Flashing with style

One of the biggest challenges of raising a preschooler is to get their focus and attention for at least five minutes.  Well, that´s the case in my house.  I mean, we´re finally getting to the stage where storytime doesn´t mean ripping and biting books!  That´s why I felt we passed a milestone yesterday when my girl and I peacefully sat down to name the colorful objects in Eeboo´s Spanish Flash Cards.  What I thought was going to turn into aRead More ...
