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 […]

Chatting with Casey 0003 — Give Me Some Room to Fail

Work at something hard enough, and you eventually hit a point where everything starts to click. I’ve been grinding away especially hard at the blog, the job, and everything in between of late, trying to make sense of everything and cut down on the clutter that’s always in the way. And […]

The 2017 100 Wrap-Up — 31 Successes.

Several weeks, a few dozen photos and four thousand words later, we’ve finally made it—the Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad 2017 wrap-up, filled with stories aplenty of 365 days spent in my not-so-orthodox life. After wrapping the year up on a quiet note (because two sick children under five will do […]

The Life and Times of the Palmer Family — NaBloPoMo Day 10 — This is 4.

Hey kiddo, You’ll often hear me joke that we’re simply graduating from the “Terrifying Threes” to the “What the Fours,” but no matter what comes out of your father’s cynical, hardened mouth, I want you to know that you’re a pretty great kid. I’m plenty hard on you—your little […]

NaBloPoMo Day 4 — Grown People Music — What I’ve Learned from JAY Z’s 4:44

Though I’ve listened to plenty of rap since buying my first boombox in ’97, I’ve rarely heard anything representing me. Sure, it’s largely Black music, but from a different narrative than my life altogether. Middle-class. Raised in a two-parent home. Private school education, married with kids—nothing you’d want to hear about in […]

The 2016 100 Wrap-Up, Part 3: The 28 Things Left Over

And we’re finally here—the 28 items that either just didn’t make the cut to come back after 2016, or got tabled for future Casey to handle somewhere down the line! The more I do these, the more I realise I can’t do everything today, and so I work harder to focus […]

#stopCOMPAREnting — How Parents Keep it Real with Quaker Canada

Three years into parenthood, every new day’s an adventure, and the rules change as quickly as our kids do. We parents learn to do the best we can with what we’ve got, and with two sons whose faces light up whenever I get home from work, I’d say […]

Join Me at the Pampers #ThanksBaby Twitter Party for Father’s Day!

With Father’s Day on the approach, I’ve found myself thinking about fatherhood and everything I’ve learned about this lifestyle so far. It’s far different now than it’s ever been before—when writing this post, I’d been thinking on what it must’ve been like to raise kids in 1916, and the […]

Celebrating Mother’s Day with Pampers’ #ThanksBaby!

While I’m obviously no expert (Y chromosomes pretty much exclude me from experiencing the… “miracle” (?) of childbirth first-hand), I’ve learned a lot about motherhood through everything I’ve seen Sarah go through in our nearly 3-year journey as parents so far. As soon as that first baby hits […]

Netflix Stream Team, Season One Episode Four — Date Night? It’s ABOUT TIME!

So for this month’s post, we want to know what a “night in” looks like in your household. What you’re eating, how you’re sitting, where, when and what you’re watching, and ultimately how you keep the peace when it’s time to choose a show or movie. –Netflix Stream […]
