Halloween Urban Legends

Written by dad - One Comment

It’s Halloween — you know what that means, don’t you? That’s right, ’tis the season for razor blades and needles in apples and poison in candy. Or is it? According to Dr. Joel Best of the University of Delaware, “I can’t find any evidence that any children have been hurt or killed by any contaminated […]

Playgroup Connections, Part Deux

Written by mom - One Comment

I’ve written in the past about the importance of a playgroup in my life. When we first moved here at the beginning of the summer, I didn’t know any moms in the area, and I didn’t know about any play groups. Thus, I took matters into my own hands and decided to start one myself.

Kid Quote: Coke, Caffeine, Fries and Ketchup

Written by dad - One Comment

Overheard while our 23 month old was chatting it up in the midst of our post-soccer McDonald’s feast: “Coke. Coke. Caffeine. Caffeine. Fries. Ketchup. Ketchup.” Needless to say, we are so proud. (And no, we don’t actually let our kids drink Coke, or anything else with caffeine in it.)

Crazy for Care Bears

Written by mom - Leave a Comment

Our four year old has a passion for Care Bears, so I recently bought him “Perfect Panda” to add to his collection. This set off an obsession with the little furry guys. One morning, he retreated to his room for quite some time. It eventually dawned on me that he had been quiet for too […]

Reclaim Your Weekends

Written by dad - 2 Comments

Remember back before you had kids, when weekends were actually relaxing? Nowadays, it seems like weekends around our house are even busier than weekdays. While we try to be sensitive to the possibility of overscheduling our kids (and ourselves), things tend to add up quickly when you have four young’uns. With that in mind, check […]

Kid Quote: An Angry Mom

Written by dad - One Comment

Overheard at the end of our six year old’s most recent soccer game… “Dad, did you see me? I was running so fast it was like an angry mom was chasing me!” No, not an angry mob. An angry mom. Hmmm… I wonder where he gets stuff like that?

Teaching Kids the Value of a Dollar

Written by dad - 5 Comments

I’ve been thinking about ways to teach our kids more about the value of money. When it comes to such abstract notions, we’ve found that it’s far better to give them a bit of real world experience than it is to just talk to them. So… When we went out to a local pizza joint […]
