Brown Bear gets a Toothbrush…and Uses It

Now that Brown Bear has her two front teeth in all their glory popping into place, she has her own toothbrush. So tonight Wifey called me up to the bathroom to get a photo of Brown Bear brushing her teeth. Wouldn’tcha know it, her camera and mine had dead batteries. I did manage to squeeze one […]

A Visit to Chapters Bookstore in Coquitlam

Yesterday it was raining so much and so hard that we decided to forgo our usual neighbourhood stroll and make it an inside day. So we headed down to the Coquitlam location of Chapters to look for picture books for the twins. And coolness of all cool things, I found the best picture book on […]

Meeting for The Vancouver Observer contributors

This afternoon/evening I was attending a meeting of the bloggers who contribute to the Vancouver Observer. It was a pleasure to talk with other bloggers in person, rather than only meeting up online. The most amazing thing for me though was the fact that after the meeting business was taken care (how to upload using Drupal), […]

Sunday at Quan’s Kitchen on Austin

Home again from our weekly breakfast at Quan’s. Story was her usual charming self this morning. She has become very vocal in the last couple of days and lets loose these piercing squeals that can be quite shocking to some. About half way through brekkie though she started squirming and acting all goofy. If her […]

Choices and plenty of fish

Launch from the Planetarium

Today was a day well spent. Up early and out of the house early…around 11am. Drove to Vancouver and did a little people watching while sitting at Four Brothers Pizza enjoying a coupla slices of pizza pie. Commercial Drive is the bomb for people watching. I love being able to keep a running commentary going about […]

Comic strip

My Mom cut a comic strip out of the paper for me. Picture two young females having a coffee, nicley dressed, a couple of hipsters. One saying to the other, “Norris and I have discussed having kids. We figure when we get sick and tired of proper rest, the theater, travel and having sufficient funds in […]

Word of the day; unrelenting

The word of the day today is “unrelenting”. That is what it is like being the Papa of twins today. Walking with them to the Starbucks, Story cried the entire time. Annalie slept. Now we are home, Annalie is wailing away. Hold her in my arms and she cries. Lay her in her crib, she […]
