Buggin’ Out on the Fourth.


This post is sponsored by OFF! ®, but all the opinions are my own. Ever since we left Los Angeles and moved back East, the days are gone where I can count on an almost-arid, sunny ’70-degree day. If you’re not familiar with the (just outside) watershed region of Maryland, the months of June, July and

How Does Your Family Eat Dinner?


These days, it could be any night of the week. It’s 6pm, halfway through what I call the ‘witching hour’. I’ve done it all. We went on a walk to the park, we pulled out the play-doh (and put the rock hard nuggets from last week in the trash), built a nostalgic-yet-stupid balsa flyer that

Straight Up Family Business and Staying Connected.


Disclosure: This is a sponsored post as part of a campaign for the Straight Talk Wireless Tester program. The thoughts and opinions remain my own. As I mentioned in a different blog post last week, I’m rapidly approaching my sixth year as a stay-at-home dad. While the sixth year doesn’t feel much different than the

10 Things I’ve Done Wrong as a Stay-at-Home Dad.


It’s hard to believe that I’ve been a full-time stay-at-home dad for almost six years. There wasn’t one moment in the 90’s, where I sat back on my grody college sofa after pulling a hefty bong rip and thought, ‘Man, I’m really glad that I’m spending all this time and money to get a hearty

Just Strollin’ Along on Father’s Day.


Six years ago, I wasn’t sure what kind of dad I might be. Certainly, I’d had an amazing influence in my own father, as well as my grandfathers and uncles, my father-and-brother-in-law, but as you hold your wife’s hand in the delivery room, I think you’re waiting for that identity to be born (so to

Your Father’s Day Report Card is in. (Plus a $250 VISA Card Giveaway!)


As a kid, I remember the day that report cards came out. No longer were you trusted to bring that piece of paper home in your backpack – they mailed that shit. I’m surprised it wasn’t sent as ‘certified mail’. The problem for me, was that I was in school while the mail was being

MILK: My Family and Giving Back.


In 1981, my parents bought an empty, wooded plot of land in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania from my mom’s uncle, John. My dad would spend many late-night hours devoting his time towards designing a house for our family. He had a vision for their homestead, the roof that would provide shelter to his wife and children.

BREAKING: Wingman Saves Dad on a Sweltering Summer Saturday.


So far, this summer has come out swinging. Literally. Over the past few weeks, Charlie has been grinding his way through his first season of t-ball, in our local 4 and under league. I was so excited by the idea of him being old enough to play, that I offered up my services as an

Are you a Good Parent?


Every morning, I pull into the parking lot at our preschool, take a deep breath, put on a smile and hop out of my truck. I wave at the other parents and inconspicuously take notice about how they act with their kids. Everyone has their ‘happy hats’ on and it feels like we’re shooting a

Ava hunting Easter Eggs

Chopper Mom and the Golden Egg.

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
