The Rock Sent Me A Video

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sent me a video. I’m not kidding. I got a personal message from “The Rock”. More on that in a minute.   One of my favorite things of 2014 was the ability to serve as spokesperson for Milk Life. I have had the opportunity, and privilege, of working with Milk for […]


Captain’s Log 2657: Exhaustion

Captain’s Log. Diaper Date 2657. Daddy Chronicles: Exhaustion. I don’t know how to express how tired I am. And, I’m not special, there are others equally as tired – Mrs. Captain for one. I think I have it figured out though (probably not): Life is a marathon of sprints. You see, I ran was on […]

Captain’s Log 2654: Making it to Break

Captain’s Log. Diaper Date 2654. Daddy Chronicles. Making it to Break: I have neglected my beloved blog out of necessity for the last two days. I am in peril. The Captain might not make it to break. The children are weary, sick, and cranky. They might make it to Santa’s Naughty list after all. We […]

Like A Hugo Boss

This past Friday, I had the opportunity to meet Reggie Wayne of the Indianapolis Colts at the Castleton Macy’s here in Indianapolis. Wayne is loved here, as well he should be- he has played his entire career here. And played well. When he made it into the aisles of Macy’s the chants started up – […]

The Power of Popsicles

Captain’s Log. Diaper Date 2649. Daddy Chronicles. The power of popsicles. I used to enjoy sick days. Ok, let me qualify that- I used to enjoy the idea of convalescing quietly while the rest of the world was busy doing their busy thing. There is something therapeutic about sitting in bed with a cup of […]


I Believe

I have already shared my experience with Santa. Well, today he is at it again, but this time he is getting a little help from the good people at Macy’s. I believe that Macy’s National Believe Day is one of the coolest things that I have heard about. Before I get into that, let me […]


My Swearing Minivan

I don’t swear around my children. If my mom is reading this, I don’t swear at all. And while I do know they are going to hear things from other people, I try to make sure that I keep their environment as clean as possible. So yesterday morning, the girl and I are getting ready […]

Christmas Mixtape: Track 2

Short post for Day 11. It has been a rough couple of days health wise in our house. And the sleep is lacking…NONETHELESS the posting must go on! The Barking Dogs “singing” Jingle Bells was one of my favorite Christmas songs, and thus it earned a spot in the pantheon of holiday tunes known as […]

Captain’s Log 2645: Toys Break

Captain’s Log. Diaper Date 2645. Daddy Chronicles. Toys Break. I don’t remember my toys breaking this often when I was a kid. Aside from the dog’s name, “Uh Oh” might be the most repeated phrase that I hear in my house. And it seems to always come from my son. Don’t get me wrong, my […]
