ADHD and Me

ADHD and Me

Last year, I shared a post about my son’s ADHD diagnosis, and the relief it brought.

Finally, we had confirmation that our 9yo wasn’t intentionally ignoring us, willfully misbehaving, or somehow a bad kid. His brain is just wired differently, and with his diagnosis, we’ve been able to view things from a different perspective; hopefully, a more patient and understanding one.

Of course, understanding the big picture is one thing and managing my everyday reactions to his behavior is another.

Noise-Cancel Culture

Noise-Cancel Culture

Disclaimer: I partnered with Best Buy and Sony to promote their noise-canceling headphones, but all opinions and whining about my kids are my own.

I spend a lot of time wearing headphones.

On my commute to work, when I work at my desk, when I’m writing, when I’m mowing the lawn, when I’m emptying the dishwasher, I even used to go to sleep with my headphones in.Music is life. Podcasts are pretty good too. (Check out the latest episode of mine!)

Basically, I prefer to listen to things besides the noise of the street, or the strangers standing next to me on the subway, or the people in my home asking me for snacks and shows and toys.

That’s why I love my new noise-cancelling headphones.

The Vaccination Controversy!

The Vaccination Controversy!

If you’ve been listening to my podcast or following me on Instagram, you might know that we’ve been teasing doing a “controversial” episode. In an effort to get people to rate us on Apple Podcasts (PLEASE GO RATE US ON APPLE PODCASTS!), I swore that when we hit 100 ratings, we’d let listeners choose a controversial parenting topic for us to cover.

Well, we hit 100. And I let the listeners choose. And the listeners chose vaccinations.

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Dad and Buried

Ever wonder if I’m gonna have another kid? (Please.) How I deal with tantrums? (Not well.) What I miss most about my pre-fatherhood life? (Everything!) Well you’re in luck!

In the latest episode of the Dad and Buried Podcast – our 30th, because somehow we’ve been doing this for more than half a year already – my co-host Pete and I answered a ton of questions from listeners. We talked about the first time we met each other, what we’d be doing if we didn’t have kids, our favorite movies, music, and books, I even ranted a bit about Superman, as I’ve been known to do.
