Empty Nest

by RFarrell

Are men supposed to have the empty-nest syndrome? I’m starting to think that we are. The first day of my boys going back to school, I was fairly well put together, until I got home. My wife was gone at work, my step-son was nowhere to be found, and I was all alone in the […]

Tradition

by Shannon Carpenter

It has been implied that the life of a stay at home day is not very traditional.  That we have bucked the society norms and shunned our responsibility.  It hasn’t been so much as implied as out right said.  Man do I love being judged. But today I bring a different theory to the table. […]

A Look Inside

by Charles Wasleski

I seem to keep things to myself. I keep a lot of emotion locked up inside.  I don’t let a lot of people in and when I do, I cling to them so they will not go.  I know I have some emotional problems that I have to deal with daily. I know that there […]

Stay-At-Home Dads More Likely to Divorce?

by Al Watts

Time’s Healthland reported last month that stay-at-home dads are more likely to divorce. It is NOT TRUE. What’s even worse is the title they chose for the URL. That is downright shameful. The article, which has been picked up by several other sources, refers to a study led by Dr. Liana Sayer of Ohio State […]

Garden Tomato Pasta

by David White

Hey, guys!  The tomatoes in my garden are going nuts right now, and my windowsill is getting crowded (Any gardeners out there?).   I’ve been struggling to find something to do with them all.  Last week, I made up this pasta recipe.  It took 20 minutes, tops.  It’s full of flavor, healthy-ish (we use freshly […]

Traveling With Children

by RFarrell

By the time the plane touched down we were all exhausted. The screaming was non-stop, piercing, and maddening. I had a strange calm about the entire ordeal though. It was a “been there, done that,” type of feeling. To add to this young mother’s stress level there was a bit of turbulence on this particular […]

What Do You Do For A Living?

by Shannon Carpenter

What do you do for a living?  Several years ago, this question was easy.  I was a stunt car driver and a professional street fighter on the weekends. I wasn’t but it sounds way more interesting than social worker.  Besides, when you are asked that question, it’s like an open invitation to create an fictional […]

TV and Kids: Against Parent Recommendations

by Charles Wasleski

It has been stated in numerous tests, reports, polls, and surveys that too much T.V. can negatively affect a child’s development. Children under 18 months old should not watch T.V.  But here’s a shelf full of Baby Einstein videos. Children under 3yrs old should only watch only a half hour of T.V. a day.  Then why […]

Are You a Bobblehead Dad?

by Al Watts

Jim Higley loved collecting bobbleheads when he was a kid. He got a tickle in his stomach every time one of the spring-loaded smiling heads of his bobbleheads would jiggle. He spent more time than he cares to admit trying to get the head to bob for as long as possible. When Jim became an […]
