Your toys are listening to you

My son is asking our Echo to tell him a joke. To be more specific, he is asking it to tell him a good joke. The joke it repeats doesn't live up to his standards, and after a few more attempts, he complains that "she doesn't even know a good joke from a bad one."…

What's that beeping sound?

When my son was a baby, the smoke alarm went off in our home. It was the same ear-piercing alarm that most smoke alarms make, but oddly, he slept right through it. He didn't even flinch. And, he was still sleeping when the firefighters arrived a few minutes later to give us the all clear that the monoxide alarm was malfunctioning.…

Love now = love later on in life

It must have been a particularly bad dream.



My son doesn't have bad dreams very often, but this one was awful enough for him to leave his bed, make his way down the stairs and traverse through the dark all the way to our bedroom. I woke at the sound of our door opening. He wasn't crying, but I did let him…

Of course, "unsupervised" is a loose term here, because there were always people sitting on their front porches in our small town, but the point is that my parents were not expected to constantly hover over me. And that was great for me, because sometimes I wanted to get in some swing time and my parents didn't have to take me to the…

No news is good news (for young children)

It happened at breakfast. I don't know why these things happen over breakfast. Maybe it is the quietness of the morning. Or the contemplative nature of maple syrup. But that is when my son started randomly telling me the story of how the twin towers fell on 9/11.…
