Dad’s Review: Disney’s Toy Story Land

We are just back from a quick trip to Disney World in Orlando, FL, where we spent the bulk of our time at the new Toy Story Land, which opened earlier this summer. Here’s an unvarnished view of the much-anticipated section of Hollywood Studios from a dad who spends way too much time and WAAAYYYY […]

3D Guns Are a Thing?

Two weeks ago, 3D printable guns were low on my expanding list of things to worry about in these fraught times. In fact, it wasn’t on the list at all. I didn’t even know 3D guns were a thing. The only thing I’ve printed on a 3D printer is a Pokemon figure that the local […]

The Summer Tease

This is an ode to temporary summer.  The summer of sleeping in. The summer of lazy mornings and laughter from the pool.  The summer of late bedtimes and movie nights.  I love this summer.  The summer of no packed lunches and little homework, endless Netflix and suggested reading lists.  The summer of a wife home […]

Please Stop Separating Families

This being a family blog I feel it necessary to say a few words about the Trump Administration’s Zero Tolerance immigration policy, resulting in the separation of children from their parents who were trying to enter this country illegally.  First, as a sovereign nation, we must protect our borders. We cannot allow anyone and everyone […]

Dadvice

We can all use a little advice every now and then, especially when it comes to parenting. Oftentimes, I feel like a man on an island when my kids are running me ragged, pushing every button and forcing me to delete my already low reserve of patience.  While I am far from an expert, I […]

In Praise of…Barry Louis Polisar

A runaway dog. A vomiting little brother. A voracious dinosaur who munches on metal. What kid wouldn’t love to hear catchy, memorable songs about topics like those?  Kids can if their parents dig back into the archives of 1970’s & 1980’s music to unearth some musical gems from a man named Barry Louis Polisar. He’s […]

A Sentimental Journey

I can be a sentimental and emotional guy. A dramatic movie might produce tears. A thoughtful and touching card from my wife will likely give me goosebumps. A tight hug and sweet look from one of my kids will likely melt my heart. But on most occasions I remain dispassionate, able to separate my head […]

The End of Full Service Parenting

From the moment out children arrive in the world, we, the parents, are on the clock. There is no need that is unmet, no want that is unfilled and we spend our time triaging each crisis — large and small. The kids’ need to eat. They need to be changed. They need to be soothed. […]

The Age of Flatulence

My kids are “fart jokes” years old. You know the age — everything is “poopy” this and “pee pee” that with a little bit of “butts” sprinkled in. It’s all toilet humor, all the time in our house. And what I’ve noticed is that some of the shows they watch and books they read are […]

Balls and Nuts

It’s happened. My 7-year-old has discovered — with the help of some other boys on the school playground, probably — some of the alternative vernacular for the male anatomy. Yup. From this moment onward, he will never hear the words “balls” and “nuts” the same way again. Forever, when someone asks him, “Hey, do you […]
