A quick note from me and the other dads here at Every Other Thursday… Happy July 4th and a HUGE thank you goes out to the men and women who are serving our country in various parts of the world as well as to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Today is a day [...]
Fellow Dads, next Monday is Valentine’s Day, which means that countless men across the country will be in the dog house for screwing up this Hallmark holiday. Here’s a cheat sheet so you end up sleeping in the same bed as your spouse next week.
Today is my seventh Father’s Day and it doesn’t get old. Hearing my wife and kids say, “Happy Father’s Day!” with gusto is probably the coolest thing next to seeing my kids get excited on Christmas morning, the day I got married and the birth of my kids. Nothing tops those moments and nothing will. [...]
Me and the fellas here at EoT spend a lot of time writing about our experiences as a dad, but without our wives, girlfriends, ex-wives, etc., we wouldn’t be dads (unless we went out and adopted on our own, which if you’ve read this blog enough, you know that each of us would be screwed [...]
Easter is such a great holiday for me. No, I’m not going to rant on Catholicism and religion. For me, Easter is about good food, good conversations and good times spent with the people that I’m close with in my life. It’s one of those laid back holidays where you’re not worried about a car [...]

I am always amazed that you folks find babysitters to watch your kids on that night of nights. During our entire marriage, not one family member, babysitter or friend has offered the gift of selflessness and offered to watch our kids. Not once. Zilch. Nada.
I’ve told many of my friends who don’t have kids that Christmas morning is much better when you have little ones that still believe in the guy in the red suit. The feeling you get by watching the expressions on their face and listening to all the “ohs” and “ahs” is simply awesome. Instead of [...]
This post will probably inspire some hate mail, or at least some grimaces, but I can’t stand the “holiday” picture card. There. I said it. Some time in the mid-1990s, these picture cards became the standard for families to send at Christmastime. I can’t deny their appeal and efficiency. They kill two birds with one [...]
O’Reilly and Dobson’s “War on Christmas” is a steaming pile of holiday bulls**t with a Christmas bow on top. Yes, Virginia, there is no War on Santa – organized or otherwise. Nor are religious minorities clamoring to own a piece of American’s holiday cheer real estate.
