Everyone’s favorite holiday is tomorrow, right? But for the kids where we live (the town, not the home), it’s been a week-long celebration of Halloween Unit is being Minion Bob, despite the fact that the goggles that came with the costume leave red marks around his eyes. G is going as a Sock Monkey, since, ya… More On tap all week: Halloween
I know I’ve lost likely 99.9% of my readers in the past five months with my prolonged absence, and that’s to be expected. Staying home and raising one-and-a-half and four-and-a-half year old boys is not very conducive to a lot of free time for writing, not for me, at least. I spent my time outdoors, at… More No longer a full-time stay-at-home dad. For now.
Yesterday was good day. It started off a little chilly and cloudy but warmed up slightly by time we left for church. I was hoping to get some yard work done since, during the week, it’s tough when you’ve got an 11-month-old strapped to your chest while you’re trying to corral your miniature dachshund who enjoys… More Yard work or the bar?
For the first time in forever, the weather and lack of snow allowed us a trip to the park. Yes, it’s April 2 and it’s the FIRST time we’ve been at a park since December. The morning was looking a little bleak as the clouds kept the temperature down a bit but hell if I was going to stay… More First day at the park, it’s beginning to feel like Spring
What time of day do you think of when you hear, “What is the toughest/worst time of day?” If you think I’m talking about the middle-of-the-night scream sessions by G-Man or the (sometimes) 5:40am knocks on the wall from Unit, you’re one-hundred percent incorrect. The toughest time of the day to get through for me, as… More The TOUGHEST time of day is…?
I just looked at my previous post date (almost two months ago) and nearly fell off my couch. OK, that’s a false statement, I almost fell asleep, but that’s because I worked at Dunkin last night from midnight to 6am and am freaking exhausted. Somewhere around Halloween of last year I took on an overnight… More Rubbermaid, for all of your food storage
Like most every kids, Unit has his fair share of stuffed animals. And quirks. His bed looks like it’s been invaded by cotton-filled creatures but he still digs in and carves out a nice little spot for himself to sleep every day and night. And the nightstand next to his bed, that’s got some collection of… More Unit, in all his quirky glory
The teeth aren’t quite through yet despite us thinking that for the past two months G-Man’s been teething. Regardless, it seems like anything and everything he can get his little mitts on he puts in his mouth. Here’s a rundown of things he’s put in his mouth, mind you I am within a few feet… More Things my 5-month-old puts in his mouth
I had an epiphany this afternoon while getting ripped off for Halloween candy: Why don’t I just buy throughout the year when candy is on sale instead of paying $13.99 for a giant bag of candy that we’ll likely eat 40% of? (and no, I DID NOT buy the $13.99 bag of candy). The answer:… More Halloween candy = highway robbery (and Skittles won the tourney)
Excuse me while I deviate from the norm. I love my wife and kids very much, but I also have quite the sweet tooth and with Halloween right around the corner, who doesn’t love a bracketed tournament pertaining to the candy your kids (and you) will wind up gorging on on Friday night (and Saturday… More 2014 Halloween Candy Madness
