Milk Money is not just for Moms

If you’ve been desperately looking for a father forum or a papa peer group, look no further! Step into the Daddy’s Den and join us in our journey through fatherhood. Who knows? You may relate to some of the stories…or all of them. Whether you are a new father adjusting to the new lifestyle, a revolutionary stay at home dad, or you just need some good guy time, this is the place to escape to.

In-dad-equate Part 3: Lucky to be Alive
I never hesitate to write and laugh about embarrassing details of my life and experiences as a father, but I dreaded writing this one. I knew I would have to in order to fill out this Bad Dad trilogy which was my stupid idea anyway so I could have just changed the...
In-dad-equate: The Bad Parent Trilogy
Pt.2 : Nighttime Neglect There are two situations I never experienced as a child or a young adult that I’ve now experienced several times as a father. The first is an Emergency Room visit and the second is a home visit from the police department. Now this was...
This Week’s Fantasy
I come downstairs and see my 5 year old practicing his piano. He’s practicing a song he wrote called “Riding the Waves”. It’s a little derivative of “Breathe Me” by Sia but he’s added some nice changes. If he can add a strong bridge, he’ll have a hit on his hands. And...
We held out as long as we could. And it wasn’t very long. I read a statistic one time that said something like 95% of boys play video games. 95%! How do you compete with that? My wife and I have two boys so our chances of keeping video games out of the house were...
Woah! You Kiss Your Mother With That Mouth?
Is it me? When did little kids get such big attitudes? Look I love my five year old son, but sometimes the mouth on this kid makes Damien from the Omen look like Opie from the Andy Griffith Show. He fights me on everything. He talks back. He disobeys. He throws...
Guys and Our Sports
Ah, October. The best month of the year in my opinion. The smell and feel of autumn is in the air. The leaves are exploding in vibrant colors turning the world into a dazzling, Disney-esque enchanted land. (Unless you live where I do. Thanks a lot, Southern...
We bought a minivan last week. Yup. I am now “that” guy. And proud of it. A few months ago I wrote a blog about turning 40. This is sort of a companion piece. I’m doing exactly what I should be doing at this age. I thought I was going to be old, fat, and miserable,...
But We Don’t Always Like ‘Em
Okay, we can all agree that we love our kids, they're the best thing that ever happened to us, they light up our lives blah blah blah. But to quote a friend's response to a particular angry Facebook post of mine about my five year old, "We alway love 'em, but we don't...
My Wife Thought I Was at Work, But I was at the Movies
I know that doesn’t seem like a very provocative title or interesting subject of a blog so let me raise the stakes a little. My wife is reading this for the first time too. When my wife and I have some domestic dust up, I’ve always been pretty good at turning it into...
Wanna Get Away?
As I write this, I am sitting poolside in Vegas with a Tequila and Tonic in my hand talking to five of my closest buddies about what to do with the money I just won from a bet on an NBA game. Okay that last sentence is not entirely true. I'm writing this 2 weeks after...
I've noticed one new thing about myself that I'm attributing to being a father. I make a lot more noise when I stand up. Okay, wait. Two things. I cry at the drop of a freakin' hat now! Growing up I was always a sentimental guy (to a fault), but short of...
