What do Toddlers Dream About

September 14th, 2011

Apparently, “Dinosaur Train” and chicken nuggets. Luke requires two things at night: for one of us to lie in bed with him until he falls asleep to sleep in our bed after he wakes up and finds that we’re no longer in his bed. Last night was no different in regards to his needs.  The [...]

Luke’s “Big Boy” Room

August 22nd, 2011

For a couple of months, we had a lot of trouble getting Luke to go to bed.  He just didn’t want to be in his crib.  There was very little that we could do to convince him that lying down and going to sleep was the right thing to do.  Instead, he felt that crying and screaming [...]

Stomach Flu

March 26th, 2011

This news is a few weeks old, but the misery is still pretty fresh in my mind… A few weeks ago, I stayed home from work because I was feeling a little under the weather. Nothing serious mind you, just not good. Near the end of the day, I got a voice mail from the [...]

Single Dad – Day 4

October 24th, 2010

This could be subtitled “success!” or simply “last day”. It was another pretty easy day for me.  I did go out to eat for dinner though.  I took Fred and Regina with us.  It was nice to have a little adult company, and to have somebody else cook and clean up for me. The boy [...]

Single Dad – Day 3

October 21st, 2010

And so continues my “Single Dad” posts… Last night was much less boring than the previous nights.  While I was making dinner, Luke was getting into absolutely everything!  He just seemed to have a lot of energy. After a brief dinner, probably caused by his grandmother feeding him dinner also (which pisses me off incredibly), [...]

Single Dad – Day 2

October 20th, 2010

This morning ended Day 2 of single dad! It was pretty much the same as the day before: easy evening, bottle, in bed at 8:00, up at 6:15.  After he woke up, we sat on the couch together, him on my lap, and we watched the morning news. I have discovered over the past couple [...]

Single Dad – Day 1

October 19th, 2010

Yesterday is the first time since Luke’s been born that I’ve been 100% responsible for him.  I was responsible for feeding him, getting him ready for bed, putting him to bed, and getting him ready this morning.  Sounds terrifying doesn’t it?  Not for me, but for him! I have to say, it wasn’t bad.  At [...]

Babies are…interesting

October 17th, 2010

It’s been a couple of months since I last posted anything.  Not for a lack of want, I assure you. Two weeks after Luke’s birthday, he started walking.  I don’t mean he was mostly crawling and wanted to walk a little bit.  He did that for a couple of days.  I mean, he took off [...]

Happy birthday, Luke!

August 17th, 2010

Happy birthday TO you!  Happy BIRTHday TO YOOOOOOUUUU!  Happy BIRTHDAY dear Lucas!  Happy birthday to YOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUU!!! That’s right!  Today is Luke’s first birthday.  It’s also his grandma’s birthday.  Obviously it’s not her first *snicker snicker* Exactly one year ago, I was exhausted, hungry, and scared for my freedom.  Rightfully so too: have you ever had [...]

Not to be confused with this guy. That’s right, at the ripe age of almost 9 months, Luke got two more teeth! He has a total of four teeth, and he’s not even over 30 yet! That’s much better than them city-folk that have all 23 of theirs when they get older. I encourage you [...]
