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.

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

comment What should I do when my toddler climbs out of her crib at night to play?
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).

:-) you posted this shortly before I posted my similar answer. +1 for learning which sounds are good and which should alert you. And for napping whenever possible.

+1 for MythBusters! They make a point of warning against dangerous stuff, and they even explain the physics/concepts behind what's going on. Educating AND fun!

Very good point about wanting to make eye contact. I've just got one nit to pick: infants shouldn't "sit up" until they can do so on their own, because their spine is not fully developed before then. But there are other comfortable positions.
