Recently, I started thinking if Paps and I would be doing our children a disservice by not allowing them to get use to using electronics.  Like, would it make them the equivalent of someone who is an illiterate adult once they get to college?  And I’m not just talking, using Word or Excel…Paint– I’m talking technology; X-box, […]

I feel like Rodney Dangerfield. Sometimes, I just don’t get any respect. Such is the life of a stay at home dad. We have to learn how to shine. I have met plenty of moms who think that me staying at home is such a great thing. Because let’s face it, it shouldn’t matter what […]

Potty training is one of the most challenging and stressful things… for the parents. For a kid, diapers are a pretty sweet deal, when you think about it. You don’t have to stop playing because somebody else is going to clean up your mess. Why would you want to give that up? Maybe that is […]
