Buying an Xbox Kinect

Sat, 18 Dec 2010 04:56:47 +0000

This is just a quick note to say that I’ve ordered an Xbox Kinect as a Christmas gift for the kids… Or maybe it was for me? I guess time will tell. 🙂 After reading some reviews, I’ve been thinking that a Kinect would make a cool gift, but I’m not crazy about getting up […]



Kids Not Learning Cursive in Schools

Fri, 19 Nov 2010 03:00:01 +0000

Guess what? Sometime between Son #2 and Son #3 hitting third grade, our local school district decided to stop teaching cursive. While they’ll still learn to sign their names, they won’t learn to read or write in cursive. I’m not sure why, but this really bothers. Honestly, I can’t remember the last time I chose […]



How to Treat a MRSA Skin Infection

Fri, 03 Sep 2010 02:38:25 +0000

Earlier this week, we took our eight year old son in to see the doctor. He had what can only be described as a boil on his left forearm, and it was clearly infected. We’ve dealt with our fair share of things like impetigo in the past, and this was clearly different. As soon as […]



Where to Buy Silly Bandz?

Mon, 12 Jul 2010 20:53:44 +0000

On the off chance that you haven’t heard, Silly Bandz are all the rage with kids these days. We were actually first introduced to the Silly Bandz craze by our preschool and 2nd grade sons this past school year, and they’ve since swept the nation. While our kids’ obsession has cooled off a bit this […]



School Start Times: Later is Better for Teens

Wed, 07 Jul 2010 22:09:54 +0000

I just ran across an interesting article about school start times. This isn’t particularly surprising but, according to a recent study, delaying the start of school by as little as half an hour would significantly benefit teens. During a two month trial in Newport, Rhode Island, researchers found that delaying the start of school from […]



Intuniv Update and a Switch to Lexapro

Fri, 26 Mar 2010 17:44:53 +0000

I’ve been meaning to write this for awhile, but just haven’t been able to find the time. As I’ve previously noted, our twelve year old started taking Intuniv (guanfacine) to treat his nervous tics, as well as to improve his impulse control and reduce his aggression. The good news is that his tics became much […]



Treating Impetigo That Won’t Go Away

Sun, 14 Feb 2010 04:05:38 +0000

Our five year old son has been battling impetigo for the past couple of months. We’ve had it on the run several times, and actually thought it was completely gone at one point, but it’s kept coming back. Admittedly, a part of the problem was inconsistency on our part when treating the problem early on. […]



The Best Time of Day to Take Intuniv

Wed, 10 Feb 2010 04:34:20 +0000

A couple of week ago, I noted that our son had started taking Intuniv to treat his nervous tics. He started out with a 1mg dose, increased to 2mg after a week, and then to 3mg a week later. Easing patients onto Intuniv in this fashion is the standard approach. Unfortunately, shortly after he started […]



Intuniv for Treating Tics and Twitches

Fri, 29 Jan 2010 04:30:46 +0000

As I’ve noted in the past, our oldest son has a history of tics and twitches. In the past, these have come and gone, often associated with stressful periods in our lives, and never lasting more than a few months. This past fall, our son (eleven years old at the time) started middle school, and […]



Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 Digital Camera Review

Sun, 01 Nov 2009 20:19:41 +0000

We just picked up a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 digital camera for my lovely and talented wife. This new camera is a replacement of her old Casio Exilim EX-S600, which has been acting up over the past few months and appears to have ultimately died after less than three years of service. Panasonic Lumix ZS3 review […]
