton is requesting right now?  Odd Squad.  I had never heard of it, but once we started watching it nightly, I think it is a great choice.  An added bonus?  It is all about MATH and that is his strong subject!  He loves it and is really good at it.  I love hearing him answer the questions as he watches the show!!!!  They have a new DVD being released on March 15th!!!  Grab it now and let the …

I have no shame in admitting that one of my favorite shows Broxton watched when he was younger was Word World.  I think the creativity is amazing that they made the words into illustration.  The cartoon is cute and it is teaching reading and spelling at the same time.  Education plus fun is winning in my book!!!   We had a few Word World toys (and coloring books) when he was younger, but no DVD's. I am THRILLED that we are adding the Word World DVD's to our DVD library now for Savannah! Yes, she will be getting this for Easter!!!

Do you give gifts at Easter?  I remember the Easter Bunny coming to see me as a child.  It was fun to see my basket filled with candy and usually a stuffed animal of some sort.  My cousins always had what seemed to me to be a second Christmas.  It was insane the different gifts that they got.  I am not sure if it was all Easter Bunny, or if their parents gave them some gifts too, but either way, it was a lot of presents.  Broxton normally gets a little basket from the Easter Bunny, but nothing major. Since his birthday is in February (and Valentines is as well) he doesn't get an overload of candy.
I thought I would share a few DVD options if you are looking for suggestions for the Easte…
