September 30, 2016: Scary Halloween

To inversely quote Homer Simpson – “I prefer funny Halloween, not scary Halloween!” Seriously, WTF is up with these decorations that I found at Target this afternoon, and what would Cleo think if she found a dog skeleton just laying around the house?! 😯 Maybe it all stems back to an incident that I had trick or treating when I was…

September 28, 2016: Like Grumpy Father, Like Son…

I find it kind of amusing that I think Christopher hates getting up from his naps just about as much as I do. Exhibit A is a good example of this because I should note that while it isn’t uncommon for him to sleep with his blanket over his head instead of the rest of his…

September 27, 2016: Stardate 2:18am-Walmart

It’s almost never a good idea to go shopping this late at night, as evidenced once again by the things you see here in my cart right now. Some items are practical – like the diapers and the first aid stuff – that were in fact the reason why I found myself going to Walmart…

September 25, 2016: Bonding is Weird

It’s weird to think that tonight’s the first night that I’ve seen my newborn sons in a week (on account of being sick). It’s also weird to think that they’re still only 10 days old. I suppose a lot of weird stuff has been happening lately. Just this same evening, I had to tell my…

September 24, 2016: The Milk (Wo)Man

Women kind of got the short end of the stick when it comes to making babies. They’ve got to carry the little suckers around in their bellies for the better part of nine months. Whether it’s the usual way or by slicing a hole in said belly, I’ve heard that either delivery method is pretty painful. And then when…

September 22, 2016: It’s Beginning to Feel a Little Like Christmas…

And I’m not saying this just because Walmart has already managed to start squeezing in a few aisles of Christmas decorations here and there amongst the fall and Halloween decor – don’t think we didn’t notice, Big Blue! Nonetheless, despite all of the zany chaos over the last month or so, I’ve kind of been feeling like my…

September 20, 2016: I Can’t Be Sick Right Now…

And yet here we are – I’ve got a million and one things to do, I’ve got two newborns in the NICU and a recovering wife home to take care of … and suddenly I’m sicker than a dog. W.T.F. Truth be told, Christopher and I have both been sort of harboring this coughing thing for…

September 19, 2016: Pumpkin???

I keep waffling back and forth on whether I want to do the whole pumpkin thing anymore or not. On one hand, it doesn’t take much for me to get burned out on pumpkin anymore, and traditionally when I review pumpkin stuffs I tend to encounter more crappy pumpkin than I do quality. On the…

September 18, 2016: Up in the Sky

Who knew that things happen really early in the morning while I’m still very happily tucked into my bed?! Today I had to drive my mother-in-law to the airport … at 5:30 in the morning … and though the early departure itself was certainly less than ideal, it was kind of neat to come home to find a veritable…

September 17, 2016: Trapped in the Hospital

So last night was an interesting night! As one would expect, we’ve pretty much spent every waking moment at the hospital over the last couple of days with the arrival of the twins and all, and for the most part that’s honestly been pretty manageable. Between Sara’s post-delivery room now and even the labor/delivery room that she…
