I believe, at least in the south, every dad dreams to some extent of their kids growing up to be sports stars. I have no clue why this is, most truly exceptional athletes I have met in my life are complete a-holes**, which is not something I want any kid of mine to be known […]
Many lifetimes ago before I met my baby momma or daughter I was just another broke college student trying to find out what I wanted to become (as opposed to now where I am a broke dad trying to find out what I want to become). For no real reason other than the subjects fascinated […]
Usually I keep all the sappy junk away from this little space. Truth be told I don’t think in sappy terms most of the time, so that is probably half the reason. But today is Valentine’s day. So either like it or get over it.
There is this magical way of forgetting the way things […]
There is a little irony in the way things turn out. When the baby girl was still fresh from the baby factory every time we would take her clothes off (bath, diaper change, volcanic eruption) she would scream and cry as if she had been neglected in a dark cave after the apocalypse for a […]

It was inevitable.
With all of the moving and bouncing around the girl does it was only a matter of time before she hit something. I was just desperately hoping it was not on my watch that she did it.
There have been a few times when she has fallen back too hard and […]
Today was a day, like many days here lately, I had just one blog post in mind. I sat down and posted a blog post that I wrote last night and decided to write my typical dry humor account of something that happen last night shortly after that post was written.
This is not […]
I am certainly not the one to start any interior decorating or remodling blog. I’ll return to my normal absurdness and cute daughter posting after this brief intermission. But I am sort of proud of my new bathroom. Mostly because it does not look like a Pepto Bismol bottle threw up all over it.
