Something’s Fishy.

In the last ten years, we’ve been fortunate enough to live on both the east and west coasts and while we LOVE both, we’ve been able to identify the subtle differences. Southern California was good to us with its sand, surf and winding concrete strand that runs from the northern tip of Santa Monica, south

Potty On, Wayne.

0 comments

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

Branching Out to Make the World a Better Place.

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,

Keeping Up with What They Can’t.

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

With spring in full swing and summer already nipping at its’ heels here in coastal Virginia, nothing yells out to me more than GRILLING. As most of you who follow my side-winding adventures know, we’ve recently relocated and with that, comes figuring out what to do with the brand new backyard, porch and patio. As

A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES.

0 comments

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

Jack of All Trades, Master of None.

It wasn’t that long ago that I had a formal job, where I had to actually report to a live, adult human being. I sometimes wore this unique style of shirt that had buttons and a collar – far different than my current ensemble. I was fortunate enough to have a job where we had

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.
