Just another story about my life as a Dance Dad.......
This past weekend two of my girls participated in the local drive for St. Jude's Telethon. Every year their dance studio showcases ten or so routines from the competition teams. Usually I am a spectator/baby wrangler. This year I traded the wrangling for fu...

Undermining Gender stereotypes
It has been some time since I have written, let alone done anything on this blog. I assure you I have not been abducted and forced into hard labor (oh, wait! I am a stay-at-home dad; this is hard labor!). To bring you up to speed, the kids are great. Fourth...

Last night I witnessed something we rarely see in our friends. Let me back up a bit. My daughter has been dancing at local dance studio for five years and has been on the competition team for the last three. Through the team, we have become friends with the...

What I learned from sleeping in the hospital with my 19 month old.
(This might be long, but bear with me.) I have always been a sound sleeper. Very sound. Something in my body is wired to sleep when I get horizontal. In college, a dorm-mate suggested not to hang out in your bed. It is for sleeping, only. That way when you ...

First World Problems.
I almost called it quits this morning. While at a local shopping establishment, (ok Target, you caught me. For the second time this week. Don't judge.) for birthday gifts for a couple of Anniversary Of Your Birth parties coming up, I realized I could care l...

Someone Get Me A Time Machine
Today is my daughter's birthday. It is my oldest's birthday. (I have to be specific due to all the kids around here.) Not only is it the anniversary of her coming into this world, it is the anniversary of me becoming a dad. A Father. A caregiver. A grownup....

My street is crazy. More Good Samaritan stories.
I live on a main road. A pretty busy thoroughfare used my most travelers getting to where-ever they are going. It is safe to say that accidents happen. A few years ago my mailbox was "relocated" by a woman.  And just this past week the same thing happened t...

I'm getting old
My birthday is coming up.  Its not a huge one; just the run of the mill "Half Way To 70" birthday that all people throw a crazy party for. (At least that's what I'm telling myself) 35 is the new 20, right?  Well if that is the case I certainly don't feel it...

Forgive me blog father for I have sinned. It has been too long since my last post.
That's right.  I have not fallen off the face of the planet, been mauled by wild wolves, or even been committed to an insane asylum (officially anyway.  I do live with four women!) I don't know where we left off, and I am too lazy to go back and read my own...
