Be Ready For Play Everyday with PLAYSKOOL ~ Giveaway


I remember sweating. Sweating as I carried my daughter through the mall in her car seat because I didn’t dare disturb the baby who was actually happy in that seat. Though a toddler doesn’t seem heavy at first, once you add in a diaper bag, a purse, a winter coat a bottle and a small […]
