Lessons in Incredible Leadership are back! This week I'll be doing a series on leadership and how it relates to parenthood. Today's topic is love and patience. Patience has a calming effect on everyone under its influence. IncrediDads, Super-Sidekicks, and IncrediMoms alike can be soothed when we all practice patience. Cranky people aren't always super- villains, sometimes they just need us to…

The First Year

October 30th, 2018 Dear Boy Wonder, If you are reading this, that means you've discovered that I've been publishing stories about your life since day one. It also means we are in the future and I'm probably too old to care that you're embarrassed by it. Regardless, there are some things I want to share with you: Your mother is always right. Even when she's wrong. Always ask questions and never…

The Sesame Effect

How am I supposed to teach my son to embody love when we live in a country that always seems on the brink of a second civil war? Between Twitter wars,  gender politics, President Trump, and race relations, we are living in an age of outrage. How exhausting is that? Thankfully there is still one bright light shining over at PBS that can set a good example for him. Through Sesame Street’s…

Meals You Know By Heart

When Boy Wonder started eating real food, Bex and I agreed that we wanted him to eat healthier than we do, but why? The plan was to raise him as a "flexitarian". That meant mostly fruits and veggies, some meat, and limited refined sugars. Our diet is mainly meats, some veggies, and lots of junk food. I don't feel so Incred-ble writing that last thought. Spend five minutes with me and I'll tell…

Coffee vs. Red Bull vs. Water

Day 336 - Boy Wonder is still not sleeping through the night.  To get us through those rough nights and groggy mornings, IncrediMom and Dad need a power boost. We each have our poisons. I brew a rich, steaming hot, cup of coffee while Bex reaches for an ice cold can of Red Bull Blue Edition. Somehow, we still end up arguing over who is more tired. So I decided that the most scientific way to…

Where Is My Super-Suit?

Batman has his cowl. Superman wears his tights. James Bond slips into a tuxedo like it's his second skin. Indiana Jones never loses his hat. The Incredidad wears a tee-shirt and shorts. All of these men have three things in common: They've all saved the world from time to time. They have their own version of a super suit. They all get the girl. Moral of the story is - Women love a man in uniform.…

Tips For Traveling With A Baby – Part II

This is your captain speaking. We're cruising at 30,000 feet with blue skies ahead...Hold on...I've just received word that someone has brought a baby on board. Folks buckles in and stay seated. You're in for a rocky flight. After watching the other passengers avoid us like we were diseased, the flight attendants glare at us with weariness in their eyes, I swear that's what I heard over our…

Tips For Flying With A Baby – Part 1

Your Pre-Flight Check List If the CIA really wanted to get their terrorist suspects to talk, they should force them to take a long flight with a baby on their lap. That kind of unconstitutional torture is exactly what Bex and I willingly submitted too last month. If I had any State Secrets to share, I would gladly have sung like a canary after those flights. So if you're thinking about going on a…

Acting Like A Super Villain

Bex, if you're reading this, stop now. Just close it. X out and go do something else. If any other Incredi-Reader is near her, please take her phone and throw it out the window because we all know she's not going to listen me. Waiting...waiting...Okay is she gone? Good. Today I'm going to talk about a major flaw of mine and I don't want her getting ideas that I am anything less than perfect. But…
