Kids Say The Darndest Things!

Kids Say The Darndest Things!

Most kids are a plethora of entertaining quotes. That would be a definite plus when you have three of them that work your nerves daily. I can’t begin to tell you the number of times one of them has made us angry, then immediately diffused the situation by saying something silly. The younger they are, […]

Spring Sports Has Sprung!

Spring Sports Has Sprung!

Although spring seems to be dragging its feet, spring sports are forging ahead. New and future parents take note: Having three kids that want to play spring sports can be quite the challenge, especially when we parents work unusual schedules. For the average 9-5 American family, ushering two or three kids to different sporting events […]

A Love Like No Other

A Love Like No Other

I had a bad night since we last talked. One of those bad nights where you really just need to vent to someone. Not because you want someone to tell you you’re right or wrong, but just someone to listen. It was late. My pop was asleep; my big brother working. So I couldn’t call […]

Change is Just a Part of Life

Change is Just a Part of Life

There’s a lot of quotes, songs, poems, books, etc., about change. Change brings a different feeling to everyone. Many people are afraid of change. Many don’t see the need for it. Some get excited about it; welcome it. No matter which category you fall in, none of us can avoid it. Yes, even those who […]

Boy, Aretha Was on to Something!

Boy, Aretha Was on to Something!

As I’m nearing my deadline this week, searching my brain about what to write about, it came to me like a daily theme on Sesame Street: The word for today is “Respect.” The day started with me getting up early to take No. 2 to school. He usually rides the bus, so I had to […]

The Importance of Positivity

The Importance of Positivity

Positivity is everywhere we look. At least, we are led to believe this. Posters throughout schools, friends post positivity quotes on Facebook, inspirational pictures at work (which I always found amusing considering the general morale in the building). I even get a “Daily Motivation” forwarded to my email from a friend. It could be perceived […]

Have Mercy!

Have Mercy!

Ice-quake-alypse 2014 was enjoyed by a full house at the Fisher home. And by “full house” I mean Michelle, Stephanie, DJ, Danny, Joey and Uncle Jesse ain’t got squat on us. And by “enjoyed” I mean “not enjoyed by anyone. At all.” It was a trying week for everyone in Augusta. I found myself feeling […]

Where has the love gone?

Where has the love gone?

My wife and I have been together for eight years this July, married for three of them as of this September. It’s not the point where I thought I’d be asking myself where the love went. I love my wife with every ounce of my being. She loves me. We get along great, most days. […]

We Are A Product of our Environment

We Are A Product of our Environment

It’s one of those old adages we’ve heard time and time again. And it’s one of the more accurate ones. The only problem is, sometimes we forget that we provide the environment for our children. Take a second to think about the environment you provide for your kids. I’m not talking about the one you […]

You’re Ruining It for the Rest of Us!

You’re Ruining It for the Rest of Us!

We, as parents, are fighting a never-ending battle with our kids. It only gets worse with age. Ours and theirs. Last weekend, I took our oldest, No. 2, to his spring football combine. It was held on the football field at Lakeside High School. It was in the high 30s that day with wind kicking […]
