Playing with Attitude

Playing with children can be a pain, playing with toddlers is a hell all its own. Don’t get me wrong I love hanging out and playing certain things with them but when it comes to things that involve imagination that’s where things get sketchy. For instance, Barbie’s; they come with so many “rules” and apparently… Continue reading Playing with Attitude
