There are shortcuts in life

My soon to be 5-year-old has been decoding a message for a couple of days. It’s from one of her activity books and there is a phrase that she has to figure out by turning numbers into corresponding letters. The message is alarmingly religious to her secular parents, but that’s not the point of this […]

It’s Never Too Late To Get New Clothes: Back to School Shopping at Nordstrom Rack

by Claudya Martinez August 30, 2013

Britaax ClickTight Technology

Last month I had the pleasure of flying to North Carolina to check out the brand spankin’ (not that I believe in spanking) headquarters of Britax, purveyors of phenomenally safe car seats as well as strollers and other children’s accoutrements.

Matt Damon as Robin

I’m tired you guys and have nothing deep to share. Instead I thought I would just share some social media awesomeness with you. A couple of tweets that tickled my funny bone: I just saw someone by themselves not looking at a phone. Hope they’re ok. — Josh Hara (@yoyoha) August 22, 2013   If […]

On Children Kahlil Gibran Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their […]
