Things that Every SAHD Should Know

by Shannon Carpenter

So far I’ve written posts  about How To Cook, What’s it Like to be a SAHD, and  A SAHD and His Man Bag.  I do this in an effort to educate.  To give my knowledge to those that are going down the same path or that are thinking about it.  Let’s face it, I’m a […]

When Caregivers Become The Cared For

by fleetsuper

As we get older many of us will be in the situation of taking care of our parents as they get older. It’s something that I have actually been dealing with for many years, but has become more acute of late. For me it started about 25 years ago when one day I saw my […]

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.

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 […]
