The 5am Show Hosted by Fidget & Little Man

The 5am Show hosted by Fidget & Little Man is something I’m forced to participate in regularly. Too regularly, actually. Most mornings, in reality. So before I dive in and describe The 5am Show, I’m going to provide some perspective by comparing […]

The Newbie Blogger Versus Linkies

Little White Lies: Belly Buttons and the Sucker Pit

Having read some wonderful parent confessions on Twitter at @HashtagDadSquad and their #DadFessions (check it out), I decided to get a couple off my chest.
