We hate to be embracing gender stereotypes, but seriously, why is it that when someone accidentally puts a baby into the ceiling fan during a game of “baby toss” it’s always the dad? Dad’s love their kids, there is no denying that but that love manifests itself in some crazy ways. Which is why if you’re thinking about leaving your children alone with Dad for a little bit, be prepared for the hilariously bizarre shenanigans men get up to when they decide to “play” with the children.

Can read a trail map, a music score, Chaucer, and a balance sheet. 1 part executive, 1 part entrepreneur, 2 parts geek, and 3 parts Dad. Love lime juice on chef salads and Rudy's BBQ sauce on my brisket.Some days I amaze myself. Other days I look for the phone while I'm still talking on it. On amazing days, I produce technical writing that helps people get things done.
