My son’s 15th birthday has come and gone. You know that phrase “I just can’t even” that people love to make fun of? Well, my son is almost of driving age and I just can’t even. But this post is not about how I can’t even, but about his birthday presents. We tend to spoil him…you know, just to feed into the whole only child myth. Because of that, I often run out of ideas for gifts, since he has everything already. I blame my mom too. After all, her love language is gift giving and she loves to spoil…

Would You Rather? Star Wars Themed Questions for Kids

Let’s say you are stuck at home…bored, tired, and lonely. You just want to go out and have some fun. In the distance to the west, you see a land speeder.

Encyclopedia-like books related to science and his love of sci-fi are his favorites. (My husband’s too!)

Well, we all loved the movie SO much that we went to see it a second time, but half way through the movie (a few minutes before that really big shocking scene, you know the one I mean) a huge thunderstorm hit and knocked the projection offline. For some reason, it takes 40 minutes to reboot the projection, so they couldn’t just pick up where it stopped. Everyone was given refunds, but…

Star Wars M&M’s Lightsaber

Never know what to get your Star Wars-loving husband and kids for Valentine’s Day? I have an idea for you, complete with easy printables. With both ancient Roman and Christian origins, Valentine’s Day has become one of the most beloved holidays around the world. Even before Valentine’s Day became an official holiday, February was known as the month of romance. Why February?  For the ancient Romans, March was the beginning of the new year, so February was a time for riddance and renewal.  The festival Lupercalia was created to do just that, in terms of increasing fertility. It was a very strange event…
