More daycare quotes!

A common theme in my blogging is my appreciation of the amazingly cute and wonderful things that come out of my ex-wife’s daycare classroom. If you’re living like a child it’s hard to not be optimistic – unless Luke snatches the toy you were playing with…so here’s some direct quotes heard by me this yearContinue reading “More daycare quotes!”

America’s Dad

When I found out that Heathcliff Huxtable was a rapist I didn’t know what was what anymore. Down was up, right was left,… I thought anything was possible. I thought maybe I really didn’t know anyone! I let this guy into my house as a kid and watched his antics and thought how much funContinue reading “America’s Dad”

Forgotten granddaughters

Today I need to get back in touch with my granddaughters. I’m embarrassed to say I’ve forgotten some of their names. But in my defense, there are over 20 names to remember – maybe even 30 at this point. I’m speaking (of course) about my 11-year-old daughter’s Cabbage Patch Cuties. At one point I knewContinue reading “Forgotten granddaughters”

Worst Father’s Day Ever!

This year was my 20th father’s day(if you count when my wife was pregnant with our first), but it was also my worst! All day father’s day I knew that my wife had an appointment the very next day with a divorce lawyer, and that my marriage of almost 20 years was about to end.Continue reading “Worst Father’s Day Ever!”

Childhood bedroom

I’ve worked 2 days recently clearing the clutter out of my childhood bedroom, and I can now proudly declare that there is room on either side of the bed and at the foot of the bed to actually walk! The room seems ginormous now and my mother is getting excited about possibly using the extraContinue reading “Childhood bedroom”

Stuff units

I tried to walk into my middle and youngest daughter’s room recently, and there was no place for me to put my feet. I couldn’t take one step into the room, because there were toys and clothes and papers and stuff everywhere. Now, I know this is not an isolated event. I know kids andContinue reading “Stuff units”

The F-bomb sermon

Most times I try not to swear. There are better ways of expressing your feelings and swearing just adds to your angry mood. I try to reserve my swears for times where I hit my thumb with a hammer or someone swerves into my lane when I’m driving or something similar like that. I tryContinue reading “The F-bomb sermon”

Return of the Covid Cutie

As I have talked about from time to time, my wife runs a home daycare, and unfortunately, part of the job is having to let little ones grow up and leave the daycare. They can’t stay four forever. But last year we lost one of our favorites due to Covid-19. Her parents wanted to beContinue reading “Return of the Covid Cutie”

Happy Palm Sunday!

Happy Palm Sunday everyone! This is one of my favorite days of the year. It’s almost always sunny and very Spring like. Even today, we just had a massive thunderstorm go through in the night, but now it’s a happy sun in the sky. With all the puddles from the storms, it fits perfectly withContinue reading “Happy Palm Sunday!”

Treating Covid blues with kids

On occasion, meaning at least a few times a day, it is difficult to concentrate in my home, and that’s because my wife has a home daycare. The daycare has been a great blessing, but there are also times where the screaming is so loud I can’t hear myself think, and there are times whenContinue reading “Treating Covid blues with kids”
