Playing Second Fiddle Ain’t All That Bad

Playing Second Fiddle Ain’t All That Bad

My family got a surprise visit recently. It happened two Sundays ago. It was my daughter’s birthday. I’m enjoying the opening series of what would end up being a harsh Falcons loss to the Bengals… *Bing* My wife’s text alert goes off. “Uhhhhhhhhh,” she says. I bite. “What?” She continues, “Bio Dad is in Georgia. […]

This Is Going to Hurt Me More Than it Hurts You

This Is Going to Hurt Me More Than it Hurts You

In case you’ve been under a rock, the issue of spanking children has been front and center again this week. NFL star Adrian Peterson is the subject of some investigations concerning his decision to spank his 4-year-old child with a switch. There are several details about the case that could fill up this entire column, […]

Ten Things I’ve Learned About My Married Self

Ten Things I’ve Learned About My Married Self

This week marks the third anniversary for me and my wife. Not long compared to many people. But for a guy who never planned on ever getting married, it’s not too shabby. Marriage teaches you lots of things. But, I only have this one little corner of the Spirit. So I figured I could share […]

Keep Calm and Parent On

Keep Calm and Parent On

So a really cool thing happened last week. I yelled at my son. That wasn’t the cool thing. The cool stuff came after the yelling. I’ll explain… My schedule and that of my oldest son, No. 2, conflict greatly. He’s at school all day when I am mostly home doing very important things, totally not […]

That Ugly, Green-Eyed Monster

That Ugly, Green-Eyed Monster

My wife and I were recently enjoying a night out with a couple that are great friends of ours. We really enjoy our time with them… most of the time. You see, they are a really jealous couple. Extremely jealous! We could be having a wonderful night out, but when the admiring eye of another […]

Boys Will Be Boys… But Not in My House!

Boys Will Be Boys… But Not in My House!

“I got a .45 and a shovel, I doubt anyone would miss you.” That’s the stance many fathers take with boys courting their daughter. Or the ol’ convenient timing of the shotgun cleaning, which just happens to be taking place in the living room at the precise moment that the boy is coming to pick […]

Back to School!

Back to School!

In case you couldn’t tell from oh, say, every single Facebook post this week, Augusta kids have returned to school. To say that I’m excited for them to go back would be an understatement. To say they they’re excited to get back would be a lie. It’s not that I want my kids to go […]

Inside the Mind of a Man and His Quest to be Right

Inside the Mind of a Man and His Quest to be Right

I just drove to Ohio and back twice in a week. That’s roughly 40 total hours on the road, 2,500 miles, eight tanks of gas, half a dozen stops at fast food joints, a bag of bacon jerky (delicious!) and a bag of Sour Patch Kids Xploders (disgusting). The first round trip was to drop […]

Hot Fun In The Summertime

Hot Fun In The Summertime

As summer break is winding down and it’s time to start getting into “back to school” mode, I often look back to the things I wanted to do this summer that didn’t get done. Although this list is mostly comprised of fun things for my kids, this tradition didn’t just come along with the arrival […]

Publicly Shaming My Kids, It’s What I Do

Publicly Shaming My Kids, It’s What I Do

Spectacular embarrassment is my specialty. Ever since elementary school, I was good at embarrassing myself in astounding ways. Sometimes life likes to show me that I haven’t lost my touch. Last week I was provided the opportunity to prove that I haven’t lost my magic. I’m at No. 2’s second football camp for the summer, […]
