Tonight we head to Providence Hospital to begin the induction that, hopefully, will result in Malcolm Tennant making his first live appearance outside Sara's belly. Needless to say, I'm nervous as heck, but before we head to the hospital I wanted to get some words on video (however awkwardly) that have been beating around inside … Continue reading Malcolm Tennant Cometh
Sometimes it's easy to forget that just as there are stereotypes that (some) men impose on women, and criticisms that should never be leveled because they are sexist, the pendulum swings both ways and it is perhaps most evident in the area of parenting.

Thanks to Sara raiding my Amazon wish lists, these 4 … Continue reading Holiday Reading List 2012 / 2013
