We visit this charming place called Butler’s Orchard, a 60-year-old family-owned farm in Germantown, Maryland, whose annual “Pumpkin Festival” offers Pick-Your-Own-Pumpkin fields, hayrides, […]

Kitchen Club Kids – A Real Recipe for Success in Fatherhood, Food and Fun

The role of dads has changed through the years. We have truly taken control in the kitchen. Nowadays, there is no shortage of fathers who cook at home. In this world of work-at-home and stay-at-home fatherhood, and even dual-income households where household duties are shared between two working parents, a recent study found that 9 […]

The Infinite Power of the Dad-Blogger
The Infinite Power of the Dad-Blogger

There’s an old saying that goes, “Parenthood does not come with an instruction manual.” As I began my journey into fatherhood back in 2006, when my one-and-only child was born, I, too, found myself without a guidebook for the specific fatherly circumstances I had to bear. To this day, my fatherly life has been wrought […]

The ULTIMATE BATH SONG for Kids!
The ULTIMATE BATH SONG for Kids!

Parenthood and child rearing are all about transitions.  Let’s face it, life is one long series of transitions, from childhood to adulthood — from total dependence to absolute independence.

She Took Everything But the Houseplants…Including Our Son!

My wife and I have been going through a separation and divorce, and not one of those [quote-unquote] “amicable” divorces I keep hearing about…I’m sure you’ve heard of ‘em!
