    Hi! Thanks for the great ideas on the podcast yesterday. Can you tell me what was the name of the youtube channel Christy talked about her kids using? I’m pretty sure it was a father/daughter drawing youtube show.

    What a marvelous resource! I just listened to this podcast thinking I might share it with some young mommy friends of mine, and I am so glad I did. I’m not a young mommy, but two of my kids are home from college with me right now. I honestly feel that each of the nine tips shared here apply to my older family as we strive to make the best of this crazy situation and probably others to come. Thank you so much! I’ve already shared this with 23 other families tonight!
