  • 4 Things You Learn About Your Life When Your Baby Starts Crawling

    Gone are the days of a stationary baby. My wife and I lit a candle to properly grieve the end of the era when our parenting activities didn’t involve the word “chase.” I was originally so excited to reach this new stage. It’s so awesome to see your child gain new abilities – I feel like I’m witness to a real-life superhero origin story. But now that she’s been crawling for a few days, it’s really started to sink in what this new stage of babydom means for us as parents.  Yes, the game has changed and here’s what we’ve learn

  • Twin Dads Guide to Diaper Bag Essentials

    It’s relentless.

    And it’s downright evil.

    In fact, rumor has it, when parents say to their children, “you’ll get yours when you have kids of your own,” they in fact meant dealing with a teething child.

  • 6 small ways fatherhood stole my dignity

    When I used to imagine my life as a parent, I had all these fantasies of claiming my throne as the alpha male of my household. I was to be the king of the castle. But, as it turns out, the title of “king” brings with no real authority. Nope, the alpha in our household is a 14-month-old little girl. She’s ruling our lives in ways we’re just now figuring out. 

    As I’m reflecting on the past year and a half, I’m noticing little bits of my dignity that she’s stripped from me one piece at a time. Below, here are the ways I became a dad at my dignity’s expense.
