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, […]

Curious George 3 And The Girl Who Won’t Stopping Growing Up

Nine years ago this spring, on a snowy Saturday morning, we three ducked into a suburban Philadelphia theater after a brunch with my folks. The occasion deserved a photo, and here it is, although I haven’t a clue who took it. Selfie sticks weren’t invented yet, not that I’d be […]

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. Anywho, PBS KIDS announced this week its […]

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, […]

Netflix Originals’ Grace and Frankie Gives Mature Viewers Something To (Binge) Watch

While all of that makes perfect sense — the four […]
