There are a lot of baby products on the market but nearly every new parent knows all about the Sophie la Girafe teething toy. It’s typically talked about either because new parents can’t believe how much it costs, or because it’s the only thing that makes someone’s baby happy. Whatever the reason, it’s such a hit in both Europe and the US that there’s actually more than just the famed teether in the collection!

Baby/ Home Page/ Pre-K/ Tot

When Savannah was a baby I’d sing her to sleep and read her books all day long. I was so good at making sure that we Read. Talk. Sing. (and do baby yoga), just like First 5 California recommends, every day when she was a newborn, a baby and even a toddler. But now that she’s 4, I’ve gotten so busy with work on the computer that she’s usually making messes around me while trying to occupy herself with creative activities until mommy can play tea party or make a blanket campsite. This isn’t something I’m proud to admit, but I know I’m not the only parent to realize that this is happening. That though they’re only little for so long and the first 5 years are most important for brain development, I’m simply not as involved as I used to be (or want to be) as a parent . . . which is exactly why I was excited to work on this simple list of ways to incorporate Read. Talk. Sing. into daily life. Read more
