I grew up watching shows like Saved By The Bell, Star Trek: TNG and Godzilla among others. Thanks to Netflix I can rewatch most of it all over again!
Our floors have never looked so good. Seriously. The scheduling thing is a life saver. Life is busy and always full of things to do. The iRobot Roomba 870 has been able to take care of our floors when we can’t take care of them ourselves. Its available for purchase at Best Buy right now. Now that we have one in our home I can’t imagine ever giving it up.
I grew up watching Star Trek reruns on TV and watched the movies on repeat through elementary, middle and high school. Spock was an iconic character from the future brought to life in only the way Leonard Nimoy could have done. I had wanted to meet him in person, but sadly was never afforded the chance. The way I view the world was largely shaped by this practical and logical (sometimes even playful) character in a fictitious science fiction universe. I’m sad to see him gone.
I was clueless when I first became a dad. My childcare experience consisted of knowing that dropping a baby is bad and how to make peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. The first diaper I ever changed was Mr. Dude’s on the day he was born. I’d “watched” my nephews once or twice, but never for over an hour and always with the assistance of a television.
I remember watching my son sleep when he was a newborn. Those moments were precious and often happened only in the afternoon in the early days of my fatherhood. Those sleepless nights were full of frustration, exhaustion and time that seemed to slow to a crawl. In a way and for some odd reason I miss it a little.
Here are a few things I found to help our fussy little guy calm down when he wasn’t an adorable sleeping baby.
