Dad Bod is Not Destiny

For Dads who feel like yoga and stretching don’t do anything… For Dads who need to sweat to feel fit… For Dads who fall back to a single fitness goal: to bench press twice their weight… I’m not a trainer but I do know what doesn’t work: starting and stopping,...
Dads Come Prepared

Dads Come Prepared

The last couple of years have proven one thing. We have NO IDEA what’s coming next. Dads are trained to prepare for the worst. We were raised as boys to adopt a warrior mindset, ready to defend ourselves against bullies and all aggressors. As men, then as fathers, and...

Dog Poo for the Win!

Dog Poo for the Win!

Why was I laughing and smiling last night while I was cleaning dog poo out of the crevices of the sole of my hiking boot? Three times in the last week, I have stepped in dog poo (and one time in old chewing gum). This never happens. Just to be clear: I’m not lucky....
Field of Play

Field of Play

When I was eight years old, my whole week revolved around the best four hours of TV, all lined up in a slate of Saturday morning cartoons on ABC, our channel 6. I can still see myself in eager anticipation wearing my footie pajamas, gobbling a Frosted Cherry Pop-Tart,...
