Just because you’re a parent doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy being productive. Since I’m still the gadget junkie that I was before my little nerd was born, I’ve pulled together five indispensable pieces of technology that can aid any mom or dad with the challenge of getting things done. I’ve learned that it’s a […]

Babies have the easiest Mother’s Day job of all because all they have to do is show up. Literally, a baby can offer their mom her own shoe and it will be the best gift ever. While dads have the challenge of figuring out what to get or do, young children are off the hook […]

Before my son even turned a year old, women fascinated him. Around the time he began interacting with people other than my wife, family and I, he’d smile at any woman that looked in his direction. Men, no matter how nice they were to him, would get either a blank stare or ignored altogether. Once, […]

It continued for days after that, then weeks. As most parents do, I immediately went into self-blame mode. Was it a weird cartoon […]

My one-year-old son Liam and I have rough-housed since he was an infant, so it was no surprise that recently when he got angry with me for thwarting his plan to pour milk into my computer, he hauled off and slapped me across the face. It felt like that episode of Chappelle’s Show when Rick […]

LOS ANGELES (AP) — At its prime, the space shuttle Endeavour cruised around the Earth at 17,500 mph, faster than a speeding bullet. In retirement, it's crawling along at a sluggish 2 mph, a pace that rush-hour commuters can sympathize with. Endeavour's 12-mile road trip kicked off shortly before midnight Thursday as it moved from […]
