Anchor Mom: “A Crib is like a Bike”

Before putting J to bed the other night, he announced, “A crib is like a bike.”  He’s two, he says crazy things – so we just nodded our heads and moved on with the night.  That is, until we checked on him to find him straddling the side of the crib (like a bike) peddling his feet. It … Continue reading »
