Time Away is Good…it Just Throws You off Your Routine

by Mbecker

Ok, the one thing I have been saying is that I would be consistent with my blogging and I really have a desire to be that way and make a go of this blog, but there are many things that get in the way. I give a lot of credit to those bloggers that have […]

Dear mom I am Claire’s Teddy Bear

by Msager

Dear mom I am Claire’s Teddy Bear When Claire was born I had prepared for the event by purchasing four pink blankets. They were all cotton and they were soft and cuddly and I was sure they would be the perfect blanket for her when she needed something to comfort here. I had this vision […]

Get out of the pantry

by Al Watts

Many at-home dads are like Miss Havisham from Charles Dickens’ “Great Expectations:” we are reclusive and rarely venture outside of our homes.

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 […]
