Family Vacation Round 1

I’ve really been slacking off on the whole blogging thing. You see, we went on vacation a few weeks back and I think I am still trying to catch up and recover from it. When my oldest was a baby, we tried to fly out to San Diego to stay with my relatives that had […]

Review: Bugaboo Bee

Name: Bee Manufacturer: Bugaboo MSRP: $529 Now that I’ve gotten over the initial giddy feeling of this purchase, I am at a point where I can legitimately tell you about it. The Bee is the newest member of the Bugaboo family of products. It’s aimed at parents that live in the city and have reason […]

It’s Bugaboo Time

Strollers are not a very “manly” thing to be excited about and so it is with a heavy heart that I have to admit that I am currently geeking out over one of our most recent purchases, a Bugaboo Bee. My wife and I have 2 children, and over the course of their lives we […]

Rewind to yesterday. My 4 yr old son decided to conduct a science experiment. I haven’t concluded if this was […]

An Eventful Weekend

When you have kids, most weekends tend to be eventful. This past weekend was a little more eventful than most. Friday night was by and large a normal day. We spent some time cleaning up the house and sitting around. Saturday morning showed up far too early and we had a soccer game at 11 […]

Kids Are Too Smart

My 4 yr old is allowed to play video games. We really restrict what content he is exposed to, but we do allow him some video game time. We let him play Sly Cooper on the PS2 until we saw a negative change in his behavior. He got obsessed and did nothing but talk about […]

Shots Suck

I hate getting shots so I can totally symphatize that my kids also hate getting shots. Unfortunately for my oldest, yesterday was the fun Dr. visit that comes with having a birthday. This time it came with a 4-pack of shots. I don’t remember what the vaccinations were for, but I can still picture his […]

Happy Birthday Ethan

Today my son turns 4. I can’t even begin to express what a roller coaster ride the last 4 years have been, but to see the person he is growing up to be is truly amazing. It’s hard sometimes to remember that he is only 4 years old. His vocabulary and mannerisms are that of […]
