Like vs Love

I don't like my kids. I love them. Like and love. These get mixed and mashed up so much. We all like stuff. Our kids like stuff. We even like our kids. Fact is most normal humans love their kids. Yet with that love comes a grey area that most people don't know how to... Continue Reading →

Good Morning

Rise & Shine

Ever since my home was invaded by tiny humans in early 2012, they have managed to take the one thing most vital to life besides water. SLEEP! From the first siege the late nights went from poppin’ bottles into making bottles. Sleeping soundly vanished.  As a new parent you are compelled to listen for the... Continue Reading →

He’s no mom, but…

Those of you who were fortunate to have a positive father figure in your lives most likely hold the title Dad in high regard.  If not, you at least respect it. I hope. Dad is the rock, the stand up guy, the guy asleep in the chair that can tell if you turn the television... Continue Reading →

Who does this guy think he is?

I know what some of you must be thinking, and you're about 50% correct.  Is this another one of those "sarcastic dad" blogs? Damn right it is! You like it so what does that say about you? Look, will some of my writing make you uncomfortable? Yes. Will some of it make you burst into laughter? I hope so.... Continue Reading →
