Yes, Bullies Win

I did not want to get out of bed this morning. I did not want to face a day so very different than the day before. I did not want to take my kids to school, and risk having them deal with uninformed kids gloating about who won and who lost. I wanted to protect them.…

Stuff that matters: Read to your kids!

In the midst of other major projects, I almost forgot to post today! I am setting myself up as a freelance narrator and voice over artist to fill the gaps between performance gigs and book signings, and that is taking a lot more work that I had counted on at first. Now, hopefully everybody here…

Bullying: Adults are Guilty Too

“World’s Best Dad!” – Not me…

Today is arguably one of my least favorite reoccurring days of the year. Maybe tax day comes close, or the day I have my yearly physical (though seeing as how that is a practice I just started last year, I don’t even know if we can count that as reoccurring yet), but really Father’s Day…
