As a dad, there’s nothing better than hearing from other people who can empathize about or articulate some truth from the wild world of parenting.

(Bed)Time is a Flat Circle
And for my next magic trick I'll turn my children into starving, dehydrated philosophers who need to pee a lot, by simply using two magical words, "It's bedtime."

Here Comes the Sun
As my kid gets older he goes to bed later, which means he hangs out longer, which means *I* have to stay up later to get my alone time, which means by the time he’s 13, I’ll be going to bed at sunrise.
