His excitement has been one of the purest joys of the entire pregnancy. His excitement has been one of the purest joys of the entire pregnancy.

Making the case for wall-mounted TVs

I was 30 when I gave myself a concussion by pulling a TV onto my head. I’d be willing to bet that this doesn’t happen to many adults (unless they are generally clumsy humans, like me).

Doubtful Dad Dog Park

I love the dog park.

I love it because Halea, my dog (a very rare breed of mutt), loves it. She runs and plays and sniffs, and for 30 minutes every day, I feel like I'm actually giving her the attention she deserves.

I love it because of what I see when I'm there. All different kinds, shapes, and sizes of dogs playing together. They don't worry or judge or take things too seriously.
