Saving a Bee

Posted by on October 13th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK

Walking down my driveway the other afternoon, I noticed a honey bee struggling weakly on the pavement. This is nothing new, and my first thought was, as soon as my son comes home, he’ll figure out a way to get that bugger’s little ass dagger stuck in his bare foot. I was right about to […]

Posted by on October 10th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

Sholom Ber Solomon is a dad to his baby, Zoe, and he’s my hero for today. Maybe even this week or month. Taking cute shots of your baby is pretty simple, since babies are ridiculously cute by default. This glorious man, however, didn’t just go the extra mile, he went Forrest Gump on it and […]

My Wife Just Said… #333

Posted by on October 4th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

Last weekend my wife and I went on a date night. I can’t remember when the last time we did one, honestly. Either because my memory is that wrecked these days, or it was so long ago that it’s hard to see past the mental cobwebs. Probably both. Make that definitely both. During the day, […]

I can’t be the only parent who’s gotten caught into a rut with family movies. My son is young enough that there are a bunch of movies that come with the price of nightmares or restless sleep, so there are some extra limitations beyond what’s generally considered age appropriate or not, not to mention whether […]

The Symptoms of Bad Influence-itis

I’ve joined forces with Responsibility.org as one of their paid ambassadors for their TalkEarly campaign, which is about, well… talking early about alcohol responsibility with your kids. Cheers!   Parents can make little furry loaves of fallen-out hair in the shower drain worrying about their kids getting sick. But, there’s another non-physical strain of contagion […]

My Wife Just Said… 331

Trust is an important part of marriage. When you can be counted upon to be totally and shamelessly honest about something like bodily functions, or MALfunctions as the case may be, you can present a pretty believable case in your defense of “dealt it vs. didn’t deal it”.

My Kid Just Said… #64

Posted by on September 15th, 2017, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

I like to think of words as ingredients in a sentence or statement. You’ve got your fast-food m’kay’s and Idunno’s, and you’ve got your everyday meals of chit chat, and there’s also the more elaborate culinary creations of deep philosophic discussions and funny stories. Sometimes, though, I like to whip up something a bit spicy. […]
