As a parent, I both love and loathe doing crafts with my children. I want them to make stuff.

This conundrum was solved with the Birdseed Ornament we made with our moms year after year. read this article

The Talk and the Book Mon Mar 16 2015

Defying the Manifesto Wed Feb 06 2013
As a child I made mental notes of all the ways I thought my parents or teachers were screwing up and vowed never to do those things when I got to reign superior over children of my own.

My Child Has Been Eaten by Aliens Mon Nov 24 2014
My kid has obviously been eaten by an alien and replaced with a really convincing replica. Nothing else makes sense. I didn't notice anything unusual until Friday.
