My “Me Time” is Gone, How Do I Get it Back?

You can’t. Well, at least not as much as you had before kids. Disappointed by that? Don’t be! Being a dad is an incredible calling and an amazing gift. However, that doesn’t mean that ALL of your time to yourself is gone. When my son was born, I quickly realized that large chunks of time […]

A Letter to My One-Year-Old Daughters

Georgia and Wynnie, Early in the morning on March 14, 2018, your mom and I set off for the hospital having no idea that we would be meeting you that same day. Sure enough, by 8:00 am you were both in this world and fighting! Your mom was an absolute warrior and that is no […]

New Year’s resolutions don’t work. At least that’s what the research says. Eat healthier? Read more books? Start exercising more regularly? These are all things that no doubt would add value to your life and lead to more fulfillment, so why do they fail? I bet Google will tell us:  I’m writing this on New […]

Best Learning Toys For 2-Year-Olds

With Christmas right around the corner, one of the things I’m most excited for is watching my son open gifts.

The Screen-Free Saturday Challenge

The technology we have at our fingertips has the potential to connect us to people around the world, complete tasks more efficiently than previous generations could even fathom, and has also changed the way we work. As someone who has never known a world without email, internet, and computers, I cannot picture what most jobs […]

Loving The Mud

Last night, my wife and I were sitting across from each other in our living room slouched in our chairs, taking a deep breath and taking in that moment when all the kids were asleep. We had just finished the nightly ritual of putting them to bed when one of our twins, Georgia, let out […]

The Zero Complaints Challenge

The average person complains 15-30 times a day. That’s insane! I’ve never tracked the number of times I have complained in a day, but my guess is that I would probably fit into that range. It might seem like a crazy stat because we may be complaining without even realizing we’re doing it. This week’s […]
