Chill Out

This post was featured on Thank you Stephanie Lowry for the support. Fathers get stereotyped most of the time because of a role that has been pushed on us. When the majority of the world thinks of what that role looks like it is very boxed in. I can sum it up in one... Continue Reading →

Dad Brain. Dude Brain?

My wife is half way across the globe for work for a week an a half.  Singapore to be exact. That's a 13 hour time difference. That also means when we are going to bed, she is waking up, and vice versa.  On top of that, it's summer so both boys are here all day with me.... Continue Reading →

Life After Birth.

On June 23rd 2000 an blah, blah, blah, one of my favorite nephews was born to my sister.  I recall my sister getting "What to expect when you're expecting" as most first time mothers do. It is the supposable bible of childbirth. I recall reading trough it out of teenaged curiosity. I had already taken... Continue Reading →

Open Letter to Parents #1

For the past few days it has been challenging for me to write. It's not a writers block thing or anything of that nature. The house hold has been in massive flux. The world for our boys is changing around us, work travel is returning, and the heat is on in Texas as summer is... Continue Reading →

Even when we retreat to the country with family we build... Continue Reading →

Happy Mothers Day!

Cards, candy, flowers, and jewelry. The foundation brick and mortar for mother's day gifts. It dwarfs Father's Day, Valentine’s Day, and any personal relationship themed holiday besides your wedding anniversary. Mothers get the grunt work. They sacrifice their bodies for a year. Not 9 months, because even after the baby is in the world they... Continue Reading →

Hey Fart Head!

In our home filled with boys you better get used to farts, burps, high pitched screams, and snot rockets. As dad I blame a lot of farts on everyone, the baby included. No one is safe. A while back I was putting my oldest to bed after a night filled with wrestling. Needless to say he was not... Continue Reading →

The Talk.

    When do you have the talk? Do you wait till it happens or becomes the elephant in the room? How do you start it? What are the right words to even use?  I want my boys to be seen as boys and grow into respectable men. We live in a world full of... Continue Reading →

The Meaning of Life

Lots of people often question what the meaning of life is. It has been the subject of many speeches and lectures. It has confounded explorers and fueled religious beliefs. I even asked myself years ago this very question. For what seems like a very difficult question renders itself to a simple answer. The secret to... Continue Reading →
