    Losing My Kid

    Although misplacing my nine-year-old son has become a commonplace experience, it is nonetheless still unsettling.

    The first time, he was eighteen months old, in the yard playing one moment, and nowhere the next. I found him in the dark garage — the second time I looked — shuffling amidst the dangerous-to-a-toddler bikes, laundry detergent, old paint.

    Now he’s nine, and when he is “lost” it’s usually because he is trying to be. READ MORE

    What To Expect [When You Go To A House With Young Kids]

They won’t get the fact that in any given moment a fresh disaster is about to unload on my carpet. Stains, huge primary-colored toys, and sticky countertops are a daily fixture of my life now; I don’t see that changing anytime soon. READ MORE
