One thing – sometimes I ask the universe for just one good thing.
Usually, it’s a word from someone I love, or a gesture. I feel like if I can get just this one thing, I can carry on. I get it sometimes. It’s a well-timed text, a smile from a stranger. Maybe it’s a Norah Jones song on the Pandora or the biggest slice of pizza at the café.
Lately, that something has come in just the nick of time has pretty almond eyes and killer soccer shot.
Grace has been a life-saver. At times I feel downtrodden or can’t figure out why people do what they do or say what they say or why the universe seems to have left me at the terminal, Grace comes through. She plans time for us together. She texts me.
She picks out my outfits. Marvelously.
Today, she’ll make her blogging debut here on Coach Daddy. She wanted to share some of her favorite websites. Grace has talked to me about starting her own blog, and even penned the text for her about page, including shout-outs to her daddy’s blog.
Please give my loving girl a warm CD welcome.

We all know that time in a kid’s life, when you are sitting on the couch, bored. You are just looking at the Google screen, wondering what to type in, but … nothing.
I did the research; let me tell you a couple I know.
First, Dust the Game, as I call it. In this game, there are different solutions, I should call them, such as magna, gun powder, C-4, water, stuff like that. You mix it together to make… EXPLOSIONS!!!
This is Sand
Now, This is Sand, well, that pretty much covers it. It’s sand you can pile up, I guess. You need to have concentration, and a LONG attention span. Sometimes, I get frustrated and want to punch the computer screen, but, that’s me. Most of the time, it’s really fun.
Let’s define that, for the website, Fun Brain.
‘’Fun’’: mostly fun, for little kids, but an older kid’s part.
“Brain”: Not At All. That’s the fun of it, No education needed!
Okay, two more, my favorites.
You make an avatar, then, you go around on missions, on Poptropica.
You can meet people (no, not online dating), and you can shop for clothes for your person. Best part yet, almost, kind of, mostly free. If you want a full membership, or outfits, pay for that, but you can live without it.
Last but not least (my favorite) Science Bob.
My favorite thing to do is experiments. I’ll look on a ton of websites, and they all have kid-ish, baby experiments, like, a homemade snow globe, or, silly putty. Science Bob has really cool experiments, like a soap-powered model boat, or a hovercraft you can ride.
All these websites are easy to find, and fun to do, so why are you still reading this?
What sites do your kids like the most?
