    Random thoughts

    I read that you shouldn’t allow your child to watch shows or things like that. My son watches our Kindle Fire when we ride in the car or when he wants to watch something before taking a nap.

    Hello world – a beginning

    Well, I am a new Dad (or will perpetually feel that way). Like a lot of you, I feel super unprepared and afraid of messing my child up, in ways that will require years of therapy for them. I have this fear daily, but as of yet I have not lost or injured him in any noticeable way. This site …
