Little Dude’s Favourite Books

My So-Called Mommy Life Little Dude reading

For a while I was posting some of Princess Peach’s favourite toys/items that she enjoys playing with. I realized that in the almost 19 months that Little Dude has been here I haven’t shared any of his picks. The funny thing is that he doesn’t have very many favourite things that aren’t his sisters.

The alphabet is so much fun to teach because letters are all around us from the “S” in a stop sign to finding letters on a Cheerios box the options are endless.  With alphabet books you can teach your children to identify their letters both [...]

‘Cause everything is RENT
