Baby essentials I didn’t use with my 2nd kid

Becoming a mother the second time around I was a lot more chilled because I knew what to expect. Even though Rushdi was a relatively easy baby (aside from the constant vomiting), we still got ALL THE THINGS, because that is just the thing you do when you’re a first time parent.

Money flying everywhere, complaining when I had to pay him rent for a property he owned and also Daariya tried to eat everything. So I thought I’d try something a little more on his level: My First Bananagrams. What is My First Banangrams? It’s the kids version of the original  ...
