    Post by Brad Murray Have you ever been completely embarrassed by your children’s behavior in public or in a setting with family or friends? No?  I’m convinced you are either lying or don’t yet have children.   Before I say more on this topic, our kids are very well behaved in public generally.  We have received numerous compliments while at restaurants and other public venues, and for that I am very thankful.  However, there are those rare times when everything falls apart. Before we had children, I was that guy that scoffed at parents whose children were rebellious in…

  • Smoking when Pregnant May Lead to Behavior Problems in Kids

    14 Aug 2014 | 6:07 am
    Most people know that smoking during pregnancy is a bad idea. The CDC warns that smoking during pregnancy can increase the likelihood of a miscarriage, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), and certain birth defects like a cleft lip or palate, and premature birth. New research, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Psychiatry in July, is adding “conduct disorders” to that list of health risks. Mothers who smoked during pregnancy were more likely to have children who had behavioral issues, the study found. “The evidence is emerging that smoking in…

    With high school and college beginning soon, here are some things for parents of older children to keep in mind from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Becoming a young adult is exciting, difficult, and scary for both parents and teens. It is a time of increasing independence and change, no matter what the situation. For example: Going to college Moving out Starting a job Staying at home Teach Independence Learning to be independent does not happen overnight. Just like getting a driver’s license, it occurs over time and in steps. Learner’s permit—learning new skills with supervision…

    Seven and a half years ago Keira’s triplet daughters were born at 25 weeks 5 days with a combined birth weight of just 4lbs 4oz. “This was my first and only pregnancy and I was terrified.  The first few weeks, of what would ultimately be 291 days in the NICU, were simply a blur as I dealt with the shock of such an early and traumatic delivery.  Two of my girls faired pretty well, all things considered.  My third seemed to bear the brunt of their extremely preterm birth.  No one expected her to live the first few days but weeks passed and she defied the odds, my worries switched from…

    Curriculum was ordered.  Their 1 day a week tutelage at The Master’s Study tuition was paid. Goals had been written. We were gearing up for our 3rd year of homeschool. UNTIL… About a week and a half ago when Brad took the boys to an indoor playground while I was fighting off a headache.  He ran into a contact who chatted with him briefly about Trader’s Point Christian Academy where his son attended, and Brad decided to stop by the school office just to explore it  for upcoming years if we decided not to continue homeschool at some point. He knew it would most likely be…

That wasn’t God’s plan for your life, and we’ve wrestled and submitted to His plan for you. However, a day hasn’t went by that we haven’t thought of you, and longed for the day when we will finally meet. The pain that we’ve walked through is an outpouring of our love for you. It’s a outcry to show that you were life, and you mattered. Each time I see a…

    I signed up to coach an Odyssey of the Mind team this year. This week the information guide for coaches came out and I went into a mini-panic thinking about how much time it will be. As I read on, the mini-panic subsided because this program teaches a lot of important critical thinking skills. We recently listened to the first Harry Potter (the narrator is amazing!) and we are waiting for the second one to come in from the library. Nate and Alex have asked constantly about it, so I explained we are on two waitlists - home library waitlist and beach library waitlist. I said we were number 10…

A little flashback. I first met Maria and her kids in person four years ago. Here were her kids then:And here they are now:Time is such a jerk.

These were neither hot nor spicy, btw.Jon had booked a centrally located hotel room so we were able to walk to a lot of sights. Trevi Fountain was really close to our hotel so we went straight there. What a sight!We had a good laugh about this over dinner. With no water in the fountain, does that mean we will never go back to Rome?? Next on our walking tour was the Pantheon, which was again, amazing. The only source of light is the hole in the top.The engineering involved to provide light for an entire building with this…

    It probably goes without saying that Back-to-School shopping can turn in to an arduous task with even one child in tow let alone the need to bring along 4 or 5.  In fact if I could try on the shoes and clothes for the kids, I'd take on the whole task solo just to spare everyone.  We did get virtually everything we needed in record time and with a nice savings at Gurnee Mills Mall this year, but still ... it's not the same as a pleasure trip of shopping with just the girls.  What did help greatly this year, was combining our big back to school shop with an overnight stay at nearby…

    Dad's Guide to Twins

  • Difference Between Parenting Twins and Just One Child

    Joe
    20 Aug 2014 | 8:10 am
    Today we’ve got a great question from the community of fathers of twins like you. The question is, “What can I expect to be new after twins are born that isn’t what I deal with having just one baby?” So this dad says that he’s helped to raise one child already, and now they’re expecting twins and wants to know in advance what is going to be different between twins and a singleton. It’s a very similar situation to what my wife and I had when our twins were born. When our girls were born, we already had two boys. So we had experienced singleton births…
  • Do Twins Develop Faster than Singletons?

    Joe
    18 Aug 2014 | 8:10 am
    We got a question about whether twins develop faster than a single child because they can feed off of each other’s progress and development. The answer here is not necessarily. They’re not necessarily going to develop faster than a singleton child would. Remember, of course, that each twin is unique and they won’t necessarily follow the same development course as each other. You’ll see that even though twins may be identical, they will pass their milestones at different times. Now of course your babies are going to go through several different milestones. It could be…
  • Can Twins Ignore Each Other’s Cries?

    Joe
    15 Aug 2014 | 8:10 am
    Today we’ve got a great question: “Will twins learn to ignore the other’s cries or will it be an automatic family cry fest?” As we were expecting twins, we had similar concerns, especially as they arrived and we realized that they do cry a lot as newborns. But we were surprised to find that our girls didn’t really wake each other up. It didn’t really bother them when the other was crying. Now there is an exception to that and that was when both of them were ready for feeding time. If one would wake up and be crying and the other would be hungry and wake up…
  • Favoritism When Raising Twins

    Joe
    13 Aug 2014 | 8:10 am
    The circumstances of having twins often highlights the differences between each child, and you might find yourself gravitating toward one child over the other. Favoritism when raising twins is natural, but doesn’t have to be a problem. Favoritism may be due to your twins’ behavior or physical needs. If one baby self-soothes or sleeps well while her sister needs constant care, you will find yourself spending more time with one over the other. Time spent with each twin may lead to favoritism of one twin over the other. This may be because you spend disproportionate time with one or…
  • Should you Rent a Stroller/Travel System or Just Buy It?

    Joe
    11 Aug 2014 | 8:10 am
    This question comes from The Dad’s Guide to Twins community. There, you can ask your questions about having to raise twins. This question says, “We found a place that offers travel systems and strollers for rent. My question is, is it worth buying a twin stroller if renting one works out to about a quarter of the price of a new one over a year? And how long did you actually use your twin stroller?” So this concept of renting baby gear for your twins is very interesting. As you noted, it can help stretch out your finances. If you are tight on cash and you don’t have the…

  • Twinfant Tuesday: Separation Decisions For Multiples

    mytwintopia
    19 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    “Are you going to separate them?” “When are you going to separate them?” Those are 2 questions that parents of multiples will have to answer over and over again as their multiples go through the different stages of childhood. The first time that question has to be answered is when you’re going home with twinfants in tow. Should they share a room? Should they share a bed? For me the answers were fairly straightforward. Should they share a room? Absolutely! No way I’m going to manage night feedings in 2 different locations. Should they share a bed? As long…

    SarahP
    13 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Just in case you are running out of ideas for your last month of summer, here are some things that have been a success at our house. 1. Walks. So simple and so easy. Great for when you just need to get out of the house and breath fresh air. You determine how long you’re out there and the pace. You can let the kids get out to explore along the route, or you can just let them observe from the stroller.2. Bubbles. My older son got a bubble machine for his third birthday and it has been a hit. I’m glad that we have it, because I kept getting light headed after bubble sessions. Now the…

    12 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Moving with a baby is tough. Moving with twins can be down right torture. Depending on their age, there is a pretty good chance they will be unpacking faster than you can pack. We just got settled in after moving to another state and it has been a whirlwind. A “I think Mommy’s lost her marbles” whirlwind. If you must face the feat, here are some of the things I did/learned in the process. WHEN TO PACK: I think it’s really hard to balance packing enough in advance that you’re not a complete wreck the night before you move, while not packing so early that you…

    Tonight was a tough night. It seemed like literally within 5 minutes, if it could have gone wrong, it did. The gate(s) that we have in the house for the boys, both broke. The boys were not listening very well tonight. I got a letter from the state showing my wife’s license plate where she was speeding in a work zone. More money down the drain. The nanny made a few comments that I wasn’t very pleased with. The boys would not sit still to eat dinner, instead they wanted to run and play. The boys did not want to pick up their toys, so I have to do that now. Baby B decided to pee on…

    Ferguson, Missouri have you ever heard of it? Neither had most until last week. That is until Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer. Those are the facts as I have read them that are undisputed. I say that, because everything after that is in question. Here is another fact, there are only a few people that in fact know the truth, the police officer and Michael Brown. Pretty much everything else is hearsay and speculator. Since the news broke about the shooting, a lot of things have happened: Outside organizations have gotten involved to voice their concern and also in my…

    This past Thursday afternoon I took the plundge and had the Baloon Sinoplasty and Turbinate Reduction surgeries. For 30+ years, I have had problems with sinus infections and allergies. The last straw was last month when I met with my ENT and we discussed that 3 sinus infections was two much and that it was time for surgery. The he surgery was a breeze. The numbing process took longer than the actual procedure. And yes, I was awake for the entire thing, which made it even more interesting. I have a high threshold for pain, but this was really easy. Because there was bleeding, they did bandage…

    I don’t have many memories of one of my grandfathers, but one memory that I do have is that when I would see him, we would get in the car, just he and I and we would go and get Strawberry Ice Cream. How I can remember this, I’m not really sure, especially considering the fact that my Grandfather died when I was in 1st grade. I remember a lot about the day that he died. I remember being pulled from class and talk with the principal. I remember my mother crying and we left school early that day. I remember asking my mom if my Grandfather was going to buy me Strawberry Ice Cream that…

    We all go through things in life, mostly good, but there are times where it isn’t so good. Over the last several weeks, I’ve had a chance to reflect on my childhood, as I want to avoid mistakes and things that my parents made with me. And I kept coming back to one thing, “It’s Not Your Fault”. And with the passing of Robin Williams yesterday, I was reminded of this scene. It took me back to a place a few years ago that I was talking with a friend and I mentioned how this scene resonated with me, because I took a lot of my parents problems on my shoulders.  And…
