Tour KinderCare’s Open House on August 13th | @KinderCare #TourKinderCare #ad

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of KinderCare. I think you know that I have a child with special needs. He may look typical, but when he was younger, he had major speech delays.

Clear Alternative to Braces @Invisalign #INVStraightTalk #Ad

Invisalign Teen (c) Let’s Play OC! A few weeks ago, I was invited to learn about the new alternative to braces in an info session with Invisalign.
