The Souza

Yesterday afternoon, Saarah and I were in goofy sorts of moods, and we were making up words. I used the word “souza” in something I was saying, and she thought this was a pretty funny word. A few minutes later, she was busily looking at the corner for some reason, when out of nowhere, she … Continue reading

Puzzlepalooza 2012

Sick and tired of flimsy cardboard puzzle boxes falling apart, Nicole had the brilliant idea to switch most of the kids puzzles to Tupperware containers. Not only that, but she had the foresight to tape the the picture from each box to the inside of the lid so that the puzzles shouldn’t get mixed up. … Continue reading

Baoentoims Day

On the weekend we informed the kids that Valentines Day was this week. Upon this discovery, Saarah was so excited that when she started jumping up and down, she almost put her head through the ceiling. She’s a big fan of the day, despite the fact that she was completely unaware of any meaning or … Continue reading

Stinky Germs

Tevye and Saarah, after seeing a show, are always eager to reenact what they’ve just watched, and today was no exception. They will generally put their own spin on the events, and elaborate on the subject matter(see Rocket to the Cheese Moon). While it may look as though the kids are playing with some horrid … Continue reading

Too Darn Cold

While I try and get the kids outside as much as I can, there are some days that it’s just too darn cold or miserable. This past weekend, and now today, really exemplify that. On Saturday it warmed up to three degrees, which, if it had been sunny would have been a terrific day to … Continue reading

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
