Lesson Number 2365

Posted in Adorable Emily, Adorable Ethan, Adorable Kids, Adorable Life, Adorably Random | Comments Off on Lesson Number 2365

Children don’t understand privacy. Yesterday I was using the restroom when my 4 year old came home. She proceeded to tell me she needed to use the restroom. When I told her I’d be right out. She said “it’s OK daddy, I’ll just sit here with you and wait”.


Kite Flying and Slow Dancing

Posted in Adorable Emily, Adorable Ethan | 4 Comments »

This week marks a number of “first”.  Earlier in the week, I shared my first slow dance with Emily.  I was playing a song by Brandon Heath (now featured on the main page of our site) and Emily looked up at me.  I asked if she wanted to dance and the rest was history.  It will forever be a memory that is burned in my brain.

Emily's first time flying a kite!

Today marked another first.  We had a family picnic and thanks to Aunt Michelle, we flew kites for the first time!!!  Emily loved it.  She kept saying “look daddy, I’m doing it”.  I would respond with, “excellent job pumpkin, you’re awesome”.  The rest of the day she couldn’t stop telling me how “awesome” I was.

Ethan has been talking like crazy since Grandma and Grandpa were in town.  He now says (clearly) Yellow, Purple, Ball, Baby, Door, Dora, Bubbles, Thank You, Emmy, Airplane, NO and the list goes on and on.  It’s adorable!

Daddy Daycare Weekend …

Posted in Adorable Emily, Adorable Ethan | Comments Off on Daddy Daycare Weekend …

I had a wonderful weekend with the kids!  Jennifer enjoyed some MUCH needed time off on Saturday so it was me and the kids.  We ate, drank beer, watched football and sat in our underwear.

Ok, so maybe not all of above but you get the idea.  It really was a awesome day.  A comment on my Facebook got me thinking though.  Why is it called “Daddy Daycare” when dad watches the kids and “Life” when mom does it?  With that said, I’d like to retract earlier comments made about “Daddy Daycare” and instead call it “Daddy Daughter and Son Time”.  Doesn’t have the same ring but you get the point.

Baby GirlI was looking through some old photos and found the picture at right.  I can hardly remember a day without Emily (and Ethan of course) in my life.  This photo was taken late March of 2007.  I was in love with her the first time I saw her.

If I could find a way to freeze time (or at least slow it down), I’d be a happy man! :)

Something Funny Happened Last Night…

Posted in Adorable Emily | Comments Off on Something Funny Happened Last Night…

As each day passes, I find myself acting more and more like a 60 year old man.  I’ve been going to bed at 9PM.  Yes, 9PM.  In college, at 9PM I’d hop in the shower and get ready for a night out!  At any rate, I feel asleep early and woke up around 11:30PM to the sight of Emily laying next to me.  She was fast asleep in dream land.  So here’s the “funny part”…  She started giggling and then said clear as day, “more Einsteins” in her sleep.  I laughed so hard since the Little Einsteins have been VERY popular in our house lately.
