A Day with Dad

My husband’s job affords me the ability to work from home, giving me the opportunity to spend time with my kids. His job also means long hours for himself. To make up for this he makes an effort to plan one-on-one time with the kids.

Do Dads Need Change Table Gagets?

When my kids were born, I opted to stay home to care for them while my husband worked. This meant I handled most of the day-to-day baby care but my husband was an active and willing participant. Nowadays, more men choose to play an active role in childcare so it surprises me that gadgets like The Ultimate Change Table enter the scene.

If dad is present in the home and engaged with his daughter it is more likely that she will not have sex before the age of 18. […]

Inside Your Wife’s Head: Defragging the Hard Drive

She’s not as playful as before the kids’ arrival. Perhaps she’s more curt and distracted and it seems harder to engage in the same conversations that you had when it was just the two of you. You look at her and wonder, what’s going on inside her head? If you want to understand, think of her brain as the dependable family PC. […]
