John headshot Nov 2014Greetings dear readers from high above…eh…North Carolina? I’m flying home from our nation’s capital, having spent the better part of yesterday with some brave men and women at Fort Belvoir. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m in the midst of a rather intense travel schedule, but I do still have time to read and discover things online.

Leo Babauta has been a father for more than two decades. In that amount of time, he’s managed to boil down the essence of fatherhood into six simple lessons. It may not be as simple as that, but this is worthwhile advice to any father.

I’ve linked before to an article comparing parenting a toddler to being a secret agent spy. Well, here’s one explaining how you can successfully parent children of any age like an FBI agent.

Finally, I dare you to try not smiling just a little bit when you watch these babies sneeze. I can’t figure out why, but it’s mesmerizing.

Okay, that’s it for me. Let me know if I missed anything.
