Tag: Elizabeth Wilkie

Lady Wizard

Love is everything and nothing at all. It is effortless and extremely difficult. It is magic and science. It just is. Also, it isn’t. Elizabeth Wilkie is a soldier in trenches of the war of love. Also: Life. She battles everyday. Against her body. Against time. Against it all. Then, she sleeps. Seriously, this chick… Read More ›

Got my hair did

Since my wife and I had a child, there are a few things I’ve had to give up: I’ve had to give up eating a meal without being screamed at in gibberish. I’ve had to give up watching a movie without having my genitals bitten (it’s a long story). I’ve had to give up going to… Read More ›

Opinions

Parenting and opinions go hand in hand. There is always someone willing to share their perspective with you. There is always someone who thinks they are letting you know the real truth. There is always a parent telling you how to teach your child to behave as theirs takes a shit on a police dog. We talk more than we… Read More ›

Not Swears But…

Aside from f-bombs, c-blasts and d-triggers, there are words one should shy away from when in a toddler’s vicinity.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia

I don’t talk about this a lot because talking about real things is still new to me. Anyway. My wife has chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. What does that mean, well, according to the Mayo Clinic, chronic fatigue syndrome is, “a complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that can’t be explained by any underlying medical… Read More ›

Birthday

I’ve turned forty and have learned something: Beside every Undad there who is as equal and awesome (mostly awesomer) as they are. I’d be lost without Elizabeth Wilkie. Without her, I’d be just some train jumping hobo who’d need to ‘Dutch Rudder’ an American congressman in order to steal enough fancy hotel bathrobes to pawn for McNuggets. …. Read More ›
