How TV Brought Out The Kid In Me Last Night

Last night my wife had to work late and it was just me and the kids.  It was a planned "relaxing" night so there was no agenda (my favorite kind of night).  As we flipped through the channels and realized there was nothing on, I thought I would just take a chance on something.  It was the best decision I've made in a long time.

The Right Way To Eat A Pop Tart

This morning I came down to find that my son had gotten his own breakfast.  He was eating a Pop Tart quietly on the couch as I wiped the sleep from my eyes.  I had to do a couple double checks as I watched him eat.  I thought he was doing it wrong.  Turns out, the way he was eating it was smarter than anything I could have ever thought up.

Cow Tongue – It’s What’s For Dinner

When I was a kid, I remember my mom cooking italian sausage and rice.  My cousin kept sneaking into the kitchen to ask her what we were eating.  Frustrated, my mom finally said, "It's frogs and fish eyes!"  Needless to say, my cousin wasn't much in the mood to eat that night and he never asked my mom again what was for dinner.  I didn't think it was funny then.  However, it became funnier when I pulled it with my own kids today.

How Sick is Sick Enough For A Day Off?

When I was in school, it was near to impossible to get a sick day.  The only way to get out of school was for a dentist/orthodontist appointment, a death in the family, or if we were on our own death bed.  I've found that as a parent, I'm not as strict when it comes to that as my mom and dad were.

How My Daughter’s New Toy Turned Into “I Love You”

My daughter has wanted an iPod since Christmas.  She's been begging us like crazy!  Did I mention she's 7?  Well, I wasn't about to go out and spend $200 on a very small toy that I thought she might lose so I told her if she wanted one that she'd have to save her money.  Boy, did she ever...

Dad Lashes Out At His Unruly Daughter [VIDEO]

Life is different now than it was when I was a kid.  I have seen so many kids who just have no respect for adults and have no idea what it means to work.  Social networking has changed the way that they interact with the world.  Watch what happens when this girl posts a letter on facebook to her parents that she never intended for them to see.  **NSFW WARNING**  Lots of profanity!!

Brett Goes Back To Kindergarten For A Day

This week I got to do something that not every parent gets to do for their kids.  I got to read to my son's kindergarten class.  I don't get to read to my kids all that often before bed so this was a huge treat.  Not only do I get to read to my son, but I get to do it in front of his whole class.
