Yesterday I overheard a 20-something sharing their wisdom about how a friend should be raising their child, and it made me laugh. Don't you love it when people without kids educate you on what you are doing wrong? I think that I used to be that guy. What a douche! Being a stay-at-home-Dad doesn't really allow the space for conquering … Continue Reading ››
I had a blast with last week's 8-bit icon stamps, and so did Little E. Nerd-ing it up made it awesome fun for both of us.

Do I get to watch something other than crappy reality TV? Yes, finally! Do I manage without her? Up until last night I would have said a rather cocky … Continue Reading ››
How the hell do you get a toddler to listen to you? I think that Little E has stepped onto that terrifying stage known as the Terrible Twos... and he's only 19 months. False advertising! I thought that I had weeks of innocent wide-eyed obedience left to enjoy, and all of a sudden he has developed … Continue Reading ››
