A dad's "fat" talk, hacks for working parents, and more

The holiday shopping season horses are off and running, aren't they? It was disconcerting to see the Halloween store decor change overnight to full-on Christmas.

I'm reminding myself that I get to choose how to react, what to filter, and where I decide to focus my attention. Right now my focus is on the Fall-to-Winter transition, always bittersweet in Portland, especially now that there are so few hours of sunlight.

Here are a few links I enjoyed this week. Hope you do, too.


Got a link you think is hack-worthy? The best way to let me know is on Twitter (@parenthacks) or Facebook.
