gaming dragon's pit

Five Nights at Freddy’s was made by Scott Cawthon because when ever he tried to make games anyone who tried it said they were horrible and the avatars looked to creepy to be a kids game. With that in mind he used the idea of a haunted chunky cheese and made the first Five Nights […]

MY REASONS FOR NOT VACCINATING   Answer to prayer. Of all the controversial or unconventional parenting decisions I’ve made (not circumcising, extended breastfeeding, home birth, gentle/respectful parenting, homeschooling) this has by far been the most difficult, because there is so much fear on both sides.
