2 years later… Poetry (addendum):

…and then there was Him,

who (thank God) would turn out to be the fourth and final hymn.

His big lesson would teach me that sleep is a total façade;

showing us that what we knew of parenting was utterly flawed.

But this one is special; he is a daddy’s boy,

He gives his mom Hell, and, most of the time, greets me with joy.

He is a cute little boy, who has a bright smile that can light up a room,

Damn I feel bad for Heather, she is totally doomed.

Because a lot of little girls will be in line just outside the door,

because he is just like his daddy, a legend with the women, in lore.

Father of the year moment #164: Too smart for her own good.

Talking to the girls about our trip this summer:

Heather: You know what? We are going to go in an airplane!

Afro1: Whoa!

Afro2: Can I give the ticket to the conductor?

Heather: The pilot.

Me: The stewardess.

A2: The conductor!

Me: The stewardess.

A2: Conductors can be anywhere!

D&H: What?

A2: A band! They can be on a train, and in a band…

D: Band?

A2: Yeah!

H: Symphony.

D: Oh.

Drink Please!

“Check that off of the Bucket List” or “Never Again”

I remember when Heather and I stood 8 streets away from Time Square @ 9:30 pm waiting for the ball to drop in NYC.

Don’t get it twisted people – a lot of the people you see on New Years Rockin’ Eve stay in a $3,000 a night hotel in Time Square, no one else can get in. The rest of the people you don’t see are piiiiissed that they got more than they bargained for – no personal space (What the Hell is that poking me in the back? God I hope it is a camera).

Happy New Years!!!

Setting Family Traditions

My wife, Heather, is all about traditions (she can remember events that happened in her younger life according to what tradition that event centered around). Of course she would want to do the same for her children. Enter:

The Family Favorite Things Supper

Now, she will be the first to admit that she totally stole the idea from one of her college buddies. But, boy did she take off with it.

So, what is it?

During the holiday season, every single member of our family is allowed to choose their favorite dish that was prepared at some point during the year. Heather prepares the dish and places the finished product on the dinner table – family style. Before totally devouring our own choice meal (why wouldn’t we), we must first fill our plates with a small sampling of each dish.

2015 cuisine:

Dish 1: Spaghetti & Meatballs

Dish 2: Mac & Cheese

Dish 3: Chocolate Revel Bars

Dish 4: Chicken, Cranberry & Rice Hotdish

Dish 5: Wine
