Some Quick Notes and A Call for Titles
Before I get to the main part of the post, a quick story, because it’s been a while since I embarrassed my kids. After school today, my boys took part in a Halloween party. Normally, this wouldn’t be much to comment about. However, things never seem to travel along a normal path around here. To…Read More
Short and Sweet
This week I’m mixing things up a bit. One quick story and then something cool. The Story I had the opportunity to have a catch with my oldest on Saturday. It’s been a while since we threw the ball around, and it was a perfect Autumn day for it. We talked a little about stuff,…Read More
O’ Brother Where Art Thou
For those that don’t know, I have a younger brother. Growing up, we had what I would term a typical older brother-younger brother relationship. If he wasn’t too annoying, I would allow him to hang out with me and my friends. When he was bothersome, my joy in having him around lessened greatly. For the…Read More
The Prodigal Son Returns
A lot has happened since my last blog entry. I must apologize for taking a mini sabbatical, but life and such does sometimes get in the way. In 1981 Styx said “I’ve got too much time on my hands”. They obviously didn’t have 2 small children starting their school year at the time. Not to…Read More
All Your Song Are Belong to Us!
The Little Guy turns six this week. Hard to believe that he’s only a few weeks from starting first grade. Time waits for no man. Or woman as the case might be. I digress. So, for his present we decided to get him an iPod. He loves music and listens, sings, dances around the house…Read More
On Backbone (In a Good Way)
My boys go to camp during the summer. It’s a great camp and the people there really care about the boys. For their part, the boys love it at camp. Everything’s all hunky-dory and what not. Or at least it was. Last week we found out that there was a child in The Boy’s bunk…Read More
What’s All This About Circles?
If you’ve been following the blog, you should know that my younger son, The Little One, sees the world differently than the rest of the family. We try to reach out to him in all different kinds of ways, music, art, games, and of course, books. One of my favorites to read with him is…Read More
Now, For Something Completely Different.
I like to watch movies. Good ones, bad ones, terrible ones. Sometimes it’s the terrible ones that I end up enjoying the most. Sometimes a movie I love is one that is universally panned. One of my all-time favorite movies received the following reviews: Entertainment Weekly gave it an F and had this to say. The…Read More
I freely admit to being a bit of an Apple fanboy. Not as much as I used to be, but I do have a lot of Apple products in my house. In 1997 Apple began an advertising campaign called Think Different. It lasted about five years. You may remember it. I got to thinking about…Read More
My kid is a What?
When The Boy was 2 we had a series of incidents at his daycare. He had a friend that he had spent every day with since they were about 6 weeks old. This boy’s parent stopped talking to The Wife and I, and rumors started flowing around the daycare. We eventually found out that our…Read More
