comment Getting a 5-year-old up and going in the morning
The magic word is chocolate. I don't have to bring any, all I need to do is approach my daughter's bed and say chocolade. She is immediately awake...

comment How do I tell my parents that my wife and I are pregnant?
Me: Hey Mom, do you have anything planned for February yet? Mom (confused): Uhm, no, not really, it's still quite far in the future, isn't it? Me (smug): Yes, about nine months... Mom: ??? (Then the penny drops, and she suddenly needs a kleenex)

comment How to share embarassing story to another adult while your child is around?

comment Kids and Cell Phones? What limits should be set along with giving the first phone?
I think the most important boundary that should be set in this situation is that the mother is not allowed to text during meals!!! If an adult would do that in my house, I would get really angry.

comment 4 year old refuses to color
My 2 cents: 1) No reason to get worried, just because a child doesn't want to color. 2) No reason to let him get away with it, either.
