Papa Bear and I (and most of our friends for that matter) are big table top gamers, and spend a little too much time on Geekandsundry.com. We got into table top games when our friend introduced us to Table Top with Wil Wheaton (yup that kid from Star Trek, who plays himself on The Big Bang Theory), and the nerdiness just consumed us from there. (Table Top is an online show where Wil Wheaton and his friends get together, play games, and explain their nuances.) We like the show because we can decide if we actually like a game before we purchase it! We are big on quality time in our family, and enjoy staying home and playing games on weekends, many times just the two of us. Sometimes it can be difficult to find good two player board games, so I figured I’d share some of our favorites with you!

Carcassonne:

This is a European style tile laying game modeled after a French City is super simple and different every time you play. The objective is to collect the most points; you gather points by connecting roads, building cities/monasteries, and establishing a farm. You play a knight, a robber, a monk, or a super lazy farmer. Carcassonne is great for two players or up to 5 players of all ages, and really easy to learn and you could play for hours if you wanted to! They have great EXPANSIONS TOO!!

The Journey into Mom Blogging

How a Mama Bear Becomes a Mom Blogger…

Welcome! Thank you for reading the very first post of Memoirs of a Mama Bear (my journey into Mom Blogging), please take a moment and subscribe to receive notifications about upcoming posts! Well, now that we’re all here, let me first thank my friends and family who are inevitably reading this post out of obligation. (HI GUYS! Thanks for the support!) But, for those of you who don’t know me personally, I am Mama Bear, a title that has recently taken on new meaning for me. My husband (Papa Bear), has been calling me Mama Bear for as long as I can remember; however, recently we created a little baby bear of our own. Now, it’s no longer a quirky little nickname my husband calls me that needs to be explained to those weirdos who don’t consider having fur children as valid parenthood…Monsters.

I decided to start this blog due to my own late night web scouring during my pregnancy and first few weeks of being a sleepless new mom. As many women have complained before, pregnancy kind of sucks. Its not “beautiful and magical” or whatever other line people have fed you. I mean its totally cool that you’re growing a tiny human all by your onesie but, you don’t sleep, you pee like a gagillion times, and the hormones, GAH the blind prenatal rage put my normal every day rage to shame! I found myself being “that” girl, the midnight googler, searching for an explanation of why my left pinky toe turned purple or my wrist smelled like pickles (gross over exaggeration, if this happens during your pregnancy you may want to consult your physician). While many times Web Md made it feel like me and my unborn child had some ancient form of leprosy, the interweb mom bloggers normalized my experiences, and I could find at least one post or comment of someone else who experienced something similar, easing my worried mind.
