  • Well, my fellow parents, we’re all at home.  And we’re all stuck at home with the kids.  I can personally say it’s been very challenging.  (read:  painful!)  BUT it’s also been pretty rewarding.  At our house, we’ve actually found time to communicate a lot more than we would have otherwise.  Plus, the kids are getting me to play more Fortnite!  This game used to be the bane of my existence (that’s all my kids would do for 8 hours a day), now it’s become

Stark Raving Dads are formed in the fiery forges of constant motion and catastrophe. With kids – we learn we may never have a free moment again, Mom no longer appreciates our sarcastic humor, and that we weren’t completely ready. But you are not alone! There are millions of Stark Raving Dads just like you – utilizing a strong sense of self-preservation, and conveniently overlooking loaded diapers.

 

This blog is my chance to share with other Stark Raving Dads. Its also a great spot to “test drive” new poems, spotlight the “challenges” of fatherhood, and ignore the peanut butter smudges on my armrests. My parental control is being tested everyday… and it all happens – right here!

Anyway, the coronavirus has really thrown us all for a loop.  It hasn’t been easy.  It will probably stay topsy-turvy for many months to come.  However, this doesn’t mean you can forget Dad on Father’s day!!!  So if you’re reading this… please don’t forget that “Stark Raving Dad” makes an......

  • This is the post I was planning to post in the beginning of NOVEMBER!  Needless to say that didn’t happen… because of course, the holidays “happened”.  And it’s just now, that I’m finally looking back to realize I never quite finished my post.  So without further ado – my homage to our new garbage disposal… Today, I’m excited.  No, I’m THRILLED! to be getting a new garbage disposal!  That’s right – a garbage disposal!!  You never realize how important something is until it’s not working.  And in our household a garbage disposal is king!  I couldn’t believe how much the dishes backed up, once we couldn’t start using the sink.  Basically, a backed-up disposal means the sink is filled – which means its overflows into the dishwasher  -which means no one’s doing dishes.  Which I kinda new, but never really realized how catastrophic it could be.  Yeah… it’s been a major mess.
