I dont have a problem being naked around my kids. it’s not something I set out to do, but if it happens, it happens. We play Naked Baby, Naked Daddy, and it’s mostly me just being silly.

You don’t need to breast feed in line at Tim Horton’s. One mom thought she would. The store asked her to stop. Then it hit the fan. Sigh. Why can’t we get along?

When it comes to talking to your kids about war, there’s no easy way to do it. War is glamourized, and yet it is ugly. Remembrance Day makes it real when I take the boys to the cenotaph and talk about the members of our family that have fought. It’s a time for silent reflection and a vow of never again.
Help me decide which way is up here. We went to a party where the kids went wild. My wife and I looked at each other wondering if we were the uptight parent or if the other kids were just out of control.
There is a rainbow crosswalk in Vancouver that arrived quite suddenly, and with it an instant tourist attraction. I stopped to show it to my son and his reaction to this monument of pride and tolerance gives hope that homophobia will soon be gone.
