From Lazy to Dapper in 4 Drops

Man oh man, things have been tough lately. I don’t really know why but they have. Ok, well, I do know why they’ve been tough. It’s because we have 5 kids. But when I say “things have been tough” what I really mean is “tougher than our normal baseline tough.”

There is always something to do for school, something to do around the house, around the yard, some event to get to, some birthday party etc. etc. multiplied by 5. Some days it’s a bit overwhelming and I just lock myself in my room and stare at the wall while the kids try to break the door down with pick axes. Alright, so maybe I don’t lock myself in my room but I dream about it. Continue reading From Lazy to Dapper in 4 Drops

Getting Gifts for a Family

I’ve been running my blog for just over 2 years now and from time to time I have gotten requests from people to guest write post to help them gain exposure or just because they enjoy writing but didn’t want the commitment of their own blog. I have largely resisted allowing other people to post here but after some consideration I decided I would loosen the reigns some and occasionally allow others to share a post.

My first guest writer is Ashley and she is going to share some tips about buying gifts for an entire family: Continue reading Getting Gifts for a Family

The Potty Protector – Mom & Dads Best Friend

The Potty Protector is a nifty tool that was created with mom and dad in mind. Boys of all ages miss the “mark” from time to time and can quickly turn a clean bathroom into a messy (and smelly) war zone.

The Potty Protector is a plastic shield that fits easily on your toilet to protect your porcelain and its surrounding areas (especially the back); leaving you with a fresh and clean surface every time you need to go.

As a parent I can see the benefit of having a Potty Protector handy. It makes constant cleaning a thing of the past and allows you to spend your precious time enjoying your loved ones rather then cleaning up after them.

The best part is that it fits any toilet shape and size and is very easy to install and remove. Its dries quickly and cleaning is a breeze, just use a disinfectant wipe or soap and water.

I could use a little help

When I started this blog nearly 2 years ago to the day, I had no idea what I was doing, where it was heading or who would support me. I was blown away by the support of my friends and by complete strangers.  I’m still humbled every time someone comments or shares one of my posts.

I used to beg for votes on Top Mommy Blogs. You guys made me the number one daddy blogger. I’m still the number one dad blogger thanks to you guys. You did such a great job supporting me I don’t even have to beg anymore. For that I owe you a huge thank you.

I have one more HUGE favor to ask you, to beg you for. Continue reading I could use a little help

There’s just something about a dad and his little girl

Four years ago on October 20, 2012 I was where I am many Saturdays in the fall, in The Swamp, watching the Florida Gators play football. We were playing South Carolina and it was an important conference game. The Gators were doing well. With about 3 minutes to go in the first half, I got a text from my wife. It read: “I’m going into labor, I’m headed to the hospital now.”  Continue reading There’s just something about a dad and his little girl
