31 Days of Raising Boys: Everything is a Competition
Did you know that teeth brushing, putting socks on, first one to the door, first one to have their seat belts buckled, cleaning up, coloring and even getting to the potty first, are all activities that can be turned into a competition?   I had no idea.   Si...
