Dad in the Box

There are lots of exotic places I would like to visit before I die. The far side of the moon is not one of them. But I understand that traveling to distant lands is a calling unique to the individual. It explains why there are people in the world who seek to explore the Mariana Trench or the Greenland Ice Sheet or Des Moines, Iowa. So I guess China has its reasons for going there. Despite the distance, the far side of the moon is actually easy to get to. Even though it is not on Google Maps, or Google Earth for that matter, one simply ...

The Mommy's Review

I love Halloween! It’s one of my favorite holidays, especially since there is so much to do, and it’s so much fun for the kids. I also love that you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Sure, you could go to the store and buy brand-new costumes and decorate your house like crazy, but it’s also a holiday you can do on a budget. Secondhand costumes purchased from Facebook swap groups? Check. Dollar store decorations? You betcha. Hitting up the free local trick-or-treating events? You can bet all of your Fun Size M&Ms ...

Your Family Matters

Most people say, “When I feel more confident, then I’ll…”  But confidence is not the starting point.  Confidence is the result of experience.  When you take action, plowing through the resistance, anxiety and fear of what lies ahead, that is how you build your confidence and your self-esteem.   Every one of us has experienced resistance around doing something for the first time; continuing to do something that is personally challenging; failure and the vulnerability it brings; and making ...
