No Father’s Day

  It’s Father’s Day season, which means it is Father’s Day stories season. So, in honour of the day where we show the father figures in our lives some love, lemme tell you about that time when myself and some other dads got no love. I’ll error on the side of vagueness, to protect the innocent. J is in a […]

Gone Girl – Dangerous Situations Close To Home

My good friends at The Dad posted this on Instagram the other day: https://www.instagram.com/p/BiKhphohsla/ Pretty cool, eh? Yep, it’s me catching J in one of her random creative moments a while ago.  The feedback to that post was very positive, towards both her and myself. She’s such a vibrant child, and I’m an A-OK pops,  right? This is why it […]

McBrawlnald’s

Settle in for one of the craziest McDonald’s stories that you will ever here! You know that expression “the streets is watching”? Where, if you’re out on the streets, getting into trouble, you gotta be mindful of the fact that someone might have eyes on you? Along these lines, as a parent, good or bad, you quickly learn that you […]

Make A Dollar Out Of 15 Cents

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times – never underestimate the power of a child’s imagination. Even though the game’s changed, and kids nowadays are different than how I was when I was a little, this statement still rings true. B and J, for example, love technology. If left to their own devices, they could spend […]

No Good Role Models

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a few brushes with fame in my life. Of these celebrity encounters, one has always stuck with me, though. One which always made me question what makes for good role models. At a 1994 FIBA World Basketball Championship game, when I was a kid, NBA star Toni Kukoc happened to be in […]

An Obligatory Father’s Day Post

  Since my mom passed away last October, holidays like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day have me in a reminiscing state of mind. See, my dad was never in the picture, growing up. Like, at all.  I only had my mom. The single parent thing isn’t uncommon, of course, but back in the day, when I was little, at my […]

How To Make A Baby Stop Crying In Seconds!

So you’re with a baby and they won’t stop crying. You’ve fed them, changed them, busted out all of the tricks in your bag and they just won’t stop. Trust me, wtih lil KJ, I’ve been there many a time.   What do you do?   Last week, Daniel Eisenman posted this video on his Facebook page, which quickly went […]

Night Shift: Dealing With A Colicky Baby

After dealing with small kids for so long, I’ve honestly forgotten  how different they are to babies. The years really do fly by. B and J are little people now.  Baby KJ, on the other hand, is whole ‘nother creature.  My dad strategies (or as I call them dadegies. What? That’s catchy! What do you mean that’s not catchy?) which […]

A C Section Procedure Story

Announcement time! The other day, we welcomed another member into the Daddy Realness family.  Our baby boy KJ was born! If I do say so myself, he’s a pretty chill, happy lil dude. Now, like his siblings B and J,  KJ was brought out of K by a C section procedure.  Coincidentally, as one of the world’s preeminent dad bloggers, […]
