Hey, Where Did the Summer Go?

I'm not the biggest fan of the summer. I don't like being covered in sweat when I get to work. I don't like being devoured by evil hungry mosquitoes. And I despise flying beetles sneaking into my home getting caught in my ceiling fan's down draft and landing in my sleeping face. I also don't [...]

AND SO IT BEGINS AGAIN… THE HOLIDAYS!

We had fun yesterday on Halloween with Dev. He dressed up as Michael Jackson from "Beat It Live in Bucharest," showed some of his moves to strangers, then asked them for candy. But, let's be real, Halloween is not a holiday. However it's does seem to serve as the gateway to the real holiday season. [...]

DO WE ALL HATE PARENTING?

Probably not. But we totally do have rough moments that often wipe away the most recent perfect moment in a heart beat. Definitely a topic worth talking about. And writing about. It was Jennifer Senior's New York Magazine article that started it all. Shout out to Jason, Paul, and Jennifer who along with me had [...]

OLD SOULS

The other day I saw Taylor Momsen on East 67th Street in Manhattan. She was with two rocker looking dudes who were probably in her band. She had on garters and stockings, a pair of eight foot heels and was smoking. She's 16. My first instinct was "where are her parents?" I would like to [...]

HOLIDAY HESITATION

Usually around this time of the year I am excited about rolling into the fun of the fall, and the awesomeness of the Holiday Season in NYC. We already purchased Dev's Halloween costume, and we're trying to decide on which orchard we will be picking apples and pumpkins at this year. Fall really is [...]

THE BLACK DADDY LIST: IT’S ALL GOOD

For 2009 I'm taking a break from "The Black [Dad] List," mainly because it's too negative. I haven't totally abandoned the idea of negativity because I'm human and I have my moments, but I'd like to try to take positivity to a whole "nuva leva" this year. I'm enjoying the projects that I'm working on [...]

HIGHER BUS FARES FOR THIS?

Today the boy and I went on a little outing to the bookstore. I was in the mood for some serious escapism in the form of classic Mr. King and Mr. Kellerman. Sometimes after reading a slave narrative or the life of Medgar Evers you just need something a lot less heavy. My son, a [...]
