My family and I would use this to play active games together. I love anything that gets my kids up and off the couch!

When I applied to journalism school, I was drawn to the idea of immersing myself in dawn to dusk work to to cover important events and take part in history. I badly wanted to be part of the media mix.... Continue reading

When I was a kid in elementary school, we had semi-frequent fire drills. The alarm would go off and we would all line up and file outside. We'd patiently wait until the principal told us we could go back inside... Continue reading

I'm always hearing stories these days about how connected we all are online and how we spend too much time sitting at our computers. Stories like that first make me defensive (but my online community has done so much good!)... Continue reading

The snowbanks at corners and in parking lots are incredible. I feel like I want to go mountain climbing every time I see them. To: stimeyland@gmail.com

He turns 5 in May, so its late, but not THAT late. These very same people encouraged autistic Jack, who has almost exactly the same birthdate to go to kindergarten on time. And I was considering holding him back. To: stimeyland@gmail.com

Good luck! I have had the exact same experience trying to get back into running in the past. This program really eases you into it. Its great. To: stimeyland@gmail.com

Megan, I totally get what youre saying. My husband and I started running at the same time a few years ago. He did it for a while, but he HATED it. If its not the exercise for you, you might do it, but I dont think youll magically get that positive feeling. (Especially if it didnt show up after 18 months.) I think—and remember that I have not regularly exercised for a LONG TIME—that you have to find the exercise for you. Is it dance? Is it yoga? Is it rock climbing? Is it the elliptical? Is it running? Maybe its brisk walking. How about stair running (which is AWSOME, btw, IF you can find the right stairs)? Soccer? Find some music that makes you really happy and listen to it while you do it. Good luck! To: stimeyland@gmail.com

Seriously, I dont know what it is about the way kids manage to knock parents on the most painful part of the nose over and over, but yeeeouch! To: stimeyland@gmail.com

You would think so. The arguments Ive heard against doing so are that they would have to move more than one grade because the 5th grade isnt big enough by itself, they need those kids to be patrols, and they dont want to deprive the older kids of the perks of being the senior class at the school. So, yes, I think it does make more sense, but I think I would be upset either way—if my kindergartner were going or if my 5th grader were going. Tough situation. To: stimeyland@gmail.com

Nice. It sounds like you've thought carefully about all of these and that they mean a lot to you. My dad was a marine, so I have a soft spot in my heart for you guys. And next time I get a tattoo, I'll have to check out your buddy Paul.

Thank you for this comment. I think that is definitely what Alex is thinking. More food for thought...

I love your idea for a tattoo. I think you should get it. Maybe on your wrist. Isn't that funny how there are still double standards for so many things? Or, you know, not funny.

Liza, thank you so much. This is a wonderful comment, and you're right. We definitely need to talk about this more. And, yeah, he works with a lot of more conservative, sometimes older people. So he's definitely in that culture. Compromise is hard.

I agree with you. I don't see it as a big deal. I don't judge people differently if they have a couple tattoos. Thanks for the comment!

It's funny you say that about "a body part you want to look at that much." My favorite tattoo (the dove) is on my back. And I never get to look at it. Nor do most other people.

Great comment! Thank you. And, yes, I think I will give it some time before I make my decision of where to tattoo.
