Minecraft-A Family Game

Do you play video games with your kids or do your kids play alone?  I was recently talking with one mom about Minecraft and she was impressed that I knew so much about the game and that I actively played it with Creative Kid instead of him playing the game…

Making Time For Mindi

Every book, every blog, every doctor will tell you that you need to make time for yourself after you become a mom.  Why is it that we need to be reminded?  We tend to get wrapped up in our children and their needs.  As a SAHM, there is no break…
