Despite fighting a life-long recurrence of eczema on his left pointer finger, Seth hasn't let it stop him from acting in various commercials and television shows while continuously writing web sketches and TV pilots his agent refers to as "sometimes funny." He's sold a couple of shows, spends an inordinate amount of time in coffee shops, and when he remembers, he both feeds and clothes his children.

(1) Comments | Posted March 23, 2015 | 12:59 AM

There are parents who hover over their kids like a helicopter. And there are parents who generally leave their kids to their own devices. Both are insistent that their way is the right way. I'm not here to judge other parenting styles, though I assume, as is often the case,...

During stressful times in my marriage, I have fleeting thoughts about life on the other side. I'm not alone. I see it in my wife's eyes, as well. We will be heading out on a weekend morning, late for one thing or another, a morning that began at 3 a.m....

Jeden Morgen stellt meine vierjährige Tochter Sydney einen Stuhl vor den Kleiderschrank und nimmt ein Kleidchen von der Stange.

Mon fils porte des robes, et ça ne me dérange pas

Tous les matins ma fille de quatre ans, Sydney, met une chaise devant son placard et choisit une robe. J'essaie de lui faire prendre d'autres directions --«Pourquoi tu ne porterais pas un short aujourd'hui?»--mais Sydney est têtue. Et je pense qu'elle a droit à la liberté de choisir ce qu'elle...

Every morning my four-year-old daughter, Sydney, drags a chair into her closet and plucks a dress off of the rack. I try to lean her in other directions --"Why don't we try shorts today?"--but Sydney's stubborn. And I think she deserves the freedom to choose what she wants to wear....
