Clorox and Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles II Team Up for One Incredible Summer

This post is sponsored by Clorox. All thoughts and opinions are my own. It's no secret that I love comic books. I've always loved those masked marvels and caped crusaders, ever since I was a little boy. In fact, I used to think of my dad as a superhero. Just like most kids, I'd run around pretending I was Superman. I'd tie my Nun Nun (i.e. my security blanket) around my neck and race around the house flying. Dad would often scoop me up and toss me onto his bed, adding to the magic of the moment. On Saturdays especially, he'd play around with my sister Beth and I, lifting us up and ...

You’ll Never Believe What I Do With Baby Oil

Hacking. It's a word I hear non-stop in my house as my kids feverishly play Minecraft on their computers and keep screaming, "He's hacking!" Yes, they're referring to a sort of "cheating" within the game. But in real life, hacks are pretty darn cool. When you can take a product like say Johnson’s® Baby Baby Oil and use it for tons of other purposes, you've just greatly increased the return on your investment! Okay, so baby oil hacks may not be tops on your list of things to do today. But trust me, having a bottle of Johnson’s® Baby Baby Oil in your cabinets is well worth it. The best part? ...

To Counter All the Hate, Here’s 101 Things I Truly Love

There's a lot of hate going on in the world these days. I'm not going to start talking politics here at all, nor am I blindly ignoring the reasons behind all this hate. Instead, however, I'm preaching love. Love. Compassion. Caring. You can do all of that while still disagreeing with one another on things. That said, I'm doing my part to spread as much positive vibes as I can these days. I know it's not all chocolate and bunnies and rainbows, but if my little piece of the Interweb can help distract you from the political rants on Facebook for even five minutes, then I'm doing my job. I recently wrote ...

Dads Get More ‘Kid Time’ Thanks to the SwifferEffect

I've got a friend named Eric. He's not your typical guy and I don't mean that just because he roots for the Cleveland Browns. Y'see, Eric likes to do something really odd. Something no man or woman alive likes to admit to enjoying. And yes, he likes to do it in the kitchen. Doesn't matter whose kitchen either. Could be his. Could be mine. Could be yours. He doesn't care, he'll just dive right in. Yep, for some crazy reason Eric actually enjoys... doing the dishes. For realsies! I don't get it either. But knowing that he has a real passion for cleanliness I thought who better to surprise with a magical green Swiffer ...

I Put My Kids To Work in the Yard with Rubbermaid Roughneck

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media® and Rubbermaid, but all my opinions are my own. #weavemade #FallFixUp http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH When I was a kid, one of my favorite seasons was the fall. Not just because the candy-filled Halloween was around the corner, but because it meant one thing: leaves. Piles and piles and piles of leaves. Seriously, is there anything more fun, more carefree, more innocent then just jumping in a big ol' pile of leaves as a kid? Okay so maybe dad wasn't too thrilled when I'd wreck his nicely raked pile, but that just meant I'd get to help him rake some more. ...
