My Homemade Playmat


While visiting Whitney and Lauren, Mom discovered how much I liked their playmat, which was passed down to them from another kid who also loved it. Not wanting to spend a gazillion dollars on one, Mom decided to make a playmat for me using my playard, paper clips and toys I already own.


At first I was a little overwhelmed. I mean, didn’t she learn anything when reading about overstimulation in all those books she’s always reading about babies?


But I love it.
