Let your kid toss a (cartoon) hamster rather than his food: Geared 2

Two words: teenage stepkids. Strike terror into your heart? Exactly. So when I see an opportunity for quality time with my 16-year-old stepdaughter, I grab it. I never would have expected such an opportunity to come in the form of … Continue reading
