At Home Alone With Narcos on Netflix

September is not a time for youthful Netflix viewing ’round these parts. Instead of snuggling up on cool mornings beneath a fuzzy blanket with the adorable little Roku control in their hands, my daughters are busy falling into a scholastic rhythm which includes, among other things, the restart of nightly […]

Actually, These Are The Droids Tales You’re Looking For

It’s quite the spectacle, seeing my two daughters play with LEGO® Star Wars™. The oldest appreciates the build the most; the process of assembly, the organized chaos inherent in such an endeavor, the thrill of creation. The younger eagerly awaits her turn to assimilate the adorable R2-D2, a stray AT-AT, […]

Opening Up Dad’s Netflix Family Heirloom Vault

My first 8 years were spent on a slab. A rectangle of concrete with a modest square patch of green which put a slight distance between us and our quiet suburban street, the name of which I can no longer conjure. I don’t recall too much about the ranch house, […]

PBS KIDS Summer Safari

As a dad, I’ve never seen empirical evidence of a summer slide in my daughters. Maybe they are too young to experience a substantial and obvious loss of knowledge or maybe we’re just incredible parents who maintain the educational tip year-round…um, or something.

Broken Yet Unbreakable (Kimmy Schmidt)

It has to have been six years ago or thereabouts. The math gets fuzzy after a certain point, when there isn’t a handy sports championship or painfully memorable (read: extremely expensive) ER visit pin to put in it. Mouse was a toddler still, of this much I am fairly certain, […]
