As a dad, there’s nothing better than hearing from other people who can empathize about or articulate some truth from the wild world of parenting. It helps you understand that fatherhood is a shared pursuit and, well, that crazy stuff happens to every parent.

My 3-year-old's favorite stuffed animal is a puffin.
She named him Muffin.
Not sure what kind of doctor I'm raising, a vet or a Seuss.

Hide & Do Not Seek
Wife (upstairs overseeing bedtime prep): "DOWN! SIT! BRUSH!"
I have no idea if she's talking to the dog, the kids, or all three, but either way I'm staying down here.

Drugs Not Hugs
