  • Not so New Dad, needs Sega

    It’s been a while since I last talked about gaming within the realms of parenting. My last post on the subject was New Dad Seeks Battle just over two and a half years ago. The New Dad series was written during the first few months of my daughter’s life...
  • Making Me Smile

    It’s okay to not be okay. It is. Everyone gets sad, angry or upset. It’s part of life. To get the highs you have to take the lows, the rough with the smooth and any other cliches that come to mind. – A rock and a– no, not that...
