The Hundred Acre Wood is calling — both you and your little one. The Winnie the Pooh Wonder and Wander App (which is free to download and was recently updated) is playful fun for those grabby little hands that can’t seem to stay away from your iPhone or iPad. While you can interact with the setting — making the sun rise and set, ruffling the leaves, etc. — I think the games are what budding toddlers will love most.

My daughter Fern and I spent that past few days at Disney World in Florida with my parents and we had such an amazing time! It was the first time any of us had been to Disney World, so we all had our favorites, but here were a few things that my little one liked most about our trip.

Cell phone snapshots. Probably the most accurate way I can look back and reflect on my day. Even when I can’t remember what we did last Tuesday, all I have to do is simply scroll through the good ole’ phone photos and I’m instantly reminded. Oh yes, we went to the library, ran errands, and then headed out to dinner.
Since baby Paul and I are buddies while the big kids are in school, he’s become my little muse of sorts. And everyday I’m capturing sweet, simple, magical moments in his little toddler life. I watch him explore, I see him create, and put my clicker finger directly on the everyday moments of life that all too often pass us by in a blink of an eye.

My toddler has recently become obsessed with bears – she calls herself a bear, she likes to growl, and she frequently tells me that bears are her favorite animal.
