6 Little Things That Make Being a Dad The Best Job Ever

It would be easy for me to throw open the front door each weekday morning from mid-August to mid-June and send my daughters off to the bus stop with no more effort required than an honest smile and a gentle wave of my right hand. I don’t do this though, […]

How To Make School Lunch Masterpieces

You’ll have to take my word for it, as none of the pieces have yet to be published, but I’ve been writing quite extensively about the deep culinary ditch I currently find myself lying semi-unconsciously in when it comes to school lunches…and after school snacks…and dinners.

Running In Sandals And Peeling Eggs At 2 AM

The wifey’s family reunion was yesterday, in a park near where I grew up. In fact, pavilion #4 was within a stone’s throw from the gruesome fish-hook-in-my-knee-incident of my youth. And no, I’m not 100% over it. The fish hook that is, not the reunion. That was fine enough. Stupidly, […]

New School Year, New School Lunches

The Bear isn’t a buyer. She’s a packer most days but once a month (or so) when the cafeteria calendar promises an intersection of healthy and fun, she gets to punch in her PIN and be served by the lunch lady. I’m pleased with this month’s selections, they show some […]

The Last Weekend Before The Last Weekend Before School

The Bear is 8 days away from 2nd grade. Am I battling a conflict of emotion?  Not really.  I’m battling a fear of mayonnaise. I’m 8 days away from having to get my ass out of bed before 7am.  8 days away from making lunch before I eat breakfast.  Mayonnaise […]
