Happy Father's Day, Dads...

I would like to wish all the Father's out there a Happy Father's Day.  Yes, even you.  You are all very special.  With out Father's we would not be here.  The Father's of this world made us, but the DAD's are why we are who we are.  Almost anyone can be a Father, but it take time, patients, sacrifice and love to be a Dad.  A Dad is someone who is there for us as we grow and face life's challenges and problems.  A Dad is the one, who even thought it's tough on him at times, disciplines us to keep us on the right path.  It is easy say don't do it again,...more

He encouraged me to reach high, and celebrated every victory no matter how small. He engaged in the usual dad activities -- teaching me to ride a two-wheel bike, running behind me for several hours hanging onto my banana seat until I found my balance, and helping me with my homework....more

Play Like a Girl

“I get in trouble when I play princesses,” Mr. Embee revealed. I tried to pat him on the head and tell him it’s great that he tries, but I wasn’t sure what else to say at the time, except stuff like “well, you just, you know…It’s like playing house.” Because I’M A GIRL. Asking how I know how to play girl games is like me asking how guys know everything about sports cars. You just DO. It’s genetic. ...more

Real men wear pee

At the risk of sounding like an obnoxious Gen-Xer, people over 50 seem sort of astounded with my husband's level of parental involvement.
