Put Me In Coach… I’m Ready To Play

The Boys On The Teeball Field

Summer is in full swing and in our household that means BASEBALL!  Both of the boys started their t-ball seasons last week which for those non-parents out there is just an awesome experience.  G had played last year, but this is the first time out for C and I’m happy to say that so far he seems to really be enjoying it. Naturally nothing in life is easy so we weren’t thrilled to find out … Continue reading

Top 10 From The First 5

G At Age 5

Today’s the G-man’s 5th birthday!  The kid simply doesn’t sleep these days so even though he went to bed at near 10:00 PM last night, he was up this AM at around 6:30.  I figured I’d cut him some slack this morning cause hell… it’s his birthday!  As it’s his 5th birthday, today also happens to be the anniversary of our first day as parents.  To that end, I decided to put this quick list … Continue reading

In my defense, I grew up … Continue reading

5 Random Photos From My iPhone

I recently got a new Verizon iPhone 4 for work purposes so I’m officially out of the Blackberry nation.  I have to say that I enjoyed my Blackberry but now that I’m used to it this iPhone is just SO… MUCH… BETTER.  There are a ton of iPhone reviews out there so I won’t bother going into it here.  The biggest upgrade that I see from my Curve 2 is the camera.  This thing is … Continue reading

Why Kids Are Great: The (Temporary) Ego Boost

The Package

I’ve often said how much I enjoy being a dad.  Every day these two yahoos say or do something that makes me laugh and today was no exception. As I was getting out of the shower this morning, C strolled in and said, “Daddy… your penis is so long!” Oh… if their mother would only say the same thing.  Now keep in mind he’s two and a half so he doesn’t really have a whole … Continue reading

Ladies Watch Out, The G-Man’s Got Game

G Pimpin (1)

In a previous post, I relayed a story about how G was turning into quite the little pimp.  I’m here a couple of months later to let you know that he’s not slowed down at all… in fact he’s upped his game.  BIG TIME. Over the last couple of weeks, there have been a couple of examples of G showing his pimp hand but there were two in particular that stand out.  First are from … Continue reading

All Of A Sudden, I’m “That” Neighbor

Grumpy Neighbor

I just don’t get it.  I don’t know when it happened.  I don’t know why it happened.  But I’ve become “that” neighbor.  The neighbor that doesn’t want the neighborhood kids walking through his yard.  Now don’t get me wrong.  I love kids.  I’ve got two of my own.  But there is not many things that I find more irritating than sitting in my living room and watching kids run through my backyard.  What… the… fuck!  … Continue reading
