The Acceptance Speech

This would have been far too long-winded, so much so that if there was to be a musical cue to wrap it up, to exit stage left even, we would’ve reached the second song in the ‘no seriously, get the F off the stage right now’ playlist. But here’s what […]

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 […]

The Problem With Dadvertising

Let me first admit to not always being the fighter my fellow dad bloggers are. With internet dust-ups like the Huggies commercial thing and the Amazon Mom program, I am often not in the ring punching away. I’m more of the cut-me guy, or the hot girl with the round […]

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) […]
