How To Improve Your Sanity During the Covid Crisis

It’s unbelievable. While it seemed that life was about to finally get back to normal with the gradual opening of states, all of a sudden an uptick in COVID-19 cases has hit the country like a tidal wave.

Discussing weight with your child

My son is shuffle/waddling down the stairs, complaining that his pants don't fit him right. He is frustrated about this to the point that I imagine him upstairs trying to play immediately after getting dressed only to have to pull up his pants half a dozen times before he gives up and seeks help.…

Lullaby and I am paying attention to you

I am not a great singer. While I remember a lot of lyrics, I can't really keep a tune. So my singing is limited to when I am in the car by myself and I am convinced that no one else will hear me.…

The robots that will live amongst us

"What's that?" my son asks. I was looking at one of those "remember these" list posts that people my age look at when we feel nostalgic. He was pointing at an original Furby. I tried to explain to him that it was a fluffy robotic trendy thing that was popular more than a decade before he was born.…

When I shouldn't shield my son

I often remind my son that I am trying to teach him to be a person in the world. This is why he has chores, is responsible for making family dinners some nights, has to contribute to discussions on vacation planning and has to figure out how to entertain himself when he is "bored." But there is one area in which I still protect my son: Tragedy in the news.…

What colleges want from your kid

I was recently listening to two of my girlfriends who each have older children chat about the college admissions pressure that their kids were going through. I heard the expected comments around grades and test scores and extra curriculars, but then I heard some things that shocked me - including that the discussion around college started after eighth grade.…

Starting the science education early

My son loves science. He has grown crystals in our kitchen, created chemical reactions with science kits and made slime more times than I can count. I have marveled at the teachers in his preschool who started the science conversations early, and I love hearing about all the experiments he gets to do in school now.…

My partner in life

more extensive than mine. So while I could spend additional time learning how to do the maintenance he does for the house or acquiring his technical knowledge, instead I focus on how lucky I am that I have a partner in life who rounds out my skill set.…

The baby is crying



I'm guessing that you picked up the baby, held him close and started talking to him. Shortly after that, the baby calmed down and stopped crying.…

The potty training will eventually happen

There is nothing that quite prepares you for parenthood. At no point of time before I had my son would I have believed that I would one day be genuinely proud of another human being for using the toilet.…

The balance that was passed on to you

Like many working parents, I struggle with work/life balance. At least once a day, I wonder if I am spending enough time with my family, or if I am committed enough to my job. I do my best to model a family first attitude for my team, but I know they have seen evidence of me working late into the night from time to time. I hate not knowing how my son will really feel about having two working parents - and the effects upon his life from…

Let that teen get to work

Think about your first job for a moment. I'm guessing that it wasn't your dream job, but I am also guessing that you learned a lot. You probably learned how to deal with a boss, and how to treat customers; you learned how to handle your money and how to own up to your mistakes.…

An excuse to hold more family movie nights

I love when we have a family movie night. There is the popcorn, the curling up together on the couch and the ability to pause the movie when someone needs a drink refill or has to use the bathroom.…
