Kids Deserve Honesty, Right?

Hola Bitcholas, Up until I had kids I was never good around kids. They just don't make sense and they have too many questions and all that. Now I HAVE kids and they confirm that children are, in fact, nonsensical and inquisitive. But I like them. Anyway, I have those moments where I just have to be...

The Other Football a Plenty

Hola Bitcholas, As a fan of soccer and a Sounders season ticket holder I should be ecstatic about the idea of going to three different games this weekend. Sadly, the Sounders don't figure into it. No, my son, Lil' Pele, has THREE games this weekend. Three. Two on Saturday and one on Sunday. I'm...

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Hola Bitcholas, Heading to the Mariners/ Orioles game tonight at Safeco. No big deal except that I'm wearing my O's gear. I RARELY wear things with logos or anything at work. No real reason for that, but I generally keep that kinda stuff for the weekends. Anyway, today I'm going to the game and...

Burn, Baby, Burn!

Hola, Bitcholas, Today is Monday and it feels that way. Not a bad day, per se, but I've been dragging ass. Went to bed with the hiccups (nothing new) which became heartburn. Again, not uncommon, but no Tums! Turns out that mixing baking soda and water is a good way to kill heartburn. It's also a...

Thrill is a Dull Boy

Hola Bitcholas, I am f**king tired today. Yep. My daughter started complaining that she didn't feel good on Sunday. She didn't have a temperature AND she has a knack for melodrama, so I just chalked it up to being tired. If you're a parent, then you know that "tired", as it applies to children, can...

Kids Want the Darndest Things

Hola Bitcholas, First, thank you everyone for the exceptionally kind words regarding our 3000th show. The outpouring was unexpected and very humbling. That said, today was our 3001st show! That's one MORE than 3000 and we got nothin'! Nothin', I say. I mean, if 3000 is a big deal, then certainly...

The Rob Thomas Promise

Hola Bitcholas, Happy Monday and all that. Actually, Mondays don't bother me so much. I should add that I've felt that way even BEFORE I had kids. Well, before kids and after getting into radio. Before radio, I cooked for a living and hated every second of it. Just not my jam. As a result of my...

Snow Day for Daddy?

Hola Bitcholas, ​Word has it that my kids are finally going to go back to school tomorrow. I've lost track of how many days they've been off but it's been plenty. The thing that occurred to me today was what snow is in the eyes of a school-aged child. I never really considered it until today, but...

Trauma Starts Under Your Bed

Hola Bitcholas, Today we talked about 'kids being kids' moments...whether it's kids of your own or you as a kid. The question was inspired by myriad of different stories; 'kid calls 911 for help with homework...'kid calls 911 because he got snow pants for Christmas'... 'kid gets lost in forest for...

Who is The Who?

Hola Bitcholas, As a parent, there are all manner of small, magical moments you get to enjoy with your kids. Some, you have to manufacture, like taking them to Disney or some comparable bullsh*t. Other times it's a moment when your kid discovers (and appreciates) something YOU enjoy. Case-in-point...
