The New Normal

  We are currently living through extraordinary, catastrophic times, man. Not only that, but one of the worst parts about this COVID-19 novel coronavirus story is that we don’t know the ending.  Will it be happy, like the end of the TV show Friends? Or will it be disappointingly infuriating, like the end of the TV show Dexter? Who knows, […]

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 Uninformed Parent’s Guide to TikTok

  Today, we’re talking about what is TikTok! Now, if you’re over the age of 25, this may or may not mean anything to you. However, if you have kids under the age of 25, especially teenaged ones or younger, it should mean something to you. I am by no means a TikTok expert (TikTokspert?).  However, I have had some […]

Things To Do In Milwaukee With Kids

      Look, I get it. Milwaukee, Wisconsin doesn’t exactly scream family vacation destination. It’s a mid-sized Midwest city known for beer, bratwurst and cheese. How sexy is that?

The Problem With Fortnite

In my house, we have a Fortnite problem. My son B is kind of obsessed, people.  Lemme explain. Now, truth be told, I’ll admit to being a casual gamer.

Top 7 Cruising Songs (According to a One Year Old)

The best cruising songs, according to a one year old? How did we arrive at this point?! See, one of the big developments in the ol’ Daddy Realness household these last few months has been the ever improving vocabulary of little KJ. Between the indecipherable baby babble is the odd word or two that you can actually understand. And not […]

The Inverted Awkardness Conundrum

I’ve started to observe something with lil KJ. Something very troubling, that I never experienced with my other kids. He’s flipping the script on awkwardness! As he has grown out of babyhood, and is heading towards the terrible twos, he has a knack with putting me in less than ideal situations with strangers. What? It’s a real problem, people! Here, […]

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 […]
