Kid Craziness

A most dangerous game

Think of raising a baby as a game.  A game in which you must always remain at least one step ahead of a little human who is insistent on offing his or herself with things we would otherwise see as non-threatening in our day-to-day, pre-parent lives.  Outlets need to be covered, cabinets need to be […]

The Epic Search For Your Child’s Favorite

It’s approaching your baby’s bedtime. Before the confetti drops and you and your husband kick back to watch one of the many shows you’re probably seasons behind on, you need to get that kid to sleep. So Operation Subdue The Spawn commences. You get him fed, changed and dress him in his favorite fuzzy PJs. […]

Why is it so hard to keep clothes on my kid?

I’ve entered a new era with my 3 year old daughter. She thinks running around naked is hysterical. No, not just at home. At dance, during her Little Gym class and sometimes at other people’s homes. I’ve been successful thus far at keeping her clothed at most other public places. Although, I did see her […]

What’s in my diaper bag

For longer than I care to admit, I was a tabloid junkie.  I would stand in the line for the cashier at the grocery store and peruse for the most attention-grabbing headline regarding whichever celebrity’s divorce or pregnancy or affair or nervous breakdown or freshly bleached bunghole.  I would read about it being news that […]

Closing Time

Ah, chores. Is there anything worse than realizing you got the kids to bed but your day isn’t over yet. In fact, you’re just starting the closing procedures. Like that of a restaurant turning it’s open sign to closed for the night. You look at the house and it’s like a toy explosion met a […]

Breaking from the 9 to 5

For much of my adolescence, I spent weeknight dinners and weekends with my mother, father, and sister. It gave a feeling of consistency and solidity knowing most nights the whole family would be home, gathered around the table, talking about how the kid next door is a future criminal or how the assistant principal is […]

Am I packing for a family vacation or moving cross-country?

It’s not uncommon and certainly not wrong to look back on your days, pre-children, and remember them fondly. More recently, I did this as I was practically playing the world’s worst game of Tetris trying to fit the boatloads of things needed for our week-long vacation in the back of our Honda CR-V. Remember when […]

The holiest of craps

As parents, life is full of little “holy crap” moments. They can range from the good like “holy crap, did you see him take his first steps?!” to the bad like “holy crap, what did you just put in your mouth?” to the literal like “holy crap, what did this kid eat?” Occasionally, there is […]

Sharing Is Caring Except When It’s Germs From That Kid With The Runny Nose

So your kid is sick. I get it. Kids aren’t big on lying in bed and resting while they’re sick. In fact, they’re pretty good about not showing any signs of being slowed down except for the string of mucus connecting their nose to their elbow. So you probably want to get them out of […]

The Day My 3yo Said A Homeless Man Looked Disgusting

I love my kid. She’s awesome. I love talking about stuff with her and seeing how she feels or what she thinks about it. It’s always interesting to hear her take on stuff.   Recently, we were driving and came up to a stop light. There was a homeless man asking for money. My daughter […]
