January 2009


My best friend Josh was born today, 33 years ago.

Yes, 33 years ago. He’s getting old, but don’t hold that against him. He’s still as cool as he was back in high school:

Well… at least, he still tries to be as cool as he tried to be back in High School.

Happy Birthday Josh.

Today I was changing Grayson’s diaper, and the little tab broke, and I said “shit” really softly, while trying to make it another word, and immediately after I said it Grayson says “Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit. Shiiiiit!” … all I could think to say was “Don’t tell your mother I taught you that word.”

Evan sent this photo today:

Ella has a new puppy. His name is Cash… like Johnny Cash. Cute puppy!

Love these boys:

Something tells me Jack knows what he did wrong today, after getting this email from Christine:

Let me recap what has taken place since you left.

While I was in the bathroom with Grayson, Jack went upstairs and made a HUGE mess.

1) Food, water, litter, and cat poop all over the floor
2) Sweet Peas dishes in the litter box that was half dumped out because Jack wanted to get him out of there WHILE HE WAS POOPING
3) Toothpaste all over the cat kennel and bathroom
4) Bed from cat kennel in sink with water running and spilling over.
5) Did I mention cat poop all over the floor.
and best of all…
6) Sweet Pea was covered in toothpaste.
Oh, and your tooth brush was on the floor in the middle of all.

Needless to say, I was pissed.

Jack got yelled at, a spanking, and sent to his room crying for about 30 minutes while I cleaned up. Sweet Pea got a bath. When I was finally finished with everything, Grayson peed on the carpet in front of the stairs as I was coming down. I hadn’t had a chance to get a diaper on him yet.

I told Jack that Rowan would not be coming over and he has to give up Optimus Prime until after you get home and have a talk with him about what happened. I also told him that he is not allowed upstairs without our permission. If he goes up without are permission, he will be in BIG trouble. After today I think he knows what BIG trouble looks like.

I love my wife.
