A Rocket to the Cheese Moon

It has been discovered by my two brilliant children that if you turn a dollhouse on its side, it will become a rocket! Now, this is pretty darn awesome, as I would think that if NASA had figured this out, the entire Space Program could have potentially saved billions of dollars. Perhaps I should write … Continue reading

Snowballs on the Ocean

On Monday we had some running around to do, and when we had completed everything, it was almost lunch-time, so we started heading home. As we were walking along, Tevye inquired where we were going, and I told him that we were going home to eat lunch. Suddenly he looked forlorn, and I asked if … Continue reading

Upstairs Hockey and Our Magical Basement

There are two sorts of hockey played in our household; Basement Hockey, consisting of regular sticks and a classic orange hockey ball. We use a clothes-drying rack turned on its side as a net, and a goal crease made from hockey tape on the cement floor. Then there’s Upstairs Hockey, consisting of small hockey sticks … Continue reading

Queen of the Photo-Bomb

The other day I had to take Tevye to the optometrist, because when we registered him for school it was discovered that he has no depth perception. Now, this came as quite a shock to me, as he and I play hockey in the basement all the time, and he’s got a one-timer as good … Continue reading

The Most Disgusting Creature in the World!

I like to consider myself relatively informed, whether it be about current events, upcoming movies, or methods for getting out of housework that my wife has demanded, um nope, sweetly asked me to complete. I’ve tried many strange foods, and am open to trying many more. There are, however, certain things that I was just … Continue reading

Pepe le Pew’s Here!

On Tuesday morning, the kids and I had gone to the grocery store and on our way to the car, while I was pushing the cart, Saarah looks right up at me and very assertively says “Tatte, bring your face right here!”. Not really sure what I was getting into, and not wanting to disappoint, … Continue reading

The NHL All-Snore Game

Like many hockey fans, we could really live without the All-Star weekend. I suppose the Skills Competition is kind of fun to watch, but the game itself is about on par with a pre-tournament game between Canada and Latvia, but without any sense of national pride. We’ll always end up watching it, but we wont … Continue reading

The Unseen Wedding

I’ve been to a number of weddings, and each and every one has been a day to remember. There are few things in life more beautiful than two people professing their love for one another, and vowing to spend the remainder of their lives together, no matter what adversity the couple should be confronted with. … Continue reading

The Picnic Fort

This large pink and princess monstrosity is what’s known as a “bed tent”. Normally it lives atop Saarah’s bed, and she sleeps inside it, but since yesterday it has been located in the middle of her room. I’m not sure why it’s now in such an awkward location, as I was downstairs, making a great … Continue reading

Banana Muffins a la Saarah

Yesterday afternoon I was busy cleaning, writing, and doing all the things that I normally do during the day. I decided to go to the kitchen to get some coffee(a common occurrence, I might add). I was somewhat surprised to see little Miss Saarah, standing atop a stool, and making banana oatmeal muffins. As you … Continue reading
