It almost happened this past weekend. Emma almost lost her innocence. About Santa, that is.
We've had our dog Molly for about 8 months now, and you'd think we'd have her pretty well trained. You'd be wrong.
My daughter Emma is what's known in polite circles as a picky eater. Her main food groups are spaghetti with marinara sauce, cheese pizza and cereal.
One of my favorite things to do with the kids is read to them before they go to sleep.
Life with children means learning to live with uncertainty.
Max is at the stage in life where he wants to do everything himself, and it's so darn hard to let him.
Conversations with my son Max have taken a turn for the confusing. He's at the stage in his development where his brain goes faster than his mouth.
My children are artistic geniuses. The girl child can create fantastic, architecturally precise homes out of toilet paper rolls.
My favorite place in the world is bed. Now, before your mind leaps into the gutter, understand that what I love most to do in bed is be unconscious.
My children have never been good sleepers. They take after their father this way. He's a chronic insomniac.
