My Wife Just Said… #271

Posted by on June 27th, 2016, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

I can’t really contradict her. Not when I have days where my zipper was down more than it was up. And, it’s true, there’s also my lovely fart-singing voice. We live in a world where adulthood isn’t the pressed slacks and wingtip shoes it used to be. For a lot of us, now it’s a […]

Kids can have some gloriously oddball thoughts. And even when they’re the completely normal variety, the way they put those thoughts into words can be pretty flippin’ amusing. Art director and father, Martin Bruckner (Spaghetti Toes) designs pop art out of the sweet or quirky quotes from his cutie pie, Harper, and other little kids. […]

Finn: “Will I ever die?” Me: “What do you think, bug?” Finn: “I never die. We start over, growing again from our skulls.” Me: “Does that mean I could be your son? And will you take care of me when I’m old?” Finn: “Yep. I’ll give you lots of kisses.” -Dad & Finn (2014, 4.75 […]

My Kid Just Said… #52

Posted by on July 30th, 2014, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

Certain relatives, who shall remain nameless, reminded me shortly before my second son was born how much my brother and I fought as kids. While I wasn’t anticipating this with my little ones, I was wary somewhere inside. I remember feeling like there wasn’t as much attention available for me. But I wanted these two […]

Daddy Vader Says… Rank Side of the Force

Posted by on July 25th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Sometimes your baby or child does things that impress you beyond the normal “wow, he squeezed my finger” or “holy crap, she ate the whole thing!” Stuff that’s extraordinary. These achievements can even get you thinking they’re prodigies at something, or what they’ve done is somehow foreshadowing of some specific future for them, some destiny. […]

“You know what I would do if I had The Force? Tickle YOU for once.” -Finn (2014, 4.5 years old)  We started watching Episode IV: A New Hope of Star Wars awesomeness. Finn is in. All the way. He did way better than I even anticipated. After we finished our first round, he said this […]

“We should rename Arden. His new name should be Squeaky Cheeks.” -Finn (2014, 4.5 years old)  Coming up with Arden’s name was pretty difficult. I think choosing boys’ names is actually harder than choosing a girl’s for some reason. Not sure why exactly, but there’s so much history with a boy’s name for me. I […]

“When I’m a grandpa and you’re a baby again, I’m going to give you lots of toys.” -Finn (2014, 4.5 years old)   My son’s concept of time is… interesting. “Yesterday” could mean two years ago or two minutes ago as far as he’s concerned. It would give Einstein a heart attack and make Carl […]

“”Why does she sound like Darth Vader?” -Finn (2014, 4.5 years old)   Children oversimplify things. It’s just what they roll. My son was out with my wife while she ran some errands. A lady came up to them and asked them a question. She must’ve had some previous esophageal cancer or larynx ailment because […]

“I was dreaming of crushing.” -Finn (2013, 4 years old)   Earthquake damage in our house. The earthquake had just hit on Monday morning and I was on the other side of our house. I ran to my son’s room in about two strides. He was fine, and Avara made it to the room too. […]
