Find Me On:
Toddler’s lone forehead stitch was removed today. Now let’s all stay healthy the rest of the year, okay?!?
Yesterday started with making pancakes and ended with a call from preschool that our toddler fell and hit his head on pavement walking back from the playground. Trip to the ER, forehead stitches. But he’s up and ready for school today. Damn tough kid.
Sick baby in the house, had to switch antibiotics for an ear infection / fever hovering around 103. Fever down this morning, so so far so good.
The fortunes of my days rise and fall now with whether or not a baby is pooping normally.
I love that Batkid story. The Make a Wish people and the regular citizens of San Francisco really did a good thing.
A friend is getting a divorce and we had no clue it was coming, so that kind of sucks (and makes you look at yourself in the mirror a little more closely).
Yesterday was a long one. When you take a toddler and a baby to the pediatrician for well visits at the same time after work, it’s REALLY busy there and takes a long time and the kids both got super grumpy and THEN they each had three shots, so they were grumpy, sore, and crying.
But they’re both healthy, so please excuse my tiny pity party.
For some reason it is very comforting to hear so many of us in the same boat. I’m married, two great kids, have a job and health insurance, but I definitely have those “What the hell am I doing?” moments.
It’s my birthday! I telecommuted, had a great lunch, got some books as gifts, went to a nice dinner with the fam, and now the kids are asleep and the wife and I are having wine and enjoying the silence.
Today was a good day. Getting over a cold, had a great sandwich for dinner, catching up on “Copper.”
Gotta say I totally agree. I used to be a comic nerd, loved the comic movies, and I still liked the Iron Man flicks, but… yeah, I don’t care who plays Batman.
Or the Great Gatsby.
I always read the EW link as “Ewwwww!” in my head when I see it, and today that is entirely appropriate.
I have to say, yesterday was a good day. Took the kids (3 and 1) to the park, a friend bought me the MP3s of a new album I mentioned I was looking forward to hearing, dinner with the wife (toddler meltdown in the restaurant at end of the meal, followed by him passing out in exhaustion in the car), and with the exception of that and getting up repeatedly overnight with teething baby and nonsleeping toddler demanding to see me, I really can’t complain!
The only real downside is that Vine is inspiring Jackasses, The Next Generation, which we really don’t need.
We just started watching “Friday Night Lights” in our house. Never seen it before! We needed something to watch after finishing… “Orange Is the New Black” (bringing it nicely back to this post!)
Well, the toddler is kind of being a monster sometimes because he’s almost 3 and dealing with a lot of emotions he doesn’t understand how to process (because he’s THREE). And the baby is teething and obsessed with crawling (as in, he doesn’t want to sleep at night; he wants to crawl) and while my wife works from home most of the time so the kids stay there with her, when the nights are sleep-free we get stressed and she gets mad at me and resents that I get to flee off to work in a quiet office and I feel powerless to help.
First-world problems, I know. The kids are healthy and happy, and we have a house to live in, so I try to keep things in perspective. Just wish I could HELP. I want to enjoy this time when the kids are this age, despite the stresses. I don’t want to wish them to school age and out of our house, despite how tempting it is to do that.
Hmm, so on top of everything I didn’t get to talk about, I missed this post yesterday because I was busy with work.
She probably screwed over all her white employees too, in terms of “might get rich someday.”
The underlying color in the NY Times story is the color green.
Tired. Sleep has been crap for a while now. Kind of depressed as a result.
I’m a joy to be around this week.
If you give to my kickstarter, I’ll record a DVD commentary for the movie of your choice! I have two kids under 3, so if the movie came out since 2010, I probably haven’t seen it, so there might be long periods of silence, followed by me saying, “Ohhh, look at that… hey, it’s that guy from that thing!”
Barf, just kidding!
How about Madonna, back when she was trying to sound like Posh Spice?
Hey, how about Posh Spice?!?
When slightly frustrating things happen to extremely annoying people.
Huh. Kirstie Alley’s ex-husband Parker Stevenson (an original Hardy Boy with Sean Cassidy) was also part of the original cast of Baywatch in the 1989 season.
I did not know that, but found it out in about three seconds after finishing the Scientology story.
That is why, I don’t care what anyone says, the internet is wonderful.

Looks like it’s a romantic comedy…
