My Baby Graduated From Pre-K

In August 2017, I reflected on the philosophical meaning behind my first child’s admittance into pre-kindergarten in a blog post. I talked about adjusting to a new wake-up time and an odd pick-up time. Jrue used to verbally disgorge everything he’d heard in a day in to-the-minute vocal tones…

The Crying Games

My 4-year-old son and my soon-to-be-2-year-old daughter have wrangled up a new kind of competition. It seems to entail, as its most fundamental groundwork, which one of them can cry first, longest, and loudest. I started to notice the bidding a few weeks ago during one otherwise peaceful…
