PBS Titles in Walmart’s “Back to School Preschool Promotion”

We received four DVDs from PBS Kids. They were great to have with us on our trip to the Cape. Andrew had a great time watching the Daniel Tiger DVDs and Eva liked the WordGirl and Arthur DVDs. There was also a Caillou DVD which we did not watch but gave to my nephew because he enjoys the show. These DVDs are part of the Walmart “Back to School Preschool Promotion”.

Energizer Headlights #LightMyWay to a Better Night’s Sleep

I did this shopping trip already, back home and that time I picked up a Cap Light and not one of the Beam Headlights. Big Difference.

The title of this post is completely counter intuitive. How can something that lights up give someone better sleep. Oh, I didn’t mean my sleep, oh no, my sleep has been shot for years and vacations only make it worse. We are down in Florida visiting my in-laws for our vacation. Both kids are sleeping in the same room and my son is a terrible sleeper on a good day, on vacation he’s become impossible. This is the third night in a row that I’ve been up at 3-3:30am trying to get him back to sleep. He can get back to sleep with a little work. Me though, once I’m up, I’m up. 3am or 6am, it doesn’t matter. So, I might as well get some work done. Thing is, I can’t go turning lights on all over the house because that would wake people up and I can’t see my keyboard on my laptop from just the ambient light off of the screen. That is where I thought the night mode of the Energizer Headlight would help me best. If I’m going to run all night like the Energizer Bunny (@EnergizerBunny) I had better be able to see.
