About this site

Once upon a time in a land far, far away, there was a man with one wife and two girls. He loved all three of them equally. I’m that man.

I’m a dad who is certainly no better than any other man is at being a parent and that’s why I like to share our stories. I, like you, figure things out on the fly. So if I can share with you a trick for something you may experience down the road, I’d like to do that.
