Zigity…Another Fun Family Cranium Game

I have had the card game Zigity for several months but had never tried playing it.  The age recommendation on it was ages 8-adult so I thought maybe it would be too difficult for my six year old daughter Luca.  I finally pulled it out the other night and read through the instructions and decided […]

Thar She Blows!

We were having a particularly sassy night with our boy at McDonalds last night and I could feel the steam building inside me.  I was sitting there turning red and about ready to snap at him when out of the blue Anna yells out, "MOM!  There is an old man right behind you!!"  Out of […]
