mother

Becoming a mother is a rite of passage, and with this rite of passage, you get certain privileges. After you enter motherhood, you get to say things like “Eat your vegetables before they get cold,” and “Because I said so, that’s why!” Moms get to say these things because they’ve earned the right. And because I said so, that’s why! …

At any given moment, kids can make it one, or all of those things put together. But no matter your current emotion, it always ends with the same result – parents everywhere asking questions to which they already know the answers. …

skills

There are many skills you acquire once you become a parent. Some of them are obvious and well-known to most people, like Moms ears that can hear the tiniest of whimpers in a deep sleep, or growing eyes in the back of their head, while Dads become very adept at sleeping through literally anything.

birthday parties

When I was a kid, birthday parties were nothing but a group of your friends coming over to your house to play, eat some food, sing “Happy Birthday,” and have some cake. Then, somewhere over the following two decades, something happened. Birthday parties became big events, with themes, where you have to invite every person you’ve ever met, and every …

indoor playground

  Since I live in New England, and the ground is still covered with snow halfway through the month of March, my kids are getting a little stir-crazy, to say the least. And so am I. We live in a relatively small space, so during the wet, cold, windy, snowy months (which is about half of them), there isn’t a …
