Have you been looking for ways to brighten your child's play area or bedroom? Or an easy way to turn a nursery into a big kid's room? There are lots of ways to do it. But in our house, we recently discovered wall decals. In the last few months, we've used them to turn my toddler's room into a fun place where he enjoys spending time playing and sleeping. Over the last two years, we had let Mommy-and-Daddy's room become Romper Room. But for just a few dollars were were able to use wall decals to add a lot of color to his room and take ours back. And since the decals are removable, you can change your mind and create a new design when you're ready. (We haven't tried that ourselves yet, since we're still happy with our first set-up.) Here are some adorable ideas from our friends at WallCandy Arts

They don't make them like this anymore. (They really don't!) For this Thursday Throwback, we give you a vintage Electric Company skit "Letterman: Dancing in the Dark" created in the early seventies. It was narrated by Joan Rivers, and stars Gene Wilder as the voice of Letterman.
I wish I could say "I knew these guys way back when...", but I can't. Instead, I discovered Nuttin But Stringz the way many other people did- through Jack's big Music Show on Noggin. NBS consists of two brothers, Damien and Tourie Escobar, from Queens, NY. They're formally-trained violinists who combine classical music with jazz and hip hop. My 2-year-old loves this song, called "Thunder".
Find out more about Nuttin But Stringz on the group's Web site and on the wikipedia page.
