Part of my job as dad is to teach my kids to talk good with proper grammar. By my last sentence, you can already tell I’m not the most qualified at this position but some things are obvious to even me. My 2 year old has been notorious for starting sentences out with “me want.” Me want a snack, me want a toy, me want to go to the bathroom, me want, me want. Continue reading Me Want
Four years ago on October 20, 2012 I was where I am many Saturdays in the fall, in The Swamp, watching the Florida Gators play football. We were playing South Carolina and it was an important conference game. The Gators were doing well. With about 3 minutes to go in the first half, I got a text from my wife. It read: “I’m going into labor, I’m headed to the hospital now.” Continue reading There’s just something about a dad and his little girl
I needed to go get my daughter’s birth certificate today. She’s about to turn 4 and somehow I hadn’t needed it up until now. But now I did need it, so I figured I’d load up the crew and go get it. I would also get the two younger boys’ birth certificates as well since I’d already be there. Continue reading Diaper Backpack
Here is the latest episode from our playground. I actually filmed it the same day as episode 5 in case you are wondering why we are all wearing the same clothes. It’s hard to have a serious conversation with these 4 crazy kids. And there is something about a camera that makes kids lose their minds.
Oh well, here it is. I hope you enjoy it. Have a great week!
I’ve never been a morning person. Ever. Everyday as a kid getting up for school was such a battle. I can remember dragging myself downstairs to the kitchen table and falling back asleep waiting for my mom or dad to get me a bowl of cereal or a pop tart or whatever I was eating that morning. I would get 10 hours of sleep, so it wasn’t like I needed to go to bed earlier. It just took me a while to get my body in gear. It still does.
Well, my kids don’t have this problem. Continue reading Why does the morning happen so early?
My four year old goes to Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) 3 days a week for 5 hours. It’s a program our state pays for to get kids ready for Kindergarten. Or in my case, give me 5 hours of a break 3 days a week. The school he goes to is very close and only takes a few minutes to get to by car. Even though the ride is short, there is something about that trip home from school that has produced some of the funniest comments from him. Continue reading Funny Comments from the Back Seat
As the days are counting down until our fifth baby is due I realized I needed to get my bag ready, the bag that I’ll take with me to the hospital when my wife goes into labor. It’s well documented what you need to take for mom and the baby but dad is often overlooked in all of this.
So I have decided to put together my Dad’s Guide to Packing for the Maternity Ward. Continue reading A Dad’s Guide to Packing for the Maternity Ward
