Wondering how our software development process works? Take a look!

Find me on twitter, or read my blog. Don't say I didn't warn you because I totally did.

However, I no longer work at Stack Exchange, Inc. I'll miss you all. Well, some of you, anyway. :)

per pediatrician recommendation, try to avoid TV until the age of two, or close to it, if possible: parenting.stackexchange.com/questions/3/…

comment When your child says something embarrassing in public… how do you deal with it?
if it is "say it to me, the parent, first" that is better, I mildly object to "whisper it to me, the parent, first" just on the basis of encouraging (even accidentally) talking behind people's backs, etc.

comment When your child says something embarrassing in public… how do you deal with it?
hmm, I'd be hesitant to advise saying things secretly about others as a normal conversation pattern.. more like, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all? (once they can distinguish between the two, of course)

everyone knows she can't be a witch unless you put her in water and she floats to the top..

comment What is the impact on kids of having two working parents?
yeah, we love our family daycare, and I feel our son is learning a ton there from the other kids of various ages (mostly older, as far as learning goes, but I suppose he is teaching the younger kids too) but ... welcome to the world of being constantly sick. It's inevitable. Imagine how people who work at hospitals or schools feel! :P
