Who is that looking back at me?

The little guy was getting a bath the other night when my wife asked me to run into his room and fetch a pair of pajamas for him. Up to his room I went and into the dresser to find something comfy enough for the night, but not so heavy that he’d be overheated. We’veContinue reading “Who is that looking back at me?”

Potty mouth – Improv singing/rhyming gets dangerous

File this one under ‘a close one.’ Improvisational rhyming in the house takes on a whole new level of caution once you become a parent. Take, for instance, this ditty my wife and I were singing while our son sat on his little potty and ‘gave it a go’ recently… ME: “We’re sittin’ on theContinue reading “Potty mouth – Improv singing/rhyming gets dangerous”

Elementary, dear Muppets – Time to bring Sherlock Hemlock out of retirement!

While at first, he just wanted to carry it around the house and use it as a convenient chair when he wanted toContinue reading “Houston, we have potty”

The World According to Mister Rogers

All endings are new beginnings – just one quote among many that I’ve been finding very inspirational as of late. My son recently pulled a book off of our bookshelf and handed it to me. Whether he thought it was one of his enjoyable adventures through Elephant and Piggie’s world or another attempt by cowsContinue reading “The World According to Mister Rogers”

Blasts from the past

I’ve gone on and on previously as to why my comic book reading is few and far between these days, likely taking me the full gamut from childhood comic fan to young adult comic aficionado to now being that parent who will one day tell my son that those funnybooks were ‘better in my day!’Continue reading “Blasts from the past”
