I participated in the Mary J Blige The London Sessions album review program as a member of bLink Marketing Network. I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own

For it to be Fall, the weather has been incredible in Atlanta and Kai has had plenty of playground time over the last few weeks. If you’re in the city and looking for a good park, check out the Old Fourth Ward playground, Kai loves it!
Although the weather is unseasonably warm for this time of year, I never take for granted that today it will be 70 degrees and tomorrow it will be 40 degrees. Therefore, I love to dress him “playground comfy”, which just means he can play around, get dirty and both of us can feel comfortable while he’s doing it. Want to see more?
