Turtles have been a big deal in our house because of Disney’s Moana. My son goes crazy for the turtle at the beginning of the movie. In an early scene, Moana sees a small turtle trying to get to the ocean and helps him. In turn, the ocean gives her the Heart of Te Fiti. This starts the whole movie.
When we found out we were pregnant with Baby #2, one of my first thoughts was how to make sure to have special one-on-one time with our toddler. I started combing the Internet to see what activities other parents did to make sure their toddler transitioned well. One of the things that kept coming up was reading books. I’m a fan of children’s books and our toddler Owen has quite the collection already. Many parents had told me that they always did story time with their toddler when they were feeding their baby. I thought that was a fabulous idea!
My family visits Vancouver somewhat frequently. We usually stay near Robson Street in a one-bedroom suite. This time, however, I wanted to check out a different hotel to see what’s out there. I chose the Sheraton Wall Centre for it’s convenient location and ratings on Trip Advisor.
