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 are keeping your kids up too late

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.

I wasn’t alone in my venture; I ran into a few groups of hikers and a few fellow runners too. There’s […]

Hygge is the comfort you feel in a favorite worn in pair of pajamas […]

My baby stopped breathing

At a month old, I thought I pretty much had life with the twins figured out. We still weren’t getting more than four hours of sleep at any…
