What Do We Do When The Grown Ups Are Behaving Badly?

It’s been a while since I’ve wrote something. I’ve been feeling a little drained lately, and I’m sure it’s a combination of many things. However, I would be lying if I didn’t blame a little piece of it on the current political climate. Especially the election that is looming over our heads. Don’t worry, this …

The 5 Same Conversations Every Parent is Having With Their Kids…

My wife and I took our daughter to a kids theme park last weekend. She had a lot of fun, and apparently cannot get enough roller-coasters or thrill rides in her little four year old life, granted they were kiddo sized rides, but those spinning turtles were more intense than I expected… As we were wandering …

3 Frustrating Views of Dads and Fatherhood

There have been a lot of articles that talk about gender roles, mom’s role, dad’s role, dinner rolls, etc. A lot of positive change has come from these discussions, and men have benefited a lot from it as well. Dad’s no longer have to be the stoic, hard as a rock figure of the mid 1900’s. …

DadLunch Goes To The Movies: A “Finding Dory” Review

I am a pretty big fan of Pixar. They have a knack for combining good stories with amazing animation.

Also, I was told this should have a trigger warning, so continue with that in mind. I promise to go back to writing about something lighter next time like vomit …

Breastfeeding in Public: When Did We Lose Our Minds?

We, as a nation, have lost our minds about breastfeeding. Specifically the act of breastfeeding in public. I don’t remember when a mother breastfeeding their child in public became an issue. Maybe I wasn’t as sensitive to it before I was a father, or maybe it’s just been pushed to the forefront lately by our obsession with outrage for the …

Surround Your Children With Good People and Watch Them Become Good People

Sometimes it is just a very pleasant experience to sit back and think of all the good people in your life. Seriously, just reflect on the family, friends, and the people that blur that line. Even people that you don’t consider “close” can surprise you. Last weekend was my daughter’s birthday, and today was our …

How Having a Preemie Changed My Perspective…

My father once said to me something that always stuck with me, and now that I have my daughter I understand it better… “When you are single, your biggest fears are ‘What terrible things can happen to me?’ When you are married, your biggest fears are ‘What terrible things can happen to my wife?’… But …
