Hello, world!

I'm a father of one pre-schooler and one toddler. My stake in this site is to learn from you, and also to contribute as much as I can!

Based on my own childhood and parenthood, my specialties are (among others): twins, languages, and international aspects. For the record, I'm an identical twin and married to a fraternal twin. I speak 4 languages fluently and I've lived in 5 countries (Europe, Japan).

I enjoy using my experience to help others. That is why I am active at even more SE sites in the StackExchange network on topics that interest me.

valuable flair!

Outside of this site, I'm something of a Swiss army knife both professionally and in private, able to juggle a wild variety of things at once. I've worked in every kind of business that uses software. I'm also very good with tools, both IT and mechanic. Whether you need software design or assembling some IKEA furniture, I'm your man for the job. I'm generally soft-spoken but driven by clear principles.

To learn more about me, see my Google+ profile.

comment Do you use number of weeks or day of the month to determine an infant's birthday?
The leap day is pushed in between 23 and 24, so the leap day will be 24 and the previous 24 is now 25, the previous 25 is now 26, and so on. This is purely calendar-academic blah-blah though, in practice it's totally irrelevant.

comment When should a child stop using a pacifier, and how can I help with this transition?
Just be careful with those holes: you're in effect damaging the pacifier and the child's sharp teeth can make some bits come off. As with all equipment, parents should regularly inspect and replace damaged parts.

@Shauna, just now I googled to find a source and didn't even find any details in Wikipedia... but it does say that my knowledge seems to be out of date.

Yes, thanks for the proofreading. I fixed it. "Don't commute and type." :-)

Separate spaces for play and sleep is a luxury that some cannot afford, or don't want because the toys would clutter space needed for others (living room).
