I have more questions than answers when it comes to the male brain. But let’s start small today, class… What’s the deal with “labels”? How does one little word cause so much tension and strife?

Dad-isms: Advice from My Father

Happy Father’s Day! It’s that time again…and since I did a post for Mother’s Day, it only seemed fair to write one for Dad’s day. But that’s not the reason I did it, of course: it just so happens that both of my parents have really good advice and memorable sayings. And, they’re two of […]
