Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One…

The two stinkers have discovered how jokes work, and have been attempting to put them to good use. It all started one day in the grocery store. As we entered the second hour of my wife trying to figure out exactly which shampoo will do the best job of causing large quantities of her hair … Continue reading

The Big Tooty Bum (Warning, this story contains farting)

We were driving home yesterday afternoon, and something happened. Somebody had a big stinky toot. It could’ve been Tevye, it could’ve been Mama, it could’ve been anyone… The point of this story isn’t who did the crime, and should therefore do the time, but rather, the aftermath of this unfortunately malodorous event. For some reason … Continue reading

Misheard Song Lyrics

We’ve all been there: There’s a song on the radio, you’ve heard it many times before, and you love to sing along. It could be an old song or a new song, it really doesn’t matter, you love it, and something deep down inside you will NOT let you hear this song without belting out … Continue reading

Nearly Naked Aerobics

Yes, the title may seem misleading, given that my children are both fully-clothed in this picture, but, as you will soon discover, it’s more accurate than it would appear. Trying to keep up a physically-active lifestyle while it’s stupidly cold outside(-18C today) can be difficult. The level of difficulty is increased when you are the … Continue reading

Beem-Bomisms Friday – The Ludicrous Hamburger

Well here we are for another edition of “Beem-bomisms Fridays”, where I give you a taste of the ridiculous and wacky things that come out of my children’s mouths. Even though last Friday had a different name, it’s the same idea. There are a couple that I’ll tell you about that were discussed either in … Continue reading

Christmas in February

Tevye and Saarah have this wonderfully annoying habit of bringing out every single toy, book, and blanket that they own at the same time. If I don’t stay on top of them, repeatedly reminding them that they need to keep their toys relatively tidy, then within an hour I find myself avoiding a veritable tidal … Continue reading

Somedays I feel like this

This was the comic on my “Non Sequitur” desk calendar yesterday. While I’m generally quite happy writing, some days I have to wonder if this is an accurate portrayal of being a blogger:

Did we move to the Arctic?

Last night I was giving Nicole a sneak preview of today’s photos, and as soon as I opened up iPhoto, she exclaimed “Where did we move to? The Arctic?!” Now obviously we didn’t move above the Arctic Circle, though some days in the middle of February, when the harbour has been frozen solid for a … Continue reading

A Cure for the Grumpies

It is normally right here that you would see a picture, but I’ve decided to take a slightly different approach today. Oh, don’t worry, there will be pictures, but not until after a brief explanation of today’s post. Yesterday, it would seem, everyone had a serious case of the Grumpies. Not necessarily in our house. … Continue reading

“Beem-bomisms” Fridays

Wow, two posts in one day! Don’t get too excited, though, as this one isn’t so much a post, as it is an announcement. Over the weekend I realized that there were numerous Beem-bom-isms that I meant to include in “Goofy Noses means Spanish Coconuts”, and my forgetfulness bothered me, especially because there were some … Continue reading
