I gave up my 60 hour work weeks as a manager for a national retailer to become a stay at home dad to my little girl. I will share the good, the bad and the hilarious things that happen while I'm at home with her.

    on Aug 16, 2011
    When you read the title of this post, you may have thought, "Oh, great, another post about a screaming toddler who did something awful with poop!" But you'd be wrong. When I say "Just one of those days..." I am actually meaning it in a good way toda...
  • Death by Speed Coloring
    on Aug 12, 2011
    I think I am switching back to stone tablets as a requirement for coloring with a toddler.  My child must have A.D.D. because she takes her crayon (almost always red) and draws one line on a page from top to bottom, and then she will turn the pa...

  • Grandma is a Gummy Bear
    on Aug 9, 2011
    My daughter is at the special age where she is starting to recognize and name things.  Not just from repetition, but from actually seeing an object and recognizing what it is.  The play kitchen has been incredibly helpful with this because...

  • Creepy Kid's TV Moment #4 - Mr. Noseybonk
    on Aug 5, 2011
    I have a lot of new readers since the last Creepy Kid's TV Moments post, so I want to explain the process.  Some of the creepy shows will be shows that I watched as a kid and thought were creepy, and some of them, like today's story, are "discov...
  • No Fear of Death
    on Aug 2, 2011
    A crazy thing happened yesterday; well, a few crazy things happened yesterday.  First, it was the saddest day of the year.  Why?  Because yesterday was the last softball game on the schedule.  During the game, while playing first...
  • Our First Tea Party
    on Jul 29, 2011
    The morning started out like any other, but out of nowhere something amazing happened.  I woke up at 7:00AM sharp to the sound of the toddler alarm clock (which is very effective and always early).  I went to my daughter's room to get her c...
  • She's already manipulating!
    on Jul 26, 2011
    At exactly 16 months, my daughter launched phase one of her master plan to manipulate me into total submission.  And I almost fell for it! As I have mentioned before, my daughter has never been a fan of real milk straight from the jug.  ...
  • Where did that new bath toy come fr-OH MY GOSH!
    on Jul 22, 2011
    It took almost sixteen months, but it finally happened. As I watched my daughter playing in the tub the other night, a new toy appeared. But to my shock and awe, it was not, in fact, a toy. It was, in fact, a poop. That's right, she did it. Poope...
  • Book/Movie Review: Juno Baby
    on Jul 19, 2011
    I'm exhausted!  This week I am volunteering to lead recreation time at my church's VBS (vacation Bible school, for those of you unfamiliar with the lingo).  VBS is like a week of free daycare. Kids come to the church to sing, do crafts, pla...

  • CONTEST - iTunes gift card
    on Jul 12, 2011
    It seems like every blog is running a contest these days, so I thought it was time to join in the fun. This is a low budget blog, so we're starting small.  Some blogs make you do outrageous things for small prizes, but not me.  I'm not...
  • Creepy Kid's TV Moment #3 - Yogi Okey Dokey
    on Jul 8, 2011
    I went to You Tube this morning and searched for "creepy kids tv" and this was one of the first results. How did I miss this gem? Perhaps some of you saw this on "The Soup" blog, but I would like to break down this video a little more in depth, and...
  • Lack of Personal Space and Our Vacation to Hershey
    on Jul 5, 2011
    I could have titled this post "My Daughter's First Trip To Hershey's Chocolate World" and only told you about our great vacation. Or I could have titled it "Get Your Fanny Pack Off My Rear End" while describing the most disturbing part of my vacation...
  • Stuff Daddy Ruins: Zoe
    on Jul 1, 2011
    This is Zoe.  For those of you who do not know, Zoe is a character on Sesame Street.  As you can see in the picture above, Zoe has a very wispy, free-flowing hairstyle.  This represents her care-free attitude, I believe. Here are some...
  • Well Child Checkup
    on Jun 28, 2011
    Yesterday, I had the privilege of taking my daughter to her 15 month well child exam.  This was not my first doctor's appointment with her, but it was my first well child checkup.  After being weighed and measured, we went back to the room...

    on Jun 24, 2011
    I have introduced a poll to my blog, and it may come and go based on whether or not there are life-altering decisions to be made; however, for this post, I do find it useful and would appreciate any feedback you more experienced parents may have to o...
