Happy New Year! I hope 2019 is ready to shower you all with good things! I also hope that the holiday season of 2018 showered you with goodies too! I got some great “toys” – a pneumatic nail gun, an Amazon Echo Dot and a gigantic LEGO set for Kylo Ren’s tie fighter. Also… gift cards. Raise your hands if, as folks in our 40s, … Continue reading Modern Man POST Holiday Gift Guide – What To Spend Your Gift Cards On
Hey there! I recently got back in the cab of the pick-up truck (with a NEW theme song and opening credits!) and recorded a new edition of our Modern Man Truck Tales! This time we put together a fun Top 10 list dedicated to the pop culture stuck in our brains. I created my Top 10 Favorite Movie Quotes I use in every day life. … Continue reading TruckTales Video – Top 10 Movie Quotes I Use In Everyday Life
“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers” – Shakespeare The cliche “It takes a village” is cringe-worthy to hear. It’s so over used, and every new parent gets a chill up their spine every time it’s uttered. However, the sentiment is true. If you fight hard enough for something, it’s a battle made easier with good people standing beside you. Hopefully, your family … Continue reading Get By With A Little Help From My Friends
I like football. I LOVE baseball, but I like football. Within the past few years, I’ve become a Packers fan (bye bye Mike McCarthy). However, I’ve always lived in New England, so Patriots fans were prevalent all around. I’ve only been to one NFL game before, and it was as a member of the UCONN Marching Band. We played the halftime show for a Patriots … Continue reading Living the VIP Life at a New England Patriots Game
On Facebook, I was challenged by a friend to share a favorite Christmas song, every day, for 12 days. I’ve enjoyed these kinds of lists in the past – and I LOVE Christmas music. So, I was happy to do it! Christmas music is pure joy to me. I’m sad when the radio stops playing it at some point on Christmas day and goes back … Continue reading 12 Days of Christmas Songs! My Favorites!
Last week I got the email: “We’re going to all dress up for Halloween, here in the office.” Now, I’m not a total kill-joy in life. I’ve dressed in more costumes than I remember thanks to my years and years in community theater. I’m happy to dress with my kids while we go trick-or-treating. There’s just something about sitting around in the office, in costume, … Continue reading Office-Friendly Halloween Costumes for The Modern Man
My wife has suggested I try a new subscription service that specializes in great looking graphic t-shirts. She mentioned it before Christmas. Again, around my birthday and then again around Father’s Day. I was slow to take the hint. Like many of the Modern Men in our 40s, my t-shirt collection was a mishmash of shirts from over the past several (some 20+) years. Yankee … Continue reading Keith Signs Up For Wohven Subscription Service – A Review

As parents, we always gush over our babies’ big firsts. First Steps. First Words. First Sleep Through The Night. First Toilet Time. First Tooth. They’re awesome. I loved every single one. But you know what? There are more ‘firsts’ that, as a Dad of three, I love too. Things that make life a little more easy, a little more enjoyable, a little more fun. The … Continue reading Some Of My Favorite Uncelebrated Baby Milestones

After yesterday’s story with my favorite apps to keep myself awake while rocking the baby back to sleep in the middle of the night, I received a few messages from our readers… they all ask… “But how do YOU fall back asleep after that!?” That’s a great question. To me, I didn’t put much thought into that aspect while I was writing the piece. The … Continue reading Follow Up Story – The Baby Is Finally Asleep – What About You!?
Every involved father, as many of us Modern Men seem to be, has their fair share of middle of the night rocking sessions with the baby. I love that I get to be a part of that night system. I don’t understand fathers who expect the mothers to get up every time, while they get to sleep through the night. Get up. Be a part … Continue reading Staying Awake at 3am with the Baby – My Favorite Apps
