The King of Rest and Restonic Beds

I am going to be in a contest with a select group of other dad bloggers to determine which one of us is the actual King of Rest. I am pretty confident that I will win the crown. One of the sponsors of the contest is Restonic Beds and to help me understand a little […]

The End of the Afternoon Nap NaBloPoMo Day 17

The age of the afternoon nap appears to have ended in our home. Getting our toddlers to nap was relatively easy but, goodness gracious, after the girls had slept in the afternoon, bed time was pure hell on wheels with screaming and fits. So last Sunday we thought we would try to go without the […]

A Night in the…

A couple of days ago I was on the Regent Seven Seas super-luxury cruise ship, the Navigator. The Navigator is a six-star luxury cruiser with suites of 1100 square feet. Suites that have a butler to make sure your eggs are cooked as you like them and to make sure your shoes are polished. What […]

The backgrounder; after the twins one year warranty check-up the doctor told us that the kids should be sleeping through the night.

On Valentine’s Day and Birthday Gifts

Today is Valentine’s Day. A day that men all over the world will eternally struggle with. All last week Wifey and I discussed today. The consensus was, as long as we are together with our twins, no need for gifts. So early this morning we get up and Wifey starts looking around; “Where did ya hide them.” […]

Breakfast is Served

I knew I should have stayed in bed today. My first clue? I poured Jimmy the blind Dog a bowl of Cheerios and myself a bowl of dog food. And we both ate what we were served and seemed to enjoy it as much as you can enjoy anything when you have not slept in ten months. […]

Change is Good

For Tricia…Anyone who knew me twenty or thirty years ago knows that I was a fiend for Led Zeppelin and Neil Young and Crazy Horse. I had a Jeep that I would drive around Kitsilano in with the top down and a 200 watt amp pumping the power to the banks of speakers that I replaced […]

Teeth and Huggies and all that kinda stuff
