Today is my birthday, and as I think of what milestones this new age will bring, I also reminisce on those of the past. Though I can’t remember the first time I used a toilet or the last time I took an afternoon nap, I’m sure my mother can, and that she felt the same emotions as our top tweeters this week. Unlike @daddysweeney’s son, though, I never hid from the... Read More

It’s the last month of summer, but there’s still time for family vacations—including incredibly lengthy ones, apparently, and ones that require the home cooking you thought you were getting a break from.

With so much technology available to keep us occupied, it’s easy to forget there are a million ways to have fun outdoors. When everyone is all tuckered out, take a nap! Adults included.   Just thinking about how adult life would be way better if... Read More

Oh summer, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways you were my favorite season as a kid: sunshine, swimming, summer camp, and every couple years, World Cup soccer! Parents love summer for the same reasons…right? Our favorite tweets this week might prove otherwise… Taking a toddler to the bathroom at the pool = 20 minute+ experience. — Mamatoga (@Mamatoga) July 21,... Read More

HI EVERYONE LOOK OUTSIDE TODAY IT’S REALLY SPRING! Sorry for shouting. I’m a wee bit excited. I’ve been waiting for this day since…well, since the last day of summer, pretty much. I love seasons, and I wouldn’t give up fall or winter for anything, but c’mon, who doesn’t love a glorious spring day? So I won’t keep you for too long,... Read More

Hi, welcome to April! I couldn’t post this feature on Monday like I usually do because yesterday was April Fools’ Day, and everyone assumed everything on the internet was a complete lie. And mostly it was, which I hate, so I actually tried to avoid the internet all day yesterday (a difficult task, seeing as my job is literally…reading and writing on the internet).... Read More
