Suddenly it’s parent celebration season again! Ladies first, of course. So, moms, please step forward and scoop up the thanks and goodies that you so richly deserve. A quick search of the DadLabs archives is enough to reveal that we have sadly, in our reckless efforts to serve dads, sorely underserved this holiday in the past.
Never fear, Concretin Nik is here! Our fearless community leader has a post that will arrive on the very Day of Mothers. We hope that you will check that out and leave some responses.
Our plans in Casa Five Cents are pretty low key. After serving mom breakfast in bed (or letting her sleep in) I’ll slip off to run the the Daisy 5K with whatever kids I can bribe to come along. We’ll make mom dinner. Then I’ll give her the big news. Read the rest of this entry »

What have I done to deserve this violence?
I have been a loving and affectionate father to my youngest son. In his eight years, I have read to him and tucked him in at night. I have driven him to sports events and cheered him on. I have helped to prepare his meals, wash his clothes and clean his room.
And yet nothing makes this child more gleeful than cleaning out my snot locker with a blind-sided throw-pillow roundhouse. The pained exhalation I produce when he drops a pointy elbow into my spleen makes him positively cackle. He giggles himself into a hiccuping fit with every rabbit punch, body slam, and charlie horse he delivers. Read the rest of this entry »

A new line of bathing suits for young girls introduced by model/actress Elizabeth Hurley has sparked a minor new media uproar and drawn criticism from a number of quarters. Critics have condemned the suits and the celebrity for contributing to the increased sexualization of girls in our culture. They site not only the suits themselves, but the “provocative” poses the girl models in the ads strike.
I personally think the most obscene thing about these suits is the price. Read the rest of this entry »
