Why You Should Apologize To Your Children

Apparently, NOT saying sorry to your kid is a thing. A thing that actual parents do. On purpose. For what illogical reasons I can only guess; to be tough, to be dominant, to show no sign of weakness? I cannot imagine not being upfront and honest with my kids, or […]

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts From The Seat of Your Pants

I had just strolled into my oldest brother’s bedroom when I smelled the smoke. My feet barely brushed the fabric of the carpeted steps as I bolted downstairs, calling out to my mom. Fire wasn’t something I was accustomed to being afraid of, but my 13-year-old brain knew something wasn’t […]

Discovering New Family Movies on Netflix

While the Bear and I danced to Santigold in concert in Philly (and stayed out way too late on a school night), the Mouse and mom climbed into bed beneath a few blankets on a surprisingly chilly May 1st and flicked on Roku TV in hopes of discovering new family […]

Porto’s And The Chocolate Croissant

Not that croissant, when said properly (not as though it’s nothing more than a gummy vessel by which a shitty Burger King sandwich enters the mouth), isn’t already a fab word and not that it’s not already French, but chocolate croissant sounds better in French because in French it’s called […]

Unexpected Changes of Plan B

The best* pitcher in baseball was cruising with a 3-0 lead in the center circle of a blue and white universe. The K’s were piling up, front-facing and backwards alike, swinging and looking in equal measure, and each of the 41,102 planets in his orbit surely believed that, by the […]

My oldest and I are seeing her perform in Philly this coming Sunday night but until then we’re basically watching her incredible interactive video for “Can’t Get Enough of Myself”, the lead single from Santigold’s new album $.99, over […]

On Boredom and Growing Up Extraordinary

While it can be, how shall I phrase this, excruciating-mind-numbingly-awful slightly off-putting to parent a child who is making extraordinary claims of rampant, unimaginable levels of boredom, I contend still, even after 12 years as a dad (hah, maybe because of it), that there’s little else I’d rather my child […]
