    Children First

    My children come first, above all, before anyone or anything.  Any personal relationship I have lost or will lose along the way, wasn't a relationship I would want my children to be around anyway. I am not with the other parent, I actually have two "other parents"...

    I Have a Couple of Beautiful Kids.

    My children are so funny, They wake up in the morning to play "store" with each other before one goes to kindergarden. When he comes home they start the game again. They are so full of energy and imagination and love. It is a wonder that we were all like that once. I...

    First Real Spanking.

    MAN did it break my heart. Seriously. I spent all day yesterday repeating that my kids need to listen to me and mommy. Lightheartedly, fiercely, all day, the same thing: LISTEN TO WHAT YOU'RE TOLD. Because they don't. They listen to ME, because I'm a fairly big dude, and...
