Valley of the Dolls
<em>(This Dave Barry column was originally published June 10, 2001.)</em><br />What I do, first thing every morning, is play with dolls. The dolls belong to my 15-month-old daughter, Sophie, who likes to start the day by giving her dolls a toy bottle. She has a strong nurturing instinct, although it is not matched by her hand-eye coordination, so often she sticks the bottle into a doll's eye. The dolls don't mind.

Here’s an excerpt from ‘You Can Date Boys When You’re Forty: Dave Barry on Parenting and Other Topics He Knows Very Little About,’ which will be published on Tuesday. Look for more in Sunday and Tuesday’s Tropical Life sections.
Looking for Mr. Goodfish
<em>(This Dave Barry column was originally published July 11, 2004.)</em><br />Pets are good, because they teach children important lessons about life, the main one being that, sooner or later, life kicks the bucket.
So my wife and I went to this meeting at our daughter's preschool. The purpose was to give us helpful information about our kindergarten options.
Let me just say, as a parent: AIEEEEEEEEEEE.
