Today's Top Story




Illustrations by Ethan

One of my favorite online places is Kidoinfo.com. Kidoinfo’s creator Anisa, describes her independent weblog as “a new hip guide for parents and kids … based in Providence, Rhode Island, and reaching out to the world.” Kidoinfo is packed with book reviews, creative ideas, things to do, places to go and links to family resources. I visit almost daily and in the Fall (notice that is when school started for the boys and blogging started for me!) I began to write and submit articles. Today I was happily surprised to see that my Around the House Boredom Busters article is the top story. (Links to my other articles can be found along the right margin) Even if you live across the country, I’m sure you will find Kidoinfo a great resource, too.

Yeah, those are pretty good ideas, but nothing can top watching TV and playing Nintendo. It's just a classic.

Good to have you back Fran! But you can craft and watch tv at the same time!

I love this idea!! Oh, and I used to know a guy from Cumberland, RI. He told me the state is pretty small. I was pretty obsessed with Yankee Boys from then on, but ended up marrying a good ole' Southern boy.
I am going to have to do this with my kids. Love it!!
