Happy 2 Year Blogiversary!!

It was this week two years ago that I thought (after our epic battle with the Corn Ninjas) that somewhere, we should preserve this level of cockamamie to be re-lived by the internets forever.  To be honest when the then President of BWI Austin (Heather) gave me a log-in for the website, I’m not sure either of us […]

A True Texas Toddler Trial

We do occasionally write carrier reviews here, but we have rules, people!  The way it works is that you send us a carrier you want reviewed, we get to keep it for our library, and it lives a happy life snuggling the babies of Central Texas. I write the review, the manufacturer gets zero input […]
