From the Archives: My Daughter The Teacher
August 31, 2012 10:49 PM by Devon Alley
In this entry from the archives, I forget it is election day and have to bring my daughter to class with me, where she pretty much takes over and pretends to be the teacher. November 2nd, 2004: So. I didn't actually think about the fact that the public Read More...
She's A Little Rock Star
August 30, 2012 1:31 PM by Devon Alley
I know that A. really enjoys singing. She wanted to sing in the talent show last year, but the acts were cut due to time constraints. If you're upstairs while she's on the computer, her voice fills the house. The issue is that she generally sings the Read More...

What's A Facebook Party, Anyway?
August 22, 2012 7:38 PM by Devon Alley
Last night, I posted the following tweet: "Watching my daughter have a 'Facebook Birthday Party' is one of the most fascinating anthropological activities I've ever engaged in." This tweet inspired a flurry of replies, most of them along the lines of Read More...
Thirteen Years.
August 21, 2012 10:42 PM by Devon Alley
Today is my daughter's 13th birthday. It's weird. I listen to other parents talk about how their babies are growing up, and I give lip service to the same: "Oh, I can't believe how much time has passed!" or "I can't believe she's already 13!" And I suppose Read More...
