Joe Jonas gets a new ride

My thirteen-year-old niece won't admit to liking their music, but she will say she's going to marry a Jonas brother. Or maybe all of them. I'm not really sure because she was gushing so much when she spoke of them that it was hard to understand her....

The Leap Family

I have a friend who was born on Leap Day. I'd guess she turned ten or eleven yesterday. She is about the coolest person I know -- in fact, her nickname is "too cool". She and her husband own a whole stable full of motorcycles, are building their own...

Baby's first birthday do's and don'ts?

So Mr. Pickles is fast approaching his one year mile marker. At the end of January I will have two months to put together something, if anything, to celebrate the day he joined us and made my life the happy place it is today. As he nears...

Are birth days more telling than we think?

When I was first given my son's due date, two things sprung immediately to mind: 1) I am going to be ginormous and sweating and hulk-sized, with grapefruit-sized ankles, all summer long. 2) My son is going to be a Leo. Oh no. My Dad is a Leo,...

Couple has three kids -- all born on Oct 2nd

Three kids, one birthday -- must be triplets, right? Not in the Cotton house. Jenna and William's first two children were born on October 2, 2003 and October 2, 2006 -- which was already a little odd. However, it gets ever weirder, as the couple's...

Celebrating birthdays at school

Ellie's 7th birthday falls on a school day this year. In the past, she attended a small private school where bringing treats to share with the class was not only allowed, it was expected. But now that she is public school, the rules have changed and...

Eight-year-old gives birthday presents to slain deputy

Sgt. Chris Reyka, an 18-year veteran of the Broward sheriff's department in Florida and father of four, was shot and killed while investigating a suspicious vehicle last August. His killers are still at large. His family, meanwhile, are without their...

Gift guide by the ages: Newborn/baby shower

Birthdays. Everybody has one. They also have holidays and all sorts of special occasions where it seems a gift is needed. If you're anything like me, it is easy to get overwhelmed and just want to run out and get a gift card. While I certainly like...

ParentDish Sleepover for Sunday, June 10, 2007

Yesterday, we had a party for Sara's third birthday (which isn't actually until the end of the month.) Although it was a lot of work to prepare for it, it was pretty successful and everyone had a good time. While recovering from that experience, I...

ParentDish Feature: All in the House, bridging generational fashion gaps

Recently my older son, Loren, and I attended a benefit dinner together. It was for the local hospice where my father was a board member. He and my mother used to attend the annual dinner which includes a gondola ride to a mountain top dinner, a...

What do you want for your birthday?

It was my birthday yesterday. I asked my husband (I am so not kidding) for a new vacuum cleaner. We have a Hoover that I hate. Every time I start using it, the belt slips off the rollers and it starts spewing dust. So, I have to go and find the...

Happy birthday to my baby boy!

A year ago today, I was in the hospital, in labor with my second child. It came as quite a shock to me because he was two weeks early and, honestly, I expected to go late like I did with my first. While his labor was actually longer than the labor...
