One of my biggest projects this year is to try and expose my kids, as well as myself to new books and stories. Here’s some of the books we’ve been enjoying in January.
We’re focused on is teaching our children how to have a healthy relationship with technology. There are times when that relationship, can become destructive. When that happens, its time to seriously consider pulling the plug.
So, here’s the scene. My son has been playing with his Leapfrog Tablet for the last 30 minutes quietly. Now I’m getting him ready to put away the technology. I start by giving him a warning that we have to put the tablet away in a few minutes. I can already see the glare and the tantrum stewing in those big, blue eyes. It’s going to be one of those afternoons, eh buddy?
Getting married to my husband was, surprisingly enough, one of the easiest decisions I’ve ever made. I had a few people I know ask me what on earth I was thinking getting married as young as I did. My husband and I literally spent months discussing if this was the direction our relationship was going before even getting engaged. And after engagement we read books, went to premarital counseling, and then blissfully went our way into our happily ever after. Right?
The happy land of Miitopia has a dark shadow looming over it. The Dark Lord has been stealing the faces of the citizens, and putting them on monsters. Its up to you to rescue the faces, return them to their owners, and stop the Dark Lord. Sounds like a happy story, right?
It’s National Puzzle Month!
My almost three-year-old always loved the baby and toddler puzzles, however he’s been getting to the age where he doesn’t find them particularly challenging anymore. So my husband and I decided it was about time to start introducing him to floor puzzles.
