TO's ideas about life and death are shaped quite a bit by the things he sees online. And since he sees more grown- up content these days vis-a-vis Mickey Mouse Club House, Noddy et al, death is portrayed more in the Occidental way than it is the Oriental or Indian way. He's seen characters who... Continue Reading →
Red and I decided that reducing the amount of time TO spends on digital media is the best thing for him and us...now and long-term. And in order to do that, we need to switch off (literally and figuratively) from the stuff we're doing and spend time with him; no matter what. And so we... Continue Reading →
Let it be noted that if I had to do anything amounting to slightly strenuous physical activity vs being bodily harmed, bodily harm would rule the roost.

Getting to and into bed turns into an obstacle course full of adventure in the dark! So what else is new?
It's only 3 inches long but my big toe did come in contact with its great gaping maws...and this isn't the first time there was a "dangerous" animal lurking where it shouldn't have been.
