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

DAD’S IN DEEP SH!T #27 – King Arthur Lives.

3 comments

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. Earlier today, unbeknownst to you, it came in the form of this guy. Unfortunately, here he is again… All 6’1″ and 230 pounds of mouth-breathing sexiness with stickers on his face. He may not look like much, but after making the kids breakfast, packing their lunches and running

Mason Gets His Stroll On.

For the last few months, I’ve literally felt like some sort of animal, hibernating in my burrow. Except I’m not underground, I’m crunched up in a ball under blankets inside the house with my kids next to the fireplace. This winter has been absolutely BRUTAL. I’ve shoveled the driveway the EXACT number of times I’ve

Let’s fast-forward to tomorrow morning… or even Sunday morning.  Chances are, you might have someone lying next to you in bed.  Whether it’s your husband, wife or even the stranger that somehow became your soul mate at 2:05am in front of the pub as they broke a heel or split their pants and tumbled to

With the recent birth of our third child, I’ve felt confident that Ava (4½) and Charlie (2½) were in a pretty good place for the most part, able to listen and follow most directions and on occasion even lend a hand with the baby.  Ava has been a great big sister so far, helping to

“I love big families.  I’d totally love to have 4 or 5 kids, that would be so awesome”, my wife said to her friend Lisa as she paced around the kitchen on the phone. “Holy motherfuck, she’s off the reservation, dude.”, I said to myself, as I backpedaled into the shadows surrounding the basement door,

My first day back at work after the holiday was a rude awakening.  Within a few hours of being at the office, I found that my company had decided to take a less aggressive approach in scripted development and ultimately changed their direction.  With that, I was out of a job. I had worked in

Flying the red-eye with an infant isn’t as glamorous as banging a flight attendant in a 737 bathroom on the way to your buddy’s bachelor party in Vegas, but it does have its perks.  Wait, no, it doesn’t.  It doesn’t have any perks. Welcome to being the disease. If you want to know what it

Cookie Monster Needs His Sleep.

The days of eating out of vending machines and recycling underwear were over.  No longer would I have to touch my rear to a foreign toilet seat, watch sports in standard-definition, or remember the names of 30 rotating nurses.  We were back on home turf.  After we carried Ava into the house, I spent some

One of the benefits of being a Dad, aside from not having to go through surgery or shoot a human out of your vagina, is being able to walk into the hospital lounge after delivery and announce the birth.  In my case, we had already divulged the sex of the baby to everyone, so I
