Rock Lobster and a rock star baby

Rock Lobster and a rock star baby
I’ve been working third shift for the last 6 months, it’s not preferred but it’s my reality for now so one does what one can.  This reality allows me a guilty pleasure; day drinking.  I am day drinking as I type and jamming out to Rock Lobster by the B-52′s.  That was reason enough to...

    Elevating the fatherhood game is what I am doing, daily. Whining, complaining and cursing about kids you will not find here. Parenting is a refined art that so few do to a high level and I have set the bar high. High class, high society, high brow, all the time.
