Posted by on July 1st, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

There are coffee experts. And then there are those who aren’t, but are experts at being abysmally tired. A lot of them are parents. We try to become experts at making ourselves not so tired. A lot of us turn to the liquid wonder of caffein, but we tend to look and feel like absolute […]

Dadding Smarter, Not Harder

Posted by on June 29th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

Necessity may be the “mother of all invention” but laziness is its father. At least for me. I know dads don’t have the market cornered on lazy ingenuity, of course. And it’s not really “laziness” to have a lip-chewing dislike for performing a thousand tedious tasks, a million times over and over again, throughout the […]

My Wife Just Said… #271

Posted by on June 27th, 2016, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

I can’t really contradict her. Not when I have days where my zipper was down more than it was up. And, it’s true, there’s also my lovely fart-singing voice. We live in a world where adulthood isn’t the pressed slacks and wingtip shoes it used to be. For a lot of us, now it’s a […]

6AM TODDLER Energy Beverage (Bad Product Idea #20)

Posted by on June 21st, 2016, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

​ ​One might think this was actually a good product idea. Maybe the best energy drink ever conceived, but no. So shower-cry sadly it is not. This energy drink wouldn’t turbocharge you with raw pulse-pounding power when you wanted it. 110% nope. Every kid-owner already knows. No matter what time of day or night, it’d […]

My Wife Just Yawned… #269

Posted by on June 15th, 2016, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

I guess I should be glad that she’s still willing to push through the exhaustion and power-lift her lead-heavy, kryptonite eyelids to stay up with me. Though, honestly, the number of shows episodes and ends of movies we’ve had to rematch because of this has to be in the triple digits now. She doesn’t snore, […]

Posted by on June 13th, 2016, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Ah, Father’s Day breakfast! For families that celebrate the day with a special breakfast, it usually starts with Mom whipping up some food favorites for the dad of honor and presenting them herself, with the child enthusiastically waving a card or a school project made of 50% construction paper and 50% paste. Maybe in the […]

The Emotional Moments When Military Fathers Come Home

Posted by on June 7th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

With Memorial Day just behind us and Father’s Day right around the corner, I found myself thinking about what it would’ve been like if I’d served in the Armed Forces. The first thing that struck me — and I must confess that it had never really fully hit me before — was how much I’d […]
