A Week Is Seven Days. I Think.

June 11, 2012

I was on my own with the kids this weekend, which was interesting. I haven’t been on my own with the kids since sometime last summer, I think. I actually can’t remember. Which is kind of terrible, isn’t it? I can’t even REMEMBER what it was like to work from home and be the primary [...]

The Point, However, Is To Change It: On Making A Difference

June 9, 2012

I talk to Ana Roca Castro about using technology and social media to change the world – about how you build community online and off, how you use these tools to teach your children about changing the world and, most notably, about how you do more than just TALK about changing the world):

Dads Love Being (Un)Wired For Sound

June 8, 2012

My husband, Kyle, is, as you probably know if you’ve read this blog, like, ever, a stay-at-home dad. Which is, to hear him describe it, a calling with very few adult rewards: it’s a life of endless bowls of Cheerios, repeat viewings of Caillou and ‘The Wheels Of The Bus’ on infinite loop. And any [...]

Tonight We’re Going To Party Like It’s Raining Too Hard

June 5, 2012

So, I finally did it. I broke out the Sauzarita glasses and the Sauza tequila and a whole bunch of limes and I got down with it. Sort of. It was less of a Kittens & Tequila & Firemen extravaganza than it was a tequila-spiked business meeting. Which is, when you really get down to [...]

We’re All In This Together

May 30, 2012

We’re all in this together. Once we know that. We’re all stars. And we see that. We’re all in this together.  And it shows. When we stand. Hand in hand. And make our dreams come true. (High School Musical lyrics somehow seem more profound in a childish hand. Am not sure why, but there it [...]

The Rise Of Moms, And The Rise Of Dads, And How The Twain Shall Meet

May 24, 2012

I’m not going to address the latest dad blogging controversy (You guys! You have a controversy! You’ve arrived! AGAIN!), mostly because it’s a debate over trolling, and I am just so, so tired of talking about how mean we can all be to each other online. I’m tired of even thinking about how mean we [...]

They Say It’s Your Birthday, And That You Want A Kitten

May 21, 2012

It’s my birthday today. My husband has been asking me for days what I want. I don’t know what I want. A day off, maybe. A day off, with a nap. Which is totally not going to happen, not today, anyway. By some accident of fate, I’ll be spending part of my birthday this year [...]

you shall above all things be glad and young

May 17, 2012

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals the power of your intense fragility: whose texture compels me with the color of its countries, rendering death and forever with each breathing… nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands.  (and then… ) here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the [...]

He Can Be Your Hero, Baby

May 16, 2012

The superman… has organized the chaos of his passions, given style to his character, and become creative. — Nietzsche. (And what is the leaping, be-clogged Space Ranger but an Uber-Mensch? What is he, indeed? Ecce Jasper.)
