Adventures in Fatherhood and Parenting by a Stay at Home Dad

(Parenting humor, not advice. No one knows what they’re doing, anyway.)

Welcome! Thank you for checking things out. My name is Greg, and I am a father, a husband, a coach, cook, chauffer, mediator, an occasional hostage negotiator.

I write stories about my adventures as a parent. I write about children hiding under tables when I’m trying to help them with homework. I write about meals that take hours to cook and seconds to refuse. Have you ever had a great idea for something to do with the kids, only to have them refuse to partake? I have, and while the day was traumatic, it turned out to make a pretty good story for you to read.

One of the many battlefields.

Writing is what I do.

In addition to being a parent, I am also a foster parent and own a dog and a cat because my wife and I just can’t get enough excitement. Do you like beer? I like beer! Oh my gosh! We have so much in common!

Grab a beer and click on some stories, they’re all true. Some are funny. Hopefully, reading these will make you realize you’re not the worst parent out there (That’s me. Ask my kids.) and hopefully you’ll be entertained while you think about that last time you ruined your child’s life by not making their favorite meal or didn’t buy the cool sneakers.

Have a beer. You may need it after reading these stories.

Remember, this site has stories for parents, not advice. No one really knows what they’re doing, anyway.

I’ve been a stay-at home parent for over 10 years. There are a lot of websites out there that claim to give advice on how to raise children and keep it together. I know better. Nobody knows what they’re doing, just ask your children. Instead of pretending t know it all, I just tell you stories about my daily struggles to make it from breakfast to school to practice to dinner to bedtime. Along the way, there will be bruised bodies and egos, but it will be a great story someday and that’s why you’re here. You’re here to read stories about my struggles and learn that everyone is going through the same thing you are and maybe, just maybe, you’re not the worst parent on the planet.

I am a husband, a father, an afterschool tutor, and a youth sports coach. I am a scotch and beer connoisseur. I am a storyteller, a writer, and now I am a motivational speaker. Of course, my work is not to really motivate you with my grand tales, it comes from the stories about the Homework Wars, the practices gone awry, and the well-intentioned road trips that end with my wife and I collapsing at the end of the day and making sure everyone is alive and accounted for. My skills in writing coupled with my skills in parenting combine to give you this website that will amuse you and make you see you’re not doing such a bad job. You’re welcome.

No spam, just laughs and digital camaraderie. I promise
