Just Talk

Posted by Fresh Start Dad on January 7, 2011 in about the ex, Family, Kids, Parenting |

Communication. I’m a firm believer that a good relationship needs good communication. Not just an adequate amount of communication, but it needs to be comfortable to communicate with the other person in the relationship. If you are uncomfortable and hesitant about having a conversation with that person about a topic — any topic — they […]

Was My Daughter Hit On?

Posted by Fresh Start Dad on October 12, 2010 in Kids, Parenting, Poll, Relationship Advice, Single Life |

This morning, my daughter told me that she received a compliment on her shoes — her old, beat-up, comfy, rainbow flip-flops — from “someone” in the tutoring center at school the other day. I asked half-jokingly what “his” name was, to which she said she didn’t know his name. I then proceeded to share with […]

Friday Ramblings: The Next Phase

Posted by Fresh Start Dad on August 27, 2010 in Current Events, Emotions, Family, Kids, Parenting, Ramblings, Truth |

When I first sat down to write this post I only had the tiniest bit of focus, and as I continued to write even that went astray. My first draft covered a wide variety of topics, but I only pulled a few together for this post. The upside: there will be another post from the […]

Kids Know When You Don't Care

Posted by Fresh Start Dad on August 15, 2010 in about the ex, Current Events, Emotions, Kids, Photography, Rant, tell me you're not serious., Truth |

This weekend my daughter begins living with me full-time; no more scheduled back and forth between her mom’s house and mine. Although the ex and I live only a mile apart, my soon-to-be-18-year-old daughter decided that she just wants to call one house “home”. She chose mine. This has not set well with her mother […]

Movies In The…"Park"??

Posted by Fresh Start Dad on August 13, 2010 in Activities, Current Events, Kids, Parenting |

A couple of weeks ago I took my kids to an outdoor movie. You know, one of those movie showings they do during the summer where you bring a blanket, sit out under the stars, munch on a picnic you’ve brought and enjoy a bottle of wine (or beer) while enjoying an older can’t-find-it-in-theaters-anymore movie.

Horoscopes Can Be Spooky

Posted by Fresh Start Dad on June 26, 2010 in Current Events, Emotions, Family, Kids, Parenting |

Yesterday was a bad day. There was some drama with my daughter — nothing major, just very emotional, more for her than me — crap with my landlord, and the most upsetting was that a friend’s ashes were scattered on Thursday, but nobody told me it was happening that day. I wasn’t happy.  Sure, the […]

Special Fathers' Day Wishes

A moment, for some special Fathers’ Day wishes: Fathers in the Military It’s a life you chose, and it has taken you far away. You fight for not only our freedom and rights, but for those of your children. You sacrifice being with your family, and risk the ultimate sacrifice while doing so. May all […]

And So It Begins

Posted by Fresh Start Dad on June 9, 2010 in Historical Information, Kids, Parenting, Truth |

There are some events that have occurred in my life that are very easy for me to recall.  They are memories that give me pleasure to recall, or that are a very significant point in my life. These events usually concern my children.  As we head into the final days of my daughter’s years in […]

June Wants To Kick My Ass

Posted by Fresh Start Dad on June 4, 2010 in Current Events, Family, Kids, Parenting, Venting |

I should’ve seen this coming; June wants to kill me. Multiple events per day on multiple occasions. Family obligations. Friends who I haven’t seen in awhile and really want too — but probably won’t be able to. New friends that I’d like to meet in real life, but that also looks unlikely. I’m still trying […]

Little Things That Make A Parent Smile

Posted by Fresh Start Dad on May 13, 2010 in Kids, Parenting |

Every once in awhile a parent gets to see their child do something small — infinitesimally small — that lets them know that somewhere along the way they did things right.  I got that experience tonight. I had a to leave the house before the kids were done with dinner.  A couple of hours I […]
