Preserving Their Childhood – Dad and Buried – Parents Article

Last night, after we’d gotten the kids to bed, Mom and Buried and I sat down to talk. It was the end of a long day and we had things to discuss. Adult things. We were in the middle of it when suddenly – it’s always suddenly – Detective Munch ran out of his bedroom to ask some innocuous question, for probably the 100th time that day. And I lost my temper. My response was completely disproportionate to whatever his supposed offense…

Happily Stranded on Pip’s Island – Parents Article

Entertaining your kids isn’t easy. Ask any parent getting barraged with “I’m bored!” two days after Christmas. Even here in New York City, where there are a hundred activities, events, outings, and experiences at every turn, kids can be hard to please. My 9-year-old likes going to movies and the occasional play, but he doesn’t really like to participate or join things. My almost 4-year-old wants to interact and engage with everyone and anything, which makes movies and plays impossible.…

ADHD and Me – Dad and Buried – Parents Article

Last year, I shared a post about my son’s ADHD diagnosis, and the relief it brought. Finally, we had confirmation that our 9yo wasn’t intentionally ignoring us, willfully misbehaving, or somehow a bad kid. His brain is just wired differently, and with his diagnosis, we’ve been able to view things from a different perspective; hopefully, a more patient and understanding one. Of course, understanding the big picture is one thing and managing my everyday reactions to his behavior is another.…

The Vaccination Controversy! – Dad and Buried – Parents Article

If you’ve been listening to my podcast or following me on Instagram, you might know that we’ve been teasing doing a “controversial” episode. In an effort to get people to rate us on Apple Podcasts (PLEASE GO RATE US ON APPLE PODCASTS!), I swore that when we hit 100 ratings, we’d let listeners choose a controversial parenting topic for us to cover. Well, we hit 100. And I let the listeners choose. And the listeners chose vaccinations. I’m not shocked.…

The Childcare Conundrum – Dad and Buried – Parents Article

This post originally appeared on my Facebook page back in August. If you’ve already read it, skip to the end for new evelopments. I had a job interview today. And I had to bring my toddler along. Just kidding. Mostly. I didn’t have to bring him to the actual interview, but I did have to bring him into Manhattan to drop him off at Mom and Buried’s office. Because childcare is expensive. And I’m not working. (Hence the interview.) Every…

Spread Too Thin – Dad and Buried – Parents Article

Today, instead of putting my son on the bus and going straight to work, I took him to school so I could visit his class for “First Fridays.” First Fridays are a monthly occurrence on which parents are allowed – and encouraged – drop in on school and find out what our kids are working on. Afterwards, on the train – in the middle of wondering WTF common core is all about – I suddenly realized I’d completely forgotten to…

Parenting with Multiple Sclerosis – Dad and Buried – Parents Article

*My wife, aka Mom and Buried, originally wrote this piece for Today.com* Some moments are seared onto your mind. For me, one of those was an otherwise normal day as a new mom to a beautiful four-month old little boy: the day that I got a call from my neurologist diagnosing me with multiple sclerosis. When the call came, though I was already exhausted and stretched too thin as a new mom, I felt a wave of relief. Finally, I…
