Blonde Bear the Morning After the Night Before

We were out at Superstore in Coquitlam this morning. Blonde Bear was feeling a little under the weather from hitting the bottle a little too heavily the night before so she wanted to wear shades to protect her eyes from the bright lights… As well she is always cognizant of the paparazzi who follow her […]

Sleeping Through the Night

The twins have entered a new phase that is somewhat welcome and somewhat inconvenient. For the last couple of nights Annalie and Story have slept through the night. This is a very welcome phase for them to have moved into. The less convenient part of this phase is that they both now wake up at […]

The Projectile Vomit

I have seen the stuff of legend; I have actually seen the projectile vomit…live, in action. Annalie, Story, Caragh and I are nursing colds. With all of us having colds, it adds that extra dimension of nifty to our days and nights. As any parent will tell you, we (parents, that is) do most activities in […]

An ages-old hazing ritual

One thing that really does not make anybody feel better is the, “Well, you think you are going through tough times and are tired? WELL! when I had my kids it was….” Thanks for the empathy pal. I do not doubt that it was just as tough for you trying to function all day after being […]

Weekend visitors doing the Lord’s work

I forgot to talk about the visitors we received on Saturday morning before we headed out for our day on the town. This was just too funny, in hindsight, to not mention. Caragh and I were both in full flight trying to get the twins fed, diapers changed, boobs pumped, diaper bag packed, stuff and […]

A lovely weekend sleep-in

It is up and at ’em for another day! Story is in the exersaucer…a device brought to us from an Afghani prison used to torture prisoners by preventing them from sleeping. It is similar in sound to someone gently taking all the plates, bowls and mugs from your kitchen, putting them in a plastic garbage […]

Garbage duty

Not only do I get the pleasure of changing the pissy diapers off the twins, this morning I had the extra pleasure of scraping the dirty diapers off our driveway. For some reason the crows decided our garbage cans must contain food. So they took advantage of the fact that our garbage cans were lying […]

My generally stinky attitude

Some have commented that I seem, well, let’s say, “gruff” with the people around me and the customer service people I encounter. And yes, this is in response to the emails I received re my Sears portrait experience and my offer to have Paul McCallum kick a field goal between the uprights of the next […]

Holiday-theme photo shoot

Want to spoil a perfectly sunny Saturday? Schedule your twin daughters in for an early morning Halloween photo shoot at your local Sears photo studio. More a little later…after the ringing stops in my ears and I am able to sit down comfortably without weeping uncontrollably.

Adapting to my new morning routines

It is amusing to look to the right of my screen and see the “Tag Cloud”. For those who may not know, the Tag Cloud shows the topics I write about most frequently. The larger the font for the topic, the more I have written about that topic. I would like to do a long […]
