Indiana Jones had a bullwhip, Gandalf had a staff, and I have a rumpled handkerchief. Most days I wish I had a more powerful signature tool, but then again, I’m no superhero, and a red bandana may be the most useful item available anywhere for 99 cents.
My 5-year-old son’s favorite stuffed animal, Big Bear, isn’t notorious, but like his late, great hip-hop namesake, never said no to smoked salmon. Biggie wasn’t lost or abandoned, just fell in our household stuffed animal Top 40 (how I wish that number were an exaggeration) from his place at the top…
We often indulge kids' odd obsessions, probably because it feels so good to be around someone having so much fun. I’ll take parenting moments that make me feel like a kid again any day over the other, all too frequent feeling of having my heart ripped out and shown to me right after crossing the fin…

After reviewing more than 1300 ideas from around the work, Boot Camp for New Moms was named the "Next Smart Idea" by Clinique in partnership with TED. An ingenious idea to help women navigate through the life-changing experience of motherhood. #BootCampforNewMoms https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFHtz1pw8KU
I used to wonder how such young kids could already be so set in their ways. Then one morning as I fought with Ray, who insisted on wearing a jacket from the previous year, now inches too short on his wrists, to the preschool he had just begun to attend, it dawned on me that children his age aren’t l…
Brian Gordon is a cartoonist. He's also a dad, which means he's got plenty of inspiration for the parenting comics he creates for his website, Fowl Language (only a few of which actually feature any profanity). http://www.upworthy.com/15-hilarious-parenting-comics-that-are-almost-too-real
“Good job, kiddo!” I don’t know how many times a day I say this to one of my kids, and the list of things I say it about is pretty weird. Can one really do a good job taking a nap, peeing in a toilet, or covering one’s mouth when coughing? Is putting your shirt and pants on backwards really doing a…
It wasn’t the white suit he wore, or the Ferrari he drove, or the sailboat he lived in. It wasn’t even the fact that the actor who played him, Don Johnson, was a former Jayhawk. Simply put, when I was 12, there was something I couldn’t explain about the magic of Detective Sonny Crockett, and the sho...

I explain to my kids that this will be our dog Claudius' 15th Christmas. It’s difficult to make them understand how old he is, but anyone can tell he is ancient just from his frosty face.
