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

Circumcision By Toilet Seat

Shark Toilet Seat

Attention guys: this is going to hurt just to read it… you’ve been warned. I just got back from our yearly trip to Naples, Florida (more on that to come).  I was delayed getting out of Cleveland so I didn’t get in to Naples until around 2:15 AM on Wednesday (huge thanks to my father-in-law for picking me up).  Obviously the boys were sleeping so I didn’t get to see them that night.  The next … Continue reading

A Weekend With The Boys – Part II

The Boys

In my previous post I detailed the events of Friday and Saturday evening with my boys.  By my count Super Dad (yours truly) was behind in the scoring 2 to 4.  I’d been beaten pretty badly but I hit the ground running on Sunday morning ready for a comeback.

A Weekend With The Boys – Part I

Amanda was in … Continue reading

Nearly Impossible Parenting Task #3,720

My Boys At The Home Depot

The weekends are awesome.  I don’t have to go to work and I get to spend time with my family.  Both my boys (especially my oldest) LOVE going to Home Depot.  They’ve got these awesome carts there that look like a NASCAR which allows both boys to “drive” around the store. So this past weekend the three of us gave Mom some alone time and we headed off to “The Depot”.  One thing that I … Continue reading

Going Green Or Going To Hell???

Recycling Logo

One of the biggest thrills in my (nearly) 3 year old’s life is helping daddy take the garbage out on Monday night.  He talks about it all week long and then gets so excited when the day comes.  We go from room to room collecting the garbage and the recycling and then make multiple trips down to the end of the driveway to take it out.  The entire time he’s laughing, smiling, waving to mom … Continue reading
