Dad, husband, father-in-law…whatever kind of daddy you are, have a GREAT day.

Happy Father’s Day!

The crack down

June 8th, 2009

Seriously…I’m not sure if I would want to live at my house if I were a kid.

We have kicked off the summer with cleaning chores for everyone, everyday.  Why should I have to do it all?  Once said chores are done, we can move onto fun times.

Now we have also started our Summer Adventure List and the hope is we choose one fun thing to do a week (depending on the week).  These things range from bike rides to the Sculpture Garden to The MOA to hiking and going to the zoo.

But then there is this fighting that keeps happening.  So we have made a rule.

Rule:  If you fight and you can’t resolve it, BOTH parties go to their room and stay there until I say they can come out.  I have found waiting until the next meal allows them to really think about what they have done.

How this summer goes is totally up to the choices these kids make.  Get along…we will do real fine.  Fight…you will find out just how much paint was put on the walls of your room.

I’ll keep you posted.

Teeth

May 14th, 2009

I don’t know much about the Dad’s father, he died before I was born.

But the two things that I do know are these:  he worked as a bellhop for most of his life at a very fancy hotel in Ohio and he always told my dad to make sure to check a woman’s teeth before he married her.

Tooth Fairy Whore

That horrid nasty wretch of a creature, how on earth could she have forgotten my baby girl’s front tooth? Leaving her sobbing and heaving with tear soaked sheets this morning.

It must have been the weather.
