My 3.5 year old son has reached the point where he may be ready to give up his nap. This is a strange watershed moment in parenting because on one hand it’s exciting and a symbol that your child is growing up and becoming a boy instead of a baby. On the other hand this… Read More »

My son is stubborn. I know I’ve said this in previous entries but it needs to be repeated so I can really drive the point home. He’s stubborn in the exact same way that I am. He will only do things when he is perfectly ready to do them not in anyone else’s timeline or… Read More »

There are no more babies in my house. In reality there haven’t been babies in my house in the better part of almost five months. Kaitlyn started walking before her first birthday meaning she’s been a toddler for a while now. It took me those five months to wrap my head around the fact that… Read More »

Comments Off on Character Select: To Infinity and Beyond

This week has been filled with all sorts of discoveries including the ability of my son to pee standing up and the revelation that that baby can say “apple juice.” Probably the most startling discovery for me is that my children are getting older. I realize this isn’t exactly a revelation so much as an… Read More »

It’s been an interesting few weeks on this column. We’ve discussed everything from depression to E3 and back again. Why don’t we stick with the more recent theme of video games and toddler nonsense and discuss the ways in which my three year old is ridiculous (and also very clearly the perfect combination of my… Read More »

Comments Off on Character Select: Electronics, Entertainment, Excitement

I spent almost all of last week talking about video games. I talked about games on podcasts, via IM conversations, on Xbox Live, and I even forced my husband to listen to my diatribes about video games. I showed him trailers and I paced the living room and made wild hand gestures. Honestly, I’m incredibly… Read More »

Comments Off on Character Select: The Games We Play

My last two entries in this wonderful series have been a little heavy. Actually they’ve been a lot heavy with a side of EMOTIONS (yes the capital letters were necessary). I think it might be time to switch it up a bit and talk about something a bit lighter, like video games. This past week… Read More »

Comments Off on Character Select: My Kid Kind of Blew My Mind Wide Open

My son has just turned three and as such he is at an age where he is an endless stream of words, most of which don’t make any sense to my adult ear holes. Most of the sounds that come out of his mouth include quoting his favorite lines from a variety of Pixar movies… Read More »

Comments Off on Character Select: Don’t Force “Old School”

If you’ve stuck around this long you know a few important things about me: first, I play video games and second, I am a mother and a wife. Both of those things are important to this discussion so if you’re just joining me now you are officially all caught up. As of this writing my… Read More »
