Poonami time

Just before I am about to slip out the door to go to live-blog (at www.theleftcoast.ca) the BC Country Music Awards show at the Red Robinson Theatre, I see that Story has had a massive diaper filler, what we “affectionately” call a poonami, and it has breeched the edges of the diaper. So, it is hose down child, […]

Sunday breakfast

Story and I are now back home after the traditional Sunday morning breakfast at Quan’s Kitchen. This morning Story’s mother was awake before we could sneak out of the house so Story was actually properly clothed this time. Usually I sneak away early so whichever twin comes with me is attired in her sleepwear. This morning […]

The girls also went to the library and got themselves their very own library cards. Not too sure why […]

If a baby skips her afternoon nap the result is awful. By bed time the twins were both screaming and crying, arching their little backs and throwing themselves around as if they were in agony. The truth of the matter is that we were in agony from their cries, not them. However, a little warm […]

3 AM conversations

You know you are really tired when at 3 AM you talk to a six moth old baby like they are a suspect in a police investigation. The “conversation” went something like this; Baby, “waaah, waaah, waaah, waaah…” with arms and legs flapping uncontrollably. Me, “Look kid, it is 3 AM. This is when we sleep. […]

Ahh the irony of it all…

My partner has a bit of a rough hand at things that do not immediately do as she wants. For example, if she wants to open a jar of mustard and it will not open she goes, all too quickly for my liking, to the biggest “hammer” in her arsenal to get at the mustard. […]

The satisfaction of…

There are few things in life that are as satisfying as holding a fussing baby in your arms and seeing her transition from fussy to sleepy. It is simply beautiful in the peaceful nature of the transition. And then, once she is asleep to see a smile tease across her face as she sleeps, you […]
