Posted by on October 14th, 2014, under VIDEOTAPE

Teaching kids about strangers is tricky business. Some strangers are police officers or emergency workers. Others are dangerous villains looking to do our kids harm. How do we differentiate and teach our kids to do the same? One mother in Korea decided to instruct her daughter on the best way to deal with strangers. The […]

Watching your baby do something for the first time is quite magical. If the baby enjoys it, it’s extra special. As they grow into full-fledged humans with preferences and tastes is a wonderful journey. Sure, sometimes it can be hell. Why won’t they eat the food you prepared?

Posted by on October 7th, 2014, under NOTEBOOK

We’re working on figuring out next year’s prospective kindergarten matriculation for Finnegan right now. It’s a little insane. Between the level of competition and the hum of feverish parents meeting on tours, I feel like we’re in some wavelength of college applications already.

This Baby Plays Better Basketball Than You

Posted by on September 2nd, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I feel like a baller if I hit any part of a trashcan or laundry basket I’m aiming for, and IF I MAKE IT? Well that’s like winning the World Olympics Stanley Series Super Championship Cup for me. I’m a nerd (if that wasn’t evident), so it also makes me feel telekinetic. The reason for […]

Posted by on July 31st, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

There are some things that make me feel like a total amateur as a father. For example, having twins. The very idea just sends PANIC signals down my spine.
