Don’t Let People Say What You’re Good at Is Useless!

When I was little, things were so structured and stiff -- there was no room for creativity. It seems to me that creativity and intuitive thinking are encouraged far more now days then when I was young. Teachers that empower children to think out of the box and think for themselves are worth their weight in gold. My kids had some really great teachers growing up and I think it helped shape them into the wonderfully creative beings they are today!

Here’s a Super Cheap Way to Make Kids Really Happy!

Kids love geodes, and sometimes collectors are just trying to grid of them. Yard sales, pawn shops and hobby stores sometimes have them for dirt cheap or free. Well, if you give a kid a geode they'll love it. If you let them think they've DISCOVERED a geode, then you've made their year! Here's what I recommend:

Is Walmart + MillerCoors Brewing Company Marketing Beer to Children? [POLL]

Does this promotional item seem fishy to anyone else? It's a headless horseman cardboard cut out that invites you to stick your head in for a fun photo op. Only, there are two problems: 1. It's awfully short for an adult. 2. These kinds of photo ops are mostly popular with children. Am I reading into it? What do you think?

See Everybody’s Favorite Runner at the Black Widow Mud Run!

The Black Widow Mud Run back on Aug. 3 was five miles with over a dozen obstacles. Some people amazingly completed the course in under 40 minutes! We were incredibly impressed with everyone who completed the run, but we all were especially in awe of one particular runner. Everyone was talking about her afterward, and when we all got back to work Monday we were still talking about her:

Watch My Friend’s Toddler Fall Asleep on His Motorcycle [VIDEO]

My friend gave her son a 49 cc quad motorcycle when he was 18 months. That sucker topped out at 35 miles an hour but she governed it down to about 5 mph. He loved that thing and would always ride it while his dad mowed the lawn. One time dad noticed that DJ would start, then stop. Start, then stop. When the quad would stop, the helmet would bob. Dad ran up and saw he had been riding for hours and was falling asleep in the seat! You can't see it in the video, but when DJ falls he gets a face full of grass!

How Much Should I Pay a Tri-Cities Babysitter? [POLL]

The other night I asked a couple people -- including a stranger -- how much we should pay the babysitter if the kids were asleep the whole time. They all said, "Nothing." WHAT?! I know that's not right, but how much is fair? We usually end up paying between $13-$16 for three kids age 6 and below for between 2-3 hours (they're usually asleep for at least some of it). Is that good? What's fair?
