New beginnings; Counting by 7s, chapter 16-31

Hello one and all, I hope your past week has treated you kindly and you're ready to discuss this week's chapters! As you can tell from the photo (Left to right: Noodle and Daisy, the other fur child Morely was sunbathing) I needed all the support I could get to make it through these chapters. It was just so difficult emotionally to read and experience what had just happened to this young girl. While unfolding the story after Jimmy and Roberta's death I truly appreciate that the author doesn't just stick with first person point of view, nor does she...

An interesting development; Counting by 7s, chapters 1-15

Hello beautiful people! If you're here reading this then that means the first blog post was enough to keep you interested, that's great! I do apologize for my not-so-timely posting this week, life got a head of me but what matters is that we're here now so let's get into it. Oooooooooh my goodness, these chapters took me by storm! I certainly was not expecting this sort of writing nor story from this book but I couldn't put the book down. I wanted to read right through the whole thing, but you know adult responsibilities and what not. I couldn't...

Beginning of our book club! Week 1, 'Counting by 7s' by Holly Goldberg Sloan

Hello, and happy new year to all of you! A quick introduction; my name is Maggie, I am Deb's daughter (Dave's stepdaughter), and I cover all of the social media stuff for the store (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc). Right before the new year I was thinking of things I'd like to try in 2017 and I remembered the books my mother sent me for Christmas. At first my brain started going the whole "Oh, I really should read more. I barely have the time to but I should make time" kind of route and then suddenly a great idea popped...

1 Case, 2 Case, 3 Case more!

1 Case, 2 Case, 3 Case more!

What a busy few months. Dave and I attended our first ASTRA Toy Fair and I had no idea buying toys would be so exhausting. Well, the cases of new toys, games, and so much more are starting to arrive at our store. I have so many great products to share with our wonderful customers.  First is Cloud b. This entire product line is committed to a child's positive sleep. Which intrigued me because this is when the baby/child's brain develops. So much takes place in their little noggins when they sleep. Yet, was hooked as soon as I touched the...

Doctor’s Orders: Kids Need to Play

Doctor’s Orders: Kids Need to Play

Parents know it. Teachers know it. And now pediatricians have weighed in with an official opinion about it. What’s the big consensus? Kids need regular doses of constructive play for healthy development, says the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and play is an important factor in building strong parent-child bonds.  In a clinical report published in the January 2007 issue of the journal Pediatrics, Kenneth R. Ginsburg, MD, MSEd makes the case on behalf of the country’s leading association for pediatricians. “Free and unstructured play is healthy—in fact, essential—for helping children reach important social, emotional, and cognitive developmental milestones as well as helping them manage stress...
