Color Blind

This past weekend, my wife and three kids took a mini-vacation to Chattanooga. It was a beautiful trip with no drama, happy kids, a cool town, lots of eating and an awesome hotel – which was Vera’s (age 4) favorite part. My kids love swimming and the pool at this hotel was awesome. We went…

Age of Innocence

As we sat on the couch staring at a blank non-working TV, Chef and I looked at each other. We weren’t talking about the pod. Not the blog. Not our next guest. We were just talking. Just a couple of drinks to take the edge off and chatter. In the moment, I realized that’s kinda…

Gymnasium Lifesaver

Last week I got a gym membership. Good for me right? Coach finally going to get back in shape. Pump. Those. Brakes. Yes, a work-out here n’ there wouldn’t hurt the ole’ spare tire. The gym I joined has so many benefits besides the fact that I can get my butt up on a treadmill…

Running From The Cops

A couple days ago, I was driving down an old country road south of Nashville near my secluded neighborhood heading to the playground. I had my three knuckle-heads strapped in the back of my 2010 Buick Enclave (not to brag) and I was burning rubber. We are talking at least 10 over the speed limit.…

Fear vs. Teaching

As a former teacher/coach and in light of some recent trending sports topics, I felt compelled to write this blog. Recently, a few college coaches have been catching some heat about some of their coaching techniques- mainly about how aggressive they are. I believe that this topic needs to be broached with a clear mind.…

Trick-Fil-A

This afternoon I took my kids to Chick-Fil-A. My daughter, Vera, took her first nap of the month while we were driving to Chicken Heaven. I captured this image of her during my 10 second drive thru wait: When we got home, we pulled into the driveway and Sleeping Beauty arose from her 20 minute…

Life Slaps

It’s been exactly one year since my family has been in Nashville. This year has been absolutely insane, by far the craziest year of my life. I’m ready to open up about it. Soon after our twins were born, Chelsea (wifey) found out that her company was going to be expanding to Nashville, TN. This…

Bath Poops

Last Wednesday I got my kids the flu shot. For those of you lucky enough to not experience the craziness that happens with kids the day after these cocaine injections, here is a bit of insight. The entire day was bananas. I’ll spare you of most of the details, but I do want to share…

Wasted Haircuts

On episode 6 of Bring Dad a Beer, I briefly mentioned the fact that I may never need to get my haircut again. Like ever. At my last haircut, I told my stylist that she is wasting good haircuts on me. She does an amazing job on my mop. Even though it probably came across…

Who’s Breaking In?

Wake up to the babies crying. Check my phone. Run upstairs and grab the twins. Come back down stairs and start removing large amount of fecal matter from their nether-regions. Look around the house- everything is a mess. This is how 90% of my days start. The first 30 minutes of the day are a…
