I Just Blinked

Time seems to pass in the blink of an eye. I listened to an interview with Barry Gibb the other day — the handsome Gibb brother from the BeeGees. Yes, I know, some of you have probably never heard of the BeeGees. He sounded old, which made me feel old, and I wondered where the […]

Meet Mandy

Milwaukee is in my bloodline. I’m a proud product of a hardworking family dedicated to serving the city of Milwaukee and one of seven valedictorians in my class at my Milwaukee public school.

Five Things I Won’t Stop Doing for My Kids

“Stop doing these 17 things for your kids right now, or you’ll fail to raise independent, successful human beings!” Parents have been inundated with these types of articles lately, and I’ll be the first to admit I have some habits that fall into the “naughty” category. Packing my kids’ lunches? Check. Cleaning up after them? Check. Making sure their […]

Do Dads Worry?

My mind tends to wander and over-think about a lot of things. Sometimes when I’m in the car driving to work after dropping my kids off, I can’t get the stream of consciousness to stop — Did I pack enough food for the girls for today? Did I remember my lunch? Where is my water bottle? […]
