Ava hunting Easter Eggs

Chopper Mom and the Golden Egg.

1 comment

Easter egg hunts have always been traditionally chaotic. When me and my brothers were little, our sibling hunt occurred on Easter morning. We’d spend the day or two before, dyeing real eggs with our parents, using the clear crayon to draw little messages, smiles and flowers and as we got older, began writing things like

Back in 1994, I remember packing up for college and begging my parents to take the family computer. I NEEDED that computer. I was going to move out of their home 3 1/2 hours away and put my nose to the grindstone along with a few thousand other ambitious freshmen. I pleaded with them, telling them

I’m not sure how much I’ve talked about my past. I may or may not have spilled the beans once or twice about the fact that I lost everything I owned in a fire when I was 21. I had completely moved out of my parent’s home in 1994 and was living at college for four

The Chaos of Turning One.

So, if you’re wondering where I’ve been since Mason’s 1st birthday party, you don’t have to look far. I’m that crumpled mound of bruised flesh and sore bones laying next to seven bags of used wrapping paper in the garage, collected and neglected from January. I gave you guys a bit of a sneak-preview and

Marriage is a Gas. Literally.

We’ve all had those moments. Those moments when we’re using everything in the toolbox to not let one squeak. Maybe it was your first date. Perhaps it was the first time she slept over at your apartment. Cheeks clinched, eyebrows sweating, your nervous eyes darting around every corner of the room. You did everything you

What an Incredible Ride.

I feel like it’s been forever since I peeked out the airport window, looking over East Aurora, NY as we circled the runway in Buffalo. I remember quite vividly, the well-dressed gentleman waiting for me at baggage claim, holding up a sign that said ‘Mr. Kulp’. It’s been quite some time since anyone has called

It was only a matter of time. After getting beat down on a daily basis over the last five years, I’ve gotten tired. Some people might call it lazy, but those people can suck it. I prefer tired. I pretty much let my kids do whatever they want these days. Well, not really, but you

It’s no secret that my wife and I live hundreds of miles away from our respective families and I am sure that we’re not in the minority. For us, and those of you in that same (cramped up and horrific smelling) boat, December might mean ‘life on the road’. So far this month, we’ve driven

Why Are The Holidays Important?

0 comments

Being on the road over the last two weeks, driving up and down the eastern seaboard, traveling to visit both of our families, has given me plenty of time (30 hours over 1,700 miles) to reflect on some of the most sentimental memories of Christmases past. A majority of the things in my life tend

I Feel So frankin’ Pretty.

Who knew that 2014 would be the year of beauty for Dad or Alive. For 38 years, I’ve fought back the suggestions that I ‘might like or enjoy’ a manicure or pedicure. I launched verbal tirades against the peanut gallery (my mom, girlfriends, friends, doctors, dermatologists) that tried to convince me that ‘lotion is good
