by Bryan Alkire

Once again my wife is leaving on a work trip. Her job takes her all over the US to different offices and for days at a time. (or almost the entire month of August, God Help me) This means that I become a temporary single parent. 24/7 I am the last line of defense between […]

Are You Sharing Too Much?

by Bryan Alkire

Are you sharing too much? Am I sharing too much? I mean a quick search of my name and you will find a Facebook page, a Twitter account, an Instagram account, and my personal blog.  On all of them, you will find stories, details, and pictures of my family.

When I became a father for the first time I was somewhat relieved […]

The Only Dad.

by Bryan Alkire

Sometimes I forget. Sometimes I get too comfortable and accustomed to my usual play groups. Sometimes it just slips my mind that I am the only dad. My daughters and I tend to frequent the same classes and parks. We are known there. It isn’t a big deal that I am the only dad. But when we go […]

I’m driving home from my first National At-Home Dad Network Convention, high as a kite. I can’t stop talking about it and, fortunately, I have my wife with me to smile and nod at my enthusiasm.
