Brad Hemmings

After a frustrating struggle with infertility, my wife and I were fortunate enough to finally became parents. It was then I decided to start a blog to document the progress of our son, since I didn’t want to miss a thing. (This “About Me” section has devolved into Aerosmith song lyrics.)

The tale of the Pizza Dip

Steel City Mom is proud to welcome back our buddy Tim. Lets sit back and enjoy what has been going on in his little corner of the earth……. I love my lady. I really do. For the first time in my life, I’m not running in the opposite direction of commitment. This alone should speak volumes. Now I needed to say that first in order for Read More →

Grandparenting

Get your tissues ready. Cliff is going to melt your heart………   I have indeed, fallen head over heels in love with my granddaughter and the idea that I am a grandfather. We raised three children into adulthood and all are (fairly) normal and healthy, quirky individuals who have made life an interesting, challenging and rewarding event. Then I was thrown an early curveball by Read More →

Picklesburgh – A two day event to celebrate the art of pickling.

Our own Cliff is at it again. Here is his take on Picklesburgh 2015   Now it’s not the event organizer or the County’s fault that this event fell on the hottest weekend Pittsburgh has experienced in the past two months but to have an event that will easily draw over five thousand people, on a bridge, is just the dumbest idea I have heard Read More →

Because you’re mine…… I walk the line

Well our buddy Tim had one of those days. Please give him some love and comment after you read. Enjoy!   ……… I feel compelled to write this post simply because I came Read More →

“Spare the rod and spoil the child.”

Cliff has more to say…. Before you get the pitch forks out,  take a minute to read what he is saying. You might not agree with him but he does have some great points. “Spare the rod and spoil the child.” Words that were written in a poem by Samuel Butler in 1664 that should have been a sign post for parents through time.

Just a 2 year old and a tablet

Welcome to our guest blogger Cliff……. Yes my two year old granddaughter has a tablet and she knows how to use it fairly well too. I’m tired of hearing about the evils of electronic devices and how they are bad for children, especially at a young age. Hailey still loves to color and draw and do a myriad of other things that two year olds Read More →

Hide and Seek

Tim is at it again 🙂   I love my lady, hands down, and I would do anything for her. With her these past many months have been a blast… A blur, but non-the-less a blast. With that said, I’m sitting on my throne with my laptop hiding from her little Tornado, and Hurricane. Soap drips from the ceiling, and wadded up wet poo paper Read More →

He Who Must Not Be Named

Our 1st Guest Post….. welcome Tim to our team! In the morning of the recent passing of Happy Pappy Day, it was brought to my attention, I have become He who must not be named. From what I have gathered as I’ve mulled over the details in my mind, I have yet to comprehend the magnitude of these events. So in an effort to self Read More →
