Mike Vs Prescription Drugs: A Shoplifting Story

      Over the years, I’ve come to realize that being a parent comes with many evolving job titles,  depending on the situation.  Dad, chauffeur, doctor, fan, whatever. You know, it’s always something.  So with that said, today’s post is about the time that I went from Geek Squad wannabe, to Uber Eats driver, to legal drug runner, to […]

Mike Vs. Walmart: Sign Of The Times

    Alright, so given everything that’s been going on in the world lately, I figured I’d hit you up with a feel good story…..kind of!  A little positivity for y’all……probably!  The underdog steps up to the big dog, and comes out on top…..I think! Without further adieu, here is the tale of Mike versus Walmart!   It all started […]

Mike Vs Playstation 5 – A Christmas Story

      With the holiday season upon us,  a Playstation 5 video game console is sure to be at the top of many a child’s wishlist. Unfortunately, many a child are going to be disappointed. Since their release last year, PS5s remain incredibly difficult to find. As luck would have it, I managed to come into the possession of […]

Remote Learning Tips For Parents. Sort Of.

      Happy New Year! Mid-January is not too late to say that, right?  Anyhoo, 2021 was supposed to bring about big changes from 2020, and so far, it has! For example, around here, instead of being able to send our kids to physical schools, everyone is doing online learning, because the schools have been shut down! New year, […]

Playground Rules in The New Normal

    What’s poppin’! Unlike Jack Harlow, I don’t have a new whip to hop in. However, like Jack Harlow,  I have spent a lot of time locked in. Well, figuratively speaking, because of COVID-19, and not having many places to go. Anyhoo, today we’re talking playground rules during these unique times. You see, taking things step by step, day […]

Three’s Company

    Today’s post is brought to you by the number three. You see, three is a big time number in our house, especially recently, as our third child, KJ, recently turned three years old! Since having a third child, we have been regularly asked three questions: You have three kids?! This is always asked in a shocked voice,  by […]

The Canusa Games

It’s a sunny, muggy Friday afternoon in August, and I’m standing on the field of Atwood Stadium, in Flint Michigan, with my family. It’s busy here, full of kids and adults interacting with each other.  There’s an excitement in the air, too. Lots of laughter. Lots of smiles. We exchange pleasantries with a complete and total stranger. Soon after, the […]

The Kids Are Alright

Even though that they lost, they were all still winners, in the end. Now, that probably sounds like the ending to some cheesy, cliche sports story. It’s not, though! It’s the beginning to this non-cheesy,  non-cliche sports story. Trust me, it’ll make sense later.   I don’t know about you, but I worry about what kind of people my children […]

The 2018 Wrap Up

What up, my dudes! Another year has almost come and gone, and looking back on it, I see that it’s been an interesting one, for real.  Through the many trials, tribulations and experiences (some of which I’ve written about here), I’ve really learned a lot. For example: – I spent some time behind the scenes, in the audience, and in […]
