10 Tastiest Hot Sauces by a Modern Dad

It’s no wonder that a husband to a magnificent “modern day mom” would have to declare his own awesomeness every now and then, especially when his wife’s awesomeness is a given. Being a caveman when it comes to the Internet and an absolute Neanderthal when it comes to blogging there are only a few ways I can puff out my chest, beat on my wiry hairs and declare, “me man, look at my… um….man stuff”. Aside from occasionally coming home on crutches, covered head to toe in bruises from a long standing “extreme sports” obsession, walking in the door slathered in grease from DIY car repair, and a thumping headache from showing my wife how we used to “shoot tequila” in my early 20s, the least painful and probably most tolerable of these “declarations of man power” is my hot sauce obsession.

Tech Talk: Tablets for Tots?

Welcome to Jess T.’s Tech Tuesday, where all your geek are belong to us!

There’s no doubt about it – kids love tech items. They see adults touching them, staring at them, and poking them all day – so they MUST be important and awesome! At Modern Day Moms, our kids cannot keep their hands off of our phones, iPods and tablets. We get the funniest Beluga messages when our kids hijack our business meetings. Once, we had quite the scare when one of our editors was almost photographed in the shower by a rogue toddler with a smartphone!


Build A Dream Playhouses

You know that saying? “Why buy the toys?! They’d rather play with the box!” It’s so true. Those little stinkers always want to play with the packaging! Miles is always asking for a “FUT” (fort) with the boxes. Sigh. So it’s no surprise that a Dad in Cleveland came up with the genius idea to make the packaging the toy!!! They take regular, everyday cardboard and make it fantastic and ready to open your child’s imagination.

Adventures in Home Schooling : Part One

I have two daughters, Amelia and Olivia. At 5 and 3, these kids are a handful. So it has become glaringly apparent to me that I’ve lost my mind since I decided to homeschool them. Together. At the same time. In addition to working part-time early mornings and taking online and late night college classes. Ok, so all “what the heck were you thinking?!” comments aside, I am fully confident in my ability to not screw this up. Over the coming months, I’ll be keeping you up to date on the exciting life of my crazy family and our journey.


Dabbawalla Bags

Back to school time means new back packs! I loved picking out a new backpack each year, and I am sure my daughter will be the same when she’s older. Dabbawalla makes the cutest bags! They are great for younger school age children, and also for children in day care.
