Embrace The Chaos -or- My Kids Are Jerks And That’s OK!

Embrace The Chaos -or- My Kids Are Jerks And That’s OK!

If I had a time machine in my twenties and I used it to travel into the future to see what my life would be like today, as a father to two little girls… I might have run for the hills when I eventually got around to the time I met my wife. No, but seriously folks, fatherhood is NOT what I thought it’d be […]

Letter To My Future Teenage Daughters

Letter To My Future Teenage Daughters

Before our daughters were born my wife and I set up separate email accounts for both of them. I wrote pre-birth e-mails to them talking about how excited we were they were coming and the preparations we were going through in anticipation of their arrivals. I thought I’d share this one. I wrote it to my future teenage daughters (who are 4 and 6 years […]

Spring Is In The Air

“What are you eating? I hope it’s not yellow,” I say to my 2yo playing in the snow as I sit on a reclining lawn chair on our deck typing away on my iPad in very unseasonable weather (10 Celsius/ 50 Fahrenheit). The smell of Spring hangs heavily on the breeze. Gotta love days like this! As I scan my snow-covered yard thinking of all […]

Sacrifice of the “Me”

I don’t know what’s considered a “normal” age to have children but I’d say my wife and I are considered “older” first-time parents. My wife was 40 when she gave birth to our first child and 42 when our second arrived. And since she’s a self-employed business owner, receiving no government assistance while at home with a baby, I took six months parental leave from […]

Just A Note Of Thanks!

One thing led to another and soon after we found ourselves in the emergency ward at Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga, Ontario. There’s little more frightening […]

Custom Wall Murals Now Available

Over the years I’ve had a lot of people (parents mostly) ask me if I do wall murals. As much as I wanted to say “yes” I could never afford the time to go to someone’s house and paint on their walls for a week or two. But that’s all in the past now. I’m happy to announce that I am immediately taking orders for […]

Miranda’s Sleeping Fairy Mural

On February 4th, 2011 I posted a blog about an idea I had for easy “stick-on” wall murals. Well in short I found a company called LTL Prints out of Philadelphia that can apply my artwork to a fabric “sticker” up to 7 feet in length/height. I did a 2 foot tall test design and got it back today. I applied it to my daughter’s […]

Makes You Wanna Go Back

After a hectic day this video made it all better. It’s so simple. So innocent. It makes me wish things weren’t so damned complicated some days in our adult lives.
