Do What You Love, Kid

By Aaron Gouveia

One of my greatest fears is passing down my laundry list of insecurities to my children.

Will, who recently turned 6 and is in the throes of kindergarten, loves music and loves to dance. Well, he used to love to dance.

Trouble Bonding with Your Baby? Velcro Not Recommended

By Satyan Satmara

I remember the exact moment nearly six years ago when my wife informed me that she was pregnant with our first child. It was decidedly not like those moments you see in a movie.

I felt like I was hit by a car in slow motion.

Best. Game. Ever. (Not to Introduce to Other Toddlers)

Bucket Head sittingBy Homemaker Man

Bucket Head is a game. A great game. One of our favorites.

It involves me putting a yellow plastic bucket down over one of my kids’ heads until their face is completely covered and then using it for a drum. All the while loudly chanting, “Buuuucket HEAAAD! BucketHeadBucketHead!” I drum fairly lightly, and they laugh and laugh and then it’s my turn to wear the bucket. It is elegant in its simplicity.

For Life’s Big Questions, Keep Answers Short and Sweet

By Trevor Mulligan
L.A. Dads Group

One of the big lessons I’ve learned being a stay-at-home dad, which I am sure applies to all parents, is when a question is asked, use the shortest most informative answer possible.

Mets, Citi Field Get More Family Friendly

My family has a goal to visit every single Major League Baseball park and we’ve been to quite a few so far. Because my children are still young, we spend a lot of time at these games walking around and visiting the kids’ play areas. And with three children, our measure of a great ballpark is not just views of the playing field, food offerings and general ambience – it must have a great children’s section.

As I have become a connoisseur of these playgrounds, I can honestly say that our home park – the New York Mets’ Citi Field – has the nicest kids’ area of any I’ve visited.
