Snowfall in Atlanta

On Friday, a winter storm warning made its promise. A heavy sprinkle of fat snowflakes descended quickly from the sky in the morning, beginning a definitive accumulation on lawns and cars and kids at bus stops in a few minutes. We were transfixed on the possibility that it could actually stick…

Johnny and Papa Meet Mama

Don’t Lose Your Pants on Halloween

As did countless parents on October 31st, we approached Halloween with a similar enthusiasm that we reserve for discussions about Santa Claus during Christmastime and birthdays in April and June. Jrue was ready to attempt to join a fictional police force for Halloween, and we thought it clever to…

Looks Like We’re Millennial Parents

Millennials, or Generation Y’ers, are the generation vaguely marked from birth as early as 1980 until as late as 2000, though, preciseness is not standard. What is essential are the traits, habits, tendencies, and experiences the millennial generation have broadly incurred, which have proven…

7 Baby Items I Will Miss

Just some weeks ago, I went around the house collecting items to donate that Jai could no longer fit or could use. The tidbits included receiving blankets and bibs from a drawer I had forgotten existed; size 12-month summer clothing; and toys and electronics fit to entertain…
