Join the Revolution

From: Founding a Father
You've heard of the Fab Four: John, Paul, George, and JimmyI am of course referring to our Founding Fathers: Adams, Revere, Washington, and Jimmy from Founding a Father. He has been featured here on DKL a few times, most recently in my Pay it Forward Tribute to Dads for Father's Day.

Today, he is graciously returning the favor big time. I was very excited when Jimmy invited me to guest post on his blog. He is a talented writer who makes me laugh, cry or think every time he posts. Please check out my post on his site. I discuss a recent milestone Peanut hit: her Pre-K graduation. And it's not as shmaltzy as you might expect:
Now that Peanut is kicking the comfort of daycare off her shoes and heading into Kindergarten in the fall; now that she’s participated in the emotional, adorable “stepping up” ceremony that had my face soaked with snot and tears, causing me to lose all of my street cred as a stoic, stone-faced sarcastic dad; now that all of that is behind us and we are looking forward to rest of her academic career, I have some words of wisdom to impart on Peanut and her pint-sized classmates.


  1. Congrats on the guest blogging stint! Quite an honor. ;)

    I'm so not looking forward to Kindergarten in the fall and hope you're dealing with it better than I am.

    1. I think we're ok.. for now. But talk to me at the end of August. Hahaha.

  2. Nice post.
    She'll be doing all of those things scary fast.You'll blink and time will pass. So, enjoy cutting the meat now. Ok, not the meat. But, maybe the reading :-)

    1. I know, I know... it's the wiping the butt i can do without. And I love reading to her... please know I was being sarcastic. (I know YOU do.)

  3. Thank you for doing it. Loved it! Loved!
