Oh no! What do we do?/ Don't look now but I lost my shoe/ I can't run and I can't kick/ What's a matter babe, are you feeling sick? - Buddy Holly by Weezer

The songs of our youth are weird, wild, and sometimes downright creepy. As Dads, we love to expose our children to the music that we grew up with.  These songs helped define our youth, our growth into manhood, and helped define who we would be as Dads.

Thank you ...

The kids are in bed. The day is winding down, and coming to an end.  All you want to do is unwind in front of the old boob tube.  Relax and enjoy the rest of the evening with that special someone, but how do you decide on what to watch? Where do you sit? What are the rules on snuggle time during the movie? Are you allowed to ask questions during the show? How loud is the volume?  All this and more covered on maybe the most importan...

When I think of Back to School, it meant the end of summer. No more games of kick the can, or ghosts in the graveyard. We did get to go school shopping, but it was time to go back to the grind again. Now that we are parents, the words Back to School means: helping with homework, finding lost school supplies, school shopping (just as much fun for the kids as the adults) and figuring out school lunches. Summer may be over,  but the T...

All Dad's at some point rock a mustache. Just as all 12 year old boys proudly wear their upper lip hair stubble to prove their manhood.  All Fathers will have at some point channel their inner Ned Flanders and grow a mustache.  I am not sure where there is such a strong correlation between facial hair and fathers, but in E36 we try to cover our favorite and most influential Dads with mustaches.
