Pete Hanson

I'm just a regular Minnesota guy that grew up on the north-side of the Cities (Fridley), spent some quality time at the U of M, chill on the weekends at the family cabin near Duluth, bleed Vikings purple, and miss the North Stars. I have a short attention span; and enjoy Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown, 80s hair bands, coffee, beer, scotch, and long sunset walks on the beach. (One of those isn't true.) I'm a two-time cancer survivor now (Colorectal 2002, Kidney 2014), and know that life is damn short -- so by all means we should be playing as hard and as often as we can. I think that's it. (Did I mention that I have a short attention span?) Hit me up below on Facebook & Twitter.

What Did You Say ‘Your Kids Would Never Do’ — And Then Caved?

It's been quite a while since I had a small child running around. My daughter is grown and has kids of her own now, but there was a time when I was all idealistic -- and had a list of things, "My kids would never do," (behave that way in public, eat junk food, watch too much TV, etc). Funny to look back. What were your 'My Kid Will Nevers?' Did you cave?
