Bring the Family
Scavenger hunts for curious kids and brain-dead parents
Sometimes parents need a minute, a timeout when they can plant their ever-widening girth on the couch and let the old brain flatline. For a few of us, it’s an opportunity to spend some quality time with the Real Housewives of Whatever City Happens to Be Airing at that moment. On rare occasions (my chin quivers with shame as I write this), my kids curl up on the couch, too, drifting alongside me toward the sunny, High-Def Isle of Catatonia.
