The first night, I blew his little mind.
Child’s Astronaut Writst Watch
I paid around $11 for it at one of our favorite haunts, the Lawrence Hall of Science. You can follow the link posted above and get the same wonderful watch for about $4. But I’m supporting my local economy and . . . → Read More: rocking hannukah
