Remote Learning Tips For Parents. Sort Of.

      Happy New Year! Mid-January is not too late to say that, right?  Anyhoo, 2021 was supposed to bring about big changes from 2020, and so far, it has! For example, around here, instead of being able to send our kids to physical schools, everyone is doing online learning, because the schools have been shut down! New year, […]

Three Parenting Stories

  Now, how’s that for a captivating title? Pretty self-explanatory. Since today is  Black Friday, I got three  random parenting stories for y’all, for the price of, uh, none.  Anyway, let’s get to it!     THE BIGGER PICTURE     I’ve talked on here before about how little kids should worry about little kid stuff, and not real world […]

Three’s Company

    Today’s post is brought to you by the number three. You see, three is a big time number in our house, especially recently, as our third child, KJ, recently turned three years old!

Despite being alone,  I totally went on it, because, well, free ferris wheel ride, duh. As I sat in my carriage, going round and round, taking in the sky high view […]

24 Hours In Chicago

    They say that the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.  Now, I haven’t planned anything with a mouse lately (or ever), but I have with my family,  and, to paraphrase Lizzo: why plans great til they gotta be great? For example, we recently got to spend 24 hours in Chicago. Having never been to […]

Things To Do In Milwaukee With Kids

      Look, I get it. Milwaukee, Wisconsin doesn’t exactly scream family vacation destination. It’s a mid-sized Midwest city known for beer, bratwurst and cheese. How sexy is that? However, I read quite a bit about how internationally-born NBA Superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo loved it there. If the Greek Freak, a man who’s been all over the world, and could […]
