Post Bath Shenanigans

Last night after her bath, Ela started trying to “teach” me something. She was going on and on and being so serious in what she was saying. I was having a hard time not laughing. Every time I tried to do what she was doing she would tell me I was doing it wrong.

I still insist I was doing it exactly like she was and even she wasn’t doing it the same way every time. After a couple of minutes, I decided to get out my phone and see if I could get her to teach me on camera. Continue reading Post Bath Shenanigans

This is What Champions Look Like

As a stay-at-home parent I feel like I put in 14 hour days almost everyday. It’s good for me to find some things to do outside of the house to let me have some fun. The two main things I do for hobbies are improv and sports. The improv I do fairly regularly with my troupe (I have some footage I need to get edited and put up on the blog one day soon) but the sports are sporadic. Usually the sports consist of various random pick-up games. But this summer was different. Continue reading This is What Champions Look Like

The Right Changes are Often the hardest

After a few months of blogging about my adventures as a stay-at-home dad, I’ve had to take a few long looks in the mirror and into my soul and ask myself “is this working out?” The resounding answer is no. It seems people don’t want to read funny stories about a super intelligent, incredibly handsome, and all around humble dad. After doing some long hard google researching about topics to switch my blog to I have finally decided to blog about poli-fascism! Continue reading The Right Changes are Often the hardest

Avoiding Bed Time

I don’t know what it is about bed time, but kids will come up with just about any excuse to delay going to sleep. In a perfect world I like to try and tire the kids out to the point they welcome the opportunity to fall asleep, but the reality is, that doesn’t always happen. Over the past 5 years I have heard some fairly ridiculous reasons why the kids couldn’t lay down and go to sleep.

Hands down, the two most common reasons have been: Continue reading Avoiding Bed Time

Chapstick Potty

Potty training is a necessary evil in every parents life. I don’t know anyone who would describe it as fun but then again changing your child’s diapers for their entire life isn’t going to be fun either. At some point, sooner or later (hopefully sooner) you will potty train your child. Sometimes these things go well, sometimes they go crappy. (That was a dad joke) Continue reading Chapstick Potty

Wild, Untamed, Beautiful Florida

Every year when I was younger, my dad would let me miss a week of school and take me on a hunting/camping/fishing trip in the panhandle of Florida on the Apalachicola River. It is an area that almost seems to take you back in time, back before we paved everything and put up buildings. A wild, untamed part of Florida that few know about and even fewer get to experience. You won’t find this place on any tourist brochures. Continue reading Wild, Untamed, Beautiful Florida
