Chatting with Casey 0013 — It Takes Two to Tango in Friendship

It’s always nice to take a break from our lives and spend a little time on vacation, but when you own your own business, you need to plan for that. Eight Tiny Reindeer, Two Great Friends, One Awesome Episode! One thing 2018’s taught me is that I need to […]

Why Father’s Day Isn’t Mother’s Day II — An Exercise in Fatherhood by Casey E. Palmer

“Happy Father’s Day to the single mothers out there doing both jobs.” No. Oh, I get it. And I agree that we should celebrate single Moms for everything they do to raise their kids—it ain’t easy; I have a hard enough time with two of us in the house. […]

Chatting with Casey 0004 — It’s Hard Out Here for a Dad

“Just because he got her pregnant doesn’t mean he needs to be a Dad.” “How do you know she wasn’t trying to trap him into a relationship? These women will go to extremes to lock a brother down!” “Why does he have to change his life because something unexpected happened?” The allegation […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — The Road to Dad 2.0 and BEYOND.

And then in January 2018, I went and hit a wall. I looked good on paper. I’d just finished my best year yet as a blogger, already looking to take things a step farther with a retooled Tales from the 2.9. And adulting was alright, too—I had the […]

TRY YOUR LUCK: Star Wars Celebrates Dads with an I Am Your Father’s Day Greeting

“Your father? I am your father.” Darth Vader’s classic line from The Empire Strikes Back has been quoted, misquoted, and referenced every which way since its first utterance in 1980. But you’ve never seen a take on it quite like this—taking a fatherhood reveal that makes Maury Povich’s look like […]

Casey Palmer and The Globe and Mail do Father’s Day!

It’s been a busy summer, y’all. After time spent everywhere from the Toronto Islands and Lake Simcoe all the way to Mexico, the juggling act between the #BloggerLife, the family, and a pile of paperwork that’s multiplying faster than a herd of rabbits has been an intense one. So […]

Happy Father’s Day from Mark’s — or — Papa’s Got Some Brand New Shoes

Growing up, my parents always stressed how important it was to have the right footwear for the occasion, so over the years I’ve learned to invest in kicks that help me be my best no matter what life’s throwing at me. I’d like to think I fare better at my shoe game […]

GIVEAWAY POST: #ThanksBaby — How Pampers Highlights the Finer Side of Fatherhood

In my world, June’s all about the Dads. Unlike Canadian Moms, unfortunate enough to celebrate Mother’s Day under the shadow of May 24’s looming promise (aka the first Canadian long weekend that isn’t cold, wet, or having anything else fall from the sky), June’s sorely lacking in anything distracting […]

31 Things I Know Now That I’m 31: #2 — Your Parents are Real People… Just Like You!

Parenting is no joke. Though I’m only 18 months into my parenting journey, I’ve already taken note of ways my behaviour’s impacting my impressionable little son. Like his surprise one Saturday morning upon waking up from a nap, finding me at the kitchen table instead of at my computer desk where […]

I’M NOT DEAD, I’M JUST A DAD: The Road to Fatherhood — First Steps

The Dad is the unsung hero of parenting, and it’s easy to see why. They don’t grow babies inside of them for 40 weeks. They don’t breastfeed or have the same degree of parental instinct as mothers do. In many parenting situations I’ve seen, the role of the Dad is […]
