Fighting can be done right, wrong, and all shades in between. We are imperfect people, living together, managing each others expectations.

Four Things Every Future Father Should Know

The fear of the unexpected is one of the hardest things about being a new parent. There are books, videos, classes, and fads for every single stage of parenthood, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. It seems as though there is an infinite amount of knowledge on how…

Does Alone Always Mean Lonely?

Today I decided to attend our monthly art night solo. Everyone else was busy, but I still really wanted to go. This is pretty out of character for me because I never go anywhere alone. I am not one of those people who eat at restaurants or attend movies as…

The Power of the Belly

Yev has a super power that most of the Pinchuk men possess. They have this incredible ability to put babies to sleep, effortlessly. When I hand baby V to Yev to hold, I often have to tell him, “Don’t let her fall asleep. It’s not the right time.” And almost…
