His and Her’s Nervous Breakdowns – How Not to Sleep Train a Baby

Here’s a term for you: “Sleep Regression” Ever heard of it? Neither had we, yet they happen at 4 months, 9 months, 12 months, 18 months, and apparently straight through to 2 years’ of age. Now you’ll have to pardon my french, but how the fuck was that not something that we would have read about at this point? I truly… Read more →

100 Days of Charlee

It has been far too long since I’ve posted a written entry – I’ll blame the holidays for that one! With that being said, we’ve had a great holiday season with Charlee! Here she is doing her best festive pose: December 26, also known as boxing day, came  and went and technically marked Charlee’s 100 days. In several Asian cultures, celebrating 100… Read more →

My Name is Dad, and I Survived a Trip with My Newborn

With Becca and I both off work (Becca for another nine months and me for another two), we thought it would be a great opportunity to take a trip with Charlee and get some of those first travels in while she’s still tiny and manageable. Sounds so easy when you say that out loud… ‘tiny and manageable’… sure. Well, suffice it… Read more →

It’s apparent, I’m a parent… but what type of parent am I?

With so much recently being written and discussed about parenting styles, I thought it would be interesting to summarize what I’ve read and get a sense of what my own personal style has been and get an inkling of what my style may become. On top of that, since this is a Dad blog, I’m looking at the fatherhood angle in particular, because I… Read more →

Charlee turns a month, Zaida turns 70, and a brave turkey gives its life

Not only did we celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday, but Friday was my father’s 70th birthday and today we celebrate Charlee turning one month old. This week was a biggie, so let’s take it from the top… Thanksgiving is technically a religious holiday in Canada; aligned with thanking God for a bountiful, Canadian harvest. I like to think of it as… Read more →
