Keeping Evil At Bay

Keeping Evil At Bay

It’s been a really rough few weeks, and I’m sorry I haven’t posted. We went on vacation to see my wife’s family for a couple weeks, and while we were away, the Lord blessed us by finally closing escrow our our new home. So you know that feeling when you get home from vacation thatContinue Reading

A Night Without Kids

A Night Without Kids

My youngest daughter’s best friend had a birthday party last night, and being the prepubecent bundle of hormones that they are, they decided the best thing to do would be have a sleepover. So both my daughters were gone all night. We were alone. Party Time! Bust out the drinks and the dancing, it’s timeContinue Reading

Satan Shaved His Beard

Satan Shaved His Beard

Of course he did. That’s what evil does. It takes the goodness that God has created, and twists and perverts it. Okay, now this theory might just be my silliness going crazy, but then, I might just be right. So take this with a grain of salt, or maybe a jar of salt, take itContinue Reading

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day

The single most important day of the year. Let me rephrase, the single day you must never forget. Seriously. If you forgot, right this second, get off the computer or phone or whatever, go out in the yard and pick the prettiest flower you can find. (The neighbor’s will do in a pinch) Take itContinue Reading

Puberty

So my daughter had her birthday today. Let me tell you, nothing makes you feel your age like the age of you children. So I can feel as youthful as I please, but the sad truth is, my youngest daughter is eleven. Sheesh. With eleven come The Changes. Yes, they have already started of course,Continue Reading

Staycation!

I love my kids, don’t get me wrong. I love them bunches. I feel like something is truly missing from my life if they are not in tow at every moment. They went to Grandma’s house for a week. Now I admit, I had heart pangs. I was sad to drop them off, and knewContinue Reading

Frisbee Golf

Last year, I decided that the girls needed a sport. Now i should warn you, that I’m way too overprotective. I wouldn’t let my kids do gymnastics because I was worried about their knees. I don’t let them walk around the block unless they have my Great Dane in tow. I have to personally interviewContinue Reading

Homework

Argh. My kids drive me crazy. Every day, I assign them work to do on their own, an opportunity for them to learn some responsibility, some diligence, and a chance for me to get some of my work done without standing over them, actively teaching them. Guess what? My kids aren’t all that great atContinue Reading

iPods Have Destroyed My Home

I don’t care if they are listening to Danielle Rose or Andrea Bocelli. If I’m calling my daughters, and they don’t answer, I’m not happy. When I was a kid, I was no better of course. I would hide in my room with my little radio listening to my music as loud as it wouldContinue Reading

Altar Girls

I’m not going to lie. At first I had real trouble with this. It is my great desire to remain faithful to the Church in every way I can, and I knew the subject of altar girls was a hot topic, but to be honest I wasn’t sure why. At first, I had the sameContinue Reading
