We should all have a little more fun.

I’m writing my first post of 2016 on my phone. This is a thing I generally dislike because it seems so – I don’t know – flip? Like whatever post results isn’t an official piece of writing since I have a whole library of emojis at my disposal to use in lieu of words? 🎉🎨🐣🕸🍜 […]

The Red Bandana

Things are not always hard. But sometimes they are. Sometimes, your child will dangle her newly-acquired red bandana out the open window of your moving car.

The One Simple Thing That Makes Three-Year-Olds Unhuman

I have had a long weekend. I mean, yeah, it’s Labor Day and all, so obviously I’ve had a long weekend. What I mean is that I would give my left arm for a nap right now. Since Friday, my work has been holding its biggest fundraiser of the year, a three-day music festival all over […]

Everything I Ever Needed to Know About Life I Learned From Dr. Seuss

I pride myself in providing my kid with quality reading material. Whether or not she actually wants to consume it is an arbitrary issue. To be honest, C would much rather play cowboys at bedtime these days than she would read a book. I think she’s onto us; she knows that stories make her drowsy and […]

Smile! Dads Get Judged, Too!

Smile! Dads get judged too!

One of the super fun things about motherhood is the way everyone has a better idea of how to raise your child than you do. Whether you’re being lambasted on Facebook by Judgerson McGillicuddie when you post a picture of your 11-month-old eating bananas and OH MY GAWD HIDE THE CHILDREN peanut butter, or you’re being scolded by a senile hairdresser […]
