5 Ways to Counteract the Baby Proofing of Modern Childhood

It was called husky back then, but I was what I was: a fat boy who rarely saw the sun. Years before websites, blogs, and vanity url’s would become actual things, the furnished basement of my parents suburban home was my domain. And a Nintendo gaming system with a protruding […]

Petz Beach Is Even Better Than The Real Thing

On our last flight home from wherever we were, we four straddled evenly the center aisle of row 16. Mouse was next to me, in the middle, anxiously waiting to see who would occupy the window seat. The Bear cuddled up next to mommy, an extended-arm’s length away from me […]

Being A Better Parent Means Being A Better Driver

It’s all connected. All of it. I’ve never had a drink, I’ve never done a single drug, and I try like hell to never look at my phone while at the helm of the family car. My burning desire to be keenly aware for and of every waking moment started […]

Inventing With Amazon’s Annedroids

“We didn’t fail, we found a new way of doing it wrong.” That sentence, cheerfully said by Anne in the first episode of Amazon’s original live action kid’s show Annedroids, defines the core tenant of inventing. We fail but we do not give up. We fail but we learned something […]
