Learning how to play at recess

Every evening at dinner I like to ask my son what he did at school. If I am lucky, I will ask the specific enough question to get him to tell me about an actual event that happened (instead of getting the "I don't know" or "it was good" stock answer). I love it when he tells me about his day, and it is worth it to figure out the right series of questions to get him to talk about it - suddenly a whole world of information will come out of…

For example: When my Mom was my age she had a 16-year-old son and a 13-year-old daughter.

Cheap Board Games for Kids

Cheap Board Games for Kids

One day after school, I took the munchkins out for a treat. It was a sunny day and, as you may know, sunlight can do wonders for a person's mood! We stopped for a snack of cheese fries and ice cream- not the healthiest snack, but it's nice to splurge occasionally ;) After we'd filled our bellies and satisfied our cravings, we walked over to a Goodwill store nearby. The plan was to find me a good book…
