The director of the University of Dayton's Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop is a prolific author whose smile-inducing words have been published in a variety of sources, spanning The Christian Science Monitor
, newspapers, magazines, and the Web. But more important than even his first book, In the Beginning ... There Were No Diapers
, Tim is the active dad of four. Here's more from his profile:
"Tim Bete (pronounced 'beet') writes about where he lives in his award-winning parenting humor column. His column provides sage advice on topics such as how to give your kitchen a faux-finished, sponge-painted, crackle look by serving your children a lunch consisting entirely of condiments, substituting paint brushes for forks and spoons, and leaving the house for an hour. (The crackle finish will appear after the mustard dries.)"
Tim releases a new happy pappy piece every week and fathers an online archive with a dozen or so previous selections.
