Ep. 15: Talking Daniel LaRusso, T'Challa and LeBron

a boy and his LEGO avatar. may 2018 Experience has taught us that the 11-year-old can sometimes be very grumpy. Usually it's because he's hungry, but during long breaks from school -- like holidays or, say, spring break -- boredom can quickly morph into irrational anger if there is no contingency plan. Which is why this spring break was one long exercises in keeping busy. It wasn't like we did anything exciting, we were just busy. And sometimes that's good enough. If nothing else, it gave...

Ep. 14: Talking summer, little bros and kindergarten debuts

old school, new school. sept. 2017 Five years ago, our oldest began kindergarten. His little brother was a few days shy of his first birthday, and our mornings consisted of bus-stop drop-offs and figuring out how to co-exist; I worked while he played, ate and pooped. It wasn't exactly a symbiotic relationship -- or at least it didn't feel like it at the time. Now that the little one is in kindergarten -- we loaded him onto the bus an hour ago -- and it's just me and the dog, the mornings...

november 10, 2016 On the latest Our Monkeys, My Circus Podcast, I talk to the nine-year-old about the presidential election and what it all means -- for him, for us, for our family and for everybody else.

But part of me also feels like this is something we need to talk about, even if he isn't particularly interested in it. Put another way, this is...

Ep. 9: Talking the Super Bowl, Dennis Rodman and Ben Franklin

One of these kids feels like the other thinks he's the king. Of what we're not certain. Jan. 2016 It's another Our Monkeys, My Circus Podcast, and on the latest episode, the eight-year-old and I talk about Super Bowl 50. In a shocking development, he and his four-year-old brother didn't even know which teams were playing (one of them -- I won't say who -- thought it was a soccer game between four-legged animals). Which probably makes their predictions about as accurate as those folks who...
