The reasons range from “it’s a long story” to “it’s too embarrassing” to “it would be unfair to point out the utter stupidity of someone who can’t defend themselves.” Garrett has been through 3 daycares in 6 months and I… Continue reading →

Maybe Garrett was happy to see GWE leave for a few days. Or, maybe it was the realization that Justin wasn’t in the house to defend his room at that moment.

As Garrett sat in the bathtub, he kept yelling, “Daddy! I want my pirate seat! I want my PIRATE SEAT!!!” “Huh???” I replied, quizzically. “What are you saying, Garrett?” “I WANT MY PIRATE SEAT!!!” he screamed again.
