Remember Cross Country USA and other old games?

For years I have been thinking about the games I used to play in elementary school. The games were grainy, and kind of slow...but that didn't matter because they were still so much fun. Then fast forward to today, I saw my brother in law watching a game on his Ipad and it wasn't until I saw a triangle appear on the screen that I realized he wasn't watching a game, he was playing a game. Technology has come so far! Our children…

Boy, the times have surely changed!

Yesterday, I found myself reminiscing. I was thinking about and appreciating my childhood, old friends and every experience good or bad. I remember going outside to play with my friends. We all had Nintendo and Sega Genesis systems, but those were only played when we had company come over who didn't have their own systems...or we had to be indoors. It wasn't as addictive as games seem to be now…

What Have These Brave Kids Got to Lose?

I am a huge fan of The Biggest Loser TV show.  To me, it’s not just about a group of people losing a large amount of weight and competing for a prize.  It’s about so much more than that.

I am overjoyed that the group behind this show has finally decided to take on the matter of child obesity.  It’s a sensitive subject and, so far, they have handled it beautifully.

Our children watch our every move.  We are responsible for the food we bring into the home, how many times we allow…

Rascal Likes to Play Video Games Too

Rascal came down from the chandelier after the kids went to bed.  He said that he was ready to go for his nightly visit with Santa Claus.  I don’t know why he was in such a hurry to run off, but it must have been very important to Rascal.

Hopefully, he wasn’t off to the North Pole in search of more sweets, this seems to be his favorite thing to eat.  He must have been out pretty late again last night, because he was sneaking back in just as I was coming out of our bedroom to go wake…

Sudoku, My New Hobby

Since the day I am "addicted" to Sudoku, I have downloaded the free games in my "not-so-smart" handphone... at least now I know how to pass time without feeling bored, "impatient", stressful, distracting me from all these anxieties... hahaha...



How addicted am I?  Well... morning and evening "business" allows me to use my brain for at least 15 minutes and I don't smell anything "stenchy" when my grey cells are at work!  hahahaa... Gross?…

Things I've Learned This Week

** All I want for Christmas is a personal chef.  And a bigger bank account to pay for the personal chef.

** A sick kid at home makes for an incredibly unproductive week.

** I've eaten so many damn holiday cookies that you should probably start calling me…

Video Games: Time Wasters or Career Path Makers?

This morning I was taking my kids plus a friend's child to school and I overheard the friend say this from the backseat:

Friend: In Super Mario Party 8 Luigi wins by doing absolutely nothing!

Finally! A game I could actually be good at.

When I was very young I had dreams of being a medical doctor, more specifically, a general surgeon. And then I had a revelation (thanks to Atari) about how truly horrible my eye-hand coordination…

When technology Takes Over Kids

How do you know when your kids are becoming too attached to their technology?  One mom knew when she asked her son to turn off his Xbox game and instead of turning it off, he shoved her.

How to use a map? Activities for kids & parents that don't cost anything.

This is so, so important. I can’t stress enough what a vital skill this is.

I know that you may think now: ‘We’re not going to need that with all the GPS & iPhones & smartphones with satellite navigation systems.’

Well, just imagine you are in a place where there is no cell reception (yes, there are places like that on this planet), your battery is dead, you lost your device, etc. Once again, reading maps is an essential skill. And, after all, all these apps on the…
