Fun With Kids
Having fun with your monsters, stimulating their brains and not losing your shit. *Results not guaranteed. Adult beverages may be necessary.
[Insert weepy violin music here] Childhood is literally slipping through our fingers every day.

The ticking clock waits for no one, and mostly because my need to be a perfect housekeeper, and Stepford Wife is nil.
