“Someone please tell Vader he left his helmet in the bathroom again.” -Avara   I’ve done a pretty good job of making my family as geeky as possible. Not a day goes by that one of us doesn’t reference Star Wars or a similar cadre of geek literature, films or otherwise. And being a geek or […]

“That moment when you buy your baby his first vintage rock T-shirt & the band comes on the radio & he proceeds to dance along (baby style).” -Avara   Avara and I constantly remark how amazing our boys’ style has always been. I’m constantly envious of my kids’ clothing and toys. If only we were in […]

“Real Jedis use their hands. And feet.” -Avara   Finn has gotten so fixated on things being certain ways.

“If I wrote a parenting book, it would be called ‘Tickles and Timeouts.’” -Avara   Ever have one of those days that has an intense mix of tickles and timeouts? That’s us this weekend. Moments were so fun and enjoyable. Others were frustrating and mind-numbing. This seems to be the way of the parenting world. Friday. […]

“The circus called. They want their baby back…” -Avara   My boys are a unique kind of creature. Intensely cuddly, immensely vulnerable and singularly desirous of putting themselves in harm’s way by climbing, running or otherwise tumbling into trouble. They like to push the envelope, and we like to make sure that envelope is sealed. Calculated […]

“I feel sad for all the babies out there who don’t have mamas or dadas to soothe them when they’re sick. And I feel grateful I’m able to do that for ours… And I need sleep.” -Avara   The flu hit us, the whole family, pretty hard over the last 3-4 days. I rang in the […]

“Babies would be great, and I’d have more of them, if they just cleaned up after themselves.” -Avara   Arden approves!😍 A photo posted by Avara Capen (@ithrowtp) on Dec 12, 2014 at 1:44pm PST Is it just completely insane that the thought comes into our heads, from time to time, that more kids could even […]

Don’t they know I want to wrestle with their mom? She always wins, of course. But that’s just because we’ve been together for almost 15 years. And she’s smarter than me. And better at wrestling. – Previous “My Wife Just Said…” What does a human jungle gym look like exactly?   Follow us on Facebook. […]

“Moved two days ago and still can’t find my underwear. Thanks for lending me yours, honey. #movingwithkids” -Avara   A photo posted by Avara Capen (@ithrowtp) on Nov 11, 2014 at 9:53am PST Moving with kids is like juggling whiny chainsaws that need something from you every five seconds. We’re in a land of boxes and […]

“The title for my autobiography will be ‘And Then I Fell Asleep…’” -Avara   Missing this guy terribly and it's only our first night apart😢 A photo posted by Avara Capen (@ithrowtp) on Jul 7, 2014 at 9:32pm PDT You don’t want to miss a moment. Of any of it. But sleep is needed to make the […]
