A Little "Pump You Up" Jam

Being a dad isn’t always easy. You know that. If you don’t, this blog isn’t for you. Sometimes fatherhood is our army, our navy, our cross to bear, our life, our uphill both ways in snow, our sacrifice for the sake of something better.

Sucks At First, But Glad I Did It

Recently I watched my 2 year old for an extended period of time, all by myself… no wife, no grandma, just me.

When my wife told me she’d be taking off for several days and I’d be on my own I was pretty bummed. I mean, my son is great, but he’s not always so great, right? You know what that’s like.
