—Now MomSpit on the other hand, I like. I hate, hate, HATED when my mom spit on her finger to wash off my face, but I find myself doing it to O all the time. My only improvement: Maybe they should make one that clips to a keychain, b/c the reason we moms use spit is b/c it’s so convenient. Hands and saliva are always gonna be there. When we are out, I carry my keys almost always, while I might stow a purse away.
—Cranium’s new line of games, books, puzzles, and toys just for preschoolers: Bloom. Maybe I’m a little more excited than most about this because my good friend Shanon was instrumental in creating Bloom. But it actually does sound pretty cool. Bloom uses the “everyday world as inspiration and Create, Discover, Perform, and Connect activities as a framework” to help little ones learn and play. I’m going to try to get some for WMAG to review soon.
