Post image for Why I let my kids eat off the kids menu

Before I had kids, I was disgusted at the kids menu – chicken fingers, burgers, pizza, grilled cheese, fries. Why would I put that in my kid’s body if I wouldn’t put it in mine? Fast forward a year after we had our first (J), and I welcome the kids menu with open arms. Oh, […more]

Post image for Page Turners: Ready Player One

All I knew was that it had lots of 80s references and there was video-gaming and danger involved. Well, I really liked it! And surprisingly, so did Shelly who gave it a 5/5.
