So What is Co-Parenting?
And last week two more things happened: my human sister, Alyssa, graduated from college, and, just three days later, she got the job she wanted as a news reporter for the TV station where she did her internship. Next week she’ll be starting her new job and moving into a new house with her boyfriend. I didn’t get to go to graduation–they have some silly “No Dogs Allowed” rule, but I did hear Ron and Lorie talk about something called “Co-Parenting.
” Apparently, this is a thing some couples do after they’ve gotten divorced–they share responsibility for their children, living in nearby locations and sometimes even in the same house.
This approach is supposed to provide more stability for the kids and help them adjust to the challenges that a divorce situation can bring. Since I didn’t think Ron and Lorie were getting divorced, I kind of eavesdropped on their conversation with Alyssa. And I liked what I heard! Because the landscaping and lawn maintenance are taken care of at the new house, Ron and Lorie are free totravel more frequently...and on very short notice.
The only problem is, well, me. That’s because they have to arrange for the neighbors to watch me. But now it looks like I’m going to be spending part of my time with Ron and Lorie, and part of my time at Alyssa’s new house! This is perfect, because I really like my sister. She plays with me all the time; she takes me on long walks, and, best of all, she lets me sleep in her bed–something Ron and Lorie never let me do. This isn’t a typical situation, but it’s one that’s going to work out well for all of us. Can you find any new ways of looking at things that might make your life a bit more enjoyable.
I have heard that WordPress is a great design software platform to use for setting up my website. Can you tell me if that is true and
how I need to use that on my site? When we got that question, I referred it to Kyle Smith, who is our website developer and who collaborates with us with our “Done for You” clients. Here is what he had to say: WordPress is currently the number one most widely used web design software in the United States with about 2.4 million sites. The user interface is brilliant. It allows for easy integration of plugins, which saves programmers time and allows for more attention to the appearance of the site. WordPress also makes it easy to upload custom themes, post types, and widgets. This provides the proper organization required to handle a large scale content management system. For example, imagine if you were a realestate company in need of all of the house listings from a certain area (we’ll say Gotham), and you wanted them to appear separate from all of the homes
in Wayne’s Manor. By creating custom post types, it allows you to store them, filter them, and display them based on the necessary location. WordPress allows for great customizing, phenomenal flexibility, and beautiful content. It’s perfect for almost any small business or content driven site.
