Noah

Noah

This was the hilarious conversation I had with my child to help him finally get what I've been going through...

Just when I was ready to throw in the towel on my son's and my entire disappointing weekend together, an unexpected moment made everything change in a hurry...

New to the city, my scared (and now awake) child asked what had just shaken the entire house. Rather annoyed by it myself, I decided to tell him... the truth.

It was one of those desperate and impossible moments that as a dad, I've hoped my entire life to never find myself in...

What was quickly becoming one of the hardest nights I've ever had as a parent took a course all its own after these words were involuntarily shouted by my kid.

Scared as hell, this man showed up to do the Tough Mudder with our team without the use of his legs. But there's more to the story. He's also my kid's stepdad.

All the sudden Noah is eight years old. What the. How the. Who the. When the. Where the heck did the time go?! Haha. This is a poem I wrote him on his birthday.

Today I had to go back to the very first SDL post for some reason, and I couldn't believe the first pics I ever shared of Noah and of me compared to now...

The story of when everything had been put on the table. And the house had been turned upside down to find what we could. Somehow, we came up one penny short...

Wow, I took a huge stocking stuffer risk and it paid off! I just never guessed it would have been his #1 favorite thing inside of that goodie/toy filled sock!
