My Wife Just Binged… #334

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK

Walking down my driveway the other afternoon, I noticed a honey bee struggling weakly on the pavement. This is nothing new, and my first thought was, as soon as my son comes home, he’ll figure out a way to get that bugger’s little ass dagger stuck in his bare foot. I was right about to […]

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK

Freak out. Because that’s what I’m doing right now with my newly-minted 8-year-old. Just kidding. Well, not really. Eight years-old is one of those ages that can make parents go full-on existential crisis mode. The obviousness of your kid no longer looking or acting like a baby is startling.

My Wife Just Said… #333

Posted by , under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

Last weekend my wife and I went on a date night. I can’t remember when the last time we did one, honestly. Either because my memory is that wrecked these days, or it was so long ago that it’s hard to see past the mental cobwebs. Probably both. Make that definitely both. During the day, […]

My Wife Just Said… 332

Posted by , under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

I can’t be the only parent who’s gotten caught into a rut with family movies. My son is young enough that there are a bunch of movies that come with the price of nightmares or restless sleep, so there are some extra limitations beyond what’s generally considered age appropriate or not, not to mention whether […]

I’ve joined forces with Responsibility.org as one of their paid ambassadors for their TalkEarly campaign, which is about, well… talking early about alcohol responsibility with your kids.
