Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Dad and Buried

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.

The Family Sound Machine

The Family Sound Machine

A few weeks ago, we went to Best Buy and bought a new TV.

Our old one still worked, but we’d recently spent some time visiting friends’ and family, and when we watched a movie it quickly became clear that our TV was way out of date. So we got ourselves a new Samsung, and we couldn’t be happier.

The blacks are blacker, the HD is HDer, it’s an amazing upgrade, just in time for “Succession” and “Mindhunter”‘s new seasons.

There’s just one nagging little issue…

Couple Time

Couple Time

Last weekend, my wife and I got a babysitter and went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday.

This picture was taken on the subway on the way to dinner. That’s my decidedly less glittery hand holding up Mom and Buried’s phone so she can properly apply her eyeliner (I assume it’s eye liner? Don’t @ me!).

For the record: she swears she didn’t realize the scarf matched her iPhone case, and I believe her, because she impulsively grabbed the scarf as we rushed out the door. She had to do her makeup on the G train; we weren’t working with a lot of time! But we’re parents.

We’re never working with a lot of time.

Spread Too Thin

Spread Too Thin

Today, instead of putting my son on the bus and going straight to work, I took him to school so I could visit his class for “First Fridays.” First Fridays are a monthly occurrence on which parents are allowed – and encouraged – drop in on school and find out what our kids are working on.

Afterwards, on the train – in the middle of wondering WTF common core is all about – I suddenly realized I’d completely forgotten to do something I was supposed to have done first thing that morning.

Maybe it’s because I’m 42. Maybe it’s because I’m tired. But I think it might be because I’m spread too thin.

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

Almost every time my wife is on the hook to get me a gift – my birthday, Christmas, our anniversary – she gets me headphones. Over the course of our relationship, I must have gotten a dozen new pairs of headphones. Over the ear, noise-canceling, waterproof, a bluetooth necklace pair; I’ve been gifted them all.

I’m not complaining. I love getting new headphones. I’m always on the lookout for the next best pair. This Father’s Day, I did not get new headphones. Because I didn’t need them.

I have Skullcandy’s Push True Wireless In-Ear Headphones.
