FOR OUR 6th BIRTHDAY WE MOVED!

Six years ago in this month I started the fatherdad.com/African American Dad blog through Malecare Inc. Since then I have been writing and working on a so many projects in addition to my regular 9-5 work that I am kind of dizzy. Even when I have gone radio silent for long stretches, I'm usually busy [...]

Hey, Where Did the Summer Go?

I'm not the biggest fan of the summer. I don't like being covered in sweat when I get to work. I don't like being devoured by evil hungry mosquitoes. And I despise flying beetles sneaking into my home getting caught in my ceiling fan's down draft and landing in my sleeping face. I also don't [...]

CHATTING WITH GOOD OL’ MOM

I've never posted a conversation with my mother on this blog. Good thing she doesn't own a computer... My mother and I were talking on the phone the other day and as usual she tried to run a guilt trip on me. She said "oh my boys don't call me enough." And "I guess one [...]

REMEMBERING MY PERSONAL HERO
