Cuteness: Three Year Old Division

Actual conversations between the Mouse and I, over the course of the prior 3 days: Mouse: “Daddy, do Kings pick apples?” Me: I dunno, honey, I guess they could if they wanted apples straight from an orchard. Why? Mouse: “Because if a King picked apples, that would be random.” …then, […]

Lawn Mower + Box Cutter + Glitter

= hours upon hours of imagination-expanding f…f…FUN! Months back I scoffed at the idea of spending $100+ on a stupid cardboard box. In that piece I advocated spending a little extra to get a new refrigerator, which always comes with a complimentary, sturdy box. I totally forgot that a lawn […]

I Have Three Wives

The Bear is really into getting married. Her beau? That’d be me. The ceremonies (that’s plural as we renew our vows most every night) are brief affairs without the fanfare of most modern weddings. She will be dressed in a leotard, tutu, tiara, feather boa, plastic dress up shoes, and […]

It's my sailboat and I'll cry if I want to

The Bear turns 4 (holy crap!) this coming Sunday. We wanted so badly to have her party at World Cafe Live on 3/16 for the Justin Roberts show but it would wind up costing close to $600 which is flat-out insane. Then we looked for something else original and fun […]
