Ahhhhhhh-some!

Dave Engledow is my kind of Dad.

Look at these adorable pictures he created for his daughter, Alice Bee.  I think his captions are perfect.

He has a bunch more on his Facebook page, they are fantastic, go see them!

Monday Teeny Poll

55% of you did a big fat whole lot of nothing on the 4th of July, while 44% of you were planning on attending some sort of home-based gathering.  Not a single soul was going to see professional fireworks, which if you live in the San Diego area, was probably a good idea.  There are so many people in the area I live, going to see professional fireworks usually means getting stuck in traffic for an hour just trying to get out.  So, none for us.

Today I’m all about the male half of the parenting equation (assuming the father is present in the home, and breast feeding is not an on-going concern.).

To My Husband on the Eve of His 41st Birthday

My Dear,

I know that I don’t really talk about you much on this blog.

Not because I don’t love you, but simply because I’m not good at sharing.

Can you believe that we have known each other now for twenty one years, been married for ten, and raising kids for nine?

You are a Gemini and I am a Pisces, but we were both born in the Year of the Pig, which means that 95% of the time, we pretty much order the exact same thing at restaurants.

You are truly the best father a child could ask for, other than you don’t know anything about computers.  Or writing.

Oh, and the fact that you are a Republican and don’t believe in global warming.  I spend more time with the kids, so I’m pretty sure I’ve got the political viewpoint thing wrapped up, at least until they are much older.

But your strengths definitely outweigh your weaknesses, and I never actually thought I would be the “nice” parent.  Or at the least the “nicer” parent, as I certainly get my fair share of complaining.

However, this may just be with our son, and our daughter just might have you wrapped around her petite finger.  We’ll see if time shows you giving her money and the car keys behind my back.

Let’s just say I won’t be surprised.

So on the first anniversary of your 40th birthday, I just wanted to let you know that your three whole months of labeling me “my older wife” are at an end.

At least for the next nine months or so.

Love,

Your Adoring Wife (who is the same age as you)

 

My Husband is Jealous of David Beckham

Not because Mr. Beckham is a talented soccer player/underwear model.

And also not because he is married to Posh Spice.

He is jealous of David Beckham because mere days after the birth of his daughter, he is surfing.

You see, my husband barely saw the light of day when I was recovering from both of my C-sections.  I think he went out of the house to possibly buy diapers and get me food.

Being rich does indeed have its privileges.

Monday Teeny Poll

Last week I asked how you would feel about vacationing with extended family, and 53% of you categorized it as possibly pleasant.  Which is technically indecisive because only 14% said it would be great.  31% are of the mindset that it would basically be akin to torture, and it’s good to have those that are brutally honest with themselves.

Today I’ve got a question for you that oddly enough, I’ve never asked on this parenting-centric blog.

Cars of the Future

As Ford introduces an inflatable seat belt for children, can a car that simply puts your kid in a bubble be far behind?

Forgive me, dear readers, as I deal with my own skyrocketing body temperature and a vomiting 16 month old.

And, in case you haven’t already seen it, (although you probably have) here is Tom Hanks as Pageant Dad.

Sunday Brunch Buffet

A little beauty for your Sunday morning.

Vaccinate your kids already, will you?

For this study, I have to say, well duh.

More about early onset of puberty in girls, this time dad-related.

My object is method “wood for good” cleaner.  Crap, it had to be something non-toxic, didn’t it?

Bratz dolls! They’re baaa-aaack!

Kermit and Vincent Price.  Classic.

You will not be spared from Yo Gabba Gabba!
