He’s no slacker Dad

A few posts back, I showed Mike sleeping on the job. To keep things balanced, here’s another glimpse into Mike’s weekend duties. He loves to bike and the kids love to tag along for the ride. They will bike around Arlington, stopping off at various playgrounds. When the babe gets older, I hope to...

Our Big Backyard

We’ve had a lot of gorgeous weather around here and the kids have been taking full advantage. The love to picnic and play in the backyard after preschool. They especially love to dig in Daddy’s garden. It can get a little messy, but that’s half the fun (til it’s time to do the laundry…)...

How does your garden grow?

It is well known who has the green thumb in this house (hint: it ain’t me). Mike enjoys planting his garden each spring and eating the fruits of his labor during the summer. The kids were mildly interested last year and seem to be moreso this year. One Saturday morning in March, they helped...

Babysitting, Daddy-style

Disclaimer: this is NOT how Mike parents. He is incredibly attentive and busy with them. But even Super Dads get worn out and need a break. Isn’t it nice that he could still “watch the kids” while taking a breather? Mike is so good, he can even watch the older kids while taking care...

3 months!

Well, we’ve survived the first three months! But I can’t really call it survival – it’s been much more pleasant than that. Adam is such a sweet, happy-go-lucky baby. I’ve said several times, “If every baby were like him, we’d have an overpopulation problem.” Seriously, he almost makes me want to do it again...

Wendy and her “Stink Eye”

You know that look? In our house, we call it the stink eye. Sometimes, Wendy likes to give us the stink eye. However, she has a hard time pulling it off. It’s really not as effective when you’re smiling. Here’s a few other pics of our Wessie Girl: Just plain Wendy .. with a...

Three is a magic number …

… unless you are trying to take a picture. Then, 3 is a unattainable ideal, unless 3 refers to 3 goofy faces, not 3 smiling faces. See the following examples: While there are elements of goodness in some of the pictures, i.e. ONE smiling face, other shots are just plain goofy. Be sure to...

The sound of silence …

Wednesday April 9, 2008

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of nothing! Today, “nothing” can best be described as: the dog not whining to come inside (he’s always on the wrong side of the door) the baby not crying cuz he’s dirty/hungry/whateva the big sister not jumping off any furniture or dragging any heavy objects across her...
