Chatting with Casey 0009 — The Life and Times of the Single Mom

And then you have the times where you fall off the wagon and scramble to find the way back onto your path. I never wanted to step away from podcasting as long as I did, but my life had other things in mind. Summertime trips. An office workload dialled up […]

Doing Potty Training Right Thanks to Kandoo Flushable Wipes!

And then you have the parenting situations that play out in slow motion. Like when your kid’s about to fall and smash their head on something hard. Or when they’re about to break something you can’t afford to replace! But for me, one moment that happened recently was my two-year-old’s ill-timed […]

Chatting with Casey 0006 — Everybody Wants to be Fabulous

And then sometimes you need to take a step back and handle your ish. With Father’s Day come and gone for 2018, I was finally free to take stock of everything going on in the rest of my life, and it was a mess. A to-do list 270 items deep. […]

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 […]

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 […]

That Parent Life Isn’t So Hard with Pampers Rewards!

There’s no way we’d make it this far as parents if it weren’t for the community of peers that built up around us. You likely won’t appreciate this if you haven’t had kids yourself, but it’s a life change that can prove very isolating for new parents! The friends without […]

Getting a Good Dose of Shuteye Thanks to Pampers Baby Dry!

Let’s be real—every parent dreams of the day they aren’t dealing with diapers anymore. I mean, you get all sorts of kids in those early years—the ones totally okay wearing a soiled diaper even though it’s clearly not a good idea. The ones who freak out over a wet diaper, […]

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 Casey and Family — NaBloPoMo Day 3 — Out of the Mouths of Babes.

“Fuckshit.” I didn’t know it then, but before my eldest started junior kindergarten this September, life was simple. Taking an extra eight months away from the office after her mat leave to be with the boys (and because two kids in Toronto daycare is really expensive), Sarah took the […]
