Why Brant’s 24th Birthday Changed His Life Forever

This month, my life is perfectly split in two. Exactly 24 years ago this month, I turned 24. What I remember most from that month wasn’t my birthday: It was this guy I met. He was very, VERY short. I remember that. So short, in fact, that the first time I met him, someone just… handed him to me. Seriously. They handed me a guy.

I loved our little boy, but… that’s disgusting. I didn’t want to see the dirty diaper or smell it or touch it. Gross. It would have been easy to steer clear of the whole process, save for one thing: I loved my… … Continue reading

Don’t Be Sad It’s Over

Look, I’m going to give myself 20 minutes to write this, and no more. I can’t handle it. I’m going to type fast, and be done with it. So you’ll get it, mistakes and all. — I’m like a lot of dads: I’m not THAT emotional, but man, when I think about my kids, my little ones, growing up and away… well, like I said, I can’t handle it.

And I think what a terrible legacy to leave behind.” Read more HERE   … Continue reading
