Mr. Mom Is On The Case

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

By the time you read this, I will already be taken hostage by these two children. I have a rare weekend off, and since I spent last weekend up north on business, the missus is now taking a trip. She is is driving to her friend’s house in Maryland with Kyle and Erik for two [...]

Sleeping Beauty

Sunday, August 22nd, 2010

So, we’re spending our last night (Friday) down the shore and we decided to go out to eat before the drive home. We walked to Valarie’s Place – terrific food, by the way – and settled down for a good meal. The missus ordered chicken fingers and fries for Kevin and Julia; simple foods that [...]

A Big Week At The Earp Ranch

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

Sorry my commenting and posting has been lacking as of late, but it’s been a busy week around these parts. Here’s the rundown. First, we have been having trouble with our Chinese Walnut tree in the backyard. It’s pictured with Kyle at the left. The tree was planted by the original owner of the house [...]

Pool’s Out For Summer

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

As luck would have it, my in-laws’ friends have an in-ground pool. I grew up with a pool in the backyard, but the new house doesn’t lend itself to such creature comforts – what with the electric and phone lines strewn over the yard. So, when we were invited over for a swim the other [...]

Adventures In Babysitting

Friday, June 4th, 2010

The missus was enjoying at day in the dentist’s chair last week, so I had the babies all to my lonesome. What better excuse to break out the camera? While the boy was uncharacteristically camera shy, the princess was more than happy to strike a pose. This one was by far the best of the [...]

The Luck O’ The Irish

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

In this story, it benefits the cops and not the crooks. Read on: Two suspects shot dead in a St. Patrick’s Day bank robbery in Gallatin remained unidentified as of Wednesday evening. The two white male suspects, one of whom was dressed as a leprechaun, led a chase from the bank, disabled a patrol car [...]

The Safety Dance

Saturday, February 20th, 2010

Done, in this case, by Baby Without Hats. I caught Julia dancing during an episode of Wow Wow Wubbzy, and managed to film the entire thing without laughing. The best part, in my opinion, is the look she gives me afterward. Enjoy! Oh yeah, she’s a dancing machine.

Walking On Sunshine

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Remember when Julia started crawling two months ago? I wrote “It’s Over,” thinking it couldn’t get any worse . . . Great. First comes the walking, then comes the dating, then comes the gray hair. God help me.

It’s Been A Tough Couple Of Days

Saturday, January 9th, 2010

Well to be more specific, it’s been an absolutely terrible couple of days. I would by lying if I said I’m done grieving for Right Wing Prof – I’m not – or if I felt like my old self again – I don’t – but I do appreciate everyone’s patience during this difficult week. It’s [...]

Well, We Survived

Friday, December 25th, 2009

And I am now comfortably blogging from my laptop computer while wearing the fabulous slippers on the left, compliments of my brother-in-law and his family. Here are the highlights of the day: 1:00am – Julia woke up and wouldn’t go back to sleep. So, the missus brought her upstairs to sleep with us. That was [...]
