As I was filling up our van with gas tonight, I stood looking into the van at my family and noticed my reflection in the window.  I saw myself looking at my boys with their image superimposed in my reflection – and I was struck at that moment how real and profound it is that… Read more »

Racquetball, and all the work

My 2-year-old (Levi) and I had an “adventure” last night. We went to the Rec Center at WSC to play Racquetball. It was awesome. He swung that racket like his little life depended on it. Obviously I didn’t take him to teach him the rules, nor would anyone have said he would win any tournaments… Read more »

To the parents of the world: rock stars aren’t all that bad

  Do you think Rock Stars’ passion could be a good example to moms and dads everywhere?

searching for daddy

  …the usual morning ritual of pattering feet to Mom and Dad’s bedroom – followed by darting under the covers – followed by more pattering of feet – followed by ‘you lift me up’ [into our bed] – followed by Mom and Dad dodging kicks, elbows, and morning breath……. after a little of all this….

oh the smell.

Yesterday morning prior to heading off to work, Levi (18 months old) and I were able to spend some quality time together. Together we explored as much as the main floor of our house allowed, he climbed things and ran around (and I did with him). Then suddenly there was a smell, and if you… Read more »
