I spent this weekend at the cabin, alone with the 4 boys. Rich had too much work to do at the office, so he stayed home. I don’t like going without him, but I had to take a bunch of our camping gear back up there. Also, I wanted to see if there was any […]
Litter-Bugs, Lifeguards & Severed Heads.
Litter-Bugs Let me preface this by telling you that a few weeks ago I yelled at a teenage girl who was driving like an idiot. I saw her in my rearview mirror, weaving in and out of traffic on Los Alamitos Blvd and coming up fast. She whipped around my car and ended up to […]
His mother’s son…
Setting: The dinner table. We are having fish tacos. All the fixin’s are on the table. Off to the side, there is also a plate of chocolates that Rich brought home from work… We ask Grant to say grace:“God is great, God is gurd, lettus thankem for our food. Aayy-men…. Please pass the chocolates!”

We hurry past them on the way back from the creek. “Oh, poor chipmunks” as we quickly scoot Grant past the […]
I wanted you to use clean clothes!
The directions: Get dressed please. Two great ways to tell if your child fished yesterday’s clothes out of his laundry hamper: Pizza sauce and chocolate on the shoulder of the shirt, from where he wiped his mouth at dinner last night. Shorts are on inside out, and are so dirty you can see the dirt […]
Some people count sheep… some count dogs.
The directions: Get ready for bed. The result:
You shouldn’t neglect your gums.
And you shouldn’t leave dental floss where a 4 year old can find it.Perhaps he was fishing for sharks?
