I’ll never be a parenting expert, but there’s one thing that I’m really good at: getting Maisa to go to sleep.
Jill calls me “The Sleep Whisperer” because of my ability to coax a nap out of Maisa.
There’s no big secret to my success. I simply tell her it’s time for “night-night” and lay her gently into her crib.
Maisa must know that Daddy means business, because she’s usually asleep within a minute.
Our good friends Kevin and Sheila brought pizza over to the house last night. Jill made a dessert.
We are all fans of the show “Lost,” so we spent part of the evening watching this week’s offering (all in all, not a bad episode). Then we watched more Olympics coverage than I had seen in the previous two weeks combined.
We had a very nice visit and hope to see them again soon.
I discovered National Public Radio recently.
OK, that’s not entirely accurate. I’ve known about NPR for years, but never bothered to tune in. The last few weeks I’ve been listening to the central Iowa feed (101.7 FM) and have found the programming to be quite enjoyable.
Talk radio is usually too abrasive for me. And I’m very picky about the music I’ll listen to. So NPR is almost perfect for me. It’s entertaining, diverse, informative and intelligent.
