I must say, it feels good to be the Best Mom Ever, and I’ve been using this award a few times since the birthday party, as a reminder when things weren’t going that great.

Best thing about it? The birthday party was at our house. Read how I pulled it off and how you can enter to win an awesome bounce house for your little one's party.

Baby Jack Learning Lovey

Does or did your kids have a Lovey? Both of our girls did. In fact, they still have theirs. They sleep in their beds, together with 15 stuffed animals and barbies, little rocks, beads, pieces of paper, acorns (?!?!?), coins, an occasional goldfish, and other things you wouldn’t believe.

Anyway, friends of ours recently welcomed their precious little baby boy into the world and we got him an awesome Baby Jack Learning Lovey. The lovey is a super soft little sensory tag blanket, perfect for cuddling, playing, chewing, and rubbing the ribbons, which are sewn closed to prevent little fingers from getting intertwined in ribbon loops. Read more about the lovey, the good cause that comes with it, and how you can enter to win one of four Baby Jack Learning Loveys.
