Hey, God Punished You

Hey, God Punished You

Growing up I learned from my parents being an older sibling means you’ve got to slow down, be a leader and good example for your younger sibling. If you aren’t going to be good to your younger siblings, you are going to pay for it when they outgrow you or Karma is going to pay a visit. As a parent I try to teach my kids the same things. My son is expected to be a model example and “useful engine” around the house (we are still into Thomas references).

Unfortunately, things don’t always go to plan. Sometimes one of the kids is unagreeable. Other times the kids have no idea what they are supposed to do. On rare occasions, the Karma gods reap their vengeance.

Reflections of Fatherhood by Seth Golder

Doing Riley’s bedtime is one of the best times I get to spend with her.

And to be completely honest, that last hour is usually a marathon of walking around with her, bouncing her and watching Word Party on Netflix to keep her up to an hour that will let her sleep through the night.

Playing Tricks on an 18 Month Never Gets Old

Months back when Uncle Josh was visiting, the two of us decided to play a trick on MJ. At the time, she was about 18 months old and Uncle Josh and I reverted back to our childhood for a few minutes.

Uncle Josh and I look quite similar.When we want to look a like, we can look pretty similar, or at least I like to think I look like J-Smooth. The kids say we look the same. After all Uncle Josh is live and in person a handful of times each year. They see him often in the computer and that be confusing when Uncle Josh shows up with cupcakes.

Dad to the Rescue

Dad to the Rescue

My dad has always been there for me. He’s rescued me from the most perilous circumstances. It’s not hard to think back to times and stories he saved my hide. In fact, from the day I was born he’s weathered storms to come to my rescue. On my first day in the world, my dad walked through a blizzard to see me in the hospital. Later, he drove through blizzards to see me play basketball in college. Most recently he saved my house with the snow on my deck. How did my dad save the day? Saving my house started with celebrating My Precious’s 2nd birthday. Cue the mystery music.
