Where I Am Going – Part 2

It’s that time of year that people talk about resolutions, but that’s not where I am going. I have goals. There are a few things that I want to attempt in 2018. Some new adventures and some old ones. This Dadlete has a ton of Russell athletic gear and it would be a shame to […]

Where I Have Been – Part 1

It’s important to consider where I have been. The fluorescent fanny pack and I have had some fun adventures. Aside from the physical workouts that I’ve had, I have learned a great deal about myself as well – or in some cases, I have remembered things about myself that I have long forgotten. Since the […]

CozyPhones Solves the Headphone Conundrum 

  CozyPhones solved a problem for me. That’s right – this cute little Froggy headband solved one of my problems. And if you have kids, I’m guessing you have had this problem too. There are two inherent problems with things that emit sound – 1. Not everyone wants to hear the sound. 2. You can’t […]

A Dadlete Under Where?

A Dadlete Under Where? I used to be an athlete. In my head I was an elite athlete. In reality, I was simply average. But I did all the things – I lifeted, I ran (when I had to), I did plyometrics, I lifted, I threw heavy things. I practiced, practiced, and practiced. I remember […]

A Talk about Responsibility

I have partnered with Ask, Listen, Learn for this post. Though it is a sponsored post, my words and thoughts are my own.   Responsibility comes in a number of forms. Of course there is the act of responsibility, but, as parents, sometimes responsibility occurs in the form of a conversation. My daughter is 9. She […]
