From what my wife has been able to glean of the situation, he pushed […]

Barfing Our Way Back to School

Written by mom - 4 Comments

Our three oldest went back to school this week. The first day had its share of bumps in the road. I barely slept the night before for fear that I had forgotten to fill out one form or another or that I would forget to pack a snack. Everything went off without a hitch: boys […]

Older Siblings More Intelligent?

Written by dad - 3 Comments

Interesting… A recent study published in the journal Science shows that birth order influences IQ scores in boys/men. It’s not a big difference (just two points separate first born men from men with older siblings), but still… Please don’t tell my oldest brother about this! And definitely don’t tell Son #1 – he’d never let […]

First Day of School Jitters? Yeah, Right

Written by mom - 2 Comments

Whatever happened to the first day of school jitters? Our boys slept like logs the night before they went back to school, and had no butterflies in their bellies the morning of.
