No Daddy's In The Room, Please
I'm sure you are mature enough to handle this. You probably caught your firstborn child in your rough, manly hands and then nuzzled him/her against your chiseled, manly chest while giving your gorgeous wife a postnatal foot massage. It's not you I'm worried about.Truth be told, I'd just be more comfortable if I [...] Continue Reading
When In Doubt, Bake
Of all the words to live by, this phrase is one of my favorites. Baking is a lovely way to unwind even if you only have half and hour, and you have something delicious to eat at the end of your "therapy" session.These buttery pecan cookies are perfect for a quiet tea with littles, a rowdy BBQ, or even skydiving.

Despite what the well-meaning dentist said when he pushed it into my hand I KNOW it's toxic. But what am I gonna do . . . show [...] Continue Reading

As I said back then, there was still a lot of healing to be done in her mouth. And as you can see in the picture below, that didn't [...] Continue Reading

Parents who know their kids are going to puke it up, that's who. :)But our weekend visits were far from hoity-toity. In fact, many evenings you'd find us in a field of fresh mown [...] Continue Reading
