Genius Baby

June 16th, 2006 · by sarra · 1 Comment

Link has been home sick, and we’ve been playing with his toys. I brought out a puzzle he’s had for a while, but never seen for him to play with. It’s actually age-appropriate. He figured out the circle piece right away. The square and triangle are a little more tricky. Presenting: The Puzzle Master We’re [...]

Excellent article over at Corante about how taking care of a baby is much like playing an RPG, only with hyper-realistic graphics and fewer random monster battles.

Daddy’s day off

January 18th, 2006 · by alex · 1 Comment

I got to spend MLK day with Link since we both had the day off. After explaining the importance of civil rights and the sacrifices many people made to present and force the passage of important laws, we played with plastic toys made in China. This was my first full day alone with him since [...]
