Random Stuff That Rocks: Welcome Home, Baby!

PortaPlay Activity Center 

We love PortaPlay Activity Center because it doesn’t have to go into storage or end up in a yard sale after a few months of use. This activity center lasts for years because it changes as the baby grows! The simple baby toys are replaced with a set of stimulating toys for a growing brain, and later the activity center converts into an activity table. The suggested age range is 5 months through 5 years.

Before that she lived in Massachusetts and Maryland. She guesses they have a thing for “M” states. She is a writer, an editor, a teacher and the type of mom that never sits still.
