Let it Pee

I’m pretty sure this doesn’t count, but yesterday Ian peed on the potty. The Squad were just getting out of their bath, and Claudia was still brushing her teeth and Ian peed right on one of the potties. I’m sure he didn’t mean to, but it seems like a step in the right direction.

I told you guys she loves Bob.

Now she calls him “Bob Builder”. I was not exaggerating Claudia’s feelings for Bob. On a completely unrelated note, a friend that I have been trying to get back in touch with for about seven years now found me on Myspace. I hate Myspace, it makes me feel old and uncool, but I have found […]

Okay, Nobody Get Mad

Can somebody please explain to me what is so great about “American Idol”. I just don’t get it. I know a bazillion people watch it. If you are one of them, can you please tell me why?

Not How We Normally Put Pacifiers In Our Mouths

25 minute nap, you say?

Does this look like a well rested boy to you? Me neither. (Thanks to the power of my cell phone, iBook and Bluetooth he has already fallen back to sleep in my lap. I love technology.) (This picture makes it look like splotchy runs in our family.)

They just don’t know how lucky they are.

My brother used to get pissed off when my Mom and I sang in the car. He would get particularly angry if we harmonized. I think he hated it that I was in a madrigal group in college. He accused us all of “wearing too much make-up”. I don’t think he bought my explanation of […]

Something New Every Day

At this age they learn so fast. My kids say things that I didn’t know they could say every single day. For example, this morning Claudia said “Where going, Ian?”. Despite the grammatical issues, that is a complete sentence and she actually meant what she said. I was very proud. On the other hand, Ian […]

It’s Alarming How Charming I Feel

Check me out. So what do you guys think? The Kaiser designed my logo and I think he’s dreamy. If you met him, you’d think so too. VonMotorheads rule! (Okay, he may have told me to say that, bit it is still true). And Karen at Troll Baby Graphics designed everything else. She is the […]

Pay No Attention to That Man Behind the Curtain

If you see crazy things in my sidebar today do not be alarmed. We are ramping up for the new look. Stay tuned.

Holy Crap

Did anyone else just see George Mason beat UConn? Or was that just a dream?

So Long, Frank Lloyd Sousa

Gabe and I had a disagreement the other day. We were at a basketball game and we were sitting behind the band. I said “Hey Gabe – look. It’s a euphornium.” This is the way Gabe pronounces euphonium. A euphonium is one of these. Gabe said “No, that’s a sousaphone“. Named after Frank Lloyd Sousa. […]

We’re not holding our breath or anything…

But, GO MASON! The Goon Squad’s Aunt K.C. and Joe go to George Mason and got the kids these shirts last week. Gabe and I got to be there for the Wichita State ass-whipping. Then we saw that crazy UConn/Washington game. I thought the Washington fans were going to try to kill the refs at […]
