May 15, 2017: Musings About Healthcare Reform…

Don’t get me wrong – I completely understand that healthcare is expensive. Quality, specialized care in particular, and I say that as the father of three kids who collectively spent 141 days in the NICU because they were born prematurely. Those months represent some of the most nerve-racking times that I’ve ever experienced, and yet thanks to…

November 24, 2016: Thankful for Closure

I’m writing a couple of other posts about thankfulness and whatnot that I’ll be posting later over on my blog and my editorial site, but for today’s Thing-a-Day I thought I’d share this wonderful picture that I took this evening of the twins sleeping peacefully together – at home – and elaborate just a bit on what a tremendous relief it’s been…

November 23, 2016: Taste-Testing That Oreo Candy Bar Thing…

We saw it on Facebook a few weeks ago, and tonight I was surprised to find it on the shelves in the candy aisle of our local Walmart, so a family consensus was quickly reached that we all knew we were going to have to try it! …Christopher included, who took it upon himself to guard that…

November 22, 2016: Synchronicity

We’ve had both of the twins home together for barely 24 hours at this point, but if there’s one thing that I’ve learned already, it’s that we’re going to have to find a way to sync these swings so that they move together or it’s going to drive my OCD absolutely bonkers! 😛 It doesn’t help…

November 21, 2016: Happy Homecoming

I can’t believe we got the whole family to fit!!! It probably wasn’t the best approach to not bother trying to fit all three car seats into our SUV until we were literally ready to go pick Matthew up from the hospital, but you can see here that despite the snug packing job with Christopher now…

November 17, 2016: Nothing is Quick Anymore

I think this is going to be one part of having an even larger family that’s going to take some real getting used to because with time right now being my most valuable commodity, it’s painful to see things that used to be quick, little trips now taking up the better part of an afternoon or evening… Tonight I…

October 14, 2016: Doing Nothing With Matthew…

I can’t remember the last time I sat and did nothing for two hours straight, but that’s exactly what I did today… …and I got to hold my other newborn son for the first time during it, so that was pretty cool, too! 😉 Today was kind of our postponed anniversary, with the intent of Christopher spending…

October 3, 2016: All Together Now

It’s really easy to divide and conquer when you’ve got tons and tons of things on your family’s collective to-do list, however I’m starting to wonder if maybe that’s not necessarily always the best approach… The last couple of weeks have been a little trying because although Sara’s been out of the hospital, her c-section scar is…

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 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 15, 2016: My Two More Sons

So today our family grew, and then grew again some more! I haven’t really written much about it since Sara went into the hospital blorgteen weeks ago – life has been a little, *ahem*, hectic since I’ve been juggling work and kid duty and nightly commutes to visit the wife in her temporary home at the hospital. Well, things…
