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

Party Under The Big Top #8

Party Under the Big Top Act Eight Easter Edition Welcome to My CircusParty Under the Big Top ~ Act Eight

I am beyond excited to be the new Ringmaster to co-host The Party Under the Big Top with Lysa from over at Welcome To My Circus. I have enjoyed being a regular participant in the link-up and was so thrilled that Lysa asked me to step up and co-host when the previous co-host stepped down. I was eager to say yes and jump right in. I’m hoping Lysa and I, together with all of you, can make this a fun spot to connect with other bloggers, have some fun and read some great posts. All while having a little friendly competition to see who will be the next featured acts with the most views. Also after you link up a post don’t forget to scroll down a little more and link up your Facebook page so we can all connect.

Toddlers are like Drunk Adults

I’m certainly not the first person who has ever made this comparison and I’m sure I won’t be the last. I think I first heard the comparison from my good friend Casey Grice a few years back but I’m sure he wasn’t the first person who ever thought of it either. With his permission I decided to come up with all the ways I could think of that a Toddler and a Drunk Adult were similar.

Neither of them should get behind the wheel of a car and drive. Continue reading Toddlers are like Drunk Adults

Helping Your Child Stay Safe

We all want our kids to be safe and there are some basic and simple steps we can take to help them be just a little more prepared should a potentially dangerous situation arise. The first thing we have to do is talk to our kids about some of these situations they may encounter.

This seems so obvious but I bet many of us haven’t Continue reading Helping Your Child Stay Safe

What direction are your kids headed?

It’s always been interesting to me how different my kids are. They each have the same biological parents and have each been raised together but they are all just as unique as they can be.  As I got to thinking about it the other day I realized they were each like a point on a compass pointing their own direction. That of course got me to contemplating which kid was which point. After thinking about it, it seemed very obvious who was North, South, East & West.  Continue reading What direction are your kids headed?

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

Don’t Ever Ask A Woman If She’s Pregnant

We’re not pregnant. (That I know of)

Furthermore, you should never, under any circumstances, ask a woman if she is pregnant. I though this was a no-brainer common courtesy issue but it seems somewhere along the line many people have forgotten plain common sense. Absolutely no good will come from you asking a woman if she is pregnant. Allow me to break down the different scenarios that could play out. Continue reading Don’t Ever Ask A Woman If She’s Pregnant
