Who’s Your Daddy? (Excerpted from PregMANcy)

With less than two months until PregMANcy, my memoir on family, faith and fatherhood hits, I thought I’d start offering some sneaks peeks from time to time of the kinds of stories you’ll find in it. Following is from a chapter called “Who’s Your Daddy?” which took place with some pretty interesting kids that we [Read More...]

The Eerie Efficiency of Disney

This picture, capping day three of theme park bliss, pretty much says it all. Almost, anyway. What you can just barely see on Zoe’s chin is the beginning of a three-inch scrape that travels from there and up along her left jawline.

There are the theatrical moment where she [Read More...]

My wife, Amy, and a few other women started this monthly tradition a while back at Milagro (the congregation we founded in our house seven years ago) when we realized we had a number of young girls [Read More...]

Fatherhood in my forties: WTF?

I’m officially over and done with my thirties. I’m also “surgically sure” I’m done having kids. But with a second-grader and a two-year-old in the house, I’m far from an emancipated empty-nester. By the time my mom was forty, I was driving. Yet here I am, wiping butts and noses. My hope is that I’ll [Read More...]
