The Night The Fish Came To Dinner

by Charles Wasleski

Princess: What’s for dinner? Me: Fish. Mommy thawed it out. Princess: I don’t like it! Me: You’ve never had it before. And it doesn’t taste like anything. Princess: *whimper* (stomp stomp stomp) Well, that was encouraging. Dinner time: Baked Tilapia, in a nice Olive oil and Apple juice marinade. Chicken flavored rice with a side […]

Snip-Snip

by Al Watts

It’s been nearly 2 years since I had the ol’ snip-snip or, as my doctor preferred to call it, my vasectomy. You won’t find many guys willing to talk about their experience. It’s a bit like peaking over the urinal. But, I believe men everywhere need to know what to expect. I believe this story […]

Dads Groups Should Become More Inclusive

by lsomerfeld

From the desk of:       NYC Dads Group At last year’s at-home dad convention in Omaha, Nebraska, I vividly remember a meaningful conversation regarding the exclusivity of being a stay-at-home dads group vs. being a stay-at-home ‘parents’ group (and allowing moms to be members as well).   The overall consensus from the participants of this conversation seemed […]

I learned from my daughter this weekend!

by Mbecker

Ok, so I like to do this blogging stuff early in the morning, but that just didn’t work out for me today, so I want to make sure I do it. Afterall, Brian Reid, Rebel Dad himself, said you have to be consistent and I don’t want to fall off the wagon already. This weekend […]

The SAHD and His Man Bag

by Shannon Carpenter

I carry a bag.  No man, it’s ok to admit it.  And chances are, you carry a bag to.  I know, it’s tough and yet it’s still true.  Sure, we all call it different things.  It’s a backpack.  Or it’s the child’s satchel.  It’s the “football.”  Sure man, whatever you want to tell yourself to […]

Empowering the Parent

Thursday is graduation but that is not the highlight believe it or not, the highlight was being accepted into this class with the privilege of attending class for 20 weeks with some very powerful new family leaders.
Each week for the first three weeks I was not looking forward to attending but as the class jelled and came together and we got to know each…

Parenting With Purpose

by Mike Poff

By now everyone has seen the merriment and mayhem of parents and their multiples on “Reality TV”. All the free VIP tours of resort parks, major tourist locales and name brand shopping chains have sent many  flocking for IVF treatment. Or was there anyone beside Nadja Suleman? Take it from me what you see on […]

Dear Mom, Tigger Shrunk

by Msager

My daughter, Claire,  walked into the kitchen the other day carrying a stuffed Tigger. It was a big Tigger. It used to be a giant Tigger, that is when she was smaller. He stands about 30” high. I remember when he and his friends in the 100 acre wood were used as a kind of […]

Get that kid out of here!

by Bboisvert

Recently Al Watts wrote a blog for Momaha.com (click here)  based on dad discrimination. What a great article and true, it reminded me of something that happened a while ago about a different kind of discrimination, not dad and not mom but child discrimination. Child discrimination I think is the worst kind. As parents we […]

No! Dad!

by Abowling

I have grown tired of hearing, “No! Dad!” Lately, it is our two-year-old son’s favorite phase. Of course, it’s never directed to my husband, but to me. I get it. I don’t need to be reminded that he prefers his dad to read stories, push him on the swings, kiss his boo-boos, change his diaper, […]
