A lot of people have asked me why I write this blog. Usually, it’s with some sort of incredulous tone, like “why would you share all that personal information??” If you want to know my answer, all you have to do is take a look at my header or at the picture to the right. I do this blog for my daughters. Continue reading

Episode 1 of The Poppin’ Bottles Dad-Cast is In the Books
We officially launched the Poppin’ Bottles Dad-Cast this past Sunday and let me just say: it was a blast to do. I’d never done a podcast before and hadn’t ever thought about doing one before, until Ben pitched the idea to me. Go check out Episode One!
Coming Soon to Papabrownie.com: The Poppin’ Bottles Dad-Cast
I’m excited to announce that coming very soon, possibly as soon as early next week, I, along with Ben from Sketchy Radio will be premiering the “Poppin’ Bottles Dad-Cast”.
We’ll be recording each new episode on Sundays. As we record each new episode, I’ll be posting them here for you to hear. You can also visit our Facebook page. You can follow us on twitter @PBDadCast
This is the premise behind our podcast: A couple of dads podcasting about being dads! Open your ears for some great stories and conversations about all things we dads face on a daily basis.
Both Ben and I are stoked to bring you some great stories, in addition to the ones I write here!

I Want to Hear From You!
One of the coolest things about writing this blog is that I get to share great stories, funny stories, and my experiences as a parent. Hopefully those stories and experiences resonate with all of you. One thing that I don’t get to this point is a ton of interaction with all of you. I want to change that. Continue reading
Convos With My 2-Year Old Mimics My Life
When it comes to life with a two-year-old, you know that you’re going to end up having some insane conversations with them, that make no sense, that make you laugh, and many, MANY times are going to make you laugh until you either A) cry B) pee yourself.
So, you can imagine my delight when I came upon the YouTube channel for Convos With My 2 Year Old. Continue reading
When One Becomes Two and Sleep Becomes None
The time was 3:01 am this morning and if it weren’t for the extreme exhaustion of the moment, this post would have been written then. This is what was running through my head at the time: “It’s currently 3:01 am, I just finished feeding Maddie and putting her to bed and am now fighting with a half-asleep-I-need-to-sleep-in-your-bed-and-kick-you-over-and-over-in-the-process Sophia and can hear the faint sounds of a breast pump running through the baby monitor.”
