Here’s a fun little moment from last weekend. We’re waiting for the oldest kid’s soccer game to start. The three of us are kicking around a ball. The ball rolls past me and towards a couple sitting with their dog.
The guy stops the ball, goes to kick it back to me, and looks up and goes “Chris?” We were both startled at the moment. He was surprised to see me at the field and I was shocked because I’m forty minutes from home and didn’t imagine running into anyone I knew.
His name is Kevin. He’s a former semi-pro basketball player. He’s 6’10. I’m 5’7.
After talking for about a minute, the youngest walks over and goes “Dad, do you know him?” and I explain that yes, I do.
She pauses and says, “Ok because you look like a crumb standing next to him.”
Let’s get on with the tweets and memes…
drinking in my 20s made me feel sexy and fun but drinking in my 30s just makes me feel fat and tired and no one told me life was going to be this way clap clap clap clap

I'm so glad I taught my kids how to play checkers, giving them yet something else to fight about

Crazy how my 5yo can explain something in painstaking detail unless it’s anything I specifically asked her.

Someday my kids will leave home and I’ll miss hearing them bicker with each other, but today is not that day.

“I was today years old” loosely translates to “I just found out I’m a fucking idiot”

You don’t have to feed your kids organic food harvested with unicorn tears to be a good mom.
You don’t have to make a home-cooked meal every night to be a good spouse.
And you sure as shit don’t have to have shredded abs and a non-jiggly ass to have a hot girl summer.

My Wife: Don’t look at your phone while driving!
Also my wife when I’m driving: What do you think of these oatmeal colored carpets?

Our youngest boy has informed us that he has a girlfriend, so now my wife wants me to have "the talk" with him.
I'm pretty excited because the last time I had "the talk" with my oldest boy I picked up some pretty good pointers.

Let’s focus less on the part where I forgot to bring bathing suits, hats, and sand toys on our beach vacation and more on the part where I remembered to bring the kids and their underwear

When I think about how my mental and physical well being impacts my children’s lives it’s a hell of a lot easier for me to take my own needs seriously.

My 2yo seems to get the phrases “fell down” and “deliberately thrown on the floor” mixed up a lot

It’s so cute how maps tells me to head west.
Am I headed toward the Chick-fil-A or the Burger King? I’m not a compass.

I want all three of my kids to be able to be active in sports, but I’m also not a millionaire so you see my dilemma.

My 7 year old: Mom, I like your hugs the best because your tummy is as soft and squishy as Play-Doh.
I turned my womb into an apartment for THIS?!?
