Slurped-Up by a Forehead

When I was young, like nearly everyone, I wanted to look older than the number of candles on my birthday cake suggested I was. I would take it as a serious compliment when someone would try to guess my age and they overshot by two or three years, and I’d spend the remainder of the … Continue reading

The Stinky Ringhocker

As mentioned in previous posts, my darling daughter has a delightful way of coming up with names for things. Whether it’s a pink frog named “Kurt Banderchuck” or just calling people a Beem-Bom, she’s got quite the knack. Oh, you don’t remember? Well that’s understandable, it WAS a while ago now. Perhaps THIS will jog … Continue reading

Monsters, of the Fattest Variety

Some girls enjoy playing games where they pretend to be princesses, and if certain cartoons are to be believed(which they aren’t), there are an awful lot of princesses running around the world. The vast majority of them imply that a princess wears fancy dresses and drinks tea. A princess has to follow certain palace rules, … Continue reading

He’s YOUR Son

Normally a phrase used by mothers to imply that their son is doing something completely absurd or stupid that he could have ONLY picked up from his father. If not for teaching their sons how to act like morons, what is the ultimate point of fathers, anyway? It doesn’t even matter if the act of … Continue reading

But What if There’s Bears?

This summer we decided it was time to introduce the kids to one the most Canadian of all summer activities: Camping. It has been brought to my attention that “all the cool kids are doing it”, and if that isn’t an argument worth listening to, I don’t know what is. So, after having procured the … Continue reading

It all started a while back, and all quite innocently

How many times have I started blog posts like that? Perhaps I should heed my wife’s advice and start being a little more cautious of the things I encourage my children to do. They, like all kids, get stuck on one thing and run with it. Where most adults would be able to identify when … Continue reading

My Shirt’s a Belly

My Shirt’s a Belly

It happened! It finally happened! One day this summer, the most amazing thing happened. It’s the day that, almost as soon as a man finds out he’s going to be a father, he looks forward to the most. It’s not the birth of his beautiful child, or coming up with a fitting name. It’s not … Continue reading

I’ll Be Hugging You

When I started blogging again, I mentioned that I was hoping to start working in the near future. Well, as my first week of daily posts, followed by a week with only one might suggest, I was able to procure suitable employment. It wasn’t easy, let me tell you, but I did it. I had … Continue reading

Giant Slingshots, Corn, and Pumpkins

On Sunday(was it Sunday, or Monday? Oh, right, we were making Thanksgiving supper on Monday, and Saturday we were at the dreaded Mall, so it must’ve been Sunday) we went to one of those corn maze, pumpkin patch, fall-ridiculousness things. It’s located about an hour away, in the town of Truro. Now Truro is the … Continue reading
