Mission Statement

  • This site has no agenda, and its author has no chip on his shoulder. He promises not to whine about "fatherhood equality," and he'll do his best not to sound superior. He is, afterall, just a dad. Instead, he promises to tell good stories about his three kids. That's about it.

Fun...but you haven't lived till you've acted out this exact scene scene with a full-grown, 19-year-old, 256 pound VERY DRUNK college roommate, who happens to have a plaster cast from his ankle to hip.

I am going straight to heaven just for that good deed alone.


All good fun that even words can't quite describe and grasp the full essence of what is happening. I relate it to shear TERROR with the endless possibilities of fecal matter spreadage!


Wow...this is why they invented pull-ups. I knew there was a reason. ;-)


Oh you are too funny. Arthur Murray. Hee hee.

You're really gathering info for Henry's wedding aren't you?!

Te quiero!


I have been through every gut-wrenching stomach-turning step of this story, this week! only our underwear are "robot" and "spiderman" and my bribe is a backyardigans DVD. other than that: exactly the same story. I SO relate.


We just went through the exact same stage in our house -- and our epiphany was also the result of a big bribe. Poo in the toilet..... at any price.


This is my first time at your blog. I laughed out loud. Thank you for writing this. This is parental reality.


All this talk of baby poo isn't helping my fear of procreation you know ;¬)

Excellent blog. Well worth ten minutes of my work time!


Oh dear! This story is definitely one for the an(n)als. Hilariously documented, Hank!

OMG I am laughing so hard. We went throught the same thing with our daughters. But it didn't seem nearly so funny back then.

Payback time is coming my friend. Don't forget, some day your kid might be wiping your butt too. ;)


Hi Folks

Just thought I'd post to say hi. I've been a lurker on here for a while and as a natural introvert, I thought it was time to "man-up" and make myself known.

Anyway, hopefully I can add some value on here and don't get flamed too badly ;-)

Cannon Fodder :-)
