Look how pensive I am!

I don’t know what I’m talking about. Seriously. Don’t come here looking for advice. Unless you have questions about ‘80s era sitcoms, I don’t have any answers. If anything, come here weekly, daily, neh, hourly, looking for self assurance. Come here to reassure yourself that you’re doing this parenthood thing better than I am. To reassure yourself that no matter how lost you feel, there’s someone out there that’s way more lost. Someone navigating parenthood with an outdated GPS, no map, and an overinflated sense of direction who’s too stubborn to ask directions. If I can give you that sense of peace of mind, that there’s a dad out there that’s more clueless than you, if I can help you sleep just a little bit better knowing that at least your kids aren’t being raised by a complete jackass, then maybe I’ve done you and the world a solid. You’re welcome.

  3. I have not nominated you for any awards but your wisdom did make me spit beer on my boxer shorts, for whats its worth, and so on.

  4. I heard you on NPR today. I’ve never lied to my kids . . . about warthogs attacking them if they stay out after 6pm. And I was really happy for the gentleman who called in to say he has never lied to his kids and that his kids have never had ANY behavior problems. WOW! Enjoyed reading the blog tonight.
