So much of life is spent waiting. I'm in a doctors waiting room with my oldest daughter, who has a bunch of stuff going on. We have a 10:30 AM appointment, we arrived at 10:10. We aren't too thrilled with this doctor, but he's 'in network,' and seems to provide good, basic information. We take it from there. Thankfully, the internet offers many options to research and dig deeper. We have new sources and options based off of this doctors assessment. I was thinking how radio has the potential to just give the basics also; when those basics aren't enough, the listener can easily go to another site that could provide more music, or good content. It's 11:15, still no doctor. I don't mind waiting for the basics, but I'm hoping you won't make your listener wait that long to be entertained.

PBS offers some fun free summer thoughts here are some baby options:
Everything is new to babies, so they don't need expensive vacations or structured camps to make important discoveries about the world.
Babies are thrilled to start developing control over their surroundings and their limbs. Tearing paper appeals to little ones, because it allows them to use their new-found skills to change the way an object looks. It also makes a really cool sound. So gather newspapers, junk mail, magazines or recycled paper and let 'em rip!
Dine al Fresco
Just because you've had to cut back on restaurant bills doesn't mean you can't eat out. Drag the high chair into the yard or pack the booster for a trip to the park and bon appétit, now you may eat. You'll both enjoy the change of scenery, and the squirrels will enjoy the fallen cheerios your darling leaves on the ground.
Even if you can't make it to the park, you can set up a beach party in your own backyard or on your kitchen floor. Lay a piece of newspaper or a tablecloth on the floor and fill a dishpan or other shallow container with sand or corn meal. Give your baby a cup, spoon, shovel or sifter and let him dig. He'll develop his fine motor skills and imagination as a bonus.
