Another school year in the books for mini me! No more gettin' up super early, homework, Success Maker, Wonders, kahoot, Dojo, mojo, flojo, and whatever other programs the school board blindly signs up for. (I digress). But summer break is here and the mini couldn't be happier. What do you'll have planned for the summer?... Continue Reading →

Who Doesn’t Love a Daddy Daughter Day?
Recently, mini me and I were able to head up to Raleigh for a day and hit a few golf balls at Drive Shack. We've been trying to get back there for a while, but with life's curveballs, we've had to constantly push it back. But finally, a weekend freed up for us, so we... Continue Reading →

I have a shovel and an alibi.
The other day I had an eventful day at the store. Normally, I'm in and out, but this day had me there a little longer than desired. The Mrs. and mini me were hanging out inside while I took the bags to the car. While returning back to the store, I hear a female voice... Continue Reading →
Why are kids critical thinkers when it’s time to go to sleep???
Can I kick it with yall for a little? Almost every night, mini me and I do our nightly duties together. Get vitamins, brush teeth, get tucked in bed, and go to sleep. It's a normal routine for most parents I know. It seems simple, but there are times where my child feels as though... Continue Reading →
