Starting a New Life.

3 comments

There’s nothing harder than picking up the life you’ve grown accustomed to and moving on. There’s also nothing more exciting. I was forced to do this almost twenty years ago as a college student after losing everything I owned in an apartment fire. And I’ve done it again as a husband and father with three

Getting Old: Sexy AND Comfortable.

0 comments

On the heels of turning 40 this past Friday, I got all the classic ‘old dude’ gifts, complete with an ‘Over the Hill’ coffee mug and a 6-pack of handkerchiefs (for me to cry into) from wife’s grandparents. But then I also had a few people tell me that ’40 is the new 30′ and

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

1 comment

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

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

What We Got Each Other for Our 5-year Wedding Anniversary.

7 comments

Five years ago today, high atop the beautiful city of Boston, with friends and family as our witnesses, I married a truly incredible woman. We exchanged vows with one another and without knowing what the future might hold, we committed to doing it together.  On that day, we didn’t have a care in the world,

They Call Us Dad – FATHER’S DAY EDITION.

2 comments

Thirty-seven years ago, my old man held me in his arms for the first time. Gone was his Triumph motorcycle and gold spray-painted war helmet.  He’d sold them because he was starting a family and as a dad, perhaps some of the wilder times were behind him.  His long bangs, bell-bottoms and tight t-shirts were

My Accountant Told Me To Get a Job.

3 comments

“You should get a job”, my accountant said to me, as my wife and I sat across from him in his office in early April, preparing our tax returns. Let’s get one thing straight.  I’ve always fancied myself as a lover, not a fighter.  I’ve almost always tried to avoid violence as a way to

Terrible Two’s: Easy Like Sunday Morning.

A few days ago, a buddy of mine asked me for advice on becoming a new parent.  I told him that I was no expert… I only do what works for me.  But I didn’t want to leave him hanging, so I gave him a few of my ‘bread n’ butters’.  I told him to

DAD’S IN DEEP SH!T #25: Clean Up On Aisle Two.

14 comments

“We’re gonna need a wet clean-up in aisle two”, I heard over the PA system of my local grocery store.  We froze in our tracks, tipped our hats and offered a curtsy towards the other shoppers in our vicinity.  I’d love to tell you that this was the first and last time this ever happened,

A Dad and His Daughter.

Sleep is a valuable commodity around these parts right now.  Up until last night, I’ve been waking up on a pile of blankets on the floor of my son’s room.  Unless you have amnesia or were competing in the Iditarod, you’ll remember that I stoked the coals of the internet for a few days last
