The Man of the Minivan

First off, thanks for visiting. I know that there are plenty of other websites where you could be wasting your time, so I’m honored that you’ve temporarily selected mine to burn valuable minutes off of your life. My name is Chris, and I am a fortunate father of three boys, a husband to a wonderful wife, and human companion to an overweight miniature schnauzer. In my free time (insert sarcastic laugh here), I enjoy writing, photography, exercising (insert second sarcastic laugh here), and spending time with my family.

As far as what I write about, don’t look for anything consistent. However, if you are one of those ‘detail-oriented’ folks, you’ll probably sense a pattern of parenthood, current events, self-help (as in, ‘I help myself by ‘x”), and my opinion. This is an outlet for me, first and foremost, so I apologize in advance if what you see here isn’t up-to-par with your literary or grammatical standards.

However, if you are one of those folks that appreciates what I’m delivering here, feel free to follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or drop me a line. It’s always nice to network with like-minded individuals.

  6. We have two miniature schnauzers! Love the breed!!

      Excellent! Ours isn’t so miniature anymore, but she’s happy and sweet to the kids, so we’re all set there! :)

  7. Just found you on FP, congrats. Love what I’ve read so far, so following along. You are a man after my own heart – parenting wise that is. My 3 boys are all older, but still… ‘boys will be boys’ lol!! sorry, had to say that,although i hate the term.

    • Chris said:

      Thank you! :) lol – It’s ok, I’ll overlook the ‘boys will be boys’ comment ;) haha

  8. You have the family dynamics my husband and I hope for one day. Three boys and a schnauzer : )
    Still working on the last two boys, and maybe when we get a bigger place, we’ll get the dog… Blessings to your family.

    • Chris said:

      Thanks Mama Bear – our miniature schnauzer is anything but, considering that she circles under the twins’ for food that they (graciously) drop on the floor. Have a great day! :)
