“This is yogurt. You should see his joy when it’s .” -Avara   My wife sent me images as this mess progressed. It started easily and sort of timid. Then it progressed into a full-blown fist fight with a spoon and a cup of yogurt. You could almost imagine someone insulted his mother and my little […]

“I’m outnumbered.” -Avara   I think my wife wakes up some days to the stark realization that she is surrounded by dudes at home. This situation lives in contrast to the sentiment of thinking we were having a girl the first and second go-arounds. I don’t think she envisioned a symphony of farts and stunts in […]

“Hey Summer Break, I NEED A BREAK!” -Avara   Having kids is like being on an emotional seesaw with poop smells and feelings. You want to spend as much time as you can with them, but too much time together with anything or anyone can be a bit much. There are so many things to get […]

“Stop. Drop. AND CUDDLE. If you give Arden anything soft he will immediately stop what he’s doing and put it to the side of his face and snuggle. He’s currently cuddling his stuffed Harry Potter owl❤️ We’ve taught him well @charliecapen” -Avara   When you have a second child, chances are good that both the parents […]

“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, […]

“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 […]

“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 […]

“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 […]

“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 […]
