I'm a happily married dad with two amazingly awesome boys. I met my wife in college and only took seven years of dating before I finally popped the question. So yeah, I'm a bit impulsive.
I'm a freelance writer and a daddy blogger who can't get enough of the Muppets, comic books, Legos, and video games. Oh, I once ate 56 pieces of raw fish in a sushi eating contest ... and came in third. I also own JoeShopping.com, the friendliest coupons and deals site on the web.
Remember when you were first dating? Your boyfriend would write you poems, shower you with gifts, toss non-stop compliments your way. And then eventually, you get married and all that gets tossed out the window.
Yes, being married for years and years can take its toll. Routines set in and you can quickly forget all about the little things you used to do for each other. But it doesn't have to be that way.
Guys, just because you've already "gotten the girl," doesn't mean you should stop showing her the affection and attention she deserves. And I don't just mean firing up the popcorn and watching one of the most romantic movies ever with your wife.
Life is truly in the details, so stick to them. Show your wife how much you love her not by buying her a huge diamond ring or a new car (though I'm sure she'd love those), but by constantly reminding her how much she means to you.
Your kids are perfect, right? They say "please" and "thank you" at the right times. They chew with their mouth closed. Wash their hands often. And they never, ever use potty talk.
Well, at least that's how you like to view them. Reality, however, paints a very different picture. It makes no difference who you are or how you raise your children. No matter what your race, nationality, financial situation, or location, there is one hard and fast rule: Kids are gross.
Maybe some kids are grosser than others. Maybe some are only gross on occasion. But come hell or high water, kids will find a way to make you want to toss your cookies. You really can't blame them, though. It's in their nature.
Whether it's your own kid, a relative's, a friend's or just some stranger's kid sitting near you at Burger King, trust me, you're bound to be grossed out to the max.
Here are 6 of the grossest things kids just love to torture us with.
For guys, there are three pivotal moments in any relationship. Moments that aren't just huge milestones, but ones that fill us with absolute terror.
One of course, is marriage. I'm not talking about the wedding itself or the "till death do us part" thing. I mean the proposing. See, even if we've talked about it for years, and absolutely know you're going to say, "yes," there's still that eensy teensy chance we could be rejected that gets our foreheads sweating like mad. Yeah, we're weird like that.
The second scariest moment would be the first time a guy tells his girl he loves her. Those three simple words completely turn any relationship on its side. Nothing will ever be the same again. It might be good, it might be bad. But it'll never be the same again.
The third scariest moment, however, is the biggest. It's the one guys absolutely fear the most.
Spring is finally here. The flowers are budding. The air's getting warmer. And soon little baby animals will be making women go, "awwwwww, how cute!"
It's the season of birth, as nature wakes up from its long winter. To help celebrate this momentous occasion, I thought now would be the perfect time to share some of the biggest parenting lessons I've learned. Where'd I learn them you may ask? Go ahead, ask. Well, I learned them from the most reliable, believable, influential source around: the movies.
Yes, movies about being a parent are generally hilarious and educational. So what if they're not completely based on fact, or even partially. Don't let that stop you from learning! Read on for the 7 Best Parenting Lessons You Can Gleam From the Movies!
