Wow. As of this exact moment the boys and girls are evenly split, with 12 each and 40% of the results each! I voted as not knowing until baby gets here!

I *think* this could be a girl based on how...

I'm attempting to declutter and minimalize at the moment. I'm very far from a minimalist lifestyle, but would like to head that direction. We have paper clutter everywhere. As far as throwing it out,...

Yeah. Little Pim is definitely not a curriculum, more just an exposure for younger children. I was thinking that maybe just having his own special "program" would interest my youngest in picking up...

I really like what I see from PetraLingua. It seems really affordable. I think it would be a great option to get us started - looks like it's geared towards younger ages, so I *think* it would work...
