Yes – we’re under construction! Smart people are updating, upgrading, and uplifting this site as we speak…or type…or whatever. I’m still writing about GenXDaddy things, but the new posts won’t be ready until the new site is up and running! Be back shortly!

While GWE and I have a lot of things in common, going to theme parks and riding roller coasters is not one of them. She loves it. I do not. The thought of standing in line under the hot sun with a thousand screaming children (who aren’t mine) and then getting on a steel death-trap (which may or may not have been maintained properly) is not my idea of “fun.” I don’t know if I’m more scared of the high school drop-out stoner who is responsible for stopping and starting the ride, the locking mechanism on the safety bar that never seems to click properly, or the visual of seeing rides “stuck” in the middle of the track. Everyone I talk to has a “One time I was on (insert ride name here) and we got stuck upside down for 4 hours….” story. Not me!

This is Garrett and his car, Lightning McQueen. Together, they like to drive to the grocery story. And by “Grocery Store,” I mean the fruit trees in the back of our yard. Garrett felt as though we were running short of grapefruits, so he decided to pick some up. Enjoy!… Continue reading →

Justin was sitting next to me while I was texting with my sister. While I cannot remember what the context of the conversation was, I do remember ending the conversation with “Where else can you bury a dead stripper?”
It’s safe to say that the conversation was innocent. If I really needed advice on where… Continue reading →

During a routine check-up, Garrett’s pediatrician suggested that we get his eyes more closely examined by an ophthalmologist. Garrett had no problem reading the eye chart with his right eye, but gave up when asked to do it again with his left eye. The doctor wasn’t sure if he was just being fussy or if… Continue reading →

Duck, Duck, DEUCE!
In my quest to locate turn-of-the-century, Railroad Grade pocket watches (my expensive hobby), I’ve begun dragging my family to flea markets. The first time we attended a flea market, we were nearly killed by gusting winds blowing items off tables and collapsing canopies. The kids were bored, hungry, and afraid of being… Continue reading →

While sitting on the sofa one evening, GWE was minding her own business while watching television. Garrett entered the room and decided that he wanted to sit next to mommy. GWE was pleased that he wanted to be close to her, so she helped him onto the sofa. After a few moments of getting comfortable,… Continue reading →

Last night, GWE was sporting a new pair of leopard print pajama pants. She asked me if I liked them and I responded that I did. She replied, “Good…because your son picked them out.”
GWE went on to explain that while she was deciding between leopard-print pajama pants and polka doted ones, she asked Justin… Continue reading →

Ever since Justin began watching television, one of his favorite shows has been “America’s Funniest Home Videos” on ABC. Justin laughs hysterically at each show and likes to narrate each episode for us at home (like Tom Bergeron.) He even talks about trying to create a video that he can send into the show. All… Continue reading →
