It seems that lately there have been quite a few opportunities for me to get together with my bloggy-friends. The most recent was a pizza party sponsored by Leap Frog. We had a fabulous time. Lucas loved playing with all the toys at the KinderCare where we had the party and I got to (sort of) listen to a fascinating conversation about what kind of toys our kids should be playing with. How much "screen time" and how much technology is right for our kids at different ages? What kids of electronic toys do moms feel good about giving to their kids? These are the questions that the Leap Frog folks and their panel of experts posed to us mommy bloggers and they were eager to hear what we had to say. They fed us, they entertained our kids (toys, face painting, etc...), they gave us an outlet for "adult conversation" ... that would have been enough in itself. But to top it all off, they oh-so-generously gave us free toys to take home. A-Mazing!!! We got this cool phonics toy and some Tag Books for Lucas and even a couple sweet toys for Caden once he gets a little older. We scored, and we scored huge!! Thank you SO MUCH Leap Frog, for throwing a fabulous, albeit a bit chaotic, party and for so generously sharing your wonderful toys with us. I have put some aside for Christmas and gave Lucas some to play with now. And so far, he LOVES them. The more we play with them, the more I will have to say. But for now, thank you Leap Frog!! We had a blast!
