Sensory Toy Saves a Pool Day!

My sweet angels love the water. Well, let me rephrase that: they love swimming in water or bathing, but not water on their heads. So pool days are awesome for all of us. Water is an amazing sensory therapy for the girls. Last week, I asked if they wanted to go swim at the pool … Continue reading
