Why is my baby in daycare always getting sick?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Family, Health, Parenting

Why is my baby in daycare always getting sick? It isn’t just you and your kids, since starting daycare this year our boys seem to come down with a new illness every week. For the first 6 months of their lives, they barely had the sniffles. Ok well except for the hospital trip and our NICU stay. Since starting this year though, we’ve gone through a carousel of snot, sneezing, coughing, and messy diapers on […]

You’re going to love Lake Bled Don’t lose your head in Bled. It’s basically the Slovenian version of “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” Ok, I may have made this saying up, but that doesn’t make it any less true. Bled, a quiet lakeside resort town in the incredibly beautiful Slovenian countryside might make you start reconsidering things and questioning basic things. Things like quitting and moving to Lake Bled to start a hot […]

The perfect beer tour in the Finger Lakes It can take a while to realize and admit that you aren’t as young as you used to be. For us, having twins was a wake up call that we needed to start doing things a bit differently. Throw in a few rough days after relatively tame nights of drinks, and we knew we needed to do things differently. To celebrate a bachelor and bachelorette party with […]

Hopefully it would never have a bug like HAL did where he killed the occupants […]

The best of Europe in Zagreb, Croatia

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Beer, Croatia, Food, Travel

The capital of Croatia, Zagreb, is more than a little different from much of the rest of the country. A country known for seaside towns, medieval walled towns, and hilltop towns, Zagreb is much more of a European capital city with a cosmopolitan, culturally diverse, university town feeling than the seaside towns steeped in tradition. That’s not to say Zagreb doesn’t have fascinating history, it surely does. But rather than fishing boats, expect trolleys and […]

You are keeping your kids up too late

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Family, Health, Parenting

You are keeping your kids up too late As a father of twins, on rare occasions I make it out of the house at night after putting the twins to bed. At these times, I am shocked by the number of infants and toddlers I see out after 8:00 at night. These poor kids often appear cranky or irritable, and no wonder. They are not getting enough sleep at night or stretching too long between […]

This is my island in the sun. Singapore, island of legends, wealth, and modernism. The island where the jungle rises to meet the sea. Where the hot humid air never cools nor does the food. This small island nation at the tip of Malaysia is more of a financial center then tourist destination, but that may change soon as tourists discover all this playground has to offer.   Foodies will find Singapore a heaven on […]
