We are big fans of the I Spy books, starting with the board book versions I bought when Julian was a baby. We play “I Spy” with regular books, too, and now we’ve graduated into Where’s Waldo? territory. When Julian was four, he and I did a little photo shoot with big plans — still […]
When I saw this activity on photojojo, I ran right out for bulldog clips to get started on a long overdue family photo wall. Unfortunately, my local Office Depot does not carry them in stock (nor does the next one down the street, which I stupidly thought was a different chain… but was the same chain!) so […]

Out of my great respect and love for the fathers in my life, I wanted to share some other folks’ thoughts on Dadding. Let me know what you think! I love this video from Asha Dornfest, a parenting mentor of mine, who published Minimalist Parenting and runs ParentHacks.com. Dads don’t need to act like moms to be […]
Once upon a time, we were all little kids who didn’t understand what “five more minutes” meant. But people said it to us anyway. After a while, we mastered the idea of time and began to use it to organize our lives. But that short window of life, during which there are only two times […]
