Wow Wow Wubzy Book Signing May 8th!

My son loves Wubzy! There is a song called the Wubzy Wiggle and when my toddler hears it, he starts running around in circles singing the song. I actually have a short video of him singing the song and running around and then he loses his balance and falls down. I know, I'm mean, but he got back up and he was ok.
On Saturday, May 8th at 10:30am the creator, Bob Boyle, will be at Vromans Bookstore in Pasadena (the one on Colorado). He will be signing his new book Hugo and the Really Really Really Long String.
We can't wait to get the book and talk to Bob! Hope to see you there!

preschool menus full of fat

I was at my child's preschool today and was talking to a fellow parent who is taking a tour of preschools just to see what is out there. He was amazed to find that nearly all of the preschools he visited offered lunch for children that was full of fattening and preservative-laden foods. Now, I am not against french fries (in fact, I love them) and I am not against pizza, but I control the amount of pizza and fries my child eats in order to make sure he gets some fruit and veggies (okay, one day he'll eat his veggies, I just know it) in between. It really is a dilemma because there is one school in particular we both really liked, but worried about the food. So, I pose the question...is the education as important as what they eat or is one more important that the other? Thoughts?
