Maybe it’s just me, but the end of August has me hearing the siren song of the back-to-school angels. Don’t get me wrong, I love it when school finally lets out and through those months of June and all through July, we’ve had the best of times – excited and ambitious to get through our

NOTE FROM DAD OR ALIVE: This story was written by my wife. I had started and stopped many attempts to put onto paper my thoughts and feelings about this time in our lives and realized that, man or woman, father or mother, this post as it is may resonate with many parents out there… On this

Pulling a Pick 6 on Fussy Eaters.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hebrew National. The opinions and text are all mine. Call them what you’d like – fussy, picky, persnickety and if we’re being nice – particular eaters. I’ll be honest, my kids have their moments. They’ll go a few weeks in a row, never complaining

The world of potty-ing has changed by definition dramatically for me over the last several years. One minute you’re stumbling out of a comedy club at 1am and headed up into the Hills for an after party and the next, well…you’re teaching little folks how to actually use a potty – something I have personal

A little over thirty-five years ago, on a cool Pennsylvania morning in the month of June, I threw on my blue and white Lower Milford Elementary school windbreaker, waited for the school bus to come down Spinnerstown Road and hopped on. I had finally graduated from pre-K and was now at the ‘big kids’ school,

Plain and simple, training someone to use the bathroom properly wasn’t in my job description when I began my professional career over twenty years ago. However, when I left that corner office and started over as a stay-at-home dad and primary caregiver a little over seven years ago, I made a decision to embrace these

Getting Outside is Half the Battle.

June has already come out swinging with a roller coaster of temperatures that match the emotions of my children as they phase their way out of Preschool, Pre-K and 1st grade. Some days we’ve got super highs and some days we’ve got super lows. The only constant would be that ‘nothing is ever good enough’,

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a sponsored post on behalf of the DIYZ_app and the #DIYZGuys campaign, however, the power tools, damaged fingertips and raised garden bed are all mine! Back in the day, we never needed to call anyone to come and fix the leaky faucet, creaky wooden stair or A/C outlet that didn’t

A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES.

Up until a few weeks ago, I had been making two dinners a night. I’d make one for the kids and simultaneously, one for my wife and me. We’d give the kids a bath, read stories and get them in bed. After they were zonked, she and I would sit down and revel in the

Flow on the Go: Potty Training Tips for the Road.

Back in the early 2000s, I was the unfortunate victim of having to suffer through Southern California traffic during late-day rush hour. Having an afternoon meeting on a Friday at one of the TV networks in the ‘Valley’ (San Fernando – over the hill) while living on Venice Beach couldn’t have been a worse scenario.
