Thursday, 22nd November 2018, I woke up worried about DJ’s party which was happening the next day. The party was on a Friday and most parents had to go to work and their kids had school. I had invited a couple of friends with kids, Kobby’s nephews and nieces as well as mine. A few […]
“A baby sprinkle is just like a baby shower but scaled down. If mom is on her second, third (or fourth) child, consider throwing her a baby sprinkle instead of a full blown baby shower.
