Used ultrasound to find out the sex of #1, do we use it for #2?

Used ultrasound to find out the sex of #1, do we use it for #2?
The wife is pregnant with kid number 2.  I never want to bury the lead. This is not really breaking news to most around us as we made the annoucement at Vlad’ first birthday party in May.  In this time of instant news and information spreading like a VD in Bangkok this is tantamount to...

To dog or not to dog?

To dog or not to dog?
With apologies to my most favorite and beautiful sister-in-law I have to share a conversation and pose a question. I’m a dog guy.  I’ve had dogs while growing up and into college.  I somehow stopped being a dog guy once I met the wife.  Like so many other parts of myself that were once absolute,... Read more »

Be the king of Valentine's Day

Be the king of Valentine's Day
Every year in the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day there is a flood of advertising aimed at men.  Obviously the idea is to hock  chocolates, roses, teddy bears, pajamas, lingerie and piles of other wares.  Most of the adverts depict a clueless man that doesn’t know what his lady wants and must be saved...

This was a no brainer.

Kids are a great excuse to get out of stuff; My top 8

Kids are a great excuse to get out of stuff; My top 8
Yes, yes and yes.  I am doing it again, shocking the world by offering not 5, not 10, but a top 8 list! It’s not right they all holler!  It’s an outrage, an abomination! Taking the status quo by the hand, down the hall, into the room and face first into the toilet bowl for... Read more »

Do not ever laugh at a naked woman

Do not ever laugh at a naked woman
Teachable moments are all around me now.  With every situation, circumstance and happenstance there is something that I can teach my infant son, Vlad, the Impaler. I’m work shopping the nickname right now, what do you think?  To early for world dominance? There was a teachable moment a few weeks ago when I smarted off... Read more »

Finished not, Doula battled on

Finished not, Doula battled on
Sitting, sulking and plotting was Doula.  Angered and humiliated by the lone Warrior and his favor amongst the Gods she languished in her black realm called Mundelein.  A place be this, so dark, that sun dare not pierce it’s cloak of sorrow and despair. Never a more dreadful place could man lay his gaze, and Doula...

Scene from a basement; dialogue

Last night the wife and I were riding out the snow storm in the basement.  The night was boring, frankly, to the point that she began humming while chilling in the recliner, cat in lap.  Both of us staring at the TV not saying much waiting until bed time. I will be looking back on moments...

Saint Valentine's Day Massacre

Saint Valentine's Day Massacre
Saint Valnetine’s Day Massacre might be a touch strong but the point will be made.  Valentine’s Day to me has never really been more than an inconvenience.  Valentine’s Day in my younger years meant taking little paper valentines for all my friends in grammar school and stuffing their shoe box taped to their desks.  Teenage...

    Elevating the fatherhood game is what I am doing, daily. Whining, complaining and cursing about kids you will not find here. Parenting is a refined art that so few do to a high level and I have set the bar high. High class, high society, high brow, all the time.
