Waiting for the Muck to Settle

Posted by on Apr 10, 2014 | No Comments

For Easter, when our son was three, we gave him a Viewmaster. Both my husband and I had a Viewmaster as kids, so we thought he’d like it. Ever since his grandma bought him a broken robot at a garage sale when he was two, our kiddo was totally obsessed with robots. (I’m told that […]
