Successfully Working from Home Can be Tricky

I have worked from home full or part-time for the past 7(ish) years and I have learned a lot about how to be successful working in the same location you eat, sleep, watch TV, and play. A lot of people think working from home would be the best thing ever…while others are terrified of the…

Potty Training, A One-Eyed Dog and Garth Brooks

It has been quite a week. My wife and I have been (impatiently) waiting on Ian to become interested in potty training. All of our friends have warned us about boys being difficult, and they have said it would just all of a sudden take hold. Well they were right…sort of. Potty training is at…

Deuces 2014

2014 was quite the year for the Moore family. As Ian turned two we got to experience a lot of firsts for him through his eyes. Those things as adults we take for granted, maybe even annoying were met by him with anticipation, excitement and splendor. Our little man is developing a fun-loving personality while…

5 days in…jump in the fire!

I new when I decided to change careers for the third time things would be different…and they certainly have been.  When you go from a boutique advertising agency to a large development company nothing really is the same…except the wardrobe.  I know my father still has trouble with the fact I wear jeans and sometimes…

New Chapter

4 years ago I decided to leave a career in the professional association world that was comfortable and in an arena in which I excelled in.  I was knowledgeable of the industry, I had gained expertise in the areas of marketing and management and outside of running an association myself I felt like I was…

I miss you Lukas.

Last week my second son, Ian turned two!  He is developing a wonderful personality and he talks up a storm.  Probably my fault there.  We like to tell stories in the Moore family.  I absolutely LOVE watching this little man grow up each day.  It truly does go fast. Yesterday I traveled to meet with…

One Year. #IanTurnsOne

As I write this post I can’t believe that it has been 6 months since I last made a post.  A lot has happened over the last 6 months that I can’t even cover in a post.  What I can do is talk about my first year as a father to Ian. That’s right…today is…

6 months

Today Ian passes the 6 month mark.  He is starting to sit up, roll over, roll over, then roll over and give us a laugh and make some crazy noises.  He is even getting some hair on that flat head of his.  Last night he gave us a treat and slept all night for the…

Father’s Day – number 2

Well here it is…Father’s Day. I have to admit this is pretty exciting for me.  Nothing planned really.  I do get to spend the day with my dad and my boy and that is really all that matters.  Most people will consider this my first Father’s Day since Ian was born just shy of 4…

the Due Date

Well here we are…March 21. Ian’s official due date.  I can’t express enough how happy I am that he is a growing, healthy, happy baby boy.  I also can’t express enough how happy I am that on his due date he is already 3 weeks old! There is simply NO WAY Kami and I could…

Finally.

I am not sure why I quit blogging over the last few months.  I think maybe there was some fear in there…some of my old baseball player superstition sneaking in maybe.  You see things were going so well for Kami and her pregnancy that I really didn’t even want to talk about it.   Well…

Nesting…maybe

Things have been going really well for Kami and little Ian lately and we are getting very close to 30 weeks into this pregnancy.  That means we are getting into crunch time as should probably start to prepare for actually bringing this little man home with us!  While exciting it is hard to wrap my…
