You want my advice?

A friend of mine with a newborn ranted about people giving advice to parents. I don't judge there's tons of crappy advice out there, and there is also an abundance of people who think they have the answers for all kids. I know I don't have the answers, which is why I try to never give advice.

Sure, I can tell you what I did. Well, maybe I can, but I'd probably have to check my notes, because I don't have a clear recollection of what my kids were like as newborns. I remember being a crazy person. I remember dissolving into tears one night at zero-dark-thirty when one of the beans was making it known that sleep wasn't happening, and wondering aloud if I was cut out for this gig. But I no longer have an emotional connection to that memory.

Time Waster - Catch theCrowns'

'Catch the Crowns' is a physics game that places the player in the role of Rob, the last loyal guard to the king who has had all his crowns stolen by his other, less loyal guards. Using a variety of weapons at his disposal, Rob dispatches the blackguards mostly by dropping heavy objects on their heads or using explosives or magic.

You basically have to look at what resources you have available, and using the environment and weapons on hand, dispatch the guards, collect as many of the three stars as you can and get the crowns back.

Your inner preschooler

I've been reading about coloring books for adults - yep, just a grown-up version of images that your kids scribble on. Staying between the lines is, as always, optional. If you're expecting me to make fun of this phenomenon, you will be disappointed. I think it's great.

One of the nice things about having kids is that I get to play with some things that I had packed away some time ago. I know this is something most parents go through, the rediscovery of your own childhood through your kids. The line tends to get a bit blurred with parents really wanting their kids to like what they liked, be it sports or 'Star Wars.' And really, no judgement I get the thrill of having your kids like something you enjoyed as a child. It's a blissful bonding moment. I was stupidly happy when my kids started liking dragons and dinosaurs but it's also fun to learn about excavators.
