Me: Do you really like your coffee with nothing in it?
Brian: Yep. I like my coffee the way I like my women.
Me: [Silently giving him a stink face.]
Brian: What is that look for?
Me: I’m worried that what you are about to say will be really offensive.
Brian: I was going to say strong.
Me: I’m sorry that I ever doubted you.… Keep Reading!!!

Happy Father’s Day, Bri!… Keep Reading!!!
The boys have been asking to visit a police station for some time, now.
Since it was a Saturday (and less crowded), we decided to pop over and let the boys have some fun.
Brian made sure they got the full educational (and a bit boring at times…) tour.
Regardless of the slow moments, it was a lot of fun.
If you haven’t already, definitely check out visiting policies for your local police stations and fire stations.
It’s a … Keep Reading!!!
I think this is the year that fathers get their due respect. Parents who are present are starting to get noticed. Most mothers, whether they have a 9-5 job or “stay at home”, get all the blame and all the credit for parenting. She is seen as present (rightly so, most of the time) and taking an active role in the child’s upbringing. However, dads are generally ignored.

I realized on the way there that this time of the month was not one I was prepared for and I asked Brian to stop once we got into the small town and run in and buy some tampons.
Brian found my bounty and was in line to make the purchase when a rugged mountain man behind … Keep Reading!!!
We arrive home from Palm Springs, and within minutes I hear the hair clippers.
Then this emerges:
Brian: Silent and straightfaced.
Me: “Your mohawk is crooked.”
Brian turns around and goes back in the bathroom where I hear the clippers go on again.
Brian: “Fine, but I’m keeping the mustache!”
Me: “Quick, grab me some peroxide and hairspray!”
Me: “I need to make sure I am a good Loni Anderson to your Burt Reynolds.”
Brian turns around … Keep Reading!!!
My husband gives me the oddest compliments that make me smile and woo me all over again.
Brian: “You would have been a great lawyer.”
Me: “Aw, thank you…”
Brian: “You remind me of this guy.” Points to the TV where I see this guy:
(Prosecuter for the Jodi Arias case reaming the ridiculous psychologist on the stand.)
Me: “That was best compliment I think you’ve ever given me.”
What was the best compliment you have ever … Keep Reading!!!
I am proud to say my husband is speaking out and representing “attachment parenting” fathers in the February issue of Natural Child World.
The author of the article did a great job dispelling the myths presented back in May about the lack of presence fathers have in “AP” families, or that they have been dominated by their wives or significant others. It probably helps that Brian just happens to be a stereotypical “manly man” since many of the articles … Keep Reading!!!
