Alright Disney, you got me. I was wrong about you and I admit it. Find out how The Mouse converted a Disney cynic. #DisneySMMC
I said some pretty harsh things about Disney and its devotees in the past. But let's just say sometimes it's good to be wrong.

I don't always understand my oldest son, but I support and admire him always.
My 8-year-old son has chosen scrapbooking over sports, even though he knows it's not a popular (or manly) decision. And I couldn't be more proud.

We're past our due date, and the Internet has no shortage of suggestions for how to induce labor. I've compiled the funniest and most outrageous advice we've received. 
We're past our due date, and we're desperate. So here are the most ridiculous tips to induce labor the Internet could offer.

Some punk yelled something derogatory about my weight during my last run. I have some words for him, as well as all the bigger runners out there.
So here's to all the people out there with a few extra pounds. The people who are far outside of their comfort zones and pushing themselves to limits they didn't think they could reach. Here's to the folks running away from health problems and toward a future with their families that isn't cut short by complications from diabetes or cardiac arrest.

After an unfortunate incident to start the school year, we found an easy and effective way to teach our 7-year-old about empathy, kindness, and karma.
For the last 3 weeks, we've asked my oldest son to give unsolicited compliments to people at school. And just like that, "One Good Thing" was born.

A recent trip to the movies with my 7-year-old proved being a parent is all about "just in case." #parenting  #movies

Dinosaurs combined with construction vehicles? Netflix and DreamWorks have hit the kid sweet spot. Check out my trip to DreamWorks Animation back in June, and why you and your kids will love Dinotrux, premiering on Netflix 8/14! #ad  #StreamTeam
When DreamWorks and Netflix created Dinotrux, a prehistoric world of hybrid dinosaur-construction vehicle creatures, they hit the kid sweet spot.

"I’m not supporting the degradation of kids or calling for the total elimination of positive reinforcement. Sometimes it takes a teacher/parent/friend showing a special interest in kids to make them feel worthy and propel them to success. However, I don’t want my son thinking he’s special just because he’s been told that all his life. Because make no mistake, far too many children fall into that category."
Should we tell kids they're special? An event 3 years ago with my oldest leads me to believe the answer is a resounding no.
