Posted by on Apr 27, 2012 in Parenting Tips | 0 comments

Ah, the pacifier (or as I tend to call it, the scream plug). I owe my sanity to this little hunk of plastic. But with toddlers and parents so dependent on it, how do you get rid of the pacifier without a fuss? Notice how I mentioned parents? We are pacifier junkies just like our toddlers. From this point forward there will never be an anti whining mechanism so effective until maybe their first cell phone… So how do...

Do As I Say, Not As I Do

Sound familiar? I’m pretty sure it was my dad’s favorite saying. I remember the feeling of injustice that only a kid can experience! What do you mean it’s bedtime?! You get to stay up as late as you want! Now as a father raising two daughters, I can see where my dad was coming from. Sometimes there is just no reasoning with kids. But how do you handle the situations where ‘do as I say, not as I do’...

Life is busy. And life with kids is crazy busy. As a family man, we can have many different job titles. Dad. Husband. Provider. Cook. Chauffeur. Employee…. the never ending list goes on.

Have you ever wondered what babies think of? Do newborns think of anything at all? Or are the just eating, pooping, crying machines? I like to think there is something going on inside their heads. I was feeding Little C her bottle the a few days ago and she had this strange look in her eye. A look like she was planning something. Even though she’s only 3 months old, it was a look of deep thought. So then...

Kids rule our lives with a sticky fist. They let you eat, or sleep, or relax, or exercise only when its convenient for them. So how can you balance work, family, and exercise when you’re being pulled into twenty different directions all day, everyday? One trick I’ve recently started is taking advantage of body weight exercises when I have spare time through out the day.

Her First Sleepover

Tonight Allison went to her first sleepover at grandpa and grandma’s house. A night filled with cartoons and junk food await this little two and half year old. On the drive home Amber and I reminisced about sleeping over at our grandparent’s house. Ahh, those were the days: Sleeping on the fold out couch with stiff, scratchy sheets that grandma bought because they were on sale. Old Disney movies on VHS. Crappy dollar store toys bought for ‘when the...

I’ve noticed a growing trend over the past few months. More and more exhausted parents are finding my blog looking for help with their non sleeping children. And as a dad who loves his sleep, and two daughters that love to ruin it, I’m in the same boat. As if chasing around a toddler during the day wasn’t exhausting enough, what do you do when he or she still won’t sleep through the night? Is your toddler… Waking up...
