I turn 40 this year. According to social norms, this is supposed to be a huge milestone. I mean, just google “Turning 40” and you get a whole lot of related posts.

Some of the best conversations we have with the kids are in the car. Yup, and this is not necessarily long car trips. We just had an interesting one with the kids in a short trip to the shops. Out of the blue, Nathan decided to tell us what he wants to be when he…
