Easter has long been one of my favorite holidays, despite that one year that I got the psychedelic bunny at the mall as evidenced in THIS previously written article. I always enjoyed the excitement surrounding the tradition of dying Easter eggs with my two younger brothers. And contrary to most peoples’ initial reaction – I

There’s nothing more painful than having to move a family of five twice in one year. Throw in having to switch schools, adjust to different schedules and policies and then have half of the family get the flu (including myself currently), it’s been a borderline debilitating few months.

As a few of you know from my last post, we’ve recently had a bout with black mold in our kitchen. The last six weeks have seemed like a massive game of rope-a-dope, with me stumbling from one corner of the ring to the next. The good news is that we found a great place

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.

Every year, halfway through December, I get to a point where I get all nostalgic and reflect on the past year. I think about the things that I’ve been able to accomplish with my blog, the milestones and memories that my wife and I have been able to create with the kids and what I

We’ve all been there. Standing silently, hunched over in the corner, your eyebrows are sweating on you’re on the verge of a dry heave – stuck in the elevator trying to get to the office bathroom or riding on the subway with, like 8 stops to go…it’s called…explosive diarrhea. On the flip side of the

November is so ill.

It was 84 degrees here today. Just to remind everyone, it’s November, not July. When we wake up tomorrow morning, it’ll be 45 degrees, with a high of 65 and the local weather wizards aren’t even sure it’ll make it there. A 20-degree temperature dip within the course of a few hours is a major

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. Being a parent is generally difficult enough on its own, but when you factor in multiple children at various ages it becomes significantly more complex. Add to that things like school,
