After hearing Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night” on the very short drive to drop off Ava at school this morning, I was totally incensed and all fired up to write a blog post about how, back in my day, songs weren’t such steaming pieces of shit. And if you haven’t heard Katy Perry’s “Last Friday […]

He’s a funny little guy. Why would a crocodile bite an iPod, anyway? Silly.

I was editing this image last night when L looked over and said, “He looks like he’s in a musical.” I LOLed. That gal is funny sometimes. I do love her so. Oh, and this guy, too:

Our friend Ken was nice enough to invite the kids out to see his beehives last evening. It was just about as perfect a day as you could imagine out at the orchard where Ken has his setup. The bees, as you might guess, were busy flying in and out of the hives, oblivious to […]

Ava was doing watercolor paintings for her mom and other folks the other day, and she whipped up this quickie of a pear for me at the last minute. I think it’s one of the most awesome things I’ve ever seen, and not just because she’s my daughter. Really!

No, your RSS reader isn’t messing with you. This is a new post! I wanted to put up what turns out to be the closest I could get to a shot of Ava and Emmett together in their tooth-themed Halloween costumes:

I was changing Emmett’s diaper two days ago when I looked down to see him smiling at me and sticking the tip of his tongue out of his mouth. “That’s a really funny, cute thing to do,” I thought to myself. Then I went right back to changing him.

Below is a video of Ava watching a video of Ava watching video of Ava. And she’s watching that video on a 19.5″ LCD TV I had lying around. I took two wire hangers and, after elongating them and trimming off the hooks, covered them with duct tape and slipped one over each end of […]

He got Leah’s good looks, but by God, he got my smarts! Emmett likes to wear a trash can on his head and stumble around the house blind. (Cameo by the lovely AGP, too; what’s not to love?) Please enjoy this video responsibly.

I was home with Emmett the other day when he decided to scale one of the dining room chairs and proceed on up to the tabletop. We may have mentioned that ECP is much more of an explorer than Ava ever was. It’s exhausting to try to keep up with him, but it’s also wonderful […]

What a time we had. Emmett’s present to us yesterday was a nice, long nap that ended 25 minutes before his party started. We sang and ate and opened presents and tried to stay cool; in the end, a good time was had by all. I managed to snap a couple photos of the boy […]

Sometime today, Ava has a recital with her music teacher at school. The kids can choose to do pretty much anything they want, it sounds like, so long as it involves music. Ava, bless her sweet little heart, has decided to do an interpretive dance to Missing Persons’ “Walking In L.A.” Really. And judging by […]

There has been a request to post this video here so it’s viewable by a wider audience. Let it never be said I’m not responsive to my public.

Let’s face it: The kid owes me something for my having stayed home with him all this week while he gets over his feverish coughing sickness.

Listen, we’re friends, OK? And if you like the Charmin ads featuring the adorable bears running around, picking clingy pieces of TP off each others’ asses, that’s fine. Just don’t tell me about it. I don’t want to know. I don’t want that information to color our relationship. Let’s just agree to disagree at the […]

If you haven't seen District 9 (I liked it better than The Hurt Locker), you're missing out on one of the best acting performances of the last couple years. The lead, Sharlto Copley, provides an incredibly plausible and forceful portrayal of a man turning into an insectoid alien. If there's an emotion he doesn't convey […]
