My son turned four last month, and it took two weeks to open all the gifts, one to three presents a day. It’s a tradition we’ve had since his first birthday with us, when he turned two and our friends’ generosity was so overwhelming that we had to institute that policy. It seemed to work. As [&hellip
I don’t mind getting older, but the only people who are really excited about it are kids. Our soon-to-be four-year-old son is still at the age where you get better every year you’re alive. I pointed out how strong he was, and he said, “I’ll be even stronger when I’m five in kindergarten!” “Yes,” I [&hellip
Some parts of parenting aren’t tricky. You shouldn’t spank. You should play with your kids. You should kiss their boo-boos. You should listen to their stories. You should tell them not to pick their nose or grab their teachers’ boobies. The harder lessons to teach are the ones that take awhile – how to [&hellip
It’s summertime. I know this because I looked at my calendar yesterday and saw “Mikey’s Hawaiian Luau Popluck Summer Kickoff” listed for today. This is the preschool potluck for which I have to make a main dish. I could have made a side dish or, better yet, a beverage, which would have required no work [&hellip
I’ve mentioned it in an earlier column, but Ian and I have been recertified as foster adoptive parents, to see if we can find one more member for our family, a little brother or a little sister for Mikey. We’ve received a couple phone calls about possible placements – a little boy and a baby [&hellip
We went to a Superbowl party on, rather predictably, the day of the Superbowl, hosted by the parents of one of Mikey’s best friends in preschool. Naturally, we were the only same-sex couple there. When I came in, I asked, “So, who do we hope is going to win?”
The room full of people in Giants jerseys rolled their eyes collectively.
I asked the host whether he watched football with his son, Mikey’s friend, and he said that Brian didn’t have much interest. “But he will.”
I’m sure he will. Most boys figure out pretty young that the best way to bond with their fathers is to emulate their enthusiasm for their favorite sports. Mikey and Brian played together for the entirety of the party, until the crowd in the den cheered or groaned, and then they would both run in and join us with, “Yay!” or “Oh, rats!”
Needless to say, my level of involvement was about the same, going along with the crowd. Ian, who is not only gay but British, was right behind us.
The part where we all were able to connect as a group was over the Madonna halftime show and food.
Ellen DeGeneres, the 54-year old Emmy Award winning comedian and TV talk show host — who happens to be a lesbian woman married to another lesbian woman — has been attacked by the American Family Association (AFA) for her new role as spokesperson for JC Penny. The AFA’s “One Million Moms” project is a militant, [&hellip
