I haven’t talked about it much over the last month or so, but back in January, our family experienced a very minor water leak in the kitchen of our home in coastal Virginia. Moisture made it’s way in between the hardwood and sub-flooring and created a black mold situation that extended throughout our kitchen and

My New Year’s Resolution: A Little Less Staring, a Little More Caring.

EDITOR’S NOTE: I am partnering with Minute Maid for a series of stories to help parents realize they’re #doingood. All opinions are my own. There’s no perfect book written about how to be a parent. Sure, there are a few decent reads out there, heck I even wrote one myself (less self-help and more I

Before I started a family, the bathroom was kind of similar to the post office for me, I’d occasionally stop in, drop off my mail and abandon ship a few minutes later. In recent years, since Ava, Charlie and Mason were born, I’d locate the little half-bathroom in our house and barricade myself inside with

With our recent move to the coastal country of Virginia, there are a few things that have become glaringly obvious. First off, trying to pack up over 700 boxes with three kids under the age of six running around is an incredibly hard task. Second, there’s no telling how crazy your kids will act during

I’m 40 and I’m not Invincible Anymore.

In 2013, I was riding high on a book and TV deal and took a trip back to Los Angeles (where I’d previously lived for 13 years) to do some work with my friends at Kids in the House. I stayed with my friend, Mike and his wife Hannah, in Culver City. Mike and I

Spring is upon us, the taxes are done (mine aren’t) and I’m standing in the front yard looking at the atrocity that is my field of dandelions and weed-filled flowerbeds. The outside is important, but so are the things on the inside of your house. We’re in spring cleaning mode ’round these parts. We’ve spent

This Could Save Your Child’s Life.

With three kids under the age of six, we’ve obviously gone through different stages of development at varying times. I’ll be the first to admit that there’s nothing sweeter than being able to take those baby gates down, instead of trying to be a hero, high-stepping and dragging your undercarriage across the plastic, mesh or
