Stay-At-Home Dads More Likely to Divorce?

by Al Watts

Time’s Healthland reported last month that stay-at-home dads are more likely to divorce. It is NOT TRUE. What’s even worse is the title they chose for the URL. That is downright shameful.

Garden Tomato Pasta

by David White

Hey, guys!  The tomatoes in my garden are going nuts right now, and my windowsill is getting crowded (Any gardeners out there?).   I’ve been struggling to find something to do with them all.  Last week, I made up this pasta recipe.  It took 20 minutes, tops.  It’s full of flavor, healthy-ish (we use freshly […]

Traveling With Children

by RFarrell

By the time the plane touched down we were all exhausted. The screaming was non-stop, piercing, and maddening. I had a strange calm about the entire ordeal though.

What Do You Do For A Living?

by Shannon Carpenter

What do you do for a living?  Several years ago, this question was easy.  I was a stunt car driver and a professional street fighter on the weekends.

Education, the Daily Deal?

School starts for us in two weeks,  seems like just yesterday when Dakota and I flew to Wisconsin for his extended holiday away from home and his parents.

Are You a Bobblehead Dad?

by Al Watts

Jim Higley loved collecting bobbleheads when he was a kid. He got a tickle in his stomach every time one of the spring-loaded smiling heads of his bobbleheads would jiggle. He spent more time than he cares to admit trying to get the head to bob for as long as possible. When Jim became an […]

The Importance of “The Wives”

by Aknapitsch

I’m blessed with a good-sized circle of friends.  Work friends, friends from church, friends in our neighborhood, etc.  Despite all this, some of my most valuable friendships are those with the other wives from playgroup.  We call ourselves the “Sugar Mommas”.  It’s an interesting group.  We’ve got a wide variety of ages, careers, interests, personalities […]

Fast and Easy Homemade Pizza

by David White

As a full-time SAHD, I often find myself stuck with some undesirable tasks.  One task that falls into our laps sometimes is cooking.  I don’t always cook dinner, but my wife sure does like to come home on busy days and not have to worry with cooking.  It’s so hard to find quick, simple, and […]
