Thoughts on fatherhood and what it means to be a father.

“Daddy, why is the sky blue?” “Daddy, does it have to thunder?” “Daddy, where did I come from?” Have you had any of these questions hit you yet dad? I have all of these plus more, many more. The big question is how are you handling and answering the questions coming at you? There is…

Isolation

Dads, have you ever thought it would be nice just to have some time to yourself?  You know, to come home and kick back and nobody, I mean nobody bother you for just a little bit?  That thought has often cruised through my mind and over the past 24 hours, I got my wish.  There…
