If I were a man who cared more about scores and numbers, this would make me crazy. It’s not that Avara’s doing to get revenge (well, maybe just a little bit), but it’s because this is an activity we enjoy doing together. Sometimes, Finn and I play video games together. He tanks my percentages, my […]

Pull up a seat, boys and girls. You see, after you have kids, hell even before that, there’s a period of time where you may eat a bit more than you used to or is even reasonable. For me, I gained weight at every step while my wife was pregnant. Both times. But here we […]

“Cuddles. Get ’em when you can.❤” –Avara   The older your kids get, the faster and more painfully distant they can become. I know I’m whiling away the hours and days before my sons push off into the vast seas of young adulthood. They will never know what it’s like to have a father who couldn’t […]

“Pretty sure the pharmacist just called me “sir”. Not really sure how to feel about this.” –Avara   As a kid, lots of people on the phone called me ma’am. No idea why, and it was very frustrating, though I can’t even describe why. Gender identification is a hot-button issue right now. I guess we all […]

“I’m so out of shape, I’m pretty sure the strongest muscles in my body are my kegels.” –Avara   My wife is a very strong person. She is stronger, in moments, than I am. She doesn’t stop. It takes a lot to piss her off and sometimes that strength clouds her ability to take compliments from […]

“Recorded my husband snoring last night. Plan to use it to wake him up. This is how you can tell we’ve been together 16 years.” –Avara   My wife and I have been together for a long time. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a game still afoot. We still make fun of each other. And […]

“Just saw the new Star Wars. I cried. But that’s not a spoiler because it happened on the opening credits.” –Avara   Pressure can be a unpredictable thing. You can get so hyped up, and anxious that things take on new levels of meaning. Star Wars: The Force Awakens (yes, yet another post about the damn […]

“Finn wasn’t impressed it was 42 minutes past his bedtime, so I told him it was 2,520 SECONDS past his bedtime. That shut him up. #mamatricks” –Avara   It’s all about perspective. Whether you’re talking to a parent or child, perspective gives us the difference between mountains and mole hills. Sometimes, you have to force a […]

“My kid’s more talented than yours.” –Avara   My kids have so many quirks they’d give every Tim Burton movie combined a run for their money. Both of my sons do and say things I don’t always understand, but somewhere inside their funny, strange mannerisms lies their genius, humor and uniqueness. For as much as I […]
