That Time I Won An Iris Award

A few years ago I could basically only push down upon the button and now here I am winning an Iris Award for Best Photography in parent blogging at the 2016 Mom 2.0 Summit in Laguna Niguel, California. In my speech I thanked exactly no one. Here’s a paragraph to […]

Big Easy Tears

I had been moved to tears on five separate occasions, and we were only 90 minutes into the 2-day conference. This was going to be one looooong-ass weekend. Deep, primal emotions were stirred in my (shrinking, but still large) 6’ 4” frame from the jump, without a single moment to […]

Tide & Downey’s The Princess Dress Commercial and The Modern Man

[Standing Ovation] I heard buzz tonight of a great new commercial from Chris at Daddy Doctrines. He, like me and many other dad bloggers, get all tingly-like when a major brand portrays us (us as in modern dads, a collective group of non-neanderthals who have spawned at least one child) […]

Modern Dads Inside and Out in Houston

Among the many needs of a modern man, well, at least this particular modern man, fresh air ranks high. Right up there with buffalo wings and chocolate milk. The Houston Four Seasons is lovely, of course it is, a modern pleasure palace if ever there was one, but even the […]
