Last week, my teenager spilled a milkshake on his MacBook Air and I’m convinced it was on purpose. You see, he’s been lobbying for a PC because my current ability to satellite parent requires the household to be on Apple, lest I will have to come up with different parental controls. Parenting … [Read more...]

Toddlerhood International: El Salvador, Day 4
I've now been away for five days, and haven't seen Toddler since I put him to bed six days ago. Spouse and I have been talking via Skype, so we have been in regular contact, but Toddler is a rocket and he only whizzes past the screen occasionally.

"Ohmas? Ohmas? Omhas?" Toddler mews, his voice … [Read more...]
One of the things I love about living on the coast is the access to all the seafood I could possibly eat, more or less for free. Spouse and his friends fish for trout and salmon, so our freezer is always stocked with whole and smoked pink fish; if we feel like clams, it's not a long trip … [Read more...]
Toddling into the Terrible Twos.
I guess I could tell you the kid is advanced, because he seems to have hit the Terrible Twos a few months early. We've been doing pretty well - we've been managing moods and mitigating disasters (LIKE MOTHEREFFING CHAMPS), but tonight the levy broke and he spilled over and Spouse and I got … [Read more...]
Just Like His Mother.
Toddler is very adept at maneuvering the playground single-handed; he has to be, because if he wasn't that cookie might actually have to leave the firm grip of his other hand. … [Read more...]
