    Music was a big part of my childhood. I remember distinctly trying (and failing) to sing the words to Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” at four years old. I remember evenings filled with the sounds of Jackson Browne, Elton John, Genesis, Asia, Boston, James Taylor, Carole King, and other music that makes me sound really old. I didn’t realize it until later, but the music I listened to as a kid was totally undergirded by the sound inventions of the Beatles.

    A few years ago, my sweet little daughter was born (alongside her fantastic twin brother). It was a moment I’d dreamed about for years, and as I lavished upon my brand new little girl her very first snuggles, I wondered what mark she’d leave on the world. Would she be an astronaut? A surgeon? A teacher? A full-time mother? An artist? A construction worker? An architect? A librarian? A collector? A spender? A saver?

    Greeting, parents and caregivers of young children! It’s Labor Day! Without consulting a smartphone (or smartfriend), do you have any idea why we celebrate this holiday? While its merits for celebration are numerous, I didn’t have a clue without first doing a little research. It makes sense now, but I’ll admit that I was stymied for the first 30 years of my life. Time off from work? I’ll take it! Family and friends?

    Greetings parents and caregivers of young children! My son has always been a fan of numbers and letters. In fact, he named his cat Numbers and Letters when he was three. One of my most cherished memories (which I captured on my phone and listen to every once in awhile when I’m feeling nostalgic) includes my then-two-year old son sleepily reciting his ABCs and 123s while falling asleep.
