The Night The Fish Came To Dinner

by Charles Wasleski

Princess: What’s for dinner? Me: Fish. Mommy thawed it out. Princess: I don’t like it! Me: You’ve never had it before. And it doesn’t taste like anything. Princess: *whimper* (stomp stomp stomp) Well, that was encouraging. Dinner time: Baked Tilapia, in a nice Olive oil and Apple juice marinade. Chicken flavored rice with a side […]

The SAHD and His Man Bag

by Shannon Carpenter

I carry a bag.  No man, it’s ok to admit it.  And chances are, you carry a bag to.  I know, it’s tough and yet it’s still true.  Sure, we all call it different things.  It’s a backpack.  Or it’s the child’s satchel.  It’s the “football.”  Sure man, whatever you want to tell yourself to […]

Dear Mom, Tigger Shrunk

by Msager

My daughter, Claire,  walked into the kitchen the other day carrying a stuffed Tigger. It was a big Tigger. It used to be a giant Tigger, that is when she was smaller. He stands about 30” high. I remember when he and his friends in the 100 acre wood were used as a kind of […]

No! Dad!

by Abowling

by Mike Poff

Mornings around here start out with a nearly peculiar amount of peace and quiet. Around 5am inside our mountain home near the Crest of the Blue Ridge little stirs in the wee hours. That is except my wife Pam who by my wake-up has been rolling for an hour or more.  Her fleeting fingers in […]

Get Into Shape, Dad Style

by Chris Singer

“I do not like broccoli. And I haven’t liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I’m President of the United States and I’m not going to eat any more broccoli.” – George H.W. Bush “A man too busy to take care of his health is like […]

To expect or not to expect, Children will be children…

by Bboisvert

I often think to myself, “Am I expecting too much?” It seems as though the answer would be a simple one after so many years of parenting, but no such luck! Watching my children grow and develop through the years has given me something I couldn’t possible put into the right words but it hasn’t […]

Review of “The Evolution of Dad”

by Al Watts

Last week I was given a unique opportunity to view an advanced screening of the documentary, “The Evolution of Dad,” and more than once I had to wipe a tear from my eye. It made me think about the kind of dad my dad was and the kind of dad I am to my kids. […]
