“DIAGON ALLEY!!! I’m never coming home. Seriously, I almost cried when we entered.” -Avara   Courage. Compassion. Imagination. Friendship. Achievement. Books can help unlock these ideals in ways no amount of conversation or browbeating could ever hope to accomplish. We’re big storytellers at our house. As Finn got older, I felt an internal countdown to being […]

“After that episode of Game of Thrones I need to watch some Little House on the Prairie.” –Elizabeth We’re addicted to Game of Thrones. A LOT of people are. (Fear not, this is all spoiler-free.) It’s is an intense series, but it’s definitely not for everyone. Any given show can easily get the beefiest lumberjack […]

“It’s after 7:30am and both my boys are still asleep. An hour to hour and a half later than their normal wakeup time. But then I remembered it’s MONDAY. Of course they’re sleeping in…” -Avara   We made a little agreement with my oldest son that he DOES NOT come into our room before 7am. So, […]

[wife’s ringtone plays] Me: “Heeeeyyyyy, sexy pants.” My 5yo son: “Daddy?” Me: [coughs] “Oh hey there, little guy!” –Lucas (aka Not My Wife) The phone can no longer be trusted, I have no assurances it’s actually going to be my wife anymore. Even during a school day I now have to wonder, maybe he left […]

“Not really sure I have it in me to deal with faulty cinnamon rolls before my morning caffeine.” -Avara   My wife and I have been on a strict diet for the past two weeks. There isn’t much worse than having to prepare delicious, carbtastic foods for your kids. And my wife likes to give our […]

“Your dog is so cute! It’s scary how cute your dog is.” -Elizabeth   We were strolling along the shops and restaurants of the main street in Old Towne. Suddenly, my wife gasps and my heart does a belly flop, thinking the lad fell or there was a vicious wasp strafing us. Nope. Just a […]

“Whoville called. They want their baby back.” -Avara   I may be biased but both of my boys are pretty damn cute. One of the coolest things about this parenting gig is how differently each of their personalities have evolved. So very different. There are repetitious moments with our second son, Arden, but they never pay […]

“Remember when you proposed?” [sighs] “And you got down on your hands and knees…WAIT! I mean your KNEE!“ -Elizabeth   Someone was able to capture the reaction, but unfortunately there is no photo evidence that I was only on my knee to ask for her hand. After she caught her word slip, we both exploded […]

“My week. Both kids. Uncle!” -Avara   Balance is a four letter word these days. We’re tapped out. If this were a wrestling match, which it mostly is with our kids, then we’d be the folding chair thrown at an opponent and knocking him out. All of us got sick. All of us have commitments. Any […]

“To kids, everything is allowed until someone says it’s not allowed.” [to our son] “Hey, honey! That’s not allowed.” -Elizabeth   As parent’s we’re the “supposed to” and “not allowed” police for our kids. They don’t tend to see or care about the bad in a lot of ideas they have. Whacking a bush full […]
