Quote of the Day from Joey

 "Everybody said I pooped in my pants but I said I didn't and I wasn't lying this time."

It is always best to tell the truth now, isn't it....

Life Lessons

When my boys understand why I make them eat fudgesicles in the bathtub, then I will know I have raised them to be responsible adults.

Born to Rock

The other day Joey said "Everybody thinks I'm famous because everybody knows my name." 
Sweet child of mine, you are now ready to begin your rock star training.

"We're The Best Fraternity and All the Others Suck!"

Poor Joey got up to go potty tonight and had a bit of a mishap... something that Daddy hasn't witnessed since his junior year in college.   The old fraternity pastime of 'walking around half out of it and peeing in the trashcan.' 

Fortunately, it wasn't alcohol-induced like the more authentic moments at the house.  In Joey's defense - #1 He was operating in near darkness due to his failure to turn on the bathroom light.  #2 Our bathroom trashcan is white just like our commode.  It also had recently been emptied and the liner had not yet been replaced.  

Still, it brought back a few memories.... and the realization that he'll be having those same crazy college experiences before I'm ready for it (although I hope it's as few as absolutely necessary.)  

In an odd way... I'm just glad I got to be there for the first one.

Math for Dummies

This photo was taken in Milo's classroom. I think I've figured out why he's struggling in Math...

Joey the Stool Pigeon

This year's holiday trip included a visit to daddy's friend Greg who is in Lansing Correction Facility. I've tried to use the whole situation to explain to the boys the concept of prison and right and wrong, etc. While the boys don't actually come with us, I remind them that our friends are always our friends regardless of their current circumstances in life.

On our way back home... just after midnight on New Year's Eve... I got pulled over in some small stoplight-free town in Southern Oklahoma.

When the officer approached the car Joey yelled from the backseat "Hey Dad! Hey Dad! Tell that police officer man about your friend who's in jail!! Dad! Tell that police officer about your friend who's in jail!!"
