Sports..why do I care so much?

by Mbecker

I push my kids to be athletes! I am not proud of it…well, maybe sometimes. I think sports are important in a kid’s life and I want them to become conditioned and love sports like I did. Is there anything wrong with that? No…not until it goes over the edge. I like to teeter at […]

Morning in the Mountains: The Blessing of Challenges

by Mike Poff

Mornings around here start out with a nearly peculiar amount of peace and quiet. Around 5am inside our mountain home near the Crest of the Blue Ridge little stirs in the wee hours. That is except my wife Pam who by my wake-up has been rolling for an hour or more.  Her fleeting fingers in […]

The ABCs of Being a SAHD

by Chris Singer

My 14-month-old daughter Tessa’s favorite book right now is Chicka Chicka ABC. It’s a classic children’s book by Bill Martin Jr. about the letters climbing up the coconut tree. My daughter loves it, and not just because I read it in a really silly way to her. She’s starting to notice these letters all over […]

Tough Love

by Paul Schwartz

My son Malcolm was a bit of a bully in his younger days. He has been known as the kid who would push your kid in the stomach, sending them flailing backwards down the slide. Sometimes he was known as the kid who would bite your kid in the face, leaving a nasty looking welt […]

A Note From The Editor

Get Into Shape, Dad Style

by Chris Singer

“I do not like broccoli. And I haven’t liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I’m President of the United States and I’m not going to eat any more broccoli.” – George H.W. Bush “A man too busy to take care of his health is like […]

To expect or not to expect, Children will be children…

by Bboisvert

I often think to myself, “Am I expecting too much?” It seems as though the answer would be a simple one after so many years of parenting, but no such luck! Watching my children grow and develop through the years has given me something I couldn’t possible put into the right words but it hasn’t […]
