My go-to strategy for getting electronic equipment that's not working properly to work again is unplugging it and then plugging it back in. And guess what? It almost always does the trick! (Just call me a technological genius.) I...
Odds are pretty high that while scrolling your Facebook timeline after tucking your kids into bed, you've seen something along the lines of "I was raised not to see color" or "I teach my kids not to see color."...
Thank you so much for being a part of our online community! We want your feedback! We hope you know that feedback from our local Albuquerque moms is extremely important to us. When you all speak (constructively, of course!), we listen....
