I've never been on a "Best of" list before. So when I saw this, my jaw dropped and my eyes got teary. This is a mighty list, and a great honor to be along side these fantastic artists.

Pockets Review: Jersey Family Fun 

Another lovely and sweet review! Thank you Jersey Family Fun!

Wait and See is the questions we sit and wonder as we rub our bellies as mothers and as we see our son’s and daughter’s faces as fathers. What will my child be? Will they be curious, will they want to sing, and then as we are wandering we notice how quickly our children, our babies, grow right before our eyes. Remember to dance!
