Ode to teachers: Thank you for not selling my children online

Last week we got one of “those” calls from PC’s teachers. In her sweet voice, she told me how he had a rough day. “It’s like he’s been shot out of a canon while on double espresso shots,” she claimed. I totally believe her. Can you imagine teaching more than a dozen kids like my […]

All about that basTE: a true story

From Penn: This has been such an amazing year for me.  After nearly two decades of working in TV news,  and not getting home until the kids’ bedtime, I discovered something I honestly haven’t ever been a part of…. The nightly family dinner. I mean, we had dinners together on weekends and vacation, but there […]

More couch time = less holiday stress

This blog post and video are made possible because of a partnership with HSN. They rock! Call me crazy, but at this point in November I’m actually craving the craziness of the holidays. We are hosting Thanksgiving dinner for nineteen people at our house and I. CANNOT. WAIT. And let’s face it — I haven’t […]

This dad FINALLY gets to celebrate Halloween (and he’s doing it in a MOOSE costume)

Post from Penn: I can’t tell you how psyched I am about Halloween this year.  Not because of the near perfect weather, the chance to check in with neighbors, the fun block parties, or the increasingly skimpy adult female  costumes (whoever is responsible for this trend deserves a medal, in my opinion – Kim begs […]

Baby Got Class! A back-to-school parody

If there was one of those Facebook relationship status options for my children, at this point in August, I would choose “needs to see other people.” On both sides — we literally need to see other people. It’s been an amazing summer but for our children and ourselves — we are ready for the routine […]

MY WIFE COMES HOME IN AN HOUR – A True Story

It is the panicked thought that goes through every dad’s mind, one hour before your family comes back in town.  About once a year, dad is left home alone, and  many of us take that opportunity to revert to our primal selves – We eat horrible food, we don’t make the bed, we meet up […]

This is what happens when we are stuck in July 4th traffic

Momentous occasion! It’s my first blog entry while driving a car. This voice dictation thing is amazing I hope it doesn’t get any of the warts wrong. (Kim takes the phone out of his hand here — even though we are in standstill traffic) Anyway, we were driving from Washington DC to North Carolina stuck […]

The Perfect Father’s Day?

Coming up on the celebration of my 8th one of these, I ask this question – what is the perfect Father’s Day?  We all have our different answers, and our answers have probably changed over time.  For me, five years ago, all I wanted was golf and sleep.  But as the kids get older, sleep […]
