The BIG Career Change–from desk to diapers

The Houtz Family

So…you married a doctor. All of your buddies are ‘high-fiving’ you since, now, YOU just made ‘easy street’. Mom and dad are holding that straight face around company, and whisper to one another how smart their boy is behind closed doors. Sure, maybe you won’t have to worry as much about affording braces but like everything in life, nothing good comes free. And there is a cost closing in on those couples planning to have a family.

How Frozen Should Have Ended

I have 3 girls under 8!  So as you can imagine we have seen Disney’s movie, FROZEN, about 2,753 times.  But that’s ok… here I stand… the song doesn’t bother me anyway! (now the song is stuck in your head…;)

A Holiday Disruption


A version of this story appeared at It contains some adult language, for which I suspect you’ll forgive me.

As a caretaker dad running a business, married to a severely overworked physician, I think about time the way most people think about oxygen— or at least the way they’d think about it if they were trapped underwater. Fairly ordinary scheduling issues have the potential to plunge this household into chaos for days. When we do business, we need to find no-nonsense professionals on their A game.

Recently, we went to Sears instead.

The Little Einsteins are Tearing This Family Apart


This post has a small amount of strong language. I feel like I’ve earned it.

If you’re not already familiar with Disney’s Little Einsteins series, that’s no reason for you to come here and rub it in…
