10 Sustainable Products to Fight COVID-19

Now's a great time to work on consuming sustainable products to fight COVID-19. It's hard to draw a direct line between our instant-gratification/disposable society and the cause of COVID-19. (And yet, is it?) However, it's not hard to see that altering our sense of...

COVID-19 Film Festival: The Little Prince

4 Bears (out of 5) for COVID-19 Film Festival Selection: The Little Prince This addition to the COVID-19 Film Festival review is a little snobby, but in short - your soul will be filled, the kids might lose focus, but screw 'em - they have the TV on, don't they? And...

I have Questions about COVID-19 (Like Can We Say CV19?)

Like you, I lie awake at night and in the morning and have so many questions about COVID-19 and its effect on the world and on my kids. For starters - did I just make CV-19 a thing? It's very "2CV" (see below). Please say I did that. Will you join me? Heaven forbid I...

COVID-19 Family Film Festival: The Black Stallion

A 5-teddy bear review for "The Black Stallion". This is a must-watch for families. In brief: The Black Stallion is a high quality movie for the entire family...a Coppola film from the 70's that doesn't look or feel like that. It will enthrall your kids, provide the...

Causing Tears and Exploring Nudity in Art: Coronavirus Homeschooling Day 1

Yesterday for our household was about causing tears and exploring nudity in art. How’d that whole “Setting Expectations” thing go? Just another day in the COVID-19 life. Honestly? Not so bad. Or…the morning wasn’t so bad. Get up, go for a walk (thank goodness we...

Setting Expectations to Manage a Pandemic

Day 1 of 25 Home-Schooling and I'm barely surviving - but definitely setting expectations to manage our sanity. I mean - talk about interesting times we live in. Not sure it’s a full on Hamilton-ian “How Lucky We Are to be Alive, Right Now”, but hopefully soon we...

8 Ways Childhood in 2020 is not as Fun as the 80’s and 90’s

Childhood in 2020 is very different from the 80's and 90's, and that's all for the good. Safety and health are tantamount to parenting, as opposed to convenience and convenience back when we got to ride without seat belts munching a lunch of fruit roll-ups. But we...

Making Room for Women #metoo & Douchebaggery

It seems to me that society is slowly making room for women - and thank goodness for that. I’m late to the #MeToo conversation surrounding sexual harassment, but I’ve encountered fewer men weighing in than I’d expect. I know this is a time when men should often...

Kids Say No – and We Should Give Up

Kids say no - and it's a daily chore to choose that battle. But with "no", my youngest cracks me up. At 19 months (a little while ago, now), he said about two-dozen words, including “cha-cha” (chocolate), “eh-fant” (elephant) and “go-go” (yogurt). He calls...

about us

Gavin Lodge (Broadway actor and stylish dad) wanted a slick, masculine diaper bag when he was expecting his first son; a bag stating “I’m proud to be a new dad, but I haven’t lost my sense of style.” Such a bag didn’t exist. So he created it, himself.

After much trial and error, networking and coffee dates.

Often on playgrounds.
