I had the opportunity to review Jammy Jams Greatest Naps Vol 2 CD. I was pretty excited to have William listen to the songs.
I was impressed by the list of songs and artists. Though, to be honest I don't know that I would recognize these specific songs in their original form, I recognized all buy 2 of the original artists.
William loves any and all music. It's the craziest thing I've ever seen. He listens to classical music, Elvis (rock and gospel), county, Sinatra, '70's rock, hair bands...and everything in between. I've yet to find music that William wouldn't dance to.

What did we think?
Jammy Jams passed the "Did William dance to it?" test. He was jamming with the slow music, moving those little hips, arms swaying to the music. I'm guessing William recommends Jammy Jams for every toddler.
I was not as into the music as he was, but it is very good nap time music for toddlers and babies. The gentle, slow-paced, instrumentals are perfect for drifting off to sleep. If you want to expose your child to something different than your everyday, garden-variety lullaby, Jammy Jams is the music for you.

I was excited to review the UGLee pen. I'm a writer (not just a blogger) so new and comfortable writing implements are always of interest to me. Though I do much less writing than I used to...I am still always on the lookout for the "world's most comfortable ergonomic pen." William is far too young to try this out, so I enlisted Grandma to help out. We both used the pen and evaluated it.
The UGLee pen was developed by Dr. Lee, a Yale and Stanford graduate in search of the perfect pen. They boast that they are the "world's most comfortable ergonomic pen."
What did I think?
What a name for a pen...it's quite an accurate name. It's ugly. It's a bit awkward to hold at first and the gel-like grip is kind of "icky" when you first touch it. It's not really icky, it just doesn't feel like I expected it to and it was strange.
I found the pen to be comfortable for writing, but the ink flow was a bit patchy at times. A quick scribble and the ink started flowing again.
Unfortunately, I have an unusual obsession with pencils. I will use the UGLee pen when I need an ink pen, but it's just not enough for me to switch to ink on a more permanent basis. That's a shame because if I can find a truly awesome pen, I'd switch.
Overall, it's not a bad pen. It's not a game-changer, but if you have trouble with comfort while writing and do lots of it, I could see the UGLee pen being of use to you. If they had an UGLee pencil, I would buy one.
What did Grandma think?
Well, she did not like the UGLee pen. She took it to work with her. It was in her pocket getting all sorts of ick on it. When she came home after a full day of work, we expected the grip to be covered in pocket fuzz. To our surprise, it had just a little chunk of pocket fuzz but was otherwise pristine.
She had more issue with the inconsistent ink than I did. She recommends not bothering with the UGLee pen.
