(Parenting humor, not advice. No one knows what they’re doing, anyway.)
Welcome! Thank you for checking things out. My name is Greg. I am a father, a husband, a coach, cook, chauffer, mediator, an occasional hostage negotiator.
What do I do?
I write stories about my adventures as a parent. This includes children hiding under tables when I’m trying to help them with homework. There are 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.
Writing is what I do.

No spam, just laughs and digital camaraderie. I promise
What else do 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.
Remember, this site has stories for parents, not advice. No one really knows what they’re doing, anyway.

Advertisements The Oppressed wanted to go to King Richard’s Faire earlier this season. I’ve heard of it, but I had never been there. She was very excited to go. Wife even got her a Rennaissance-style dress to wear for the day. I’m not sure what she was most excited about. Going to the fair or … Continue reading “Taking Your Children to King Richard’s Faire”
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 to 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.
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.
