The day finally came. The one I have dreaded for more than nine years.
I’ve written before about my grandparents and the role they played in my childhood.
Oftentimes I feel like my record as a parent has been 10 misfires to one solid parenting moment.
It finally happened, the parenting blogger’s worst nightmare.
What do you do with a fully-scheduled family?
When I was a new parent, I worried about a lot of things. Sleeping patterns, jammy tightness, sleep on the back, sleep on the front… it all occupied a lot of intellectual capital. But the one that occupied the most was food.
I am not a tech novice. Mind you, I do not work in the tech sector or have any formal education in the skill either, but I can do many techy things, including mild programming, networking, maintenance, and so on. I can even work on a Windows device for more than five minutes before I want to…
One of my favorite memories of childhood was rushing home from school to catch the afternoon cartoons.
The Omaha Police Union recently posted a viral video of a swearing toddler and called it the “cycle of thuggery and violence.”
We may be approaching a milestone in our house… my oldest has discovered doubt.
Holiday traditions are a funny thing. As parents we desperately seek them, less for holiday ease and more for wishing our kids to have lasting memories of the season; however…
“Let’s not exchange gifts this year.”
Thanksgiving. The holiday honors the joys of family, food, and gratitude, but it also opens the season of holiday traditions.
The stage is set for our latest bonding exercise.
It’s a memory from my youth that played out a hundred times in the same way. The location changed, as well as certain specifics, but the scene always played out like this.
Having my wife’s family a day’s drive away offers an unusual opportunity for me… time home alone.
Being a dad blogger, I get all kinds of questions. So, today, I’d like to take some time to address a particularly good one.
It finally happened. The question finally came. Although it was my wife that got the first round of questions about my tattoo.
Like many parents I watched the coverage of the Miley Cyrus debacle.
As parents we often need the reminder that sometimes the most irritating qualities possessed by our children are in fact ones we have shared with them.
I am a firm believer that Teacher Appreciation Day should coincide with the first day of school.
Sometimes as parents we have to witness an event to truly appreciate how many times we have faced the same thing and, possibly, just how poorly we reacted under the same circumstances.
I have had the same dream often.
