Why do we do this to each other? We sit through baby showers and watch as the mother-to-be opens, let's say, a brand new pack-and-play; meanwhile, I have four at home she could have.

High school graduation etiquette involves several steps, for both future graduates and their friends and family.

Sometimes I'm bumbling through airport security with three daughters, diapers and pacifiers flying in all directions; sometimes I'm flying luxuriously solo, rocking my wireless office. Both of these types of Dad-travel require different levels of preparedness and equipment.
I'll admit it; I suffer from this disease, which I just coined. It's an affliction that has netted me numerous eye rolls and shouts of, "Come on, we're two holes behind," from my playing partners as they watch me hunched over a fairway lake's edge with my extendable pole/plastic scoop thingy.
