LOLs: An Illustrated Guide

Posted by on April 15th, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Posted by on April 9th, 2014, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

“Garwic smewws wike skunk and poop.” -Lucas (2013, 4.5 years old)  I love garlic, but I can understand that it’s a bit showy as far as smells go. The funny thing about my son’s description is that I had to wonder for a sec whether this meant he didn’t like the smell of garlic. Some […]

My Wife Just Said… #155

Posted by on April 7th, 2014, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

“Um. Can I go out in this?” -Elizabeth   There she stood at the front door, posing for me to see. She was wearing colorful, patterned leggings, rain boots, a baggy sweater and a mismatched purse. I frowned as I looked her over and then smiled and said, “Sure!” The fact that I was wearing […]

My Batkid Just Said… #42

Posted by on March 25th, 2014, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

“Weww… I din’n’t actuaw-wy save da city.” But you saved me. “Why?” You just did. “Oh!” [Runs off smiling] -Lucas (2014, 4.5 years old)   He’s such a well-mannered little superhero. It’s funny to think that our kids will never really know how much they saved us. Even when they have their own kids, I […]
