INK – Interactive Neighborhoood for Kids

This place is definitely off the beaten path – and is also well worth the drive! Plan for a long visit – your kids will not want to leave! They have created a mini-world for kids where they can ‘be’ a Dr who takes Xrays to a dentist or a vet who actually uses the tools of the trade. There is a grocery store with shopping carts and check out. All of these are kid-sized for maximum fun. They sell a small selection of snacks and have a large room where you can take a break and picnic with your kids. Bring your own lunch – they encourage it. Then get back to the fun and let your kids play dress-up, fly an airplane or do almost anything their imaginations can dream up!

I give this place 5 stars….you will too!

My Crazy Blessed Life!

Sooooo… I have a three-year-old little girl who is full of drama.  Probably not the only one in history, but one of my current dilemmas.  When time out time comes for bad behaviour I find myself with a little girl on the bottom step screaming, kicking walls and not able to even calm down enough to learn her lesson.  This was getting worse and worse until I told my husband, “there has to be a better way, I’m going to research this.”  So I went online and read other mom’s advice, dr’s advice, psychologist’s advice, etc.  Nothing was really working.  Finally I saw something called a mind jar.  This was a mason jar filled with water, clear gel glue and ultra fine glitter.  You shake it and the glitter settles slowly as you watch you relax.   The original ones I saw were to teach children to meditate (not my goal).  I loved…
