Have you ever slept on an AeroBed? Me neither, because when I have the opportunity as an overnight guest, my kids beg to sleep on it. In that spirit, my mom got an AeroBed for the kids for when they come to visit, and they practically giggle in anticipation of going to sleep. Today only, […]
Duane's hack reinforces my belief that a good book cures almost anything: My four year-old tends to complain of bad dreams although she can never articulate what happens in them.
