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. Some of their movies are more kid oriented than others, and “Finding Dory” absolutely falls into that camp. There are none of the gut wrenching scenes from “Up” here, nor is there any real underlying message …

Please Teach Your Son, So I Don’t Have to Warn My Daughter

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 …

Not Just a Box: A Guest Post (and Video)

The sun rises in the east, the Road Runner evades Wile E. Coyote, Nickelback is the worst, and children love cardboard boxes. The last one is a truth that I only learned by being a new dad. Even though I have heard other parents joke about their child or children loving toy boxes more than the actual toy, or that the best present …
