Best Gift EVER! The Peg Pérego John Deere Gator HPX Review

I know my Julia. She’s a girly girl but she LOVES helping outside, finding bugs, getting dirty, and driving grandpa’s lawnmower. So when birthday time rolled around what could be better than her own set of wheels for grandma and grandpa’s land? I considered a pink 4-wheeler. I considered a pink Barbie jeep.

Child Embarrassment. Do it early and often.

My friend Brad once said “I’ve always believed that the sooner your kids are embarrassed by you, the better. You’ll both be used to it by the teen years.” I think singing along and dancing is the easiest way. The photo above was taken mid-song. Me belting out the Beatles “Birthday” on the way to … Continue Reading

I’m not just a handsome, rugged, smart, talented, and humble guy. I’m also a very sensitive and loving dad. This post has nothing to do with that.

Make your own fun Wow Wow Wubbzy birthday cake

A few years ago Julia was way into Wow Wow Wubbzy, she thought he was cute and had a funny voice and whatever else kids like about cartoons (her love faded for a year but now she’s BACK into him). ANYWAY, did I mention that the year she was into Wow Wow Wubbzy I made … Continue Reading

Sugru Hacking A Horse Ear

You might be saying “How do I fix my daughter’s toy horse?”. There could be lots of reasons you’d be saying that. Maybe your kid broke it, maybe you broke it. I’m not saying I DID break it, I’m just saying kid toys are so freaking fragile. Maybe it was sitting on the TV stand … Continue Reading

Impromptu Cinnamon Rolls

In case Alton Brown, or Rachel Ray, or Jaime Oliver haven’t burned it into your head yet, here’s a news flash, kids love to cook. Really they just love to make a mess and sprinkle flour around, eat raw dough, and stir things for about 3 seconds, but THEY think it’s cooking. And in some … Continue Reading
