The Great Pet Moms Controversy – Parents Article

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have noticed a bit of a controversy last week, just before Mother’s Day. I posted a meme that generated some passionate responses, and for once it wasn’t about Trump or gun control or vaccinating your kids. This was about pet moms – more specifically, why they’re not actually moms. I know, I know, calm down. I heard all the comments, and this week on the podcast, I responded as best…

Sleeping on the Couch – Dad and Buried – Parents Article

I am not ashamed to admit that I sleep on the couch sometimes, and it’s not always because Mom and Buried is mad at me! Sometimes it’s because I’M mad at HER! How about THAT?!

I Wouldn’t Want To Be His Friend – Single Dad, Parents Article

TFS: Stylin’, profilin’, and alwaysready with the one-linin’.Both The Favorite Son (TFS) and I have a Spotify account. Because I tend to be unable to tolerate his mix of songs, it’s my Spotify that is usually played on a blue tooth speaker at home or in the car. One of the songs on my playlist is the Jim Carroll Band’s People Who Died. It’s a pretty groovin’ tune, but it’s also pretty depressing as Jim Carroll sings the list of people…
