Did We Put The Kids In The Carry-On?

Maybe the person who wrote the article I just almost read is a parent.

Maybe.

I’m not saying it’s not possible the person who wrote the article is a parent.  I’m just saying that when I saw the title, 50 Ways To Entertain Kids On A Plane, I figured it was written by either a parent or some other individual who has spent a lot of time traveling with children on planes.

Fun Times At The ‘Ole Urgent Care Center

I’ve taken my pack members to the Urgent Care Center 3 times in the last 2 weeks.  It’s soccer season so that’s about par for the course.   But, years as a parent have taught me that everything is what you make of it.

You might be a Car-Zombie if…

I’ve been in the car for hours every day for the past 5 days or so.  I have no doubt that I’ve been in the car way too much lately.  In fact, I think I‘m a certifiable Car-Zombie at this point.  But, perhaps you’re wondering whether you have yet passed that “Too Much Car Time” threshold and have turned into a Car-Zombie yourself.   Here are some signs that you definitely have.

Off The Road Again
by Gina Valley

Having to unload our van after being cooped up in it driving home for 3 days is like being shot after you’ve been stabbed.  It just ain’t right.
